Once Upon A Time by Ironshod Once Upon A Time by Ironshod
This is a new artwork that I just completed for my 2014 dragon themed calendar. As the months unfold the images will tell a story, but for now I'll let you, the viewer, decide what will happen next :)

I freaking love dragons and you have officially become my favourite artist. Holy crap..... I love your work. It is so delicate and bold and holds such immense beauty in all the small and intricate details. This has got to be one of my most favourite pictures so far... all though choosing is a very hard thing.  All of them are absolutely wonderful and special in their own way, they are unique.

I love the emotion! It appears as if the girl is kind and the dragon is trying to be mean but failing! So sweet!

How do we decide?  I think the girl should discover the dragon is her long lost love and she is really a dragon in her true form.  She's trapped in a human body by a spell cast by an evil wizard.
