Secret garden by Ironshod Secret garden by Ironshod
I painted this image as the last in a series of girls and dragons for a calendar of my art that it is be published by Heye for 2011 (yes no typo in the date there - they plan a long way in advance!)

This small dragon gives comfort to a friend who is feeling a little sad.

A big thank you to *faestock for the photo reference used for this figure.

This is really cute, love the intimacy between the girl and dragon, much like a loyal dog is that dragon.

When I first read A Song Of Ice And Fire, in my head Sansa Stark looked quite a bit like this.

This is so much emotion here, it's just such a beautiful scene.  I particularly like the look on the dragon's face.  And you chose great colors for it, the greens, reds and blues all fit together quite nicely.  Amazing work.  :)

I saw this painted on a slate picture stand, at a local shop, and had to buy it. Most people are afraid of dragons, but she seems to be its friend. They look like they truly understand each other, despite human prejudices. It reminds me of true friendship and the purity of real love.

I love it.

Oh my goodness!!!! I can't believe you painted this!!! :love: My uncle owns a New Age shop and I bought a box there a year ago with this on it! :love: It's so gorgeous, it's one of the favirote things I've bought from him! That's so neat that I can now see the art in full and that I know who drew it! :love: I love it, to say the very least, it's gorgeous :love:
