Water dragon by Ironshod Water dragon by Ironshod
I've been wanting to paint a water dragon for ages! I also have an idea for a giant one swimming underwater, but that'll have to wait for now.

What do you think is the story behind this image? It just sort of happened and doesn't have one, but I feel that it should. If any of the writers amongst you would like to suggest an idea it would be really interesting to hear what you come up with. Or if anyone has a better name than "water dragon" please let me know - I am afraid I am pretty useless at thinking of names for my paintings! ;)

This was a commission, but the client just requested a female character in water with a fantasy theme, and you know me, any excuse to paint a dragon :giggle:

Hope you like it :)

I like the word "Enraptured". Now who is the one enraptured? He (dragon), seems enthralled with her. While she is looking at him with a sort of loving motherly look. Just my thoughts. I really love this! Truly beautiful work!

This one is my absolute favourite! I still have my pull-out poster from last years calendar. There so many story ideas sitting behind this image! Mostly I think about the irony of a typically fire-based fantasy creature being instead a water creature.

This is my all time favourite of your pieces. It's amazing, maybe the story to it is that this woman was longing for a child so she goes to some ancient temple and there is a pool that can grant you any wish but comes with a cost. So she asks for a child but got a child dragon, instead of hating it she loves it even more because of the beauty it has....??? Lol, may not be the best but a fun idea i just had. <3
