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 :)

The girl there is an elf who went on a perilous journey to save the last few remaining water dragons in the kingdom. When all else fails and the evil sorcerer whose wish is to destroy all dragons seems to succeed, the elf found the last remaining water dragon of its kind.

First thing that popped into my mind: The girl is a young elf princess in a kingdom near the ocean, heir to the throne, and her family was slaughtered by water dragons. She was away at the time but when she got back months later, she found the castle in ruins. She also found a dragon egg left behind. The dragon egg hatched and she became the first in a very long time to "befriend" a dragon and bond with it - thus creating a dragon shaped mark on her arm, enhancing her powers and making her hunted by many. The mother of the dragon also came back looking for the egg but found out it was gone, and she realized the elf princess took the baby dragon. Then the hunt begins.

Oh, my goodness. This is a most beautiful piece, but... um... did you sell this picture to other people? Because my living room clock has this picture on it, and it has no copyright details on it. :(
