Winter fantasy by Ironshod Winter fantasy by Ironshod
A huge thank you to for the idea that inspired this painting.

Every year I paint a winter themed fantasy artwork to send out on my cards. This scene shows that even elves and dragons like to brighten up their woodland with a little seasonal decoration ;)

That dragon is so majestic and mysterious, yet it has a lot of personality for some reason. :) Same goes for the elf. I love the detail on the scales of the dragon's chest and head.

Very delightful!!The only thing i would have done different is to have the dragon actually in the air with the rider putting the star on top.To give a more dynamic feel,so it doesn't seem as limited.I love the background forest.(I wasn't trying to down-play you just giving positive suggestions)
But really good job!This piece gives a real wintery/christmasy feeling

Sadly, the dragon was suffering from a cold and a moment later, sneezes...


The children thought it was the best christmas tree ever at least.



Awesome work by the way. :P
