The Great Red by Netarliargus The Great Red by Netarliargus
It's Tholaxxius, one of my dragons from the "Twin Fires" I've done this as some sort of reference sheet. To give you an idea of the scale of the dragon, I've added the figure of King Izmir down by his claws.

Done in CS3 in about 12 hours. I'm pretty satisfied how it came out, in both color and anatomy.

Fullview for a better quality image.

It's more of a synopsis of a book isn't it? It's a bit hard to review a synopsis.

Very nice colpouring again ^^. The only thing i have to point out are these fire brushes, i personally do not like them, somehow they ruin the athmosphere a bit.

Thanks, I was trying out new ways to draw flames, I like how they turned out compared to my earlier versions.
One way to get better is trying out new stuff, I may have gone a little overboard here but it's still a valuable lesson. :)

It would take a lot of guts to take on a dragon if a human tries to fight one.

Or if the human is actually a disguised dragon himself. :)

It's the dragonfear, you'd have to have an iron will not to just give in to panic and run. ;)
