Here Be Dragons by Gejda Here Be Dragons by Gejda
Aaaaand done! :D 

If you follow me on IG, you probably already saw some sneak peaks of this one. It took a lot of work and overpainting - I created the environment from scratch, and had to really fight my laziness not to use a ready-made dragon... but I succeeded! So, this one is also made of several separate parts of different animals. The image was indirectly inspired by Anthony Ryan's "The Waking Fire", which I definitely recommend if you like good fantasy, dragons (duh) and unique worlds. ;) 

This will also be a premade cover soon, so stay tuned!

Ahh no wonder! :)!  Two reasons I immediately loved this. :sun:!

Typically, I can't stand anything depicting dinosaurs; and although I did first think this was a dinosaur it's done in such a way that it's soft looking, and painterly (which I LOVE) ... I see you really have painted him though, so, no wonder. :)!!

Also, it congers up feelings of fantasy and curiosity - not fear - as one typically sees in these types of scenes.  I even get the feeling the dragon is friendly (at least towards this girl) ; they both have a vibe of wanting to get to know one another. :)!  Well done!

Thank you! The point was to depict more of a curiosity than danger, so I'm really happy you think I managed to achieve that. :love:

Oh you definitely did. :)!  Also caused me to enjoy a work which I first thought to contain a dinosaur - and that Never happened before. (I've been able to look at dinosaur works, fave them; admiring and acknowledging the work which went into it; but never 'enjoyed' them.  This. I enjoy. (and I still think he looks like a dinosaur. ^^ :)!  So, well done! :sun:! )

Maybe because I am seeing it at night and I see a snake-ish body, but I would definitely be running away from it. :eager:
