Dragons by nell-fallcard Dragons by nell-fallcard
:icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:


I was very into mythology years ago. One of the things that fascinated me for long was the different kinds of dragons and the specific features from each one.
Some months ago, this scene came to my mind: my very personal vision from a rainbow dragon and a red dragon. I started painting right away.
This one took me AGES!! Mostly because is huge as hell. You can see some details and some WIP steps here: [link]

Hope you like it



EDIT:

Wow! A DD!!! I never, ever expected this!! Thank you very much!

I have been going through your work and have to say I'm in love with your style of art. You have a couple I could not stop looking at because they are so similar to what Ive imagined my main character would look like if I had the ability to draw him.

I have a question for you, and I hope you are willing to put yourself out there. I am working on a series called The Circle of Steel Chronicles. My first novel was recently published but the artist I hired to illustrate the cover sent me terrible art work, took my money and I had no choice but to settle with a cover I wasnt happy with.

Would you be willing to work on a few book covers for me? Right now it's a 3 book series but I plan to make more eventually.

Sure! 

Let me know size, style, level of detail and I can offer a quote.
Cheers!

the cover is 6x9 in the front and same as the back plus about 2 inches for the spine. it is to be double those dimensions, so Id be looking at a photo of about 14x18 inches

The book will be titled Dragon's Gate: Book #2 in the Circle of Steel Chronicles. The Dragon's Gate is a portal and the main destination in this book. I've envisioned the Gates location in a valley between two mountains.

The Dragon's Gate itself engulfs the valley, allowing no access past. The shape is circular with a dragon on both sides holding it in place. I am thinking it should look old, dragon statues and portal alike. I would like to leave the look of it in your hands, put your imagination into it. Ive seen your work and Im sure you can take it to where my vision is
I hope that's enough info on what Im looking for, but if you need more, just ask. If your still interested, I await your response

Amazing I took a closer look at the mix of colors and tried to see how detailed it was and I must say it is magnificent you have talent. You could probably make paintings for a living.
