Dragon Obsession – The Visual Files


 Dragon Lake by Michael Whelan

This is the second Michael Whelan piece I’ve featured and it also happens to be a cover photo from the same Melanie Rawn series, Dragon Prince. As you can see On the right, I’ve tried to re-create it with colored pencil but it’s nowhere close to being finished (…or as vibrant. I’m definitely going to have to branch out into different mediums for this one). There are several different types of dragons that people envision when they read a story and I have to say that this photo comes really close to my “ideal” dragon.
