Dragon head by ~deligaris is one awesome headshot of a dragon. The details are nothing short of amazing, and the overall technique used to bring it to life will just take your breath away. ( Suggested by damphyr and Featured by dinyctis )

That gal drew it in traditional media by using Deligaris work for reference, I don't think it counts as stealing? Woulda been nice to credit the author of the original work, though.

I wasn't sure if it counted as stealing which is why I didn't say anything to scenicart.  I wanted to show it to Deligaris just in case, though.

Very well done, I love the horns and how his mouth seems to be glowing with heat. I can like *feel* how hot it would be to stand next to him. I also love the small, thorn like spikes protruding above and below his eye.

This is such a beautiful painting and one of my favorite dragon pieces on dA!

I found it had been used in a cheap Dragon/Fantasy picture book I saw in the childrens book department in KMart (badly cut'n'pasted on a crappy background- kind of insulting) and recognized it straight away along with several other edited pictures of dragons/creatures. I took a photo of it on my phone cam, but it's long gone now :( I wish I could find it again :doh:

I saw this picture in an iPhone app, one that you have to pay for as well. So I don't know if they got your permission to use it. If they didn't and you'd like to know more I'll try to track down the app again if you like.
