Encounter by Deligaris Encounter by Deligaris
It's been a while since I made a dragon. :) I was working on it every now and then during my sleepless nights. This is one of the most time-consuming paintings, since the detail was optimized for a large size print (5000x2500 px), so some things like the decoration on the armor are not visible here. For the head I used as a base a raw 3D model of a dragon head that I had created in ZBrush ([link]), and then I shaded each scale individually, like everything else. I hope you like it :)

Made in Photoshop.
Thanks for viewing!

Dragon: "Good Evening, Sir Knight! Do you perhaps need some assistance?

Knight: *Attempts to swing sword* *fails*

Dragon: "Uh, yes. The sword. Do you need help carrying it?"

Knight: *Tries to swing again* *fails again*

Dragon: "Yes, it's a lovely sword Sir. But it seems a bit big for you. Would you like some help?"

:D (Big Grin)

Was it a *random* encounter? *suggestive/joking/sarcastic eyebrow raise*

This is just absolutely fantastic! Especially the details on the dragons! I can almost feel the atmosphere from the picture, and imagine the dragon's head come closer and closer... Wonderful job!

This is really good. I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to use the model of the head as a base for a dragon I'm writing about.

That is one crazy-insane awesome-looking dragon. VERY impressive detail.
That is some wicked armor and weaponry on the warrior, also.

Woot for ZBrush! Do you have a full dragon model that you'd like to see rigged and animated? I love your dragons, they are gorgeous. I'd like to rig and animate a dragon for a demo reel but don't have a model that I like. I'm picky, I know, but...gotta have a great Dragon! ^_^ Credit is absolutely a given. ^_^
