I am excited to announce I have created a youtube channel. I hope to make it a place where you can see more about the process of creating the artworks for the modern dragon. It has been quite a challenge learning the software and skills needed (although not super complicated) it was always intimidating to me. So I’m chuffed to have this first video under my belt. I am thankful for your support both here, my Patreon page and now my youtube channel.
If there are any aspects of my art you would like to see in my videos let me know. I hope they will become a fun part of the modern dragon experience.
The only thing more dangerous than a wolf in sheep’s clothing is a dragon in wolfs clothing. Dragons are the undisputed apex predator of every food chain. Their cunning and tenacity have allowed them to maintain a low profile in our modern era. Forsaking their old hunting tactics of raining fire down from above, openly flying the skies and generally being highly conspicuous, they rather opt for more stealthy operations like seamlessly blending in with their desired prey, getting them acclimatized to their presence, gaining their trust and waiting for the ideal time to strike.
There are few things so happy as a well fed dragon. The smaller you are the easier you are to fill.
So it lends itself that the smallest dragons are the happiest, and none so easily pleased as the egg eating dragon. Chicken farmers beware!
The modern dragon is not an easy creature to find. Dragons in modern times are elusive, shy, secretive creatures. They are, for the most part, but a shadow of what once was.
When I heard of a junk yard which had problems with their guard dogs going missing my suspicions were aroused. After many painstaking hours my suspicions were confirmed. It was a ‘Little Red’, a distant descendant of the great Red Fire Breathing Dragons of old who’s pride it was to take captive cities and demand sheep, cattle and virgins for their daily fee.
Thankfully the Little Red’s influence seems limited to feline companions who get warmth from his belly and bring him mice in return. It would also seem his hunger for guard dog has helped to cement the friendship…
