There are few places safer for a unicorn foal than a small, sheltered clearing in the forest home of his brethren. Settled in the soft grass, this young creature will one day grow into a proud adult unicorn, a graceful and elusive protector of the wilds.
The original painting is sold, but I do have prints available!
This was the first time we ever did an exclusive for a convention, for Phoenix Comicon 2011. The prints were 11″ x 17″ and turned out beautifully! We made exactly 100 copies, all signed and hand-numbered. They were quite successful at the show!
The duality depicted by a phoenix and a dragon is most often seen in Asian artwork – the yin and yang, masculinity and femininity, light and dark. I really love the concept, but wanted to put my own spin on the art and use a western-style dragon and my own style of phoenix. The slightly muted color scheme gives it a slightly more antique feel, as well.
This is a pattern of dragons created as a tessellation. A tessellation is a pattern repeated in such a way that there’s no space left in-between. Think M.C. Escher with his fish, birds, lizards, and such…
Dragons, though? Well, I do like a challenge!
Credit goes to Tessellations.org for instructions on creating complex patterns like this!
Keesa is a creature known as a riftwalker dragon, a strange, jet-black beast whose eyes, mouth, and even blood glow with an otherworldly, pale purple energy. Contrasting their fearsome appearance, their scales are so fine as to feel velvety, and their wings catch the light in iridescent hues.
Riftwalkers are often mistrusted by the other dragons of Eldlor and feared by many of the other races for their unnatural appearance and dark history. They are now so rare as to be thought extinct by most.
