Black Dragon by BenWootten Black Dragon by BenWootten
This is an interior illustration for the Pathfinder Chronicles: Dragons Revisited (OGL), Paizo Publishing, LLC.

Great opportunity to have a bash at reimagining the core Dragons for the Paizo setting. I feel a great honor to have drawn creature that have been part of my mythology for 28 years now. Glee!!

He looks more regal than his D&D counterpart.

I've been writing (not really a book but... sort of like... chapters i guess that, well, who knows) about two dragon huntresses that have been assigned to kill a huge black dragon (bare with me). I was looking on google for images to help me visualize my dragon and came across this and the flying version of this. I loved it, it is beautiful. I especially liked what you did with the wings (attached to the body all the way down to the tail) and his underbelly with those awesome scales and that violet/purple effect in the skin or membrane. I would humbly would request that i base my ideas for my dragon from this piece of art. He would be somewhat different to a degree such as the eyes... they would purple and larger, his head would be larger i proportion to his body and he would have four straight horns/spikes protruding from the back of his skull instead of curving and a few minor nit-picks i.e. larger jaw and what not. I don't want to cause any problems and restrain myself from using this if you wished.
 Thank you for your consideration

I can't believe I finally found the original artist for this. I'm not a Pathfinder person, don't even know what it is, but I've seen this image throughout the internet, especially around google images, and this is without a doubt the sexiest dragon I've EVER seen. Your work is absolutely fantastic and this might get me into Pathfinder now so...you're amazing.
