Black Dragon, take off by BenWootten Black Dragon, take off 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!!

Hi there, I am stoked you like this piece and flattered you would like to use it on your novel. But unfortunately the rights are owned by Paizo Publishing and I can't give permission for it to be used for other products.

Hello!


It is a VERY awesome drawing, and I got to ask: May I use it as a cover to a novel, on a writing site? I will of course say it's you there have made it :)
