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!!

your work with dragons is incredible! Would you do a Panzer-dragoon-eque dragon?

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 :)

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.

Cheers Ben

Beautiful dragon! :3 It is absolutely stunning. So much detail, in both the danger it poses, and it's beauty, it is truly a peice of art. One of the best dragons I have seen. ^^

I lack the words to describe these dragons... it seems to me that Gorgeous doesn't even begin to cover it.
I've been pretty faithful to the good ol' D&D dragon designs, but now I'm really starting to waver.
