Bronze Dragon by BenWootten Bronze 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 re-imagining 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!!

Oh, that Dragon!
Oh, that water.

How on earth do you paint water like that?

I love all of your dragons, but the Bronze has always been my favorite of the Metallics or Chromatics.  Beautifully rendered, lovely choices of color, dynamic motion...it's all there!

The colors and names seem the same.

That series was discontinued because of financial problems :C  But I think they have another spin-off series or something.

I love all the little details - the scales and textures in the wings, and the fin-like tail. Reminds me of a lion fish in a way... :love:

I was having a tough time trying to decide which one to comment on, but I think this one is one of my favorites. And I love the way you started making some portions turn a greenish color as bronze would after awhile. Awesome dragons! :D
