Dragon's Fury by BenWootten Dragon's Fury by BenWootten
This is my take on the classic Dragon roasts knight and soldiers stupid enough to venture into it's domain.

I was approached by Rob Eisenberg, who has launched the website RPG With Me, [link] , to come up with a cool classic fantasy image to be the banner for his website. The site has gone live, check it out.

Hi there, I just wanted to let folks know that I have limited edition prints of the Dragon's Fury, and Quiet time for sale. The print run is limited to 50. The print quality is great, rich colour reproduction in archival inks and acid free high quality matte photo rag.

There are two sizes of the Dragon piece:

50 x 13 cm ( 19.7 x 5 inches) for $50 + postage
90 x 23 cm ( 35.4 x 9 inches) for $120 + postage

why do the knights even attempt to slay dragons?
i mean, i get that they want to protect their village and all, but they could make some peace treaty with them...

I would really like to know if this is still available as a print, and if so what the price is.
Because I would love to give this to my brother for Christmas, but I can only afford about 15.

Please reply ASAP

Thanks!

Hi I am really sorry about not getting back to you earlier Xmas was a very busy time for me and I let replies on DA slip. I hope you got something nice for your bro.

I could sort you out with something for his B'day if you are interested, I could possibly get you a smaller of the print sizes at a price that you can afford, postage may be a problem but lets look into that if you are keen.

Cheers Ben

Don't worry, I got him season two of his favourite TV series so that was all right.

Roughly how much would postage be do you think.

Amazing work reflecting passion in the subject. There are similarly great works on the difficult subject of capturing the moment of confrontation between dragon and knight. I like this as you are including companions to the knight as well. The fire power is fearsome and makes you wonder if the knight and his companions survived the inferno, I truly hope they survivied and launched their counter offensive (Idea for another painting?)
I would like to have your permission to use this image as cover photo in my facebook profile. It goes without saying that I will give credit to you for this beautiful work of art.

I am super flattered by your comments:) I am sorry to say none survived and follow up piece would only be the dragon sleeping off his meal:)

I would be stoked if you use this on your facebook page:)

Totally Epic!  

I truly love this piece, you have an amazing talent! Even as a sketch this image would be impressive but fully rendered in such detail and quality, it's just spectacular. The composition is first rate, everything is so balanced. The Dragon is so menacing and imposing within the frame (love his skin detail).

The drama created within the scene is so intense and violent, I can really sense the movement and struggle of every figure (their silhouettes are beautiful), the immense pressure of the inferno bearing down on the main character, the roaring sound of the terrible blaze bellowing from deep within the beast, and the fierce heat and danger of their desperate situation!

I especially love how the struggle of the main character, is accentuated by the whipping and flapping of his robes, so cool. (he is exceptionally well drawn and painted).

The lighting for me probably the greatest achievement, it's so dynamic with beautiful contrast from a gorgeous pallet and is so detailed and subtle in the reflections and textures. Though above all, I have to say, the way you captured the colours of fire and heat haze and all its glowing effect and debris is truly masterful, it reminds me of the skill shown by the great painters of centuries ago.

But it's all subtle and so realistically captured, nothing is overdone, just a resplendent and awesome portrait of a breathtaking moment in time!

My favourite dragon poster has for many years been:

gistlabs.net/Dragon_Forest/pic…

But I am thinking that maybe now, it’s yours!

Thanks so much for this!

PS prints are for sale if you ever feel so inclined, I can sign it personally to you:)
