Gold Dragon by BenWootten Gold 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!!

((Wow, this is so amazing! I love how you absolutely capture the essence of each colour in each and every dragon design you have created! Of course, a common interpretation of gold is luxury, and in this you have captured it so well! Look how classy the dragon is. :D))

This is probably my favourite drawing of a gold dragon I've seen so far, although I do always find myself enjoying extra spiky things.
