Ancient Silver Dragon by BenWootten Ancient Silver Dragon by BenWootten
Here is an older silver dragon I did for Pathfinder a while back, late last year I think. First old metallic dragon I have done for Paizo, hope you like it.

That is what I thought, but apparently in Pathfinder he is silver. I was just happy to paint another dragon:)

So this isn't an Ancient Silver Dragon. Instead, it's Aspu (aka the deity of good-aligned dragons). If so, the title is kind of misleading.

Was this one intended to be the illustration of Apsu, the dragon god?

There is that picture used in the Inner Sea Faiths book, where Apsu is a massive silver dragon that dwarfs all the other visible old dragons around it...

Just out of curiosity, as I really liked the idea and this majestic dragon of yours... And because of the other illustration I mentioned (I really loved that one!).

This is awesome.

Art aside, I was always partial to Todd Lockwood's dragon designs; the Silver in particular.

Silver and Bronze dragons, my favorite. Air, water, and mountains.

I love the subtle details in this piece, like the kid trying to look in the direction the older one is, or the fact that the older one is giving the drake shelter with its wing. Silver dragons are probably my favorite, and this one doesn't disappoint. Love it!

Then there are the Aluminum Dragons.

I like this fellow. He is reminiscent of a good version of the silver dragon serving as one my story's main antagonists.

For scale, what age group would the bronze (?) dragon next to the silver be?

After reading the Inner Sea Faiths book, where we have the descriptions of the dragon god, Apsu, this one is probably Apsu himself. It says that the god is a majestic thing to behold, taking the form of a silver dragon that dwarfs even great wyrm dragons...

If you take a look at the arts of the young bronze and the bronze, you will see that this one is closer to the older version. This one is probably an adult or older dragon. Look at the features of his body and compare.

I know the artist can't name it if it wasn't cannon (used and named as such), but to me, this one is Apsu!

That's true! I really missed the artwork of the ancient metallics... Paizo is in need of draconic lovers... But Inner Sea Faiths has a note stating that Dahak's holiday, The Realize, is near... Maybe a dragon centered adventure path? With a lot of BenWootten on it! I am a dummy!

:( (Sad)

That helps, but I was thinking more along the lines of Adult, Mature Adult, Old, etc.
