The first time I saw this dragon type was on a Todd Lockwood cover and I fell right in love with it... So I couldn't resist drawing it. If you're looking for an inspiration source for dragons I suggest you pay him a visit ( He's the ultimate dragon master.

Next week, I'll send the green.

Good job man! Very unique design.

It looks similar to a bronze dragon from the DnD universe, but certainly there's some differentiating characteristics. Purple dragon? ... Chromatic perhaps? -- Is it chromatic?! Omg those things are a paaaiin! AHMAhGOSH A PAAAAIN IN THE ARSE.

You did a fantastic job drawing / coloring / making this and I absolutely positively applaud you. :)
Hi there,
Yes I'm impressed.
Would you please email me at (New website up and coming)
I'd like to print and sell one or two of your pictures, but I need you to email that that;s okay.
You get a couple of things from this:
1. A mention in my website - being built right now
2. some money
The way I work is on commission:
Picture (Your bit) Cost 0
Printing (my bit)  Cost 3
Rent/Rates (me) Cost 1
Sale            (me) Sale 10
Profit           (us)         6
You 66% = 4
Me 33%  = 2
Obviously, sometimes I will print on A3, in which case the costs and profit go up a little to about 6 and 3 profit to you and me.
Normal commissions are between 40 and 50% But, you do all the hard work.
If you're interested, please email me with some A4 samples, I will print them on A4 photo paper, and put them in my gallery
Then I'll add you and them to the website.
If you're interested, then we can agree a way of payment, cheque, paypal, bank transfer, ( I won't say cash because that's not allowed).
Also, If you agree, the I'll need a small photo of you and a paragraph about you for the website, and a little plaque I will print and put next to your photos/prints in the gallery
Anyway, Well done, you. I seriously am impressed with your work
All the best

You should probably check out the Dragons from D&D. This would be a Bronze Dragon---no purples. Some of the others you have in your gallery (of this similar style) are also dead ringers for the dragons from D&D, but 'mislabeled.'

If you love Todd's work, definitely check it out!

You're not correct. There is a Purple Dragon in FR.

Sort of reminds me of an Eragon book cover
