New Big Dragon Illustration Coming

See this right here? This is a happy dragon. This is a smug and satisfied dragon who is most mug and satisfied at some big big news. What is this mysterious big news? Well it just so happens to be one of the biggest stories ever! In the history of this tiny little blog.

Okay. Maybe the news isn’t that big in the grand scheme of things, but give me a break here people.

Okay. Moving on. Not too long ago my artist and I started work on another illustration for the book. With some time needed to get all the required elements to complete the cover of our fantasy/action epic, we’ve put that on the sidelines and moved on to some other illustrations that will decorate the manuscript. We aimed to make it similar to the Dark Tower series, having one illustration every few chapters. So far we have completed three that show off our massive red leading lizard of fire and death.

We’re pretty happy with all of them so far. More recently, we began work on another illustration that would show off one of the more tense sequences in Chapter 19. This was the picture’s humble beginnings.

Last night we made massive progress on the picture. It is easily one of the most quickly progressing illustrations of them all, with great attention to detail, nice moody lighting, and a nice pants fudging subject matter for all to enjoy. Now, I won’t go showing off all of it just yet since there is still some work to be done, but I do hope this little snippet of the picture will be enough to satisfy your curiosity.

Barring any major setbacks, this picture should get wrapped within the next seven days. Hope all of you are just as excited as we are. The world is going to get one more Big Dragon, and that’s something we could all use a little more of.
