Watchful eye by Loopydave Watchful eye by Loopydave
Illustration for the upcoming "Dragon Song" book from SQP. Did three illustrations, but this was my favorite.
You may recognize the baby dragon - [link] though he's not on fire in this version :D

Pencil sketch on paper, painted in photoshop. A bit under 2 weeks. Click on for larger size.

Beer before Liquor; will get you sicker  Cheers! She may be alright if mammadragon is in a good mood. She put her sword aside, after all, and she is already in a correct position to very humbly explain...

You are most welcome. I really meant it. My dream is to create digital art full time. I'm not sure how I'll get there, so for now, I'll keep the day job and keep practicing haha. Cheers. :beer:

Tiny dragon is über-cute as always ^^
His mommy don't look too nice, though o.o She looks like she wants herself some humie-meat o.o
I love the way you made the girl's hands look. So real and with all the wrinkles where they should be :heart:
