Rough Day by isdira Rough Day by isdira
Never a good sign when your shield starts melting...

I noticed how I didn't have one single dragon in my gallery and I thought it was about time to change that!
It's still a bit rough.. maybe I'll get back to it and paint in all the details and make it all nice and stuff... well maybe... but for now I'm alright with how this turned out:)

5-6 hours in Ps CS6, wacom

Comments are most welcome!:)

Do you mind if I use this piece as a reference and do one similar? I really enjoy the layout.

The art is great but the story in the title is the most attractive. Rough day meaning the knight will live and he is use to fighting dragons. The way he is position meaning he and his armor are prepared for the fire. It leaves us to question what kind of armor is it and more.there is a whole story here that we would love to hear or see. Dragons and knights never get old.

Thank you very much! I always try to include some sort of story in my works. Funny you should mention the title though because I actually came up with it way after I finished this and thought of it just as a funny/ironical title but as you pointed out it does actually add much to the story!

I write stories such as The Sorrowed King. I could write one for this picture.

You can read a sample of what I write on LULU.com check out The Sorrowed King you will like it. Its kind of like Lord of the Rings with more actions.

He will be remembered though as our dear friend Larry the brave knight who may not have been the brightest spark around asking the dragon if he would kindly light his cigarette....;)

Just a regular day for a dragonborn dragonhunter.
you get toasted a little.
Lose some hair.
But in the end, that is life.

For your first dragon (as your comment has said) you did an excellent job in my opinion. As well, good job getting the pose look on the knight. Many people mess up on that.

Its like the official trailer for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim; except more awesome. Unless the knight can finish it quickly, I think the armor is the next thing on the dragon's list of things to melt.
