This piece was a paid commission of epic proportions. An aspiring author enjoyed my artwork, especially the Raising Dragons Graphic Novel, and wanted me to illustrate a scene from her third novel in the series. This climactic battle has Aleron and Maria teaming up against Lucius in his multi-head dragon form.
Both Aleron and Maria, our winged heroes, are fighting against the darkness using their glowing swords of light. It's an intense battle set on a mountainside. Lucius has black and red scales, two horns on each head, and a tail that splits into seven whip-like tips. Who is going to win this conflict, light or darkness?
