...there is no shortage of dragons in this world it appears...wonderfully old-fashioned rendering., there is an illustrator called Kay Neilsen whose work this reminds me of - on google, I just checked.
I know Neilson's work well. There are quite a few interesting Scandinavian illustrators from the turn of the century and thereabouts. You might want to google Theodor Kittelsen as well. I really like the masters from the golden age of illustration. I’ve recently gotten two fantastic books; 'The Arthur Rackham Treasury' for Christmas and earlier 'Dulac's Fairy Tale Illustrations' as a birthday gift. There is something from that period that is both subtle and magical - not like all the overblown colors and bloody swinging swords of today.I drew this back in the ‘80s. There weren’t quite as many dragons around back then. Now you can’t turn a corner without running into one. Er, um, to be honest, I’m doing a piece just now (old style) with both a dragon AND a castle in the background . . . corny I know, but I just love that stuff.
Congratulations on the two excellent illustrator books for Xmas, wondering if you like the Froud brothers & if so if you have seen the 80's film "Legend" (Tom Cruise's second film) , which appeared to have Henson workshop characters based on their work.
I love the style of that period, also. You've done the masters well!
wow... wonderful drawing...with such delicate details. love your 'resolve'!m
like the feel of this and the feel of texture to the floor / sides and roof
