Here there be Dragons

Surprisingly, in the few hundred paintings I have done for Dungeons and Dragons, I have painted many dungeons, but very few dragons.  So, when I was asked to paint a couple new Dragons for the release of the Draconomicon 4th Edition, I couldn’t help but be a little excited about that.  Below is a new dragon to the mix, a cobalt dragon.  I thought it would be neat to portray the dragon in its natural setting looking for prey.  A dragon can’t always have a tasty damsel or gristly knight to feast on, sometimes it just has to get out there and chase down an elk.  It helps to keep the love handles in check too.
