I’ve always been a sucker for dragons… but I’m very critical when it comes to illustrations of those lovely creatures !
There are only a few artists around that can capture the lean, mean, fighting machine look that I like ! The dragon set that’s currently presented by McFarlance Toys are very stunning and come close to a perfect match in my mind.
But in illustration only, there is only one reference for my and that’s John Howe ! He was one of the lead artists that developed the complete look and feel of the Lord of the Rings trilogy by Peter Jackson. This guy has magical hands… because the way he has drawn the dragons for the NazgÃ»l is sheer perfection !!
His work is available for browsing at his own website here, have fun.
