Dragons Fury by mattbradbury
This started as an exercise with a photo. Half of the background is a photo of a forest fire in Montana that I found on the internet, the left half I painted in myself. Although it didn't look right at the time because the photo was very pixelated I kept with it and worked over the photo as well until it all had the same feel and continuity. The dragon, the ship and the foreground flames all just seemed to grow into the scene. I really like the way it's come out with that photographic feel and i am pleased with myself that I found the patience to finish it. Hope you enjoy it.
