The Hatchling by chrisdown
I like some of the pictures to have a connection or a bit of a story to connect them. In this case, the towers in the background are connected to the towers in the picture Let Sleeping Dragons Lie. In that case, the dragon is part of the protection of the towers. The dragons that do this are raised by hand to be as tame as it is possible to be with a dragon. The eggs for this are raided from dragon nests. Which will lead to be another picture at some point in the future.
The reference for this Painting was from a photo I took of the model Heidi who can be found at http://www.myspace.com/heidi_trinity
