The Boy And His Dragon by AndyFairhurst The Boy And His Dragon by AndyFairhurst
It's been a couple of years since I last did a painting of this pair. Here they are trying to catch fish. This was when his dragon was a lot younger...they do grow up fast, do dragons.


I will probably develop these into a children's picture book soon so expect a few more with these two and their adventures.

Others in this series:
Fishing On The Drinking Dragon fav.me/d19633q
Splishing With The Splashing Dragon fav.me/d27c3vw
Sausage For The Sitting Dragon fav.me/d1risvh
Lazing By The Sleeping Dragon fav.me/d2cpv7r

Painted in PS CS4

My painting was was inspired by a fantastic photograph taken by my younger brother

*Wow. Just got to work and checked DA and found out this is a DD. Thank you Very much Ersen for suggesting it and alicexz for featuring it :D And thanks to everyone for the kind words in the comments below :)

** Oh and I have just realised this is the second DD that this boy and his dragon have received! They got one back in 2008 with 'Fishing On The Drinking Dragon' :D

***I have had quite a few How To Train Your Dragon quotes and while that is a complimentary comparison this is in no way inspired by that film, as I had developed the idea behind these two way before that film came out ( and I had no idea about the books ) Same also applies to Eragon comparisons! Not inspired by that either.

**** Oh and it has been selected to be in Expose 11 by Ballistic Publishing :D

The Boy And His Dragon by ~wildlifehoodoo. Love the somber greys and the beautiful character designs of this well-composed illustration. ( Suggested by ersen-t and Featured by alicexz )
