Dragon Art - Title: "Carrot Run"

Dragons, dragons and more dragons! Here's a piece I did recently. Unfortunately I didn't do it in time for our Dragon Sketches book.

If you'd like to see more dragon illustrations please visit our Dragons section of our portfolio.

Title: CARROT RUN by Bobby Chiu
Software: Photoshop
Description: "Every year, a young member of the Fuz'hy Lindt Tribe who has come of age must prove his worth by donning the blessed regalia of the sacred carrot and leading the Tribe on the Great Hunt. Only the fastest and bravest of warriors will ensure a successful Carrot Run, providing food for the Tribe through the winter."

Here's a fun animated gif I put together to show a bit of work in progress.
