Dragon's Reign by JonHodgson Dragon's Reign by JonHodgson
(C) 2008 Jon Hodgson, made in the UK under UK copyright law

A cover to the forthcoming novel of the same name by David F Berens. I had a blast with this!

I realise that full view is so wide it breaks the DA frame. I think its worth it, since the whole thing is so wide, and I'd like you to be able to see it.

Photoshop, Painter

I want to cuddle one of them. I can't decide which one. Oh well, lovely work! I was almost going to miss the shaded city there in the mountains! A very beautiful atmosphere...

I can't stop looking at the dragon's neck. The texture is goregeous, and I really love the design of the face armor.

This is great, but my fave part is the way you painted the BG and the rocks. Really great textures and atmospheric effect in there. I'd love to see how you did it. :D

Thanks so much, Jon! I see. Great use of textures. I always add them late in the painting process. I should try your method and add them sooner and integrate them with the brush strokes. Really appreciate the walkthru!

Out of curiousity, Jon, what's significant about UK copyright law? I mean, how does it differ?

In short, we in the Uk don't have an orphan works bill looming. But of course that's far too complex an issue for discussion in my DA comments!

Hmm! Dunno if that's good, or bad! Ellen Million, whom I trust a great deal, has dissected the Orphan Works bills, and seems to think they might actually be on the side of GOOD. I sure hope she's right. But I clearly have my reservations...

Your palette is so pleasing. It looks like a real painting, not virtual.
