Eclipse by Adam Scythe

Yikes!  Time got away from me last week and I missed my post, but that just means you’ll get two posts this week, and tons of awesome dragon art!  Up first, in honor of the spectacle much of North America had a chance to see last week, this is Eclipse by professional watercolor artist Adam…

AtoZ 2017: W is for Willow

W is for Willow As I inch toward the finish line of my 2017 AtoZ Challenge series, Dragons in Our Fandoms, this time let’s look at a dragon from the modern classic fantasy movie Willow.
