The scene made me LOL. Also made me think of Naomi Novik's novels, which I love. I don't think her dragons are made quite like this one, but the image of trying to ride one probably isn't much different. I would LOVE to see you depict her dragons, come to think of it... If you haven't read the Temeraire series, check it out. The dragons are fantastic.
It's funny you've said that. Because two days ago I was looking for one book and found collection of Georgian fairytails. I loved that book in childhood so I decided to take one more look at it. I just read a few stories and they've already inspired me SOOOO MUCH! I have at least dozen of ideas already, just don't know where to find the time to draw them all P.S. I have an idea. I could translate a few stories for you, and you could get some inspiration from them. how's that?
