These crazy guys compete for glory all day by attempting to capture a lock of golden hair from the dragon's forehead. Weeee! They're not very successful though. :laughing:

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.

I love this, so cool. And I like that they're not hunting the dragon, just its hair : )

I like how the dragon is giving that guy on the rock an evil smirk, haha.

If they think they can capture a dragon, just like that, they're wrong.
If they think they can capture a dragon and get away with it, they're even more wrong.
Especially an Eastern. :heart:

*squeeeeal* OMG!!! That's really funny! The dragon is like "What, you think you're going to have as much luck as these other schmucks on my back? Come on, give me your best shot." :threaten:

May I ask you where did you get the idea from? I mean, the idea of men trying to cut of his hair?

Sheridan-J Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
Just from my head. It was originally gonna be the men trying to capture the whole dragon, but I figured that would be like shooting a BB Gun at a Freight Train :lol:

That's true:) Well, I like the idea of getting his golden hair. I even thought that you had got the idea from ome Georgian fairy-tale:)

Ohh that's interesting! I'd like to know more about it. Maybe it could inspire me for the next lot of paintings :D (I'm kinda on a little break here)

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?:D
