A Dragon Taught me Fire by ChasingArtwork A Dragon Taught me Fire by ChasingArtwork
Leaving it up to you cats to explain what's going on here, I only have a vague idea. The title "A Dragon Taught me Fire" came out of nowhere one day(thanks muse), and since then I've had this violent, explosive clash of epicness piece on my mind.

printing this first thing tomorrow morning, just in time for the Vancouver Fan expo :)

I don't think I've ever come close to pushing Illustrator this far- the amount of vector chaos going on is a little overwhelming... and some of you will be happy to know, that during this piece, a lot of snaps were taken, and I will be compiling a step-by-step Tutorial on my full process :) I'll post details closer to release.

"Leaving it up to you cats to explain what's going on here," even after a mere 20 years after the red dragon was born, it grew into  a massive beast, devastating the land, with no force on earth to stop it, so the gods sent the elemental water gaurdian to stop it!

Yet another master piece. You really know your stuff, it's amazing how the colors play with each other, devouring each other and the strong contrast they form. It leaves much room for interpretation. However there is a minor thing I noticed (and don't know if it happened intentionally), it's that the ice woman doesn't really face the dragon, she looks in a different direction, so it seems.

I think of the story of an angle of ice, who has an ice cold heart . So she travels and searches for the legendary fire dragon. It is know for it full filling dreams and wishes. Finally having arrived at the destination, she asks the dragon to give an end to her icy heart, but the dragon doesn't give wishes easily to anyone. It says that only the ones that are worthy shall receive it. To test if the angel is worthy, the dragon challenges her to a fight. They clash into another and... Awesome artwork :D

Its a bit of a stretch but this piece could be applied to Game of Thrones' Daenarys. But it's interpretation is ambiguous so that makes it fun.

Its an amazing piece. You can see the fire in the eyes of the dragon and I love the clash of colours between fire and ice. My interpretation is that she has come to learn the ways of dragonfire and this is their misunderstood first meeting, where the dragon just sort of starts attacking. I love the dragon by the way. Unconventional, yet completely inspiring.

I loooove everything about this! The ambiguity is genius btw, the title caught my attention right away and my mind was stimulated right from the thumbnail! I haven't conceived a firm idea yet about what I'm looking at, but it feels epic :D
right now I'm thinking about a very complicated friendship/alliance. Obviously a battle is taking place in the image but it the title gives me the notion these entities once were or will be united but only by weak and temporary common grounds.
Truly looks incredible :) great work
