Enter the Dragon

Starting tomorrow, Muddy Colors will be celebrating DRAGONS!

An excerpt from Historiae Naturalis de Quadrupedibus Libri, by Joannes Jonstonus (1657)

For the next two weeks, every post will center around our most beloved of fantasy creatures. That's right, an entire fortnight of nothing but dragons! We will be sharing several new dragon paintings, explore dragon anatomy, talk about some of our favorite dragons throughout the years, show how we build dragon maquettes, delve into the science of plausible dragons, and... well, you get the idea.

We also got several special guests lined up, so keep a close eye on the blog... it should be a blast!

    Btw doing such series is a great idea! You should make one on Tolkien based art before they launch the movie. After all he created fantasy as we know it today

    1. Yeah, things got crazy around the studio, and I never got around to it. I have a few paintovers in progress, but wonder if they aren't completely moot by now.
      I think i'll post them soon anyways.
      Sorry about that!
