Flight of the Paladin

A brave and stalwart paladin riding his steed into battle against a rampaging fire breathing dragon! The classics are always the most fun.

This recent project made for an excellent example of my process and I thought I would share some of that with you.

For a full, streaming evolution watch the painting unfold on video:

  1. Wow, incredible piece. Loved watching the process too.
    Nice choice of music ;)

  3. Epic painting. I feel almost sorry for the little knight with his wee green sword facing this behemoth of a dragon; he’s like a flying snack. I really like the background building designs and all the lights in the windows, too.

    1. Lance-Thanks! Always great to hear feedback. I like the idea that even a small knight can defeat such a powerful evil dragon!

  4. I love your work so much. Is there any way we can get a wallpaper size image of this?
