Ancient Red Dragon Ragorath by luffie Ancient Red Dragon Ragorath by luffie
I know its kinda outdated, but I've just watched Eragon, and I must say that their dragons.... sucked. I am disappointed that they designed such a kiddy dragon for a fantasy movie, though I do understand the movie is for kids.. but come on, its a movie about dragons eating dragons yet Saphira looks just like something that comes out from a zoo. And why would a dragon let itself be enslaved by a human soul?! They signed a pact, but the it wasn't under threat or something, no dragons should be that stupid..--__--...

So here is my take on what a dragon should at least be in the world of dragons. I guarantee it will let no humans ride it, and it will burn Galbatorix' ass and eat puny dragons like Saphira for breakfast. CHOMP!

ZOOM FOR AWESOMENESS You may want to worship it... :bow:

Great job on this.
Too bad you didn't like the movie. I thought Sapphira was beautiful and Rachel Weisz a great pick for her.

Definitely how dragons should be!

Really like your take on dragons, art style is awesome.

You should take a look at my book-as-a-blog, it's a dragon story from a completely different angle than you've probably read before, I'm writing a new chapter each week, and I really want to feature some killer art along with each chapter.

If you like it, I would love to feature some of your work there as illustration.

.......speechless I a big fan of dragons since I could remember... I try to make my own but there too plain. I want to know how you did the fire effect and how you added the glow.

I'm a beginner in digital media. and I will like to use this as a reference.

the movie was horrible, worst i've seen in a long time. the books fleshed out the reason behind the partnership between dragons and mortals REALLY well and it was so much more in depth with it's own lore and history and just.. wow. what a rich book. the movie did it no justice. :)
luffie Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
I guess so, I don't think a book with a terrible story will be made into movies anyways
Jukogenas Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
While the books are ... captivating, I must say that they include some logical mistakes and many story errors, as well as other stuff.
A simple example would be how Roran, the author's favorite right after that witch named after his sister, slays 200 EXPERIENCED SOLDIERS just like that, if with some advantage.
I really shouldn't go into this right now...

I was shocked to see that they gave Saphira feathers, so yes, I agree that your Dragon is an improvement.
Solseithis Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2014
I remember watching Eragon years ago when I had heard it was a great movie... It sucked, real bad.

Your design is fucking amazing, just like every other piece of your work I've seen. 
Kyra2286 Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I love Eragon, but I must agree that the movie was crap. The books were far superior, and involved much dragon-induced carnage. Trust Hollywood to turn something epic into a stupid kid's movie.

That is is such a great idea - it really looks like beast born from fire. And it's hot. ^^

I'm with you, Eragon dragons sucked, i was sorely dissapointed lol yours is much better!
Keitsumah Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Notice: it was explained that "tamed" dragons weren't as fierce looking as the wild ones. That may be why.
jahusa1234 Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Very nice use of warm-cold contrast, amazing detail too! I really like this one! 
D-Valkyrie Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2013
More like this please.

Just the way the head is drawn from the neck up alone, flames ready, demands you to respect this dragon already.

Have my fav C:

PS: Agree on your Eragon comments.. to be frank i didn't even like the main actor ><

I don't know how you do it, but that is absolutely incredible. :faint:
Enferlain Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2013
That is indeed a dragon! Great work and love your opinion. 
I got nausea from watching Eragon. The whole concept is great, sounds awesome, but it's just so badly executed... And I know a lot of people like the books and worship them, but I must say the same about them too.
Lukhanus Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2013  Hobbyist Filmographer
I agree with everything you said! With the dragon (soul) orbs, who needs the dragons?
Momentum567 Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I totally agree with you!! When I saw the movie, i was really disappointed when i saw what Saphira looks like! This is an amazing dragon, very well done!

This is Saphira?!
But she is blue-colored!

Great job :) 
I'm with you on the movie, but when you read the books it makes much more sense

I love the picture, great piece of work but I have to ask, did you read the books at all or did you just watch the movie?
luffie Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I watched the movie only, I know people say the book is different, but still the movie is bad.....
KitsuneAkmua Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2013
Ah, yea the movie was pretty bad. But I was more concerned about your comment about the dragons not allowing themselves to be ridden.  Now that I know you haven't read the books I'm more understanding of your views.  Without prompting, I would agree that dragons wouldn't allow a rider without certain circumstances. However, they were sorta forced into the whole pact thing.  it was that or extinction

I love dragons. :happybounce:
