Dragon


I'm extra busy today so for the first time I'm posting an old picture on the Micks blog. This is a dragon sketch I did a couple of months ago. It was probably prompted by a re-watching of Dragonslayer. A great 80's fantasy movie with the best on-screen dragon of all time, who also had the best dragon name of all time, Vermithrax Pejorative.

Ah, Vermithrax Pejorative. Loved Dragonslayer so much as a kid, had this really cool marvel comics adaptation of it too.... memories.
Lovely line on this, kinda moebius-ey in places.

really nice bompso. you should make a sculpture of it and stick it on a pillar in your driveway!

jacintha said...

right after you finish the bust for our house...it is a lovely drawing though...can we have a dragon sculpture instead? I'll pay you in mocha cake.

Stephen Thompson said...

How about Mooney's head on a dragon's body? Sexy!

Will Sliney said...

Nice stuff Stephen

Declan Shalvey said...

Who could say no to that?

Nice drawing. I like how you blocked in your shadowy areas.

Never been a fan of dragons i must say.

Stephen Thompson said...

What if it was a gritty, street level Dragon who lived in a morally ambiguous world where the line between what's right and wrong was constantly being redrawn? You'd draw the hell out of that.

Declan Shalvey said...

I know you jest Thompson, but you're right; I really, really would.

Moondog said...

No dragon statue! Just pyre Moon-Head!

Kev said...

Really like this sketch, Mooney. Head reminded me of the Skeksis' from The Dark Crystal (which I'd love to see one of yas or all of yas for that matter, take on!)

Declan Shalvey said...

Wrong 'Stephen' there lads. Try again.

Judy said...

I <3 Dragons, the detail is great on his face. Reminds me of the Flight of Dragons :)

Bob Byrne said...

never saw the film! I think I was in a coma for about 2 years in 80's.

thecomiccast said...

Our apologies! What a faux pas! THOMPSON - your sketch is aces!

You have no idea just how often we confuse Thompson & Mooney on a regular basis.

Judy said...

@Bob Byrne - the book that you can get is fab too, the drawings of dragons are so wonderful to look at
