There’s just something about dragons, in all their scaly, writhing, whip-tailed, bat-winged glory, that gives artists a subject they can really, if you’ll excuse the expression, sink their teeth into.
Breath of Embers: Art of Dragons is a new show at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, California that revels in dragons in a multitude of interpretations by illustrators, fantasy artists and visual development artists. Dragons big and small, fearsome and fanciful, will fill the walls from now through October 31, 2011.
The feature page on the exhibit gives a list of the participating artists with links to their websites or blogs, and the “view pieces” page can be sorted by first or last name, and there is also a choice for “See All” on a single page.
When viewing individual pieces, it’s worth noting that the gallery now has a feature for viewing close-up crops for the images, allowing you to see the details and visual texture that give so many of these works their extra appeal (e.g. images above, bottom two).

Superb Artwork, well i visited http://www.icannabian.webuda.com there also i saw awesome wallpapers & graphics. Anyway Great Wrok!
Eric Velhagen’s Fantasy Feast has got to be the most refreshing, original, amazing, creative, imaginative, welcomed, Dragon paintings I have seen since the first time I ever saw a dragon image some 40 odd years ago. When I saw Eric’s painting for the first time it blew my socks off and made me want to run out to the deep blew seas with my camera! Wow! What a really cool concept… A dragon fetching a mermaid like an eagle going after fish. How cool is that! Anyway… I was in a dragons depression, to many dragon images that just didn’t spark my imagination. Now I am cured and can go about my life with a new skip in my step. Thanks Eric! [as always super big Kudos to Charlie Parker for Lines and Colors ~ you are one Baddddddd Man Charlie.]
