The Red Dragon (old)

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Stephen Watkins, Jr.

I added this piece to show how my style has developed over the years. This is theoretically the same scene as that depcited in 'Unfinished (The Red Dragon)'. However, this picture was drawn between March and April of 1997. It is also Mechanical Pencil on 8(1/2)*11 paper. It was originally titled 'The Quest of the Youth Concludes'. Artist's Challenge: Even this long ago, I had already started to try to hide my symbol somewhere in the picture. I was actually inspired to do so by another artist (whose name I no longer remember). But my style of hiding the sign was already looking to be very different from the artist that inspired me. Look for the rune once in this picture.
