This one came about because I wanted to do a painted version of the one I did in color pencil and chalk and perhaps change it up a bit. Only when I went to do the lightning background it just wasn't working! So I left it alone for a while and then an idea came to me and I painted him in a cavern instead! Then another idea came, have a dragon looking at him from another area. My mom says I always has the look of "Well where is that blasted dragon anyways!" it's his pet you see and it's being devious by sneaking around behind him, he's going to turn around and get a fright when he sees a giant eyeball looking at him! Any who, I did this with acrylic paints, and it did take a lot of time and has many, many layers to it. It wasn't easy to do a cavern and to get the glint on the gems and metal and the right lighting on him and the dragon, I'll tell ya that!
