No particular experiment here, just an assessment of what I can cook up with std oils handling and imagination only.
I added also a couple of elaborated version, the first with half transparent black layer with overlay blend mode and the second with some colour fills ....

.... o semplicemente i templi di Segesta o Selinunte, piana di Agrigento, Sicilia, Italia ...:p Grazie Javier!!!

I should make more accurate one, dear Amanda, but apart from the time, I'm having problems with the pen. Sooner or later I'll have to look for a new tablet ... Thank You!

Excellent Cesare!!!!!!!!!!!

That dragon looks so real, I'd hate to be walking out of that little door and look up to see it! Great painting!

Dear Caesar these are fantastic, I love them all.

Fantastic Cesare, all are great:)

I like them all too Caesar, though I can't help wondering what the dragon has against the Roman architecture. Everyone's a critic I guess!

I love the light colors you chose. Thats always my biggest struggle when painting is picking the right colors.

Very nice - what building is that dragon after? I am still using a mouse. I need to buy a tablet and pen.

Good job Caesar! I'm drawn to #2. I think the flame looks the most menacing on it.

04-17-2010, 04:53 PM
Gorgeous Master Caesar...cannot say what i think...it's kind of political... love it..you are very good with oils ... that is all i will say today... :)

Dear Caesar,
There seems to angry dragonry afoot in the old Roman temple tonight
and what hellion, pray tell might have angered the God's, thus prompting
them to call up this mythical fire breathing serpent to smite certain
agitators within? The architectural detail and magnificent dragon is
quite impressive and I, for one, would not want this disagreeable winged
reptile being upset with me. :eek: Very well painted! :)

What an interesting experiment, Caesar....gotta love those fire-breathing dragons or at least have a lot of respect for them! Nice job!!!

I am shivering with fright hiding in the corner of that building. Briliant ... I love it .Best wishes Jo x

Hi Caesar, wow what a dramatic and threatening scene. The viewing angle works really well. Wonderful composition. Fantastic painting mate. I second Amandas post. More please.

Dear friends, I apologize for answeing late (I've been away), thus not to each of You personally. I really thank You for Your warm and encouraging appreciation and I look forward to please again in the forthcoming future the fantasy painting fans.
I didn't use the most usual nordic (or chinese) architectures and atmosphers here as more usual for this genre, but I think that the Greek - Roman scenario may fit almost as well, since characters such as Laocoon, Perseus or Hercules, just to cite some known guys, had to face creatures not much different from this pseudo-reptilian one ...

04-19-2010, 08:40 AM
Coooolll!!! Love it dear Caesar. Well done mate.

04-19-2010, 11:11 AM
Definitely not a cute and cuddly sort of dragon at all......love it Caesar! Great fun!

:):):):):) Very dynamic and draws me into the story like a tractor beam. Awesome.

04-19-2010, 11:43 AM
Great works Caesar and I wonder what made him angry:D

04-19-2010, 11:53 AM
Awesome fantasy image Caesar. I think I like the richer colour of the second version best, but thats just my preference. :):)

04-19-2010, 08:41 PM
Thank You, dear Ivan. No barbecue ignition problem with such a pet!:D

Right Foxy! I think it doesn't look like appreciating caresses ...:D thank You!

Dear D Akey, I think it's also quite easy to induce Your fertile mind to immediately create an enthralling story with just few visual hints. Thank You, dear friend!

Dear Justjean, perhaps this place was in Calabria, so its last offered victim was dressed with too hot and spicy chili pepper for his suffering stomach and esophagitis.:D

The three images are not that different, but You're right on Your perception dear Juz. In the last one I just experimented a way to emphasize the light and heat emission of the flame ... Thank You!
