A Civil Conversation by KaiCarpenter A Civil Conversation by KaiCarpenter
This is a thought for a story I'm working on with my brothers - It's still in the very early stages, but I'm REALLY excited about where it's headed. I wanted to take a stab at an encounter with a dragon, so there you have it - treasure n' all.

gouache, obviously haha

Wow. There's something about this that really stands out to me.
It's like you could almost feel the heat of the sun or see the dragon's body move as it breathes.
The dragon's design is really cool too! The way it's piled up in front of its treasure hoard.

That's good, I don't need to read your comment to see some history behind this paint. And I think that's how an illustration should be.

So...I didn't notice if anyone else called this out, but the dragon's face, and the color scheme are very reminiscent of Missmonster (Melita Curphy) designs.
Your painting looks really nice...but, I couldn't help mentioning the similarity.

Samurai asks" Mr.dragon, will you please stop eating my people?"

Dragon replies "meh....I'll think about it...."

The dragon looks pretty chill. Guess it has a pretty easy life, with as many treasure-greedy adventurers as it can eat.

That dragon is probably saying something like: "Ya know, I could be eating you right now, but since I'm so goddamn fat, I'm just gonna listen to you make words for awhile."

Man, this is awesome, the concept as well as the technique.
And it reminds me: Do you know a movie called "Dragonheart"? Itīs much the same, one of my fav movies ever. Pretty old, 1996. I liked esspecially that the dragon there was portrayed as a civilized creature (more than the humans) and knew how to articulate his thoughts and acted with the outmost dignity. Then again, it doesn't take much to be more honorable than humans.

I fully agree.
I noticed just now that the dragon is also gesturing to the Samurai as if saying:"Oh, it's you again. Smart to put your sword away." Is that intended or just my imagination?
