The dragon doc (The art of Justin Gerard)
My last job and probably one of the longest I've been waiting since I started painting for various reasons.

The first is that it is based on an illustration done one of my favorite artists Justin Gerard, and the second because its sculpted by one of my favorite sculptors and (in my opinion) one of the best miniature sculptors from europe, Valentin zak.

I enjoyed a lot this work and at the end have a lot of me. I made some small changes, more darker, a bit of colour in the floor, the nest with more branches...I hope you like for me its one of the most especial projects I done and its already one of my favs.

Sculptor: Valentin Zak
Painter: Iván Hortal
Size: dwarf 45mm

This is not a commercial piece.
Comission work. Not for sale.

I hope you like it.
