Then the wheels started turning...I could paint this dragon to look like the one on the Holmes Blue Basic Box set cover!
I had to hone my painting skills first...bought a bunch of smaller minis & studied the interwebs for tips & "how to" videos on Youtube.
So here's my small tribute to David C. Sutherland III...a very overlooked & under appreciated OLD SCHOOL D&D artist...who passed too young & too soon.
I went with the blue wings from the Basic Box...such an iconic work!
And...I almost forgot...must be old age...I painted a Unicorn mini for my youngest niece, knowing that I would see her for the Easter holiday celebration! She liked it very much!
