Copper dragon from D&D? I hear they are fond of riddles.

I really like the colouration on the scales, and the pose of the dragon.

wow... fantastic... copper dragon, right? Wings are kinda off from todd lockwood's version (which i can understand since they'd screw up the pose), but otherwise reminiscent of his style. Excellent work on the lighting ^_^

Apart from the rather quick loss of detail on the dragon's right rear leg, this one puts Dungeons and Dragons to SHAME.
