We need a picture of a large, imposing dragon behind a angry looking young man. The young man is named Horath. The Dragon should cast a shadow over Horath, and Horath from the bottom should be faded. (see ref pic). The dragon also should be faded from the bottom to look as if it is emerging from behind Horath and taking form on the spot.
Horath is 18 years old, a husky-built young man with a great physical
carriage, a squarish jaw, and an innate nobility. His face shows
intelligence, often impatience, and because he’s known from birth he
would one day succeed his father to become the Thirteenth Supreme. He should have a natural air of leadership.
He is dressed simply in natural materials woven on looms. He is not
dressed as a warrior because those who live in the valley of the Blue
Mist believe they have no enemies. Think of simple, farmer's/peasant clothing from a fantasy era.
The dragon is as fierce looking as the mind can imagine, breathing
fire. It has a long lizard-like tail with a round cudgel at the end
that it swings to aid destruction. The teeth are incurved, as are the
claws. The scales are overlaid one over the other like armor and are
a blended color of greens, shades of black, russet, and a few flashes
of crimson and bright gold. The eyes are large, slanted and golden.
This is a true fire breathing dragon. It can be kept under control
only by Horath’s will not to lose himself to rage. The dragon
represents mindless rage.
We are looking for a drawing that shows something of the relationship of Horath and the dragon that threatens to engulf him. But it should not make a viewer think the dragon is about to eat him. It is a different kind of possession. It is more in the nature of a battle of wills.
The cover should be similar in design to the reference image, but not exact. It needs to be more defined and complete. This is an illustration piece, and should be fully illustrated.
