Note: I am always looking for other dragon art and dragon artists, and will include anything remotely relevant. Send an email to
Tarnished Images: Ruth Thompson. Thompson's art is always captivating, but she is particular fan of dragons. She also does some rather fetching faeries and mermaids. Her 2003 Dragons Calendar is unfortunately sold-out (and out of date), but you can still get Morning Stretch as a temporary tattoo.
Ciruelo Fantasy Art. The mononymic Argentinian Ciruelo was the author/illustrator of the 1992 book The Book of the Dragon which, as he points out, is all over the web now, mostly without attribution. His work is tip-top fantasy, with a lot of dragon.
Keith Parkinson. Exceptional high-polished fantasy art. Parkinson is a regular on Dragon Magazine and on fantasy covers.
Amazon. Touch of Magic : The Douglas Shuler Sketchbook by Douglas Shuler.
Shadowscapes / Stephanie Pui-Mun Law. Ms. Law has a very distinctive style, to my eye very attractive. She has only a few dragons, but her angels are numerous.
Clyde Caldwell. Great fantasy art. His dragons and maidens reminded me of my youth&emdash;he illustrated a lot of the earlier Dragon Magazines.
Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell. Vallejo, at least, needs no introduction. They seem to have merged web opperations.
Ursula Vernon / www.metalandmagic.com. I am very taken with Ms. Vernon's dragons, angels and particularly griffns, generally accompanied with an amusing descriptive paragraph. Her garbage dragon is amusing. Her essay "Because It's Fantasy And I Say So" is also great.
Christopher Appel, marvelous fantasy art, for magazines, card games and such.
Cara Mitten has some very interesting dragon and griffin art, unfortunately available only through lists of filenames. Some pictures can be found on Dracoslair.net, including dragon and griffin embelishments on her car.
Dika Wolfe on "Dragon Trainer" and a number of other interesting fantasy pieces.
Theresa Brandon. Talented children's book author. One dragon, reading with a girl.
"People always love this painting. They come up to it and say, "Oh, my goodness, what a lovely dragon! What a cute little girl!"
Don Maitz. Highly-accomplished fantasy art, divided into "dragons," "damsels" "wizard work," etc.
Lee Moyer. Illustrator and web designer. I recognized a lot of his wonderful Call of Cthulhu art.
The Art of Michael Whelan. Classic fantasy art.
Lawrence A Williams. Highly-polished and attractive angels and dragons.
Amy Brown Fantasy Art. Faeries are the main event here, but there are a few faerie dragons and "dragon divas" done in her distinctive style.
Dale D Ziemianski. Well-executed, sometimes funny, sometimes cheesy fantasy art.
The Art of William Hammock. Dragon series includes many "unusual" dragonsghost dragons, snowflake dragons, etc.
John E. Kaufman. Kaufman has some of the more unusual dragon art, including the "Beer Dragon" (a Saint Bernard take-off) and a luminescent dragon's egg.
Matt Stawicki. Accomplished and much-published fantasy artist, including a gallery of Dragonlance images.
Stan Wisniewski's Painting Gallery. Wiesniewski's fantasy art doesn't look like everyone else's fantasy art. His dragons are an appealing mix of Asian and European features. His "garden cherubs" aren't my cup of tea.
Roberto Campus. Fantasy art in various styles. His tutorials section is rewarding.
NeonDragonArt.com, the Art of Jessica Peffer. I have to confess, I don't like anime, and I hate "anthropomorphic art." But Peffer's work is so very good, and is clearly getting better and better.
Angel Illustrations - The Art of K. P. Lines. Lines has a few dragons—notably a series with a woman and her dragon "lover"—and many enchanting angels.

Alan F. Beck. Three light dragon pictures in the "Fantasy" section.
Joe Calcins fantasy art.
Ronald Chironna, fantasy and science fiction illustrations.
"I try to go back to the beginning, to the origins of most of the folklore and the stories that were told. I find that over the years and centuries the stories get watered down and homogenized to the point where they have lost the sense of what made them so provocative in the first place. Faeries are not cuddly, mermaids are not friendly, and angels, from any culture, are formidable."
The Enchanted Art Collection of Jessica Galbreth-Painter "painter of myth, magic and enchantment." Although not the center of the oevre she does interesting dragons.
Rob Katkowski. Striking fantasy art.
Charles Keegan . Classic fantasy artist.

ASFA (The Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists)
