It's nap time for this fiery little hatchling!
Being a fantasy magazine, we have a certain soft spot for dragons – and who doesn't? But this little fellow by Krzysztof Krygier may just be one of the cutest we've ever seen!
Titled simply as Dragon, this piece depicts a newly hatched baby taking a nap. And it's adorable- just look at those little legs! We're guessing that Krzysztof used lizard reference sources to get the anatomy right, which was a very wise choice.
There are plenty of creative touches like the vibrant skin colouring and early spike formations that make this a highly original piece. The texturing here is excellent too, which makes the whole image feel natural.
