Hydrangea by Risachantag Hydrangea by Risachantag

Hydrangea - One of the oddest examples from the genus, Dracomagnoliophyta. It goes without saying that hydration, exposure to sunlight and a regular supply of insects is key to the health of this species.

Science & Dragons set:
Maple Dragon
Leviathan
Bunsen Burner Dragons



---

This commission for the Continuum convention was actually the piece that sparked my dragon series. The theme was “Stranger than Fiction” and I sure enjoyed designing and painting it! My maple dragon was a thumbnail idea for the same concept that wasn’t chosen.

Plug time! If you’re into scifi/fantasy and in Melbourne over June 10-13, you should check out Continuum 12. =)

…and one more plug, speaking of conventions! I’ll be at Swancon in Perth this upcoming Easter weekend! Mostly just to enjoy the con, but I’ll have a few new pieces in the art show. April 2-3rd, I’ll be running my artist alley table at Oz Comic-con Perth. You can find me at stand 11, “7th Heaven”. Oh hey, that rhymes~ <3

Incredibly cool, and I'm wondering if the little fish are some sort of symbiotic species to the bigger ones . .

With this and a snapdragon, I would have the sickest garden ever!
Also, what are those little fishy things in the bottle?

It's rare to see hydroponic and pyrophoric caloric in the same metabolic.

This is absolutely beyond clever. If we could actually grow dragons from plants like this, it would be pretty awesome (though it should be reserved only for true dragon enthusiasts). Nicely done. ;D

Fantasy on a refined and finest level
It's so creative and visually engaging. 

Plus.... feeling a bit devious, I suspect that would fetch a high price on the black magic market. *smirks*

Very clever idea and design as well as the play on words between hydrangea and hydra.
