Artist Draws Dragons To Destroy The Stereotypes About Them

The portrayal of Dragons has generally been a negative one.  With the exception of films like How to Train Your Dragon or Puff the Magic Dragon, when we see a dragon on film or in a book, we get images of fire breathing monsters who are capable of death and destruction.   But there’s an artist out there who wants to put all of those stereotypes to bed.   Brian Kesinger has been drawing the lighter side of dragons and it’s worth taking a look.  Here’s what Brian had to say:

As a kid of the 80’s, dragons have always inspired me. Whether it was through movies, video games or dungeons, and dragons, these mythical beasts had an influence on my imagination. With this series of drawings, I wanted to show a different side of the animal.

Often dragons are depicted as villainous, treasure hoarding monsters but I wanted to break past the stereotypes and delve into the different personalities of each character. As far as the styling of the drawings themselves, I wanted to go for an old fashioned look of classic illustration, maybe even having a feel that they were sketched from life in some explorer’s journal.

Check out Brian’s dragons below:
