Dragon Rider Boy

I may have posted the black and white version of this but I have this color version and wanted to put it up. Simple coloring but I think it works. This is a character I created for the Dragonriders of Pern fan club. "V'tor & Sparks", 8 1/2 x 11 print colored with Acrylic and watercolor colored pencil.


  1. As I remember, each dragonrider had a large dragon mentally bonded with him which he rode and cared for, as well as a number of mini-dragons. Because of perspective, I can't quite tell whether the golden dragon at the boy's right shoulder is the large riding dragon or a small mini dragon. If I recall, the golden dragons were the highest in rank.
    At first I thought this was Piemur, a youth who was marooned with his golden mini dragon on a tropical island..

  2. It's a firelizard (or mini dragon) and it's a bronze, not a gold. I had not found him a dragon yet so it is not in the picture.

  3. I like this one in color. In a certain story I read Small dragons a called Skytes(nothing to do with the picture).
