Here is what Chris Rahn had to say about this Majestic Creature.
This was a really exciting (and challenging) assignment. After mulling it over a bit I decided that I wanted to showcase the unusual wing anatomy of D&D’s gold dragons, reflecting the warm light of sunset. I took a lot of inspiration from wildlife photography and what it would be like to just be minding your own business on the shore of some mountain lake when this unbelievable creature passes by. Just catching a brief glimpse of it going about it’s business.
