Dragon Rider Eragon by seifer-sama Dragon Rider Eragon by seifer-sama
Ha ha! Well I figured that since my homework is generally art I might post some of the things I am working on. The assignment was to pick a book and illustrate a cover and twelve chapter pictures. Well as many may have guessed my book is Eragon! And this is the cover I designed for it.

*laughs* This was drawn by hand, scanned and then colored in Corel Painter 8. I have never used this program before... so this was a whole new experience for me. (That and I am NOT a painter... As I am sure anyone who has any experience with painting will see). This picture has taken me about eight hours to complete... mainly because the first three hours were focused on messing up (learning the program).

Well I hope you all like it. :)

Hi! I found this drawing and it is absolutely amazing! Do you have any issues with me using it as a profile picture? If anyone asks me, I will be sure to inform them where it comes from!

Not at all thanks for asking. So long as I have credit for my work, I don't mind.

I really like your artwork, just thought I'd make a quick comment that Eragon's hair is actually brown...no hate, just thought you'd like to know!

Amazing drawing. I was looking for a picture of a dragon rider, and this is the second time I've come across this picture. The other time was on this page iblog.stjschool.org/library/20… I see this was here first, so I wanted to make sure you knew that other people were using your picture.

Hi thank you so much! I actually had no idea it was posted there... and honestly I am not even sure how to remove it from that site... But thank you for bringing it to my attention. :)

No, silly. Eragon is a book by Christopher Paolini (I think that's how to spell it) and it appears this drawing was somewhat based off the movie (which I really think they messed up on). But I can understand the idea, I see some similarities to Link too; both storywise and appearence wise.

This really good but Eragon is not blonde haired and blue eyed. He has brown hair and hazel eyes.

I'd post my drawings here as well, but I need to finish them and learn how to color in Photoshop or whatever xD
