Dragons are such cool mythical creatures. From their grandiose appearance to their docile states inside their dwellings, dragons have inspired folklore and fantasy stories for centuries. The bombastic sections of this piece depict the dragon showing just how large it is to the knights that are tasked with fighting it. The dragon occasionally goes into docile states in its cave, with small fire embers floating all around it.
