This dragon is formed by the roots of an uprooted tree. A wider view is shown in DragonWood #2. For an interesting likeness, check out Cortona by Daniele Canali. Also Climbing LizardWood is from the very same tree.

Very cool, and nice job capturing it. Is this a natural formation?

kenfowkes on February 23, 2012

Yep, DragonWood is formed naturally by roots of an uprooted tree. This other picture shows more context. The dragon appearance is only from a restricted range of angles, and by adjusting the angle one can make the mouth gape larger or smaller. The other pictures are better for color-accuracy, but I thought this would make a better icon for my new group.

I know it already and it still looks very frightening :). The background seems to be in flames.

Btw, Ken, if you are interested you will find something quite similar from my favourite photos list (Page 2, the second newest photo).
