Ho-kay so, here's this adventurer, he's chillin'. "Damn that is a sweet adventurer" you might say "Round". Alright, Ruling out freezing, a bunch of rocks crashing on him in, sudden affixation, or melting by a giant lazer, he's definitely going to turn into a dragon.
A gift image I did for Dragoniade over here at www.dragoniade.deviantart.com that took 2 years with hiatus (hiati?) to make.
