Dueling Dragons by TaffGoch Dueling Dragons by TaffGoch
Welsh (red dragon) and Britons (white dragon) battling, as prophetically-foreseen by Myrrdin Emrys (Merlin)

This is a derivative work. Original artwork is not mine. (I got it from a ten-year-old t-shirt!) I never could find who was the original-source artist

EDIT, 20 May 2014: I have received confirmation that the original artwork is from Izzy "Talin" Collier (aka, RazorGeisha )
___________________________

After much clean-up and enhancement of a scanned image, I generated the lacquered, 3D raised-relief appearance by using the Photoshop "plastic wrap" filter, and added the border to produce a "shield"

Also see larger, non-shield version: Dueling Dragons
__________________________

EDIT (20 July 2011): I have, today, discovered that the t-shirt is still available, from Pegasus Publishing, (in limited sizes)

Without the shield border looks pretty good, too.

I still want to give the original artist credit. Anyone recognize the work?

Thanks for taking the time to post a compliment, Lilaiy

It took more work than I initially thought it would, since I was working from a poor resolution t-shirt image. When finished, I think I must have manually-reproduced just about all of the line-work

I need to search my backup hard drives. One of 'em contains a high-res Photoshop version. (I did this several years ago.) When I find it, I'll update my gallery posting
