Do you Dream of Dragons?

Creation's Whim is the first illustration in the A Dream of Dragons - Illustration Series 2. This illustration features a dragon with a blend of design elements from eastern and western dragons. This is my largest and most complex piece yet, clocking in at over 150 hours. The original digital piece is 24" by 36". 

Prints are done on metallic photo paper. Unlike standard papers, metallic photo paper gives an iridescent sheen to prints. It makes the scales look metallic and the dragon almost come alive. 

There will be a new illustration from this series released once a year in the summer. 

About the Illustrator

My name is Tania Richter, and I'm a fantasy illustrator and knitting pattern designer. My art features dragons and fantasy creatures of various sorts, often original creatures and new dragon species.

Add-on items  

How to add on items to a pledge - Simply choose your choice of initial pledge level and add the total amount from your add-on items to your pledge. For example, if are in the US and you pledge at the Medium Print Tier and want a water bottle, you would choose the Medium Print Tier as your pledge and in the second page you would change the pledge amount from $25 to $55 after adding $25 for the waterbottle and $5 for shipping to the original pledge. After the campaign has finished you will receive a survey about your add-on items. Please note the combination packages of the Playmat/Print combo, Three Playmat combo, and the two Dragon Treasure Levels. 

If you are ordering multiple of the same item you do not need to add additional shipping.

Please don't hesitate to message me if you have any questions!

FAQ

A - Yes! All prints from the campaign will be signed.  

Q - Will any of the prints be numbered?
A - Not during this campaign. 

Q - I want to order a reward, but I also want one of the add-on rewards. Do I have to pay separate shipping for each?
A - Prints and add-on rewards ship separately due to differences in size and shipping requirements. If you are ordering multiple of the same reward, there is not additional shipping charge. Please see the add-on rewards section for more information. 

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions!

 

Risks and challenges

Having run a successful Kickstarter last year, I've managed to negate most risks and challenges. As with any project, there is always the possibility of physical rewards being lost or damaged in shipping. The art is already done so all that remains is to order rewards and ship them out.
