Seventy Feet and twelve tons of lava spewing terror, the
Molten Dragon is the largest and deadliest of all dragons.

"We were staying at my father's house at the time of his funeral. I had insomnia, and got up to sketch this dragon that would not get out of my head. As I was drawing the dragon, I got out one of my dad's books on trains, to get reference for smoke. I realized some of the features of the Molten Dragon resembled a steam locomotive. My father had been an engineer on the railroad, and had started his career operating steam locomotives. I decided to play on that theme, and added a beard in the shape of a cow catcher. I used a rhino horn for reference, as well as a volcano for the spewing lava. I decided if the dragon was full of molten lava he would need a lot of venting. The final touch was to put a mountain in the background, hinting that the volcano might be behind the dragon. Molten Dragon was painted using fluid acrylics."
