Fantasy VS Reality by Grypwolf Fantasy VS Reality by Grypwolf

:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

Finally its done! ( althought I may do little changes in flames and background later and maybe something in that tank too.) (and sorry it took me so long!)
- First of 4 posters with theme "Fantasy VS. Reality" - aaaaargh My hand hurts!! But I luvd working on with this! I loved painting that dragon, flames and even that darn tank there. I know machines are my weak point so I tried really hard with it this time anf I'm, quite happy to results. But belive me I spend too much time just sitting and damning that thing instead of painting it hahhah.
Hmmm. Now I can start design second poster and continue with commissions and all :)

WIP's
Working in progress images :))))))))

I don't know how that's reality... This tank looks really strange (but that's a detail), and in reality, that dragon would never get a chance to come that close before being blown up.

Whenever Fantasy and Reality collide like this, Fantasy always seems to win...but that's the point of Fantasy, isn't it? :)

Like right here? With a fantasy dragon kicking reality tank ass? Seriously, can real world stuff get any more pathetic?

It seems the part "besides here" wasn't obvious enough, so I'll rephrase my question - like where, besides of this picture? And like I said in two another comment, this picture has little in common with reality.

Yes, it would be mayhem... but the mayhem of dragons like this and other fantasy creatures. Somehow I don't see them standing a chance against weapons that humanity has today. Take situation pictured above - in reality, modern tanks can hit a target in distance of two, or even four kilometers (it depends on the tank type) and have multiple toys that help in aiming, like ballistic computers, fire control systems, stabilizers and turrets that move and rotate automatically (you don't have to aim manually). So in reality, that dragon wouldn't even get a chance to come that close, and even if he did, he would be shot before getting a chance to breathe fire. When it comes to the ammo, contemporary anti armour rounds (HEAT) have such firepower, that a dragon like that would be completely ripped apart. Literally. There would be nothing recognizeable left of it. Foot soldiers? No problem - Stinger, Javelin, Spike, or even LAW or RPG-7. Hell, even some not anti-armour weapons are pretty damn powerful - bigger machine guns like M2 Browning were known to shatter brick walls.

True weapons of today are very formidable, and I wouldn't like to be on the receiving end.  But it is humbling to think that somewhere out there in the multiverse are creatures so formidable nothing humans have or ever will create could hurt them(I personally think given enough time humans can solve most dilemmas but you get the idea.)

Somehow, I don't see anything humble in giving imaginary characters oh, so unbelievable powers that make the fire capable of even melting metal (although contemporary tanks are made of composite armour that would withstand something much more powerful than just flame). It is just an author'a whim, nothing else.

Sometimes we humans just want to be scared.  It gives us something to overcome.  Casing point your right, given todays technology we should be able to take down certain types of dragons.  But to early people a dragon was indomitable with few exceptions.  I like the fact you see how far we have come, and I think that's the power of fear.

If we did not fear then we wouldn't be motivated to create. 

Perhaps a dragon isn't your slice of bread.  But consider people's fear of Aliens.  Creatures that can easily outstrip modern technology terifies us.  So in response we want to improve our technology.  Heck dozens of innovations have come from this pursuit.

you see what I'm saying?

Reality may be weak against Fantasy, but Science Fiction, which is Reality's little brother, will tear Fantasy so many new orifices even Horror will balk.

Humans are part of nature. I meant that all of humanity versus one dragon would easily win, but of course only one person versus one dragon is disadvantaged

Thats awesome! :eyepopping: Just the other day i had a discussion with someone how a dragon would stand against modern warfare. I tried to create my beast that way, that it may lose in the end, but would stand its ground for a good time against tanks and guns without being too exaggerated and unbelievable: [link] (my hand drawing-skills are more than humble, i just started to try it after many years again).
In a nutshell: You work depict the situation exactly as i imagined it too! Go! Go! Go! Dragon! :w00t:
