Looking for Canon Art Piece
« on: 31 January 2011, 11:59:31 »
A couple of days ago, I found (as a byproduct of another BT internet search) a full-color picture of a Dragon running off a small bluff and planting a foot squarely in the face of another 'Mech. I know its a fairly recent picture, but can't find it in my books and can't reproduce the internet search that led to it.

Does anyone have a link or book reference?

That's a Vohwinkle piece.  I think he has it on his website.

The first time I saw that was as a poster at Gencon a few years back, I was awed, then I cheered :)

I always loved that image. But I loved it even more when they had a Sorenson's Sabres Dragon do that exact thing in the Gencon Diorama a couple years back.
