Dragon Swarm Stock Illustration

ZIP File

Working on a RPG product and need a great piece of dragon art to make your book stand out? Does your next product need a dragon illustration, and yet you would like some flexibility on how it should look? Want a cool piece of dragon art to hand out to your players?

Look no further! “Dragon Swarm” is a premium stock art illustration perfect for your next fantasy project by freelance illustrator and comic artist Gerhard Bahnsen. With over 18 years of experience with digital illustration, his work has appeared on posters, album covers, and more.

A huge fan of indie RPGs and ebook publishing, Gerhard is pleased to present this illustration, the first in a series of stock art (or clip art) aimed at giving indie publishers a professional edge without breaking the budget.

The original illustration, “Dragon Swarm,” is 2550x3300 pixels in size and fits on an 8.5x11 page at 300 dpi, perfect for a high-resolution full page interior or cover art. All art is provided as uncompressed .TIF images so you can just plug and play.

But we’re not satisfied with providing a single version of the illustration; after all you don’t want your product to look exactly like everyone else’s. Besides, tastes differ. That’s why we’ve included around twenty variants of the illustration in a stunning array of color schemes and styles, from slick 3d CGI, to beautifully hand-drawn versions and even old fashioned worn photo-style versions, perfect for including dragons into your steampunk projects or any other style of project where dragons are of the essence. The idea is to provide you with maximum flexibility and reusability of the artwork. Besides they were so fun to make, we could hardly stop experimenting with them.

More than that, most variants have also been provided in a cropped quarter-page size and a “skyscraper” or tower sized version so that you can have the even more flexibility for using the illustration with the minimum of work. “Vignette” versions with the edges faded into transparency have also been provided, allowing you to place the image on another background for covers to make it easier to place the product titles.

Also included are the three “washed out” and textured versions made especially for page backgrounds and legibility of text so that you can even use this great image in your ebook’s interior pages.

These images are provided with a flexible license and may be used for personal or commercial use. Besides all this, they’re being made available at an insanely affordable price.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
