I'll be the first to say it, I love this print. I like the way CD and HCG handled these prints by not releasing them until they thought they were "done". The finished product was worth the wait. Reminds me a bit of Blizzard and how they release games "when done".

If you don't care for dragons, The Hobbit, metallic inks or Craig's style this may not be your favorite print. If you do, then pick this up.

One of my favorites from Drake. Easily the most detailed print I've ever seen him do.

I like this print too.

I think You are wrong about the way it was handled and HCG and CD not releasing them until they were "done" - Buyers were never told the art wasn't done until far after the money was spent- and even then it was more of a rumor. There was no communication. It was poorly handled and I think everyone now accepts that it was. Ordering a print in mid-April and having it arrive on the last day of June was well handled? I am happy with my Drake prints, that being said.
