What a long title. Probably my longest.

Anyway!

This is a cellshaded template commission for agdragoon, wo wanted me to design a template standalone of a common Pern dragon and a seperate one for her mutated character, who has 4 wings.
Since I was working right in the centre of my confort zone, it did not take me too long. If was also a lot of fun, heh.

Only agdragoon is permitted to use this template, please respect that.

8 hours in SAI and Photoshop CS5

Interesting interpretation of them. Not used to seeing them done with forelegs longer than the hind.

I had wanted them with a more horse like proportions as that's how i saw them XD

I am not familiar with this dragon species, as I have never read the books^^

Very nice, and you're good at drawing. One criticism I might make, and possibly more realism(even with telekinesis) I might have added more muscles to the hindquarters/tail of the four-winged dragon?

Technically a design like this is close to impossible, because the wings are adjusted at the pelvis and it is supposed to have some sort of second breast to be able to flap them properly. Keeping this in mind it was wiser to not have any muscles at all behind the pelvis and mark it as fantasy than doing something inbetween, which would not work anyway but made the design look less appealing:)
All in all I drew what the commissioner has asked me to and therefore I did not pay too much attention to realism^^

I always pictured Pern Dragons with two wings (that's how they were drawn on the book covers along with frills everywhere) but this is pretty awesome and well done.

The concept of four wings on a Pern dragon is not my idea but the commissioners:)

true, and its always up to the reader's and artists's views and opinions on how a fictional dragon species can look like.
