Here is the next part for Arokai: dragon horns!
There are 11 different types of horns and everyone has two different variations and a front view. You won't believe how difficult it was to draw a dragon head in front view... hope it looks ok. They all have the same head type, it's the official one Arokai showed us here: [link]
Sorry if it looks lame to you 'cause the heads look all the same but I would have killed myself if I had drawn for every horn a different head! And the focus of the picture lies on the horns. Instead they have special markings on it what should be also helpful for Arokai.
Part 2 is already in progress I just need to color it.
There will be again 11 more horn types on it.
Well, enjoy :)

Horn Types:

1. Standard
2. Crown
3. Icicle/Blade
4. Curved
5. Curled
6. Scaled
7. Razor
8. Skull (my favorite again)
9. Webbing
10. Broad
11. Spiked (2. favorite)

Part 2 is ready^^

Visit her, please!
She's amazing: [link]

Bone Horns and Ice/Blade Horns ftw! (I'd like the horn on Ice/Blade #1 to be on #2 xD)

This is really cool! Quite inspirational too, may I add, and quite helpful. It's hard coming up with different concepts when it comes to dragon horns.

This is awesome I love the idea of the Ice horns, They would fit PERFECTLY with the char I'm going to make. Now all I need is a face kinda like this dragons face [link]

I observed both Part 1 and Part 2 and discovered some very creative types of horns.
But.. the curled horns

Can't wait to use some of these, you're just too awesome.

It's all in my head I guess XD
And I get so much inspiration from all kind of things like music, nature, clouds or even just a mood.

This. It's amazing, along with part two! Definitely referring to these horn designs a bit in the future! Before, I found it a bit difficult to come up with horn designs, but I suspect that this will help me. :) Very helpful!!!

Very inspiring! Faved, along with the other part! :D

Thanks a lot :)
I was thinking about making more dragon part designs in the future... but I guess that will not happen in the next time. There is too many other work I have to do XD

Added this to my tutorial collection because I will most definitely be referring to this in the future.

Awesome work. Thanks!

´These might give a unique form for the head on a raptor. I´m somehow bad at drawing dragons, but raptors goes pretty good with this form of head :D
