I notice that a lot of fantasy artists tend to interpret their dragons as archosaurs, despite their longstanding association with snakes. What interests me here is the way you played up both of these elements, without either of them getting lost. It could be a crocodile who became a snake, or a snake who became a crocodile.

Also, great touch with the blue flame. The contrast against its red hide is beautiful.

Dude, you should send these in to Wizards of the Coast as MTG cards. The quality is similar to how they draw their creatures.

I like how it looks kinda like a hybrid of the aisian dragon (long, sinuous body, stubby arms , etc) and the European dragon (the design if the head, straightforward fire breath, jagged, rough-looking scales, etc)
