This is Javelin's wyvern. Ive wanted to design a wyvern for the character for many years, but was never pleased with a design. Once i doodled this dragon in my sketchbook, i thought i had finally nailed it. Im nicknaming it Guavern, as its color pattern was inspired by the Guava Skipper butterfly, thank *super-ninja-monkeys for that name. This is another concept for my final project pitch. Oh yeah, thank ~NuclearBandaid for helping me on this one.

I love it! I love wyverns! Probably because it is a Nordic mythical creature. I just love the paddle and wings too. I would love to see the wings unfolded. By the way have you thought if it can breathe fire or has venomous teeth etc, you know like wyverns are usually depicted.

Im sure you have gotten this before but it kind of reminds me of the Nargacuga in its body color, but at the same time it really is quite original, awesome job!

Great Wyvern. Very realistic. More than few I saw in few movies. Good job.
