Javelin's Wyvern by arvalis Javelin's Wyvern by arvalis
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.

Looks like this fellow can outrun a person. =x I wouldn't want to be enemies with it. It could subdue a person a number of ways!

Is it just me or does the wyvern's tail look a bit like a Black Gravios' tail?

arvalis Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
It might look a bit like its tail, but this one is like a paddle; notice the silhouette in the corner ;p

SephyreDelmalo Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2010
Ha, you're right! I was occasionally looking at the silhouette but I just didnt look at the tail there... :XD: That's one painful and pokey looking paddle to get tail-whipped if it WAS in Monster Hunter~

Interesting, would this be related to the Rathain/Rathalos line of Wyverns? (Head is quite similar, and it shares a similar body style).

Very nicely done, I may post my own creations later on, so keep an eye out ^^

(Happy Dinosaur Month~! or so i was informed...)

Interesting take on the mythical creature. :> The oar-shaped tail is an interesting touch; something of an aerial rudder maybe...?

S'fun and exciting to see your portfolio taking shape, RJ. :nod:
