Description

Last year I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to work on a dragon book for Scholastic by way of Becker&Mayer Books. I got to take a crack at designing 16 different mythical dragons from all over the world for a book called Sink Your Teeth Into Dragons.

This is one that most of you will surely be more familiar with, the wyvern. Wyverns are another one of those dragons that have been done so many times that its fun to play with some other ideas. For this one my though was basically, "but what if eagle was dragon". This is one of my favorites from the collection, I'm super pleased with how it came out. You'll also notice that the famous venomous tail barb is depicted here, however I went for a more stingray vibe. Sidenote, stingray barbs are super tight. Hope you guys dig it, I sure do.

Awesome! (even though I dislike most feathery dragons)
