Creature feature for April at wetcanvas hehe
"The Lindwurm from Germanic lore, is a winged serpent that has no legs or feet. It has a scaly green-gold body, with which is guards treasures. The lindwurm symbolizes war and pestilence, and is known to eat cattle and people."
Simple creature really but i got to test this solvent for colouring pencils on it, but basically you need a good layer of pencil for that to blend them nicely hehe but can work in layers ^-^
Edit: Yes I know this isn't the usual depiction of a lindwurm-a long serpent with two forelimbs. Although a wing is technically a limb so in a way it is a serpent with 2 limbs still, just an interesting take. Anyways I believe I grabbed this description from a monster encyclopedia I had on my book shelf at the time. I needed a quick monster for a forum challenge. I took a description from a book and then drew a creature to match.
I know the term lindwurm (translates to mean snake dragon) was used widely and could cover anything from giant serpents, sea monsters (Norse tales) to full on dragons especially in european tales. The typical form in european folktales tales and heraldry has two short legs and occasionally also small wings.
