Very cool. I love the creatures wide regal form. It's very imposing.

I feel like I want one of these as a pet, to ride places and just freak people out in general, but...

I also feel that it's like, super tiny. Like maybe ferret sized, but thinks itself this huge, imposing monster, feared far and wide, when really... everyone just thinks its so god damned cute they can't even

tiny but ferocious

Dragon-like: enough so to get categorized as such, later today. Thanks for sharing - as usual, I'll be passing along/sharing in hopes that more folks take notice.

It's really rare that major game houses outsource work to freelance artists, and I'm unable to relocate... so I don't apply for jobs in the game industry (unless remote work is an option). You're otherwise right of course... ; )
