I cannot with you. This is beautiful. The base of the dragon's neck DOES look a little too thin since it's gonna be leading into the muscles that go down the back and wings. But. This is such a super cool style, and I do love the composition, and how you get every badass element of the dragon in there without having to draw the whole body.

I try what I can. d: And thank you! This one was just so much fun to work on. Even the writer himself said, he needed dra-dragons in his book, which I see as quite a compliment for my dragons~! :D

Did you know that in China its believed a human can't look at the fully glory of a dragon? This is why there are always clouds, trees and mountains hiding parts of it.
