MD Iron by Dragimal MD Iron by Dragimal

this is one of the 7 (periodic) elemental-themed dragons I drew a few weeks ago for my dear friend, March’s (IE- @lumpy-butt‘s), final Writing project. the project can be found here, plz check it out to see March’s cool posters and info abt each of the featured elements (I'll be uploading all 7 drawings here as well~). here's a link to the post on my Tumblr art blog of all 7, if u want to see all the drawings together…

it took me so long to upload these b/c I needed to edit them a bit first. we were under drastic time constraints at the time b/c I forgot to get started on drawing these earlier, and March got the due dates mixed up a bit, so I ended up drawing all 7 of these dragons within two days while pulling an all-nighter. I don’t think I’ve drawn so many dragons within such a short amount of time before, aha. suffice to say, the original designs March submitted for his project weren’t exactly up to my personal standards of snuff, so I spent yesterday editing and finalizing them for the public~


Iron and Neon were both a blast; I’ve always been a sucker for rounded shapes and fatty/heavy designs, so they catered nicely to my personal aesthetics~ I'm esp a sucker for heavy "lion-esque" front legs like these, they're so plump and adorable. Iron here took the second longest out of all of them to edit, b/c for some reason I decided to copy-paste all the lineart onto one layer rather than leave it all on separate layers ONLY FOR THIS DRAWING. I had to go back and cut everything apart from each other and redraw a lot of smaller details (particularly the chains) in order to give the lineart varied colors
