Obsidian Drake

Made in part by asking my friend what colors she liked

    This Obsidian Drake is an ambush predator most commonly found near and around volcanic mountains. Most of her time is spent in a pseudo hibernation state drawing in her body heat to support her major organs. When the call to hunt occurs she floods stored body heat into her extremities and takes to the skies. Using a combination of scent and excellent vision she will target herds of animals by going into a step dive and grabbing an animal with her talons.

    Her relationship with other Dragons is interesting. Being smaller and leaner she isn't designed for a straight fight, but when in a dive. Her speed and razor sharp obsidian skin turn her into a lethal projectile slicing into armored flesh and bone with ease.

    In regards to human contact she is most vulnerable to arrows and bolts damaging her large wings. Though it is important to note that by flooding excess heat to the wounded area she can reshape surface obsidian to form a new layer of protection.

    Lastly is her volcanic breath. Short ranged, the temperature put forth by such an attack is unrelenting and causes all matter of wood to instantly burn and iron to melt.
    
    Similar to other dragons she can disguise herself in a human form, also she can talk to cats.

Fantastic lighting around the Flesh of the Dragon and the transparency of the Wings. The Smoky atmosphere is also a nice touch.
