Aelwen Rough Sketches

Trying yet another new design for Aelwen, since I've gotten progressively better at drawing/designing dragons. It helps that I've been looking into how other artists draw dragons, and also gotten advice from others.

I had a lot of fun making this, hope you like it!

And yes, her spines can go up and down depending on her mood. :)

Comments appreciated!

I love this, it's crazy how much Dragon Queen has evolved ^^
I am curious, though *SPOILERS*
Since the dragon scales are made of minerals, does this mean she has two different types of minerals? Or something else altogether?

Love the new personality trait in the drawing itself. Plus, practice makes perfect! <3

It's simply consisted of normal keratin, unlike the red scales. :)

The scales on top of the nose is really a good addition.

If these are rough sketches, consider me pumped for the more refined version because these are awesome already! :D (Big Grin) 

It will be interesting to see how you tackle drawing individual scales, as those would be very time consuming to draw one by one.
