Special thanks to :iconcovve:, who gave me a few tips.

I'd say you went a bit overboard with the decorations in the second (that shade of green chashed with her fiery red scales), but the wings do look a bit silly in the first

I love how you manage to blend realism with cuteness.

I'll take back what I said about Aelwen's blue wings. This new overall design is MARVELOUS!

And hey, you now have two styles if you ever want to be a goof and make a Kingdom Hearts style crossover.  Either way, you did a great job then, but an even better job now.

As well as the greater detail an improved anatomy, the wings are perhaps the best improvement and look like they could carry Aelwen over vast distances. I actually didn't see the pony similarities in Aelwen's first form until others pointed it out. :P

I really love the change in her dragon form, it almost fits the story shockingly well. She was forced into this different body unable to really be at home in her new body. But as of what you've uploaded to YouTube (I refuse to read the story with you voicing over it), she's now able to pass freely and be happy both as a dragon and human.
While not intend, it works really amazingly to have a new dragon form after being able to freely be both as it fits her.
I feel like you she keep both forms, even if you adapte the original to be more dragon like than it is since you (by my guess) are making this into a book book, it would be nice to have some drawings thrown at the end of a chapter.
Lol I've probably gone on an unnecessary side rant. What I'm trying to say is that I love both forms (but I prefer the second one)

Ah, yes. I do see why you called her old design a "pony dragon." I also believe dragons are in a way horses if I'm correct. Something along with the word "hippo." I dunno, just something I read.

Like I said before, love the newer design and keep it up. :D :D :D

P.S. Are you going to renew her design on Wattpad?

Ah, you changed the design of her because of how she seems too much like a pony? Yeah, at first, she did look more like a dragonfied version of your Pony OC, minus the eye color.

Possibilities for how you'll depict Cookies n' Cream though? Got a feeling she'll look flavorful! (Pun intended)

I like both designs

Pony dragon for cuteness

Dragon dragon for regalness.

I actually like both designs. It could be said that the new design is her "growing up". ;)

Seeing two different versions of your protagonist dragon side by side, the progress you have made is plain for all to see. :thumbsup:
