Docerian Dragon by KaiserFlames Docerian Dragon by KaiserFlames
Bimembrus Volturius

One member of a small family of vertebrates belonging to the planet Docerae whose main familial characteristic is, on top of the normal quadrupedal limbs, the addition of a third pair of limbs which usually appear in the form of wings.

More commonly known as dragons, these creatures make their home in the northern mountains of the planet's largest main continent. They are opportunistic hunters and scavengers which use a crocodile style ambush form of hunting to capture prey, crouching in wait and lunging with surprising speed at their victims. They feed mostly on larger cervids and are known to have cannibalistic tendencies. Dragons are highly territorial and will fight off any intruders, sometimes going as far as to kill their opponent if it refuses to back down. Female dragons tend to only lay two or three eggs at a time, and will generally only stick around long enough for the young to hatch. The newborns are generally able to care for themselves within the space of a few hours. Young dragons will stick together for the first few months of their lives before either splitting off from each other or killing off the weaker siblings.

Full-grown, a dragon is similar in bulk to an African Elephant or rhinoceros. Huge.

------------------------

Mmm. This is what I want to do for the REST OF MY LIFE. Seriously. Creature design is the most amazing thing... I love it so very much.

Anyway, this is a creature from the world that ~Bloodwater and I jointly birthed from our minds, Docerae. This creature is a distant cousin of the Aquenn, gryphon-like creatures whose intelligence rivals that of the humans that also share the world. This fellow in particular was spawned when I started writing this years NaNo. He, and another of his kind (probably a mate) killed the main character's parents. Kind of corny, maybe, but it works for the story. Since then, I've decided i'm REALLY not feeling up to NaNo this year, but will probably focus my energies on doing some more stuff like this. We've put a LOT of thought into this whole world and there is absolutely NO SHORTAGE of things to illustrate and explain.

THIS IS NOT FOR USE. PERIOD. Please do not steal it.

I love all of the tiny details, like the folds of skin where its legs meet its body. Fuzzy and scaly and leathery and awesome!

I love the way you've drawn the toes, all skewed in different directions the way they are on lizards. Great eye for telling detail, there!

LoL it's like lumpy potatoes :P

Speaking of which, you should make a potato dragon, with roots for feet and vines for appendages....

Or a fish dragon, BETTA FACES are like PERFECT for wyrms.

Awesome. Lurve the colors used, they really help to communicate the "im going to hide and then jump out and tear your face off" style of hunting.
