Classic Pernese!

The musculature is magnificent. :D

This is beautiful!
The color, the lighting, the stretch of hide over muscle and bone (especially over the wings), and the fact he actually looks like he *has* muscle and bone that could anatomically work - !
An amazing job. His rider must be *very* proud! =D

Very very lovely ^^ Only thing I see strange is how far the wing arm on the far wing bends, its much closer to the edge of the wing sail in compairision to the near wing.

that's very normal, actually
Finally, an excellent picture of a Pern dragon! So many people love these dragons, but there is so little quality art of them. It's gorgeous and I much prefer this look to the 'official' artwork.

Thank you! That's a pretty huge complement, considering Michael Whelan (the person who did the majority of the Pern novel covers) is one of my inspirations. :)
You deserve it, believe me. What I don't like about much of the offical cover art is the way the heads and forelegs look. The are always so spindly and sunken, it doesn't convey the power of a true dragon.

Have you any thoughts of doing some fire lizards? 8D

Most of the Pern stuff I post is commission-based, so until I've got the time to do some personal art, prolly not, though I do think the little buggers are super cute and deserve some artsy love. I've done a number of line template commissions for them (in fact, I've done probably near 100 [if not more] pern lines, dragon, wher, and firelizard), but I don't like posting those because people like to steal line-art.
Ach, that is a shame you can't put them up. You can always watermark them, but I, and other artists, feel that ruins the work somewhat. Ah well, I can be patient. ^_^ I've got you on my watch list and eagerly anticipate the coming of the super cute firelizards!

Of all the things in Pern I'd want the most, a firelizard would be it. What's better than having a small dragon on your shoulder?

That would be pretty sweet, but I do think being able to ride one the size of a small airliner would be pretty freakin' awesome.

Beautiful...and my favorite of the dragons of pern! That is the one I would want!
I absolutely adore how you depict the Pernese dragons!
