Well, first of all I have to say this is a much better picture than your usual run-of-the-mill orc illustration. The face in particular...

I'm an architect, urban planner and a part-time artist from Zagreb, Croatia. Also, I like puppies.


I've spent Christmas and New Year holidays designing a winter dragon. I wanted to make a creature that would look both realistic and fantastic, eerie and beautiful at the same time. 

One thing in particular I wanted was to square a circle between 6-limbed and 4-limbed dragon. Dragons with 4 legs + 2 wings can have overall very reptilian/serpentine body shape, but the wings then become almost an afterthought, an obvious add-on attached to the back. Dragons with 2 legs + 2 wings are more realistic with wings better integrated into anatomy, but they tend to look like overgrown bats, sprawling around on elongated crotches. 

So in this case, the wings as sail-like structure held by spines emanating from body, attached to the front legs via a single elongated finger. Three other fingers are claws on very lizard-like feet, so when the beast lands, wings are folded into a crest-like shape along the back, and it can slither and wiggle around on all fours like a proper dragon should

No problem, you really deserve that :aww: i love the concept of the dragon and the thoughts you had while creating and design the dragon. Very impressive. Also your dark and pure blood elves are amazing! I love the ideas and the difference between them. Just awesome :clap:
