Razorbacked Wyvern by RadiantGlyph Razorbacked Wyvern by RadiantGlyph
Like this? Check my journal ^^

Does this go here? I think so...

Drawn with felt tips, coloured in Photoshop CS. This is one of the many species of Feian wights, the Razorbacked Wyvern. it hasn't had any 'page-time' in the books yet but they are to be found int TSS. Not that that's anything special, but yeah, I liked it, and decided to submit it seeing as I haven't uploaded anything for a while.

Pardon the static pose, 'twas done as a 'basic image' for my encyclopedia

I cannot even begin to tell you how greatful I am that you've posted this. I was designing a dragon, and I knew in the beginning that she was going to be a wyvern, but I couldn't figure out the anatomy well enough to draw her in just a plain old standing pose. This helped me figure it out, thanks so much!

Would you be particularly offended if I posted some Monster Hunter style weapons based on this beautiful thing? I quite like the colors of it, and it's got some really beautiful unique features I think would give the weapons based on it a lovely unique flair.

Wicked cool though I always thought the wyvern only had at most, 2 legs. Not 4. 4 would make it a dragon wouldn't it?

awsome wyvern

May I use this picture as a reference for a character of mine? I will keep the signature on and I wouldn't alter the picture in any way (besides make it smaller), and I won't be making a profit from it in any way. I just can't draw, and this wyvern is exactly what I had in mind for a character of mine. I understand if ou say no. Thank you if you answer! <3

Thanks very much :D
DinoHunter2 Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Very, very cool. But to me, that tail fin is just way too big. But maybe it wouldn't seem that way if I could compare it to the creatures full wingspan.
RadiantGlyph Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
Ahhwell. I like it that way.
Rebmakash Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2006
Beautiful detail and anatomy! I love the colors on the crest.
scrii Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2006  Student
Oh wow, that is beautiful... the wings look so shiny and I love the edge to it!!
Ahh you and your talent..
MikoUnisto Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2006   Writer
I just had a question...

When you do the guide to Feia, after you get all those books writen and everything, are the pages with the different creatures going to be kinda like this? Just a thought, it'd be pretty cool to see a picture of the creature with a whole list of stats next to it.

Awesome design.
Muddpuppy Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2006

cruxis-swordsman Featured By Owner May 8, 2006
Pretty cool wyvern =P

Though the position of the wings is a bit ackward =/
RadiantGlyph Featured By Owner May 8, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
Yah, they have a weird wing design in general, but it probably looks a little odd while they're folded. I should draw a pic of it with them open some time ^^
cruxis-swordsman Featured By Owner May 8, 2006
Yeah, Wyvern usualy have wings folded towards the ground (like so [link]), maybe that's why they seem weird o.O

I suggest a pose like this; [link]
RadiantGlyph Featured By Owner May 8, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
Well I'm not exactly new to wyverns and dragons, I've been designing and drawing them for a long time. This is just the way I decided to design the Razorbacked, the idea was to be just a little different to the common animal. I have enough generic wyvern breeds already, if everything in the Feian world was generic, it wouldn't be interesting.
cruxis-swordsman Featured By Owner May 9, 2006
Hm, if you say so, lol.

Sorry if I seemed like I was thinking you were inexperienced or something... <.<;;
Key-FeathersMLP Featured By Owner May 20, 2006
Wyvern is general is- two wings, two hind legs. Apart from that, I dont even care if the wing pits are attached to its arse :P Woot for artistic licence.
skylat Featured By Owner May 8, 2006
wow! this is amazing! 8D

i love wyverns! the markings are awesome! i love it's colors and the way you drew the wings! n__n
i think the pose it's great! *fav*
Misuto Featured By Owner May 8, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Wyvern! I always get a kick out of that word and I don't know why. Anyway, I like colors on it, they're very crisp.
madmen Featured By Owner May 8, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
Hm... something that kinda stood out was that the base of the horn is very close to the eye. When you think of it in a skeleton way, you may want to plave more bone mass between the eye's bridge and the base of the horn. In real life, that area would be too weak, which would render the horns useless, because if it were to actually use them, that bone directly above the eye would snap.
:XD: Sorry, hon. I don't intend to be mean. It's very nice otherwise! The skin textures are good. :nod:
evilinnocence Featured By Owner May 8, 2006
detail = YES!!!

And I like how stretchy the skin looks on the wings! Great digital work!
