Incredibly rare, Dragonite only live on a few remote islands. They are known for their incredible size and strength, but also for their friendly demeanor.

I realized while coloring this that they are basically a big goofy version of Charizard. I went for a more tradition dragon look, but wanted to keep the eel-like features in the face.

Thank you. Looking back though I wish I’d stuck closer to the silhouette of the original design.

This is an amazing interpretation of Dragonite! I love it! <3
Normally I hate Dragonite, and keep my Dragonair at its mid-evolution stage, but if Dragonite were more like this I'd evolve her :D

Wow, you actually linked the previous stages to such a drastically different form? Unheard of.

I rather like this one. I don't quite know how wings on the back would work in real life (though I have a speculation that modified shoulder blades just might work), but this is a pretty nice look for the pokemon.

That's cool, I have been sketching a feew ideas for realistic pokemon. My Dratini/dragonair were basically like long tadpoles, eventually sprouting legs and skin on its back for gliding as it got older.. And dratini/dragonairs "wings" on its head being gills, and shrinking down to useless flesh on the head when it grows into a dragonair. Many pokemon could easily be amphibians this way lol. Never thought of eels though.
