Do you have any suggestions on what kind of animals that can be used as a reference when you are drawing a dragon?

You are incredibly talented, and this is really impressive.

Hi! So sorry for late reply. Thank you, so very much! Aah, I don;t think I'm all so good, but your words really do mean a lot.

I have a really great book here by Terryl Whitlatch (shes a concept/ biological artist) and I've drawn some of my anatomical inspiration from her. Mostly I reference from wolves/ dogs (for the chest/ legs/ torso), birds (chest, wings, neck), bats (wings) lizards/ crocs (body, legs, claws, tail), dinosaur skeletons and reconstructions (everything), and sometimes other artists interpretations! I can have a few animal images open at a time if I'm really trying hard to capture a certain look.

Again, thank you! And best of luck. Dragons can be so much fun because you can mash traits from many different animals together :)

Here we go!

I find this to be a very impressive dragon, although you call it simple. Dragons are incredibly hard to draw, to make them look this good. I wish I had your talent :3

Thankyou! <3 I've been trying to focus a bit more on realism lately (well you know, when I can get time to draw x3) It's great fun C:

Absolutely LOVE the wings! They look so realistic, how they look like they can bend and fold. I also like how you stuck to the more original Western stule of dragons, with bird-like feet and bellies close to the ground. It's a nice change from the usual. Looking forward to seeing it in colour!

Thankyou so much! I'm trying to branch out from the 'usual' dragon, there's so many around.
It's great to hear that C:

Really awesome :) The only thing I noticed that didn't look quite right was the head - it seems to be tilted in a weird way? But what do I know about dragon anatomy? :P
SamuraiDragon's avatar
Thankyou! Yeah, I noticed the head was out a couple of times, tried to fix it once.
It wasn't so much the tilt that gets me it's the jaw, it looks kind of... dislocated .-. I'll likely fix it when I (hopefully) get to colouring C:

lol, maybe he had just been a fight :3

If you redrew/edited it with the mouth closed... ? Would that fix it?
