Smaugust: Great Crested Grebe


I'm doing the Smaugust challenge this month! I made my own prompt list and I'll be drawing dragons inspired by various birds. You can find the prompt list here and if you want you can join me!

Great Crested Grebes are so pretty. I always like seeing them in the wild, diving, dancing. They're so sleek and their crests are just super nice so I wanted to make those the main features here.

That's one beautiful dragon-birb! The crest looks like really thin fluffy feathers... (or fins? I can't decide if it's feathers or fins, but it looks amazing!)
