Smaugust: Pomeranian Pouter


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!

I learned that the long legged pigeons are actually called Pomeranian Pouters and that's even better. This leggy beast is very agile both on land and in air. Its feather stalks are very sharp and pointy and its neck pouch is covered with them. The pouch is both an intimidation and defense tactic but it also produces acid that it spits like projectiles.

You'll never look at a pigeon the same again.

Awesome, what an impressive pigeon :) You're adapted the bird features very well to a dragon, looks very realistic! One of my favourites of the series!

YES PIGEON DRAGON this makes me extremely happy. I love how you've captured that neck iridescence.

... I'll definitely NEVER look at a pigeon the same way again... O.O

By the way, what would be the size of these dragon-birds? Would they still be the same size as the birds or would they be a larger version? Because I'm not sure if I'm more afraid of large Deinonychus-sized pigeon raptors or flocks of pigeon-sized ones that roam around city parks...

Tried to figure this out for a moment, thought the title referred to pomeranian the dog. I like learning new things. ^_^
