Dragon for PhilipDraco

This time with 3 views! The front and back were quite challenging as I have never really done them, especially back view. No one ever really draws back view so reference is also very hard to find, the anatomy is probably not quite right =P
This is also probably one of the most colourful dragons I've drawn in a very long time, was fun working on this one. 

Critiques are welcome and appreciated :) 

Drawn in both Photoshop(with the ever so useful guides) and Paint Tool Sai :)

The colors look so cool! The way you colored it gives a very soft feeling, and you pulled off the shading well!

Great work with such hard-to-draw "long" characters :clap:

btw, it's fun to see back views, eyuup, but it's also fun to see such arrangement in the views. I'm more used to the "schoolish" way: the face view at the center, the left view on the right, the right view on the left, bottom on the top & top on the bottom, just like a cube (like a dice) you would roll on your paper :)
