Flat-Colored Anatomy Reference Sheet for the Official Dutch Angel Dragon Field Guide and website!

Here's a full run-down of DutchAD anatomy, folks!  This is a thorough guide on the basic feral body anatomy, some general information, and pointers as to the unique features of this species.  These are just a few pieces I completed for the Field Guide debuted at Anthrocon '16.

Among the other artwork I did for the Field Guide and website includes a full comparison between DutchADs and standard Western dragons, a comparison of leg types and those of DADs, (for which I've coined the term 'digiguligrade,' haha,) a detailed skull study and more.  I will be posting these in parts over time, so not to overflow folks with a ton of anatomy information, but stay tuned on the website for the entirety of the Field Guide with even more info on the species background, lore, and abilities as a downloadable PDF file!

The website will be updated with standalone shots such as these feral body shots, the skeletal leg anatomy, skull study, and more here soon.


Official website: www.dutchangeldragons.com/


If anyone has any questions regarding DutchAD-specific anatomy, comparing it to those of other dragon species, or anatomy in general, (anthro included,) don't hesitate to ask me!  I'll be happy to answer any questions pertaining to these topics, anatomy for your specific character's physiology, and more.

Want your own Anatomy Reference Sheet for your character?  I do accept commissions for these types of pieces, fine-tuned to your design.  Please Note for inquiries and specific pricing.

You must've studied a lot of anatomy to make this! (I mean, I don't understand how you drew the muscles lol) This helped me with my Dutch dragon a lot, thanks!

Sorry to randomyl drop my art in, but do you think this a good interpretation?
I kind of deliberately didn't follow this design exactly but it sems like most people don't?

Oh, what's the situation with feathers and scales? I'm taking it dutchies can't be completely covered in these, but they are for "accents" ?

Looks good! And this is just a basic guide of a simple Dutchie. Of course folks can have characters that are shaped a bit different, different proportions, etc, just as any creature does. 

And Dutchies must be mostly covered by fur and feathers, and scales can be added as accents, yes.

I have a question. For both Anthro and feral, is there a certain height for them? I am designing a Dutchie, and I don’t know how tall it should be. For both feral and Anthro?

For each of them, the range is from about house-cat-sized to the size of a large bus or truck & trailer.

On the official species page it says they can be as small or big as they want, so it's up to you

seems my dragon "avarus" looks like a angel dragon and a ???(i guess european/night fury style/esque) mix, doesnt it :P, although its probably only similair in looks :)

amazing ref sheet, i like it.

i really like it when people go the extra mile and "design" a species into the very detail.
