Gringotts Dragon

Okay. So ever since reading the Deathly Hallows I knew I wanted to draw this dragon. I dunno why but I just really loved him and felt really sorry for him. I kinda forgot about it for a long time so consequentially never got round to drawing him. Then the other day we watched the Deathly Hallows part 2 in my last Philosophy and Ethics lesson. I love the part when the dragon bursts out of Gringotts and just sits on the roof taking deep breaths of the fresh air for what looks like the first time. I dunno, I think the film did this creature amazing justice and the scene was done beautifully, the dragon captures a great deal of freedom and escaping from a painful past for me. Check the scene here if you haven't seen the movie :) [link]

Anyway. I'm on summer break now, I kinda wanted my first picture of the Summer to mean something to me, not just another Commission. The Commissions are coming now, promise. I'm starting as soon as I've posted this.

I know I didn't draw his scars and chains, but I wanted to draw him looking all free :heart: Just swooping down to land in a field as a storm breaks after he feels fresh rain on his wings after all the time underground in the dark. I think my dragon drawing is getting a bit better, this is the first dragon picture I'm vaguely happy with, the others just looks retarded. I may try drawing more of them. Not too happy with the colouring though, but whatever. I'm used to drawing fur.

Wow thanks so much <3 The dragon does look a little stiff and not flowy enough to me, but I'm far from used to drawing them XD <3
