It’s been a long time since I’ve sat down and drawn a dragon like this. I’m used to quadrupedal dragons with lizard noses and short, thick necks, but this guy was a lot of fun. Also, wattles are silly and I love them.
Ha! Betcha didn’t expect another dragon so soon, didja??
That’s okay, neither did I.
Obligatory water dragon—great big polar bear feet, a salamander tail, and high nostrils—what do you want? He’s not entirely water-bound though which I suppose makes him more of a lake-dragon and less of a sea-dragon.
So this is easily the most stereotypical dragon I’ve ever made…
I drew about 6 the other day that I really liked—all different kinds—so I decided I’d color ‘em up for warm-ups and post them. This is the first, and probably my least favorite. I’ve been calling him Smaug.
I figured that a dragon with a gold hoard would likely want to keep it all in a mountain cave; where only a dragon could reach it. So unless they were content to chew on mountain goats, they’d have to travel some distance for food. This one’s large wings and feet would allow it to soar over forests and fields, dropping down to snatch up prey or even crush its spine before carrying it off.
