Dragon by ANIMAfelis Dragon by ANIMAfelis
Typical D&D dragon. I might put some colour on it at some point too...When i stop being bored all the time...

----------

EDIT:
Since there's so many of you out there who liked it, I would like to thank everyone who has commented, faved and included my dragon to their groups. I am quite honored indeed and long overdue to appreciating all of your comments, so, really, thanx!
:D

EDIT 19/12/2012:

I am writing this because it has come to my attention more than once that some people here on DA seem to think that this drawing belongs to them, as they claim it's their art.

PEOPLE, PLEASE RESPECT MY COPYRIGHTS AND STOP STEALING MY ART!

Art theft is not something new in the DArt community, but it's been happening too often lately and it's a bit of a shame really. If people can spend the time to claim one of my drawings as their own, I'm pretty sure they could also spend their time more productively making actual, original art of their OWN.
I'm no Leonardo Da Vinci myself, but I do work long and hard on my stuff and I'm damn proud of my work to let some stupid sod think they own it.

I am not above letting people create their own version of something I have made, with due credits and all, like this guy here: [link] who ASKED me first, but this THEFT thing is kinda ridiculous.

I can obviously not prevent anyone from actually stealing my stuff in the larger scale, but, next time one of you decides this is a good idea, please consider that from *my* point of view, deciding to STEAL my art means:

1) You're too LAZY to get your butt down to work and create something original of your own.
2) You're too WORTHLESS, UNINSPIRED and/or INSECURE to create something original of your own.
3) You're too IMMATURE to care at all.

And I am too pissed off to be polite about this. If anyone feels offended by this statement, please send me a note with your argument and we can talk about this like grown ups.

And that is why I'm putting the watermark on this.

-You CANNOT alter this artwork in any way.

-You can create your own version using this as a guide and WITH DUE CREDITS TO ME, but that's just about it.

-You can reblog it, share it or whatever, BUT WITH ALL CREDITS GOING BACK TO ME AND THIS DEVIATION.

-You CANNOT sell this anywhere.

-You cannot use it in your portfolio or whatever. It belongs in mine.

This is the perfect example of a dragon, a true beauty which I could see soaring the skies. You, my fellow artist, are one of the best artists I have ever seen in my life. Best of luck to you!

Oh, hey, thanx man! Tbh, the body was partly based on a horse, but loosely.

Weeell... It's still a colorless dragon, so if you imagine a nice friendly color on him, you just might end up having a tea session with him, let alone going around him and all. Who knows! Maybe you'll have caught him in a good mood or something. :P

Ahaha! In which case, i hope you have a big enough cave for the dragon to fit in. He's very particular about proper accommodation. :P

Well, dunno about that. He's rather partial with his body parts. You'd have to be extra fluffy for some tail wrapping and all that. (Then again, that could also mean extra yummy for him. Beware!) XD

Heeeey, sweet!
It's all good on the description, really!
As for your version, it's pretty kewwl for a beginner. You do need to work on your anatomy, but that's more a matter of practice and observation. The fore-legs could be longer to be on the same height as the hind-legs, and the wings could be a bit bulkier on the shoulder blades. His neck could be a little longer as well, but then again, I think it's kinda short in my own version as well. :P
With a little bit of practice, you'll get it just fine! Keep up the good work, mate!

Hey! Do you mind if I try to draw your dragon? Its for personal use only. Since I'm not very good at drawing, I thought I'd try stuff that already exists before I attempt drawing something purely from my own imagination :)
Anyway, I love it obviously!!

Holy crap this is fantastic. It's helping me to straighten out my own terrible dragon sketch. I see now why my wings made no sense.. Simply using yours for a bit of visual reference (along with a several others I've come across by people) and it's helped tremendously already to help visualize the structure and webbing of the wings.

And god, reptilian legs.. The only legs I can do are equine and those of a woman, so again - nice to see the angles in a piece of art I agree with.

Amazing work!!

Oh, hey, thanx!

Well, my dragon was rather a mixture of equine and reptilian prowess, so I guess both work? In any case, I'm glad you found the design helpful and all. Keep it up, love! :D

The back legs are digitigrade (walks like a cat), but the front legs are plantigrade (walks like a bear). Did you do that on purpose?

:iconanimafelis:
ANIMAfelis Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2013  Professional General Artist
Shit! That's a good question! I'd never noticed. When I made it I kinda had the anatomy of a horse in mind. And also the dragon from this: [link] (0:46)

SeeNotC Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2013
Ha, don't worry. Yours is pretty cool. I only noticed because I was drawing a dragon for the first time in a while and I wanted to know what their back legs should look like; I knew that for my dragon to be able to grasp things, his front limbs should be plantigrade (since digitigrade animals typically have dewclaws instead of thumbs), but I've been drawing horse-things for so long I forgot how to draw plantigrade back legs. If I'd just been casually browsing, I probably wouldn't have noticed.

It was a good observation in any case. One I might be inclined to consider when I draw another dragon next, so thanx, really! :D
