Omg I'm just waiting for the moment you make baby dragons. Your dragons are so majestic but can be cute, scary, menacing, and comedic!

They are so cute XD they re my favorite thing in the world (besides anime)
Wings of fire is a great series (although not deep- it's a children's book) about dragons

You know, this dragon kinda reminds of Terrador from the Spyro trilogy. The only difference I see though is that the dragon has fins on its jaw and it has a feathered tail.

The wings are truly amazing. Well done. :) I find myself enthralled with all of your art, even though I only save the very best, otherwise I'd have my favorite folder completely flooded by now.
