Dragons! :O

Here's a commission WIP . . .

w00t for sketch.

Lemme know what you think. :-P The buyer says it's ready for ink, but there could be something piddly beyond character design that I missed.

The dragons look too much like dogs...

It's not my dragon design; it's a commission. The references she gave me had their bodies built more like dogs than how you would see most dragons. *shrugs*

Besides. They're dragons. They're 100% up to the artist anyway as to how to portray them; it's not as if you can point to a living breathing creature and say, "No, you idiot, THAT'S a dragon!"

Gotta go with Gatrosk on this one cause they look nothin like dogs to me. The arm threw me off a bit. But i like it. Especially the top dragon. Mainly because his expression looks like somethin from a disney cartoon.

If those are clouds behind them and no background is present I say go with the inking!

they do actually have dog-like builds. but as gat said, it's all subjective. dragons are portrayed a lot of different ways. the luck dragon from the neverending story...now THAT's a dragon that looked like a dog. and in the animated version of the hobbit, smaug looked like a cat.

Though I too want to see dragons in a lizard style build, they are still very well drawn dragons. The positioning seems pleasant to the eyes.

Of all the movies I'm surprised that haven't remade those.
