Star Dragon

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

As a project, I decided to take upon myself to create a possible space-dwelling creature. I am a little bias towards Dragons, so I chose to make it based upon them. I had two options for mobility through space, conventional rocket propulsion as methane or solar sails. Since Methane flatulation isn't a very dignified form of travel, I chose to adapt a dragon with Solar Sails as wings. In addition to reflective wings, I chose to make the tail reflective so that it could be used as a sort of rudder to manuever carefully around suns. It can't be noticed in this black and white picture, but I believe that it would be either a pale or dark blue in color to reflect most of the dangerous high energy radiation. As for the unreflected radiation, that's what the heavy scales and shells are for. I have much more detailed information about this creature in a notebook somewhere, but I only wanted to give an explaination for why this dragon appears this way.
