After I finished my drawing of the dragon eye, I decided to begin a systematic study of a dragon's anatomy. Personally, I never want to be that close to a dragon's tooth...especially if you figure that the scale is about the same as that of the other drawing (i.e. a human hand is about the size of his pupil...compare a pupil to a fang...then run!) (Charcoal and conte and Lumograph pencil) Comments? Suggestions? Off the wall observations? (I have to admit...those are my favorites...)

Whoah. Just... whoah. My halfhearted attempts at conte have never come up with anything near as nicely done as this, and as for charcoal... I'll definitely have to visit the eye. 2

*laughs* thats assuming all dragons are mean. Then again.... nah. I wouldn't worry. Most dragons don't like the taste of human flesh anyway 2 Nice though... looks just deadly enough.

An excelent picture, i like the detail of the fang. You can really see the veins 2 As you can probably tell i love Dragons 2

Great piece. If you're looking for other aspects of ddragon anatomy and the mechanics of dragon-flight, Peter Dickinson's "Flight of Dragons" is a wonderful read, and it's full of inspirational pieces (one of which an elfwood artist copied and tried to pass as her own. i put an end to that nonsense.) and paintings to get the juices going.

This is a great start. I like this picture, although, (tell me if I'm stupid,) I'm not really sure were on\in a dragon's mouth this is. If you ever get around to it, try to get a bit more of the dragon in there, but nice anyway!

Oooo, coolness. I think the only real improvement here could be to get rid of the white space. Fill it all in black, and maybe use a white charcoal pencil to really make them glint. Great picture though.

neat-o! 2 this is great. reminds me that I should work more on my dragon bodies and try to get them from different angles, not always from the side...but, it's so damn hard! anywhoo, this is great!
and, did anyone realize that Too Close For Comfort is the name of Darren Hayes' most recent world tour? just felt for metioning that. 10 *gives cookie*
