This is my take on my favorite videogame baddie. It took a while to color him in and the shading was hard (plus my purple pencil is an inch long now). i drew most of the body in bone form and 'draped' the skin over it in pen. i think it turned out good, but the legs look a bit too small to me, but oh well.

My bad. Forgive me. I see the wing.

I love Ridley so this is overly critical but... I like him a lot but the legs ARE to small and the wings... wing.. wtf is the other wing

Sweet zombie Jesus, that is awesome!! The legs are fine, the wings are what's too small. Ridley is my favorite videogame dragon. You should do Kraid too. Or maybe Crocomire.

Very nice dragon, I like the idea of the Hour Glass; to me it shows a hint of overcoming time. The Dragon God agrees with me perfection at most. Please draw a serpentine dragon for my son and I.

Great pic! The wings were a tad bit weak but the overall form was excellent. You should try a background to complement it.

If you ask me I think nintendo is being stupid. In trophies on ssbm and ssbb it says he is intellegent but in the games he acts about as intellegent as a blonde on a horror movie, I mean seriously all he does is attack the same way over and over again allowing himself to be killed by the same move that samus does to hurt him, when is nintendo going to make him more of the story on the games? the only story he has made since the 1st metroid game was that he killed samus’s parents, other than that he is just another thing to kill, and why wasn’t he a playable character on super smash bros. brawl...he wasn’t even a significant part of the story, if all I wanted was to kill him again I would just pop in a metroid game and get to it, and he was hurt by PIKACHU a nasty fat mouse thing that should turn to road kill was apparently able to hurt the god of all villans? nintendo has the most awesome evil character and they are taking it for granted..........AWESOME PICTURE!!!!!!!!
