I am undecided which character in my story, The Dragon Child, this dragon depicts, but I do know he's protecting something. I might try adding color later, but most of my art is black & white like this.

I do intentionally approach dragons in such a way they do not look scaley. I don't picture them scaley but more or less with a sleek coat like a horse (for example).

Love it! The paws are awesome! The right one could use some touching up, and the head seems off somehow. Lvoe your version of dragons!

...Can't... stop... commenting.... I like the action in this piece, it's very well done showing movement and directional change. It looks like he/she is hunting and the prey took of at an unpredicted angle and now he/she must correct the course to catch the meal.

The head looks a lot like a horse in a meat eating way... the pose and the over all composition is pretty cool... I like how the tail is for shortened to give this more depth...

:-) Tricia L. Martin replies: "A kelpie perhaps? LOL! Yeah, I think you're right. That's not entirely by accident, though. Thanks for the comment."

interesting dragon... though I cainda think his snoouth is a bit too big... and maybe you should have tryed adding some sort of background??? At least to show weather he is flying or standing on the ground... hope you didn't mind the critick... I would go in to more detaill here... but I'm affraid I'm not in the mood for criticking right now... sorry...

:-) Tricia L. Martin replies: "Not a problem. I appreciate all sorts of different opinions. I am not real handy with backgrounds so I generally don't do them. He is on the ground, if that helps. Thanks."
