Is the dragon a male or a female? Nikki van de Pol

This picture is simply beautiful and the personal nature of it really shows. Maybe it’s dragons expression. A really good job. Nikki van de Pol

Do you speak Latin?
Hah, the scales look like a bunch of work! Nikki van de Pol
replies: "It’s a bit much to say that I speak Latin. But I can translate it both ways (from Latin to Dutch or the other way around) I’m a little too slow at translating to actually chat in it.
As for the scales, actually the wings took me much longer. The scales were more a bit of mindless scribbling really "

I learned Latin from the 5th to the 10th grade and have the certification to speak Latin, the "Latinum". Btw.: I started learning English in the 7th grade. ^^

replies: "Thanks I’m just interested which one people like best, cause, well, it doesn’t really matter to me as I was just following the commissioner’s orders in this. Thanks for taking the time to look at the other one too "

replies: "Thank you very much. I’m glad you like it.
In case you’re interested, I made a full-back version with opened wings too (still on request of the same guy) that you can see here: http://nikki-vdp.deviantart.com/art/Eternal-Guardian-14355731- - 6 This way the wings go over the shoulder blades and the dragon itself is on the person’s spine. "
