I was back on a dragon kick recently, and decided to practice poses and wings. This guy looks like he's multi-jointed or as boneless as a chicken fillet. I mean really. But I like him. And my compass is my best friend for 'backgrounds' that don't take up the whole page. :)

Well I really must say that I like your colour scheme. You went with an unusual shape for a dragon as well. Very well done. ^_^

I love his little beard and ear-tufts, and the circlular background works really well with his loopy position (did I articulate that well?). Great composition!
And yay for winged snakes! Especially with little beards...

1 Oonagh R. McAreavy replies: "Indeed! Yay for the beard! *pulls the beard* Shteve's sleeping right now. Listen to him snore."

I like the dragon, the colours of the background are pretty good, but I have a simple question, of the dragoon is boneless what are the claws and that shapes on the wings?

14 Oonagh R. McAreavy replies: "Well, I called him 'boneless' because of how bendy he was, but since you ask I now declare the structural compounds of his wings to be cartilage (like in a shark), and the claws to be keratin (like hooves, nails etc). He preys on fish. And he has fishy breath. Blegh."

12 Oonagh R. McAreavy replies: "I’m sure you have. So have many others and so, indeed, have I since then. It’s a shame you haven’t uploaded your work onto Elfwood. I’d like to have a look. I love dragons."
