Here is one of my favorites. This dragon is based off of the poison dart frog, and, like the frog, his body secretes a poisonous goo. He is also covered with several poison barbs. I have gotten a few comments recently about the legs of my dragons being too thin. if you read up on some animal biology, you will find this is simply not so. this particular dragon is built for speed and agility, and his legs are quite muscular & strong enough to support it's thin body, and light bone structure. on the larger, stockier dragons, the legs are still thin, yes, but certainly enough to carry the body mass above them. these are dragons, not dinosaurs, and they are built for a combination of speed and strength, which I think the pictures present rather nicely.

I can see skinnier legs supporting that body logically ... anyway, this is really neat, although the body structure is too human for my liking, but I’m not saying that isn’t good, so great job.
