Dragon Art Study by Tsitra360 Dragon Art Study by Tsitra360
This is a personal art study in which I force myself to be creative with the dragon anatomy. Still not quite there.

No guidelines or references. This was also mainly becuase a real life friend of mine told me that my dragons were becoming...bland, too similar. So that was a challenge for me.

(He also wants me to draw all the dragons from HTTYD >_> )

Program: Sketchbook Pro

From the top: Which dragon head is your fave?
From the bottom: Which full dragon pose is your fave?

The head on the far right has a chill/confident look about it. Definitely a favorite.
As for the pose that has to be the middle one. It has a child like curiosity and happiness about it.

XDDD Oh, and by the way....


want you to know that you are amazing & you're my friend until my death. If I don't get this back, I understand. But, I have a game for you, once you read this letter, you must send it to 15 people, including the person that sent it to you . If you receive at least 3 back, you are loved. Nobody knows how important something is until...................they lose it. Tonight, right at 12:00a.m., the person you like is going to realize that they love you! Then, something is going to happen to you between 1:00 & 2:00a.m. Be ready for the greatest shock of your life. If you break this chain, you, you are going to have bad luck with love for a whole year. Send this to 15 people and see what happens ♥♥♥ ^^

Hmmmm
He is kind of right, you only draw one type of dragon, the european drake. Try a wyvern sometime, they're difficult but fun. Asian dragons can also be interesting.

Also, if he thinks European drakes are too common, he should see my more recent works with Katana and Spirit. I've been trying to think outside the normal with those too. And my next OC, Agera, will be beyond anything I've done so far...

True, I only draw one type. I guess I'm a fan of the western style, and haha no I don't like the drake styles.

That is cruel to make me pick a favorite one when they are all so grand faces. Poses I like the middle one the best. But those faces are all excellant!

I like the second dragon head and the second pose (though I do say that it could be turned a bit more to make it more interesting but thats just my opinion)
