I much prefer this green(and the non-ancient green) to the dnd one. The DnD one just has such a silly looking horn, while this one looks, well, cool. In fact, I think the only dragon you've ever made I do not like is the bronze, because of its odd head(looks... bald, for lack of a better term), but other then that, they are all great.

I dare to say he looks bald to his face, I double dare you;)

Thanks for your great feed back, I do like the body design of the Bronze but unfortunately there was some initial design work of his head done by another artist, but saying that I would like another crack at how I interpreted it.

The body looks great, I love the fish-esque design on the tail. The head really is the only thing I do not like about it. I would love to see an interpretation wholely by you in the future, a head matching the body would be awesome, perhaps following the marine(or so I assume it is) theme.

It's the fucking horn that does it. Rhinodragon for the win, goddamn.

Your dragon designs are really cool; they all have such a stylish spiky silhouette (plus, in this case, that special touch of rhino ;))

I notice a lot of similarities between your work and that of Wayne Reynolds. Have you worked with him in the past, do you draw inspiration from his work, or is it simply coincidence?

I have worked with Wayne, and you can't really work on the Pathfinder Setting/Game without being influenced by his design, it is everywhere. I also think we have a similar aesthetic and blend of fantasy meets reality.

I certainly don't envy you having to try to squeeze so much dragon into such a confined space. I'd love to see what you'd do with images like these with unrestricted space to work with :XD:
Reply
:iconbenwootten:
BenWootten Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
In some ways having the wings restricted mean you can focus the image on the design and character of the body and head of the dragon which can help create a more interesting image, but saying that seeing some of these guys on the rampage wold be awesome!

That's a good point :aww: Guess there's a bit difference in optimum style between something that is more of a character design and a painting that's more about dramatic events.

I like the design of this one, it's a nice break from the more classic looking dragons I've seen around here.

Nice image but the wing position obscures the profile of the head.   I noticed the same thing with one of your blue dragons.  Given that they both are basically one color, this makes it hard to see an exotic shape or appreciate your fine work

It has the menacing majesty of a woodland predator... and a horn, what would be an aphrodisiac in china.
