This is incredible. The angle, depth and detail all ad to the sense of the piece. Skillfully done.

But I have a question...
Can someone please explain to me the difference between a dragon and a drake?

I've heard some people use the terms interchangeably and others devoutly separate them, yet no1 seems to be able to word the difference in comprehendible terms...
Hopefully I am not imposing by assuming that someone here may explain this to me, since you use both terms for your work.

Thanks for the great comments:)

I am not sure of the distinction between Dragon and Drakes, except I think drakes are lesser in general, not as big or smart, and often seem to lack forelimbs or wongs. But it does vary from setting to setting and I think in historical literature the distinction is even more subjective.

And thank you for trying to help me understand the difference between drakes and dragons (though i'm still confused).

I don't think there is really any hard and fast distinction, draw the line where you think it works:)

All the damage and Debris! This must've taken so much effort, time, and work!

Not to mention all the detail on the Drake and background! It's so inspiring!
I've got so much to learn in art, and this really makes me just get lost in awe.

From the barstool to the gracious ceiling I think I can piece together some sort of story. Someone put salt in his cup! I'd be pretty mad too.

I'm really loving the perspective on this. Although I'm sure the people living in the house the dragon just destroyed aren't so fond of it.

Look out below! You can almost hear the damage being caused! The tail looks equally dangerous as well as all the fangs claws and talons.
