Artist Notes:
He has an interesting past....

"Rosemarie... I'll find you... they may have taken my wings, and my tail, but that won't stop me from coming after you. I hold the locket you gave to me, the one with our pictures in it. I'm sorry I didn't wear it before they came... but I'm coming for you."

Colored Version:


In truth, I just can't draw wings right...

This critique is my first, be gentle.

What I like in the drawing is its cleanliness, the fact that it is centered and I found it original. It's really a good idea, a dragon perched atop a tree trunk who taking a look at his medallion in his paw.

However, I think that there is not enough contrast black/white.
I think if you must add a little more shades on the dragon it would have been better.

There is also something that bothers me in his anatomy : His paw, with which he holds the medallion contains no claws.
He should also have much larger horns on his head and dragons don't have ears, just a hole. It lacks the nostrils and they should be normally visible because they are positioned slightly to each side of the muzzle. He also don't have scales which give us the impression that he has a smooth skin. It also lacks horns that should adorn the top of his neck.

I see he has a mustache and the only dragons that possess them are Japanese. The problem is that these dragons don't have wings and yours possesses. It raises questions about its origins.

And normally, a dragon has the paws directly linked to his wings ( Thanks to Skyrim ).

Sorry for my bad english and if i have perhaps give the impression of being too harsh !
What do you think?
