Mosiliath by KaiserFlames Mosiliath by KaiserFlames
Sooooo... commission for ~irathray of her non-canon Pern dragon, Mosiliath. I'm not a SUPER big fan of non-canon colors, but I think he looks pretty handsome anyway.

For my own amusement, I did a quick version of him as a brown dragon which you can find HERE. Kinda looks like how I imagine my bronze-turned-turned-brown Bayanth would appear. :D

I never thought about a brown Pern dragon as having tiger stripes. Great idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very nice.
And I agree with bluedrgnMethy. The muscles are awesome.

Do you know the Temeraire series? It would be nice to see one of those dragons in your style.

Oh he's absolutely cute! I wonder, does he act like a big kitty to? :3

Lol, I'm not sure! You'd have to ask his RPer!

Haha, only when he's alone with his Rider. Otherwise, he's all-business. c:

Both versions are absolutely gorgeous.
I've got to ask, though, is the striping a non-canon recurring from a RP site or was it just a request?
I'm honestly curious, because I've only seen a few sites that do non-canon colors without getting bashed horribly.

It's from an RP weyr called Rainbow Mists, I believe.

Oh, I can answer that! He's a non-canon color at "Rainbow Mists Weyr", the RP site I'm a member of. :)

Sweet!
I was asking mainly due to the fact that the two of the Pern sites I've been involved in have both had non-canon colors, but I haven't really seen them elsewhere.
It's good to know that there are others not letting the straight canon get in the way of their creative drives. ^^

Oh, what Pern sites are you a member at? I've considered joining others, but at the same time, I just can't digress from Rainbow Mists Weyr. Even when things get slow. :)

(In all actuality, Mosiliath was originally supposed to be a Bronze, but there were too many of them at the time of my first character application...so he became a Tiger and it suits him much more. So there's something to be said for non-canon colors, I think!)

I'm a member of both Benecio Weyr and Aces in Exile.
They're semi-canon with "mutant" colors and a few interesting creatures, I honestly enjoy them both, though I've currently been more active on Aces than Benecio due to Benecio having to do a site revamp after some background issues.
I enjoy playing on them both, even though they're small. :)

Both versions are pretty! I am not a huge fan of non-canon colors either, but you've rendered this one very nicely.

The color and the anatomy is great as ever !
The light color you've use is really good, its saturation make the whole drawing look sunny.
Really nice pic !

Well, like I said in the note, I think you've done a phenomenal job! I really appreciate you putting up with my non-canon dragon. (Truth be told, he was my first non-canon color, but he's grown on me quite a lot.) Well, I think Mosiliath looks absolutely amazing, and this was entirely worth it. He also looks quite fancy as a brown, too! When I get some more money, I will have to commission you again sometime. Thanks once again! :heart:
