This is beautiful!
The color, the lighting, the stretch of hide over muscle and bone (especially over the wings), and the fact he actually looks like he *has* muscle and bone that could anatomically work - !
An amazing job. His rider must be *very* proud! =D

Very very lovely ^^ Only thing I see strange is how far the wing arm on the far wing bends, its much closer to the edge of the wing sail in compairision to the near wing.

Finally, an excellent picture of a Pern dragon! So many people love these dragons, but there is so little quality art of them. It's gorgeous and I much prefer this look to the 'official' artwork.

Thank you! That's a pretty huge complement, considering Michael Whelan (the person who did the majority of the Pern novel covers) is one of my inspirations. :)

You deserve it, believe me. What I don't like about much of the offical cover art is the way the heads and forelegs look. The are always so spindly and sunken, it doesn't convey the power of a true dragon.

Have you any thoughts of doing some fire lizards? 8D

Most of the Pern stuff I post is commission-based, so until I've got the time to do some personal art, prolly not, though I do think the little buggers are super cute and deserve some artsy love. I've done a number of line template commissions for them (in fact, I've done probably near 100 [if not more] pern lines, dragon, wher, and firelizard), but I don't like posting those because people like to steal line-art.

Ach, that is a shame you can't put them up. You can always watermark them, but I, and other artists, feel that ruins the work somewhat. Ah well, I can be patient. ^_^ I've got you on my watch list and eagerly anticipate the coming of the super cute firelizards!

Of all the things in Pern I'd want the most, a firelizard would be it. What's better than having a small dragon on your shoulder?

That would be pretty sweet, but I do think being able to ride one the size of a small airliner would be pretty freakin' awesome.

The way you draw Pernese dragons has always been and will probably always be my favorite way of seeing them drawn.
Absolutely lovely <3

ZOMG I can't believe you have done another Pern dragon; FINALLY! I love your style of how you depict the big beasties, and therefore I go all spastic when I see one in my message box.
And as always your subtle yet mesmerizing attention to detail has paid off. I adore how he looks so smug and almost showing off, like he's telling some Greens "Oh yeah ladies, you like these here wings?" X)
Can't wait to see more, and I hope your restorations and such will go more smoothly from here on out. :)

Are you kidding me, Kaiz'? Your artwork should be placed right next to Da Vinci's gallery in my opinion.

And in case you couldn't tell, you are most very welcome, and again keep up the great work! :)

Blues are fun! I enjoy the browns too, for some reason.

And yet they get so little love... *sads*

Yeah. One of my own RP characters I changed from riding bronze to brown, because his dragon just seemed to suit brown so much more and I love him dearly like that. Love me the middle-boys, though the bronzers do have their fun points.
