As mentioned in a previous post, I will be featuring an illustration in my next fantasy book that depicts my own version of a dragon. The dragon in question will have two wings and two legs like the image above. However, the look of the head, neck, and tail will be different.
The face of the dragon will resemble this image, which will give it a beastly yet eerily intelligent look to it. I also like the goatee-shaped spike sprouted from the tip of its chin. Plus, the scaly lips reminds me of Draco from Dragonheart.
The dragon’s horns will resemble the image above along with the mane running down the back of its neck. I like the curvature of the horns and the mane will give the dragon a similar look to a horse’s mane. This will be fitting since my protagonist’s family is a family of dragon riders.
The dragon’s tail will resemble the image above, but the tip of the tail will be different.
The tip of the tail will resemble the image above, which will be similar in shape to the fluke of a dolphin or whale.
Overall, these images are like pieces to a puzzle that the illustrator will use to create the dragon illustration. They provide a rough and basic idea of what my dragon will look like.
