Description

Here's one of those commissions, this time for Ashieepants of their character named. . . . . I don't know his name! I'm sorry. But he is very beautiful and he was a lot of fun to draw, even if most of my time was spent drawing feathers.

For such a long character you did a fantastic job with the composition! Personally, I love trying to figure out how the wings go when the character is all twisted around, and this one's got so many wings to play with XD. I'm envious of your ability to depict knuckles with so few lines. I'm still struggling, so I tend to leave them off for now, but I hope I can get as good as you.

I know you'll get even better than me! I can do knuckles from some angles, but other angles really kick my ass XDD Thank you again for all the wonderful comments you always leave me c:

Welcome! I wish I could comment more, but work only leaves me with so much time/brainpower XC. But rest assured that every new submission of yours results in an internal squeeeeeee :D. I've still got a ways to go on those knuckles xD. I'm still fighting the urge to reuse my memorized gimmicks as opposed to truly understanding the form and how things look in space.

I mostly use my memorized gimmicks xD I should actually study knuckles.

Well, that is quite a number of feathered wings on a dragon, most I have ever seen. I think this is the most I have seen, in the past was a six inter-layered wing set, with a small set near the end of he tail, but that was all. This instead is one of those long serpent like dragons and it has gradual smaller feathered wind as it goes further back. Now my guess is that this is for agility and easier flight capabilities, especially when soaring all those wings; this would act as like a tail on a kite my guess. In that I do say very nice work done line art and simple background. :) :thumbsup:

I think the layout of the wings being spread down the body is also very interesting, especially when you put it how you did. Although I believe it would require very complicated internal anatomy if all the wings were to be fully functional xD

Well I have heard son believe that dragons may have more than one heart especially for these more serpentine ones as you like have here to help with their circulatory system, similar to how the on sky scrapers, a water pump needs to be put on like eves tenth floor, just so it can be pumped up another ten, till the top of he building (it really is a gravity to water pressure issue.)

Shinerai Featured By Owner May 26, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That is a very interesting idea, about the hearts. I think it would indeed be useful to have more than one. The blood could also move around like lymph does. Lymph moves through the mody in vessels as well, but since there is no heart to pump it, the movements of your muscles push it through the veins. That's why people who dont partake in much physical activity have bad immune systems :P

Though I was mostly talking about the bones and muscles. Wings need a very specific bone structure.

Did you ever watch the Animal Planet mini series, Dragons, a Fantasy Made Real It talks about how dragons might have existed in the real world, like hollow bones structures like birds, hydrogen bladders to also lighten the load and to also allow their fire breath to exist, and so on. The lymph vessels idea I like that too.

Shinerai Featured By Owner May 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well I'm talking about more rudimentary things. No matter how light you get the load, it still isn't going to fly if it doesn't have a proper skeletal and muscle structure. Each set of wings would need one of these [link] The Keel of the sternum, the coracoid, and the furcula are all very important bones to wing function. For this dragon to have 16 wings, all 8 sets would need a pectoral girdle like this.

Which probably isn't impossible, I was just mentioning before that it would be complicated.

Well that is the beauty of art, it does not have to make sense in the real world. Though you are right on the bone structure like on birds though.

Wow, this is very imaginative. At first glance, I thought it was a sedge of cranes but after a moment, realized my mistake and saw the dragon underneath the wings. Very well done! Will have to add this to my favorites. :3

HNHGNHGNH.

All those wings and the different poses you used for each set are delicious. I also really like the way you made the noodley body foreshortened like that; it really makes it seem like the dragon's going at your face. :'D
The simplicity of it is beautiful as well... simple black lines and a pretty orange outline. Yes. <3
