bluejay dragon by Shinerai bluejay dragon by Shinerai
Recently an acquaintance, ~BlueJay-Cat, commented on one of my works. Wow, thank you for the comment and compliments <3 It reminded me of way back in the day, when she wanted to commission me to create a dragon form for her character, Blue Jay. I did some concept doodles and started to line, but then backed out of the commission because I didn't feel I had the appropriate amount of talent to complete the task in a way that would satisfy everyone. I did draw an image of my conceptual dragon form, and give it to Blue. [link]

So upon reminiscing, I visited Blue's gallery and noticed her name character has a new design! A very cute and natural looking one --> [link] . For some reason, I couldn't resist the urge to revisit my old task of designing a dragon form for Blue! So here it is, I did this with my evening. Maybe 9 hours. Took a break from coloring a commission for *Draphilius. c:

I must state right here, Blue, I know you didn't know I was going to do this and you could possibly not even be interested anymore or already have a dragon form for your character. I am in no way forcing you to use this design, but I made it, here it is, and you can do anything you want with it if you so desire. In any form, it is a gift ♥

I can't take all the credit for the design, because 90% of the color and markings are taken from ~BlueJay-Cat's own character drawing. I just designed the dragon's body and transferred the markings cx Which was fun!

Bluejays are mean birds anyway, so mixing them with a dragon is awesome. xD

Very neat!(: You are very good at combining mythology creatures with real animals, and I love that! Keep it up, and maybe you should do a fish dragon or something! (: Your VERY great!

Thank you very much! A fish dragon would be super cool but I don't know if I could make one that is unique within all the fish dragons that already exist cx

You could make it like a pufferfish or something and add different horns and make the colors really connect to the backround of the sea that it thrives and hunts in (: Or maybe a moose dragon with large horns and hoofs with beautiful goldish brownish scales (: And Welsome (:
