B+R Dragon by Arkaios B+R Dragon by Arkaios
Full view, as usual.

Just a random black and red dragon. I might end up turning him into a character, but then again I dont really stick to the whole character thing very well, so we'll see what happens!

WIP shots can be seen on my Tumblr: [link]

Enjoy!

;n; thank you!
It's funny that you say that because I actually used to draw canines / felines all the time, and your artwork makes me want to do that again, haha!

haha! well, maybe we should both try!
i'd suggest we do a trade, if you're interested, but i can't commit to that until i have more of my commissions and stuff done.

Definitely!
You're reading my mind! haha. I've actually been looking to do a trade with someone without a lot of stress on when the trade would get finished and what not. I also love your artwork and would definitely be interested! If you're still looking to do one after you scratch some stuff off of your to-do list, feel free to hit me up! I'm pretty chill with trades, so you don't have to worry about me being constantly like "OMGWHEREISIT" >:C haha. Just as long as it doesn't take like, years or something, lol.

Fantastic colors, anatomy and shading...I just love it! This work looks like...a prefect one. I just can't find any mistakes here. It's so...clear. You just know what to do, when it's time for drawing. : D
These legs are perfect. Both in anatomy and shading. I can't stop looking at them! And the neck is as good as them. It's just...awesome. Great job!

Ow wow, pretty! I especially dig his front paws and how the fleshy bits on the end of his tail turned out--I see so many people sticking these big clunky things to the end of their dragon's tails without making them look realistically attached/balanced, but you did a wonderful job of making it feel like a real bit of anatomy. Great job! :D

I really love the way his markings flow so well throughout the entire length of his body. ;u;
Like they're not just slapped on or anything, they just look so fluid and neat!

And the colours on those spikes too, just- All the colour transitions!
And your dragon anatomy is just always so gorgeous, I can't stop looking at those arms and legs and the shape of the neck and head and how you used both lines and shading to define the underlying muscle and body shape.

Gorgeous work, as usual! :heart:
