wow~
This is neat~ ^___^
What a cool looking dragon, the earthy colour palate is really nice and the extra little details of the markings, the face, ribs, claws, arms and even the back legs are done so well it really does just pull the look of it all together something grand.
And accentuating the muscles and skin in certain places really gives it that powerful aura.
This is a great dragon :heart:
I mean, even the uneven teeth give it that extra little menacing edge.
I'm definitely glad I got to see this drawing, it really is a great piece of work.

Wonderful design. Maybe a teeny bit too over the top for my taste, but who the hell am I to judge.

And hey, it's fantasy, why have limitations in the first place.

Bottom line: Awesome job.
