Yay, the joys of not having time to go through your inbox and hilarity of resulting absurdly late replies...
Anyway, back to the point:
Yeah, dealing with fantasy beings gives you quite a bit more freedom, but there is still much artistry involved in making them look right and consistent. Anyway, I've always adored your dragons, it dates back to your old yerf gallery, their sleek shapes seem better suited for flight than most others too.
it looks like a mix between eastern and western dragons- the main body is western, but the stag horns are from an eastern dragon. I like the beak, too- it gives him that touch of relation to birds! I do my homework
As someone who really loves dragons...This is just beautiful. I love the detail you've put into this and the color selection is great. I particularly like where you've blended the dark blue to brown on his/her ears.
