So now I've figured out that I can make Comments! I LOVE the delicate way you have drawn and painted the dragon's head and neck. It's graceful as well as beautiful!

I typically don't really like beaks on dragons, but this guy here is just awesome. I really like the overall design of the head and, especially, how lively the eye is.

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.

Dragons are so cool because they can manifest in so many ways! I will admit to being partial to beaked dragons, however I adore all of the different dragon types I see here on DA and elsewhere. :)

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.
