Azeth the Dracyre by drakhenliche Azeth the Dracyre by drakhenliche

(lazily x posting, sorry!)

Well hi. You might remember me. Or not.  If you've forgotten, here's a reminder that I like to draw dragons.  I've been away for a while since moving house and still am not 'back' yet. But today I have gotten my hands on a pc and scanner for a few hours so here's one of the things I've been working on whilst sans-computer.

Azeth. I haven't drawn him in a very long time. And didn't have his original design to hand as a reference whilst drawing this so he varies a bit here.  His fangs tuck back like a snake's and are only usually out for a strike or threat display. I assume he's just posing for the picture here as he's terribly vain.

He is a dracyre - a vampiric dragon - a rare and unpleasant breed of creature.  Early in the Daemonslayers 'saga' Blackjack and Shade have to turf him our of Black's territory where he has taken up residence. No one likes a squatter.

Soooo many dots. argh!!! Took a week and wore my 003 multiliner SP down to a nub on this! If you want to see the progress images, such as they are, see here: www.facebook.com/NecroDragonAr…

Thank you kindly! :)   I didn't have a computer when I was drawing this so I had little better to do than put lots of time and effort in so I'm delighted you think so :)

Thanks!  Am sort of back.  At least I'm hoping not to go vanishing for any long periods of time again anyway.

Thanks - was hoping to convey his menace.  He's not particularly huge as the dragons of his world go, but he is just as dangerous.

Yeh i can see that sinister signal he's got in his face, but it's mean, not like a 'up-himself' look c:

I feel that the raised whiskers give him an extra maliciousness c;

heh, well I was short a computer at the time so I didn't have a whole lot else to do with my evenings but to focus on so many teeny tiny dots.  Got a couple more stippled works to upload.
