Scarred One by drakhenliche Scarred One by drakhenliche
Unfortunately the scanner ate this, as often happens with my traditional work :( (and yes, I have tried fiddling with the settings but as they say you can't polish a turd).

There are exceptions, but on the whole Tymaeran dragons don't like each other. Sure they'll band together as a species against a common threat unless they see profit in it for themselves not to but usually dragons above a certain age avoid one another (below that age, young dragons often stay together for survival purposes). Unwanted encounters can end nasty but this one has evidently lived to tell the tale... I wonder whether the same can be said for the other guy?

I remember not If I comented on this B4, but in case I did not, I will do so now. What I find unick about this guy is the fact that he IS flawed. THat broken horn really tells a lot about the guy, and makes you wonder about his background more then what is written in the description. SUch little detaills and imperfections really add character, and I really like that... it makes him unick in some way.

The colores look nice as well, despite the problem you had with the scanner.

I have no real constructive ciritcism to make, keep going with your art, it's lovelly

Thanks! That's just what I was aiming for :) To me, it's the imperfections that add personality and make characters much more interesting. I was hoping the scars and broken horn would make it look much more like this guy has a story to tell than if he'd been perfect and intact.

"I wonder whether the same can be said for the other guy?"

I think the other guy was screwed from the get-go. One look at this guy and I don't think he'd be very merciful. ;)

This is true, very true. And I was considering them when I saw this guy. I'm fairly sure whatever gave him those scars is in his belly. Or was.

...Maybe it gave him indigestion, I dunno. Would explain the sour look he has on his face. XD
