This is a beautiful design for an aquatic dragon! 

The only portion of this design I find aesthetically questionable are the tentacle style horns on its head. I find them...unbalanced compared to the rest of the smoothness of the design. Personally I might have removed them or else added some form of a forehorn that would help the balance of his head. Of course then you get more drag... ;P

I can't wait to see more dragons from you! Outside the traditional designs for dragons are my absolute favorites! Especially ones that take 
them out of their standard elements (ie: underwater!) or when their designs take after birds or raptors instead of lizards!

(I must confess it very much reminds me of PacRim...If their kaiju were much nicer. And a great deal more refined!)

Also! I know it's a little off topic but have you seen the design for Smaug? Breath taking! And a very traditional take if you look at Tolkien's original artwork for the Hobbit. Did you know he was actually a literary scholar of the Beowulf poem? And the section about Smaug is based entirely off the section of the poem about Beowulf's Bane (the dragon was never given a true name.) right down to the stolen cup starting it all!

You should read the article they have about it. There much better at explaining it then me!

The character isn't mine :) So really I couldn't really alter the dragon.

I actually found the original AFTER posting this comment. I figured out it was a gift but....

oh really, sometimes I'm just a dunce. >.<

Your art is so gorgeous! I'm actually trying to use some of it as inspiration for some mosaics I'm trying to set up. (If I ever manage to get it finished I'll post it and message you ;)

Hey, so sorry it's taken me so long to comment on this, gah!!
I just want to say though, I FREAKING LOVE THIS.

She looks so elegant and calm/peaceful! I really love the pose and setting as well, and as usual, such lovely cell shading!! I love that you got her stocky anatomy just right, also! :squee:

Great work, and thanks so much!! :love:
