WYVERN by AngelusNoir WYVERN by AngelusNoir
I did this especially for all my dragon-loving friends, who've complained I haven't done a beastie in ages...so here's a heraldic Wyvern for you [like basilisks, only two legs.....!]
The quote reads,...Mens regnum bona possidet - An honest heart is a kingdom in itself. (Seneca)...I did toy with:....Antiquis temporibus, nati tibi similes in rupibus ventosissimis exponebantur ad necem - In the good old days, children like you were left to perish on windswept crags!!!
Or:.....Anulos qui animum ostendunt omnes gestemus! - Let's all wear mood rings!....but....NO!!!

[Pencil, background layer in Photoshop]

*And a special thankyou to *Vader-San, & his lovely dragons, who inspired me!!;-)

That is fantastic classical design!! The quote is perfect for it but I like the ones you almost put on too. I think my husband will be quoting them for the next couple weeks. :giggle:
It is so beautiful!!

Thats a really interesting (but good!!) style of drawing a dragon type creature, I admire people who draw dragons hehe, I find it extremely difficult. I like the shadow effect youve used here, and the way the eye looks metallic..very mystifying =D

:love:...you always leave such charming & interesting comments!:hug:...I used to draw dragons all the time, so this was a request to have a dragony-beastie!!!I did it, of course, on the train in my sketchbook, & when I was adding the background (to hide all the fingerprints,LOL!!) I added the shadow in Photoshop to give him a metallic look...glad you like him, babe!!

Beautiful...
You are very good at designing all the patterns, aren't you?
I'd love to draw something fancy like that but everytime I attempt to do so I always get stuck, struggle about the design..
Therefore you are so talented!!! xD
