.Silver Dragon. by Hawky515 .Silver Dragon. by Hawky515
He is Silver, not really b&w, except... it's kinda hard to show that.

These were done with my x-mas present color pencils *clings on to them* I never knew there were so many shades of gray! There's like... 15 or something! Woooaaaahhh.... XD Anyway

This is supposed to be a concept drawing of the silver dragon in my story. (Still nameless, btw.) Used a lot of reference where possible, mainly from movie dragons and the discovery channel (they were having a show on raptors :D) to try to make this guy as realistic as possible. I have my own problems with his anatomy, but you guys may like him.

Prismacolor color pencils

I like it. You don't see that kind of dignity in many dragons. It almost looks like a Draco (sean connery! :P)style from Dragonheart. If you haven't seen it, i have two things to say: 1: wow. even more kudo's to you! and 2: you must see Dragonheart! :P

It is nice to see a writer who has an amazing artistic talent. You have a fortunate combination of gifts, I would love to see your writing some time if you would permit it.
Please be sure to make it just a concept, not an actually piece of your novel, as I wish not to endanger your copyright. The internet is a dangerous place for people with original ideas.

Aupheling Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2010
As mighty and powerful as dragons are, this one seems to have a gentle soul.
His eyes tell many tales (no pun intended). =)
He is stunning.

I was doing research on dragon anatomy, cause I'm trying to draw a certain dragon from a dream last night and thus I am creating a story, and I stumbled upon your dragon drawing which is absolutely adorable. :heart:
By the way, dinosaurs are AWESOME. :D

XHarpieX Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2009
very beautiful work^^
Anatomy and detail really make this image a good one.
The eye really pops out of the page, seeing it adds that little splash of color in the midst of what really is a black-and-white sketch.

OH MY GOD!!! people at my school say im good at drawing dragons but that is just awesome and fantastic and ... well i think you get the point. :D
silverwolf81 Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
He looks wonderful! I cant think of a way he could look any better, the shading (as well as the subject matter) is superb.

His eyes look so kind, makes me want to just want take him home! His food bill would probably kill me though... >.<

I absolutely LOVE the shading, the softness just looks amazing <D! I particularly like how you shaded the face generally for the nose and eye areas, very well done!
Zakx08 Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2008
Wow its awesome!
sabotagedninja Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
To the looks of it, you can handle pencils very well. There is hardly any line that isn't pressed too hard. When I try that, I end up ruining it by always pressing too hard!
I really like his design, although there are two things that could use some change; I think the back of his head is a little too flat or bend down. And his snout could maybe use a little more details, because of the contrast to the scales.
For the rest, very well done! fav

I love the pleasant look to his face. Tired of all these 'fearsome! RAWR!' dragons... this one looks like he'd easily be your best friend. Reminds me, in a way, of some of the young horses I work with, by the look to his face.

I had to explain greys to someone the other day... I was naming colors of pencils I had and said "cool grey 70%" and they were like "huh??" hehe... I take for granted people aren't familiar with that idea since I grew up with my dad's Berol Prismacolors
TempersWings Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2008
he's really cute, if you can't find a name for him go to a baby name website and look around thst's how I found all the names for my characters
CorinneAI Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2008
Love it! I would have done the eyes a different color...but that's just me :P I have a dragon with it's own unique structure, who cares about the laws of anatomy.
