matriarchal in her thoughtful repose, she possesses an ancient grandeur, potentially lethal depth, dragonation..
her nostril is gorgeous behind the beak, i'm thinking of the humidity & odor of her scaled breath roar.her lips are amazing and so well scaled ,tucked as they are in her massive jawline. your work on her scales & body is tremendous & somehow enhances whatever story about her the viewer might spin or dream. her in the remote sky-spun aerie of her craggy nest.
love the damage/pockmarks and veins in her wings, and the wing-claws like a bat, and her tail idly moving behind her. like she has all the time in the world and can glory in that...
the riblet dagger scales along her sides give her more strength & depth and you have revealed just enough of her musculature to show her lithe power and resilience.
dragons surely need resilience in their arsenal.
her eye shows an evaluatory, insightful & protective mind. intelligence of a big lizard in her rightful realm under a cascade of deep stars. beautiful work. again.
Hi Marc! Wanted to let you know that I've put this incredible dragon on my new 'The Magic of Art' feature on my front page-- I love the perspective, the detail as always is wonderful. Hope your day is going fine!
