This thread is for me to post my art, mainly drawings.
So you guys just sit back and enjoy, and please feel free to make a comment. My first piece is something I usually do to warm-up.

I have started on it, I finished his body once, hated it and started over, and right now I'm having a hard time getting around to it; work for 30 minutes, draw a line, rinse & repeat.

The flames magically propel you through the air.

Without reading his description, I think he might have hoped for a western dragon with reptile smile and huge wings and all.
But what do I know.

The Western dragon design is well known, and being a beast more than a guardian, that is the classic example of a monster throughout medieval time.
The Eastern dragon is more of a guardian, associated with water and sky instead of fire like the Western is.
Where the eastern is there to protect the water and the people who brings offerings, the Western took what it wanted and demanded more.

Depending on how you are brought up, either one of them can be the common example you have in mind, or if you are nerdy enough, you will ask "which kind" like I do.

Which kind of Dragon do you like Cenere?

(Also, are Drakes considered dragon or of dragon descent?)

Well,when you only say you want a dragon with it's tail on fire that gives the artist a very broad range to deal with.
I'm taking all these requests to gain experience and for nothing really else, making the customer happy is a plus.

So for now on, if you want something done very specifically then write me a description, otherwise I'm just gonna try and do something unique that makes me happy and hopefully makes everyone else happy.

Descent. Drakes along with lindworms are not true dragons. They are in family with the Western dragon, though the lindworms might be some hybrid of the East and West.

Which kind of Dragon do you like Cenere?

The Western, but not the typical beast image, rather than an intelligent being that is misunderstood by humans. If you lived for thousands of years, would you waste your time with petty humans anyway?
The eastern dragons are rather cool too, though. The emperor's dragon especially.

The weakness of all artists: To make both the customer and himself happy with the result.
Often, instead of assuming the customer knows what he wants, you might need to ask more in depth, especially if the request is vague like that.

Linnworm... Really big bad snake, often with tiny arms and no legs.

And I who only know Smaug. On the other hand I can give a long explanation of why dragons can be alive in the modern world, and not only in fiction. Along with descriptions of different mythological beings...

I call dragons wyrms, also don't forget about Wyverns.

Wyrm is the old ones.
Also: Drake: Small useless wings, if I remember correctly, and small arms too.
Linnworm: Snakey with little arms.
Wyvern: One set of wings, one set of legs.
There is a type seen in old paintings and the like that has arms and wings too...
Western: two pairs of legs/arms+legs, one pair of wings.
Eastern: Snakelike body, often a lot of atributed from other animals like antlers. Short arms and legs. Either three or four fingers.

And I think I have been nerdy enough now > <
