A WIP for the mornin’!
So, uh, I really love Ridgebacks.
They’re my favourite Flight Rising dragon species.
Erebos and his lover, Nyx. They’re my two gorgeous circuit-gened ridgies. Erebos is highly protective of his mate, and Nyx can’t help but show some vanity to mingle with his behavior.
Can’t wait to start painting these two! :>
This is special to me. A concept design that has been a long time coming, for a really awesome (and patient) friend. They gave me some loose ideas, critters, colors, and general inspiration then let me do my thing. There have been many differing passes, which I will share later for completions sake.
The creature is very loosely inspired by the dragon on the Ishtar gate. The snake is the actual body while the rest is manifested out of its own essence. I feel it would have a vaguely leonine body when quadruped, but stay simple, only forming things as needed.
Black scales, gold filigree, burning soul.
Much better sketch of the lady Iskierka. I’ll admit if I had the chance to captain a dragon, it would be a Kazilik.
Calcatrix sketches. Took a bunch of bird prompts on twitter and working through them as practice for this high-fluff fantasy setting.
Eurasian Magpie (barter/trader), Gannet (delivery service/messenger), Generic hawk, Crow (Fortunes, Luck charms).
