First try at a dragon with body (Feedback Please!) by Ethenite2 First try at a dragon with body (Feedback Please!) by Ethenite2
Well this is just a sketch but I tried doing a dragon with a body. I stopped because I felt that I was about to screw it up. 
The hard thing is I was using my art book I got and the thing is is that the artist doesn't use many dragons with the type of chest I have in this picture. A lot of the dragons in that book are soft bellied ones, and I don't like soft bellies that much.

Otherwise I'm going to have to try again and really get to know the anatomy on a dragon. Please leave your feed back and anything else that might help!

Good! But can I give another tip or two..?

Add a mass of flesh below each horn- like this:encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/ima… (yes, I know it's a tusk, but its the same idea- mass of skin attached to the horn)
it makes the horn look stronger and sturdier- it won't break off easily!

and another slight thingy- that wing shoulder is a little tiny... remember, unless it's a cartoony dragon, tiny wings look strange. Make that shoulder big!

also optional- a flap of wing membrane in-between the shoulder and elbow- not needed, but makes the wing look bigger

and the wing size itself can be skewed, believe me. Bird wings and bat wings are small, cause the creature itself is tiny and light. heavy, 1 ton plus animals like dragons would need HUGE wings to lift it off the ground... but thats real life- as long as the wing looks sturdy, so will the flight.

this is a good example of size of body versus wing size. the Pteronodon had bigger wings, and the bigger, heavier quetzalcoatalus had BIGGER wings in proportional to its body size to keep it aloft

TL;DR, Great Job!, make the wing a little sturdier

Yeah i see what you mean for the wings. with the horns I was trying to go for an angle kind of like the red dragon (Ignitus) in this picture

Thanks! Im still trying to get the body down. Making sure proportions are right. Also trying to master drawing claws both front and back. Those are really hard.
