Mammalian Dragon by Risachantag Mammalian Dragon by Risachantag
After seeing a friend's gorgeous winged monkey picture at Swancon, it got me thinking about the idea of a more mammal -like dragon.

This one's a dragon/ghost bat hybrid, adept at catching and toasting crickets. I love the translucency of bat wings, the way they catch the light while being slightly see-through.

A WIP sketch is available on my facebook page: [link]

Time: 3-4 hours
Tools: Photoshop CS5, Wacom Graphire tablet

I've long loved the concept of mammalian dragons and have gone on to create various "species" of non-traditional-dragon-like creatures/races...though at the moment my main focus has been on my 'draegae'. Not a terribly original name but my original intent was to create words for dragons in fantasy lanauges in my writing and I came to simply eliminate the word dragon. :XD:

I love this concept and I think this is one of my favourite images of mamalian dragons I've seen. i love the translucence of the wings and ears. so cute. I wish they really existed so that I could have on. :D

Wow, strange. o.O

But awesome! XD

It makes me think of something different from a dragon though, like some other great flying beast, like a wyvern or something.
