A Boy and His Dragon by Kid-Apocalypse A Boy and His Dragon by Kid-Apocalypse
Commission for my favorite not-on-dA pencil artist to be given as a gift to my cousin Logan. He's the boy. :) The sword is based on the one he's getting for his twelfth birthday--in four years. ;p

Did it aaaaall today. The shield's design is my own, although I half-stole Young Link's clothes.

DO NOT MENTION THE DRAGON I HATE IT MORE THAN JEREMY. It was asked for, I drew it. I will break my stylus before I ever draw another.

Hee cute... It's hard to draw wings though, especially the bat/dragon-type wings, and still get the back right.

Thank you.... You're telling me. I half-arsed one of them, but no one complained.

Trust me, I know exactly how much trouble it is... I'm trying to figure out how to draw a person with that type of wings which emerge, not from shoulders, but from the middle of her back. I'm thinking she has a slightly longer-than-normal torso, but I'm not sure. She has to be short though.

In my experience, long torsos inevitably mess with the legs. ....wouldn't you just draw them the same, only lower? But from a purely physical look at anatomy, I'd say that you'd have to first find out where the bones could connect. ...the spine? Converging with the hip bone? :shrug: No idea.

.........:rofl: Hip wings.

I was thinking a kind of second set of shoulderblades, maybe a full second collarbone of sorts, set under the ribcage to support larger lungs and a second set of shoulder-type muscles.

I remember there's a type of dwarfism where the torso is average-sized while the legs and arms are about half as long as average. perhaps it would look something like that, only a second pair of arm/wings at midback. I'd have to pull out my heavy-duty eraser and one of my good pencils (or maybe two... wooden for the outline and mechanical for the details) and take a day drawing it.

Well, hey, if the wings were attached to the hips with a broad wingsail, the balance problem would be fixed, wouldn't it?

That sounds a little too complicated, but if you want to try it, more power to you. It would make clothing difficult, maybe a jerkin laced to the stomach and lowcut pants or skirt?

:thumbsup: Hope you do it. I think I'd give up halfway in. ^^;

It would look pretty funny, though.

...I was thinking like a halter, with a curtain of fabric sewn to the front and a strip down the back that connects at the bottom, and lowcut pants. This is a pretty modern era I'm writing. Plus, I'm pretty sure she makes her own clothes, and wears a long jacket in public.

Well, it'll probably take me two or three days to a week.

...That it would.

Bodice from Hot Topic then, if it's modern era. Heck, just go to Hot Topic and look at some of the stranger/more unique articles of clothing. ......wouldn't the jacket get in the way?

It'd take me longer, so I think I admire you right now. :D

Ooo! That ones definitely a Donatello!

I like the pose. The boy tries to be all noble and knight-ish but the bigger, badder dragoin just ruffles his hair and yea..i dont need to explain your drawing...

The backround actually is cool too. Some high rocks in a misty-blue scene, very nice!
