Thanks! I'm glad that you like this idea! I'm trying to make a compendium of all dragonological knowledge; complete dragons classification will be the main point of encyclopedic part. In September you will see next page.

A question: how did you do that with the skeleton? because I like to creat a skeleton to this species: deviant-art-angles.deviantart.…

When I work with some anatomical drawings I always make use of anatomical drawings of some real animals: mostly crocodiles and saurischian dinosaurs. At firs I try to find how each part of skeleton work; legs, paws, and of course, the most difficult element of dragon's anatomy, a double shoulder. Then I looking for some examples from real animals anatomy, similar to dragon's - paws from dog, head from crocodile, pelvis from some theropoda dinosaur, just like some elements of chest and shoulder structures. Of course I change them to fitt them to my dragon anatomy but if you look carefuly you will see that the baby Night Fury skull looks very similar to crocodile's skull. And I still remember that on this bones will be some muscles, joints have to be correctly movable and inside skeleton must be enough place for internal organs. So, it's very dificult thing to draw a good dragon's skeletom; I'm still working on first, realistic, Night Fury's skeleton scheme and it will take a few months to finish it. It's a great challenge; as for you as for me. Inskarlarians dragons are really beautiful creatures; it is a wonderful idea to "create" their's skeleton. I hope you will make it as beautiful as your other arts about dragons. If I can help you in this, just ask! I hope that I have already helped you somehow.

Outstanding! It's about time someone is doing something like this! I'd love to help in any way I could, and I seriously mean that. I have an OC (night fury, female) with a scientific description already set up for it, and I really love science, so I could help you with that! Not to mention I love doing anatomical drawings like you mentioned above. Please, let me help you with this, I wanna do it so bad! 

Just let me know what you need, and I'll try my best to do it.

I'm so glad that you like my project. And I want to thank you for all kinds of help. being honest, I need some help - I'm looking for information about dragons from all world; classic myths, books about dragons, dragons form comics and movies, not only form HTTYD universe. I see that you are from USA so you can look for some info about dragons in native Americans myths and of course from present fiction. Could you? I would be very thankful for this help, cause at 4th page I want to show a full, complete dragons species Cladistic and Linnaean classification. And I have seen your drawings. They are quite good... especially hero drawings, Spider-man and Arrow. Hmm. You know: lets try to surprise me and tries to make some classic NF drawing which will "persuade" me that you have to be a contributor of Dragonera project. You have talent so I'm sure that it's an only a formality. Don't hurry. i'm patient - and next Dragonera page will be set in September, so...

Once more, I want to thank you for your help.

Awesome! Thanks! You came to the right guy, I just happen to love history and legends! The Piasa, a giant bird-like dragon, was said to feed off of the peoples of many tribes. It was harmless once upon a time, but became accustomed to the taste of human blood after feeding on the corpses left by war with the white man. No one could run away from it, no arrow could find its heart. One day, Cheif Ouatoga of the Cahokia tribe declared war on the bird after his tribe was raided. He took the best of his braves and traveled by night to the cave of the Piasa, and stationed his men outside the mouth. Chief Ouatoga, torch in his hand, entered the cave and aroused the monster. Angering Piasa with his fire, Ouatoga ran, luring the beast out of the cave, and as the creature pounced on him, the cheif's warriors killed the dragon with poisoned arrows. From then on, the Piasa bird symbol marked the territory of the Cahokia tribe, and few men dared to violate it...

Of course, origins of this legend are still being debated, but it's pretty cool, right?

Today I'll get to work on that sketch, and I won't let you down! :D
DanGref Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thank you very much! This is exactly what I want to! La la la la It would be awesome if you will look for such a stories, not only from native American myths but also from present folklore - like Thunder Bird or Moth-man, which in fact "could" be a some kind of dragons ( ;P let's say...). Piasa is a great example of probably dragon-creature. using your description I have found a lot of texts about it! Believe me: you have helped me a lot. Thank you one more time!

I have seen the firs of your sketches; it's very interesting and promising... I will wait for next one. Don't hurry; quality before quantity.
