What a great, heavy head! I like the colours, they are so bright and just beautifull. :-)

Why thank you ThunderboltFire.
Out of curiosity did you mean heavy in the "depicts weight"
sense of the word or the "dude" sense? =p

I meant that build of this head looks hefty, like T-rex's, which fact doesn't mean he's ugly ;-)
Sorry for my english it isn't very well... ^^;

I didn't read anything bad into your words just there was more than one good meaning.
Thanks for explaining.

No worries. :)

You couldn't resist could you! :P
You're on a role CR! :D

Nice colours! What made you go with red?

Needles to say.... Love it! :love:

Nope I couldn't, you were right, this one was worth the time to keep going with.

Shape of the head. The different colors of dragon have different characteristics
(depending on what mythos you are going off) and Red Dragon seemed closest.

I have been on a pretty good roll lately.
Needless perhaps but say it anyway. :D

Ofcourse I'm right!. I'm always right... unless I'm not.. in that case you're right :P

Makes sense...
I had a silly go at a Frost Dragon.. but I don't know if it meets the characteristics though...
I just think my doodle is a Frosty *shrugs*

Keep rolling! :D

Or we're both right... whenever you agree with me that is. :D

*peeks in DD's scrapbook but finds no frosty dragons*

Or whenever you agree with me, hmm? :D

I didn't put it in the scrapbook :P
It's right here.. with the other pen doodles: [link]

Well if I'm agreeing with you then you're bound to be right then as well. :D

*looks worried* You're taking your time to peek, dear...
Have you been frozen by the Frost Dragon? :o
Reply
:iconchristopherrobinartz:
Sometimes peeking is more fun. ;)

As for characteristics, it's really wide open to interpretation but many of the
White/Frost dragons I've seen have a large fin on their skull notably absent in yours.

Googling it I found this [link] If you go through the various images and then look at mine you'll see more similarities to the Red archetype.
Reds are generally considered the fire breathers and have the two long horns and while you can mix it up a lot if you want
to be recognizable as a red you should incorporate some of their general traits...
or just color it red and say its a Red Dragon. =p
