Dragon Lord by Ruth-Tay Dragon Lord by Ruth-Tay
Fancied trying a new coloring style out on this dragon. By working more with shapes than with lines.

This took me about 8 hours in Photoshop.

Haven't given this guy name yet, He's a mighty dragon.

If anybody comes up with a cool name for him, he''ll be called that

It means king highest. Due to it being a dragon 'lord' and the fact that dragons fly. c:

Haha, I love the face. It's damn close to human while differing enough to be uncanny. Especially on that traditional dragon body.

You could call him "Gewaltig Drachen" which is German for Enormous Dragon. Or just call him Gewaltig. German is a very powerful and strong language.

Nah, I dunno I'm dutch and the language is very similar to german. For me it just sounds a bit weird. It would have been "geweldige draak" in dutch Which means Awesome Dragon.

Yīg qingd, Mighty One in Traditional Chinese, Or you could call him Azuran, a name that combined Azure, his color, and run, the first thing you do when you see him.

"Yīg qingd, Mighty One"

That means "A mighty" in Chinese, not "Mighty one". :P

Arthric.
First name that came to mind when I saw this fella :)
But this is awesome and the coloring style is working well ;) But I'd also watch the neck it looks a bit skinny, but that could be simply cuz of the angle and position. But I really like this fella he is absolutely wonderful!
