The Green Dragon by darkwolfhowling The Green Dragon by darkwolfhowling
The sign for the pub named after the dragon. With the dragon (still a drakka, so no wings yet) conveniently sitting atop it. Wistala, from E. E. Knight's Age of Fire series.

I must stop drawing fanart...

I like how you drew her thick-bodied and slightly "stumpy" the way she is described in the books.
Most depictions I've seen are too thin, including those of the book covers IMO.
Wistala was the largest and strongest of her surviving siblings, though not the most elegant of the dragonelles.
I'm interested to see how you would draw her as an adult.

Probably the best portrayal of her I've seen. Though I wish you had don the griff. I have trouble visualizing them.

So do I, that's why I didn't do it this time. I plan to reread the books at some point this summer though, so maybe I'll find some inspiration.

I just started reading the series sort of(listening to it on Audible), and I just happen to have started the Avenger this morning. Absolutely adorable!!!! I just got past the point where she sees she is the bulkier of the two sisters, and how Jizara comments how much sleeker her tail is. Your drawing perfectly depicts a rotund dragon hatchling. Nice work.

The first three are the best. The series just goes downhill from there, unfortunately.

I agree. The ending of the series (Dragon Fate) was really short and I would have liked it prolonged. Many grammatical, name and spelling errors in the last few books.

I think I will have to draw that at some point, but other things must come first, ie. the original dragons that are currently sulking in my brain
