Dragon, Faerie by butterfrog Dragon, Faerie by butterfrog
A faerie dragon on a old edition approach. I tried to make this fellow fey-like ande very nimble. Also a retractible tail that he uses to feed :D

This is a commission for Mr Patrick Monkey Curtin!

I hope you like it!

I want a faerie dragon of my own... :3

He would make an awesome tattoo though. Great job, this is easily one of my favorite things on this site.

This is very lovely and very unique. Very nice curves going on here with the tongue and the tail! And I like how the wings are transparent.

Thanks! I thought of going on insect-like wing but decided for a more "unique" approach :D

It's better than I could've imagined Hugo. Truly the best drawing of the monster EVER (in my opinion). If I wasn't broke I would so have you do some more work for me *grin*

Well, it is for sure a HUGE change. Now, keep in mind, they like color work. The more painter style. But I love this stuff you are doing.

butterfrog Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah I hope I can get to practice the painter style more. I have done only one piece for Wolfgang Baur (not published yet) and I was pretty satistfied with it. Not a BenWooten or Ralph Horsley piece but fair enough to compete with many paizo artists :D
