It has been a while since I truly invested time in a work and I really wanted to see how much I have improved over the last year. For that and the fact that I will forever love dragons I drew the King of Dragons. I wanted him to be different from the standard drsgons seen so I gave him bull horns that twist forward as well as played with scales and texture. I see this beast being massive with harden scales coating the top of his head, similar to snakes, with larger scales lining the bottom jaw to show power. The scales/skin in between was a cross between that of a crocodile and eleaphant as I wanted it to seem tough yet flexible as this is how it speaks personifies. The main trouble I had with it what making it feel ancient yet not feeble. I think I came close to that goal, but I think drawing out the whole head to see is whole maw and strong jaw. Both of which I cropped out.
Over all I am rather satisfied with the result however as much as I love working of pictures of this scale I wont be to doing to many more like this a for a while as they are very time consuming
