head too small, that's a common drake not a war siege drake. They would have more strut and spikes to be more bold enough to be in war.. If you let this one out in the wild, it be dead within two days with that head compared to the most drakes I've seen. It be a misfit in the safari lands, lions will able to destroy it not even allowing to take defense for itself.. Its bite will not be worth fighting for but its scales will.. Sorry to disappoint you, its just I got a book of Dracopedia of my own, and I very much like dragons, especially drakes even though they are often mistaken as a small winged dragons, I know what type of a drake when I see one.

 Will inspired me that dragons could be living among us and our home has given them very little of space to hide in their environment...

You've mistitled it. *chuckle* It's a common drake. You did a really nice job though I was able to identify it instantly.

I like all the different (shades of) color(s) you used, all the brown and green, along with white. The picture is really neat and clear, definitely the first thing that captures my eye in your gallery. :D

Wow! This is superb! I can't find anything wrong with this at all. This was drawn very very well. You seem to have a knack for digital art.

I absolutely adore this piece of work. As a fan of dragons and reptiles, I may be a little biased, but you did a good job. The grass is particularly detailed, when a common mistake in all colored art--from colored pencils to digital art--is to make an object one color. The grass could have very well been a plain green, and that would have been an eyesore, but there are plenty of colors in it. I see varying shades of green, brown, and yellow. I also love the sheen on the dragon. He's very colorful, and his anatomy's great, aside from his front left leg maybe being a little too long and his eyes aren't quite aligned. But hey, everyone makes mistakes, and a mythical creature? It's hard to get anatomy correct on a creature that doesn't exist! I certainly have. My only criticism on this piece is that you used a very similar color scheme on the whole work. Had you made the dragon a warmer color in contrast to the cool tones of the background and maybe used a background instead of just white, he could have REALLY stood out, turning this work from "great" to "fantastic." Otherwise, really great work! I love it, and now I'll have to look through your other works to see what else I like.

I'm the one who made the forum post. Hope my feedback helps!

The thing that pops the most about this creature is, of course, the scales. You did a good job at achieving solid, tough, durable, and certainly armored scales, and the color variation and texture you've used to render them makes this a believable creature. Good job. :)
