You know it's funny, I finally get around to seeing your own page and what's the first thing I notice? A rather chucky, well-rounded and flightless picture of your namesake as the featured deviation. Mind you, you ARE a talented artist, but you want to talk about "giant cow with massive flank"? Your dragon , especially without wings, looks EXACTLY like that.
(Sorry for the late response.)
I'm still waiting for you to send an apology to Rah. She's still a far more advanced artist than you anyday, and you could stand to learn things from her, rather than criticize. Me? No, I don't draw, I admit I have no talent in that department. But I do know good art when I see it.

Although I usually don't like dragons with feathers, this was very, very beautiful. My first thought when I saw her was "Vervada" (Saphiras mother, for those who don't know). Very well done.

Oh my goodness, Silkara looks absolutely beautiful! I actually goosebumped when I saw her wingspan - those feathers are GORGEOUS!

Excellent work as always, Rah...your dA gallery is always a treat to browse! ^^

Ah. /Base/ of the tail. I missed that. Dunno what I was thinking. So sorry. I wasn't insulting or anything. Just a question. Stupid on my part. It is a beautiful piece of work, to be sure. x3

love the feathers :D

Hm hm.. Beautiful. Only, the sheet says that the spines start big at the head and gradually get smaller until the base of the tail. I only see the spines going to the middle of her back in the side view. There are none going down to her tail. Are they like tiny little spur thorns?

No, the spines go only to the base of the tail (i.e. the top/back of the hips) rather than the tip of the tail. They eventually become really tiny, like little bumps, but because the way the wings are folded (or unfolded) they disappear behind the feathers in the side views. If you look hard you can see how they are in the view from above.

I love violet dragons... my char was violet too in the beginning. Beautiful anatomy, lovely and dragonlike!
