Why are people so concerned about this dragon? The concept behind the picture is that the knight is impaled by the spikes. Draggy will be fine....

NO! not the dragon, I don't care what happens to the human, but dragons r awesome and you shouldn't kill em. Well set aside that he's killing the dragon, awesome pic. I would never in a million years be able to draw like that, even with five more years of childhood to spend D:

it's very important when sneak-attacking a dragon that your first swing doesn't miss...

because you won't get a second one

WOw! This is incredible...not only with the nifty way you framed the image (making it look almost 3D)... but with the details you put on the dragon's scales and the man's face! Beautiful!!!

Is that guy tripping? He has a shocked look on his face while looking down it seems. If that's the case, is he friends with the Dragon?

spiked armor. Jeez, that gonna hurt :XD:

I think I never saw someone doing a dragon's wing with this texture, it got so soft and stronger than relugar dragon wings. With the iron spiked scales that must be heavy it made a great combination, showing how an armored dragon would be.

If the man's torso was almost directly turned to the dragon's spikes, it would be emphasizing the idea that this is an dangerous defense, how it would seem that he's going to be directly hit by these sharp scales. But his position and what may happen depends on the objective of the picture :thumbsup::meow:

He is using the sword in a stabbing rather than a slashing motion. Both blade and grip are reversed in order to provide a more powerful thrust, as opposed to a slice.

I know it's a stabbing motion, perhaps the angle just makes it look strange to me.
