Romanian Three-Tail Study - Cranial, Cervical Dtl by LeccathuFurvicael Romanian Three-Tail Study - Cranial, Cervical Dtl by LeccathuFurvicael
Probably my favorite out of all four. Definitely encapsulates that sense of reality that I very much enjoy.

-----------------------------------------------

This is one of four anatomical studies I created for my Senior Art Exhibition, "Think∴Make". These studies are of the dragon species I have developed, the Romanian Three-Tail, and in this case, a female. A general overview of the head and neck, displaying a cutaway of one of the distinctive neck plates, and cutaway of the cheek and neck integument, fat, etc. Specific focus on the musculature, as well as dentition, neck plate musculature/composition, parotid gland (directly behind the ear), and external jugular vein.

For the species I've developed, I have looked into human, theropod dinosaur, avian, chiropteran (bat), large felid, and reptilian anatomy, and have applied a generic knowledge of biomechanics and physiology to map out potential ways for this animal to actually exist somewhere, if not on planet Earth. This creature has a lot of significance to me, and the strides I take to map out a feasible reality for said creature can be seen as an attempt to satiate my mind's desires for that very reality. Art, and science - who says they can't coexist?!?

All four drawings can be seen arranged together here: [link]

11 x 14 inches, .05 2B mechanical pencil on Bristol Vellum paper.
Time: ~8-10 hours

Awesome shading! A week ago I also did a traditional piece with colored pencils but the scan was horrible so I had to take a photo, but i still didn't really capture the drawing well. So i'm a little demotivated by not having a good scanner.. but this inspires me again! :3

Ugh, scanners can be such a pain sometimes - I feel you there! I hope you can get something to work for you soon, and thanks for the comment. : )
