Dragon Anatomy - Skeleton by TheBlack-Arrow Dragon Anatomy - Skeleton by TheBlack-Arrow
So I've finally finished the skeleton! Damn it took so long.
I will do the muscles some other time I'm just too tired now.

It wasn't really hard to do this, and I must thank =Altairess for that because she makes such a great company ;D

I hope you will find this useful! I don't really see the reason to put the names of the bones but if you'd like I will.

You are free to use this as a reference!
That's why I drew it duuh

I was curious, if it's free to use as a reference, am I allowed to edit it to fit the design I want? o3o

Oh,I mean trying real hard to draw correct anatomy. Like, if this were a real creature, would it function?

:icontheblack-arrow:
TheBlack-Arrow Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, that!
Well what I usually do is sketch out the creature and think of it's functions as I refine it. It has become my habit lately but I probably wont do any fancy reference sheets. Maybe just some tips in the description.

Fantasy X-rays, that must be hard. It's seem so natural, I wish that dragons would exist.

It was a bit hard to figure out how the wing should connect to the body but the rest was fairly easy, just took reference from some birds and reptilians.
And yeah, I wish they existed too D:

AlexHei Featured By Owner May 7, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Do you think you can do it same with the dragons organs?
It's not a request! But it would or could be nice to have it beside this.
And then I forgot to add a Love Face.

I was thinking of doing that after I draw in the muscles.

If you get trouble about, how the fire organ should look like, I have an idea.
But I guess you know how to make a fireproof organ to the dragon.
I'am looking forward to see it and the muscle image too:-)

I went through several on deviantArt to see how they handled the wing connecting to the body but I didn't stick to any them. I mostly used bird and reptilian references.
