First attempt at a Pernese dragon. I had Ramoth in mind. The queen of all dragons is my personal favorite.

Tried to go to bed, but I just couldn’t get Pern stuff out of my head…. I’ve been very unhappy with the anatomy of my “signature style” Pern dragons lately and I really want to focus on giving them some more believable, and more ALIEN physical characteristics. The forelimbs on the dragons I’ve drawn in the past are just… too human and it has always irked me. I mean… I guess it looks nice? But why would a creature that was born of alien life have people hands? Bleck…
And the wings… oh so much the wings… again, looking too much like hands. And why the heck would there need to be claws on the wingtips? It makes no sense… on the hooky-thumby thing, yeah, but tips? Pleh.
I want to try and shift the eyes up and onto the top of the head more, too, since I recall that trait actually being described in the books (though I wouldn’t be able to tell you which one at this point, shame on me).
I could go on and on… maybe I will have time to do more detailed paintings of my ideas. I have these interesting concepts for the harnesses that the dragonriders use, but I just can’t get them down on “paper” yet. I’ll have to incubate them a bit more in my brain I guess.
I hope you all don’t mind my messy late-night scribblings.

Vous saviez qu’extraire ne se conjugue pas au passé simple ?

Moi non plus, j’y avais jamais réfléchi, c’est fou hein ?

The most beautiful cat cafe I have been to. It’s called Temari no Ouchi (Temari’s house) in Tokyo, Japan. The soft music and ambience feels like you are in a Studio Ghibli film. Had to take the Japan Railway there, but was totally worth the extra trip, & unlike the central Tokyo cat cafes, this one has no time limit, so feels totally relaxed. Several girls were even sleeping there amongst the cats.
