finished version, i might go back and fix a few things but for now i think its done :P

i had to add some more flowers after looking at it and realising how much the colorful wyvern stood out from everything else... so some of the flowers that dont show up in the lineart are painted with acrylics :B

not as much shading as i would have liked, but i was a little scared to mess with the shadows on the wyvern too much for fear of ruining it ^^;

anyways :P any suggestions are cool, im not against going back and fixing a few things.

This is such a BEAUTIFUL design for a wyvern! I love the feathering on the wings, the ornamented head, and the little ridges coming up off its back. The coloration for the wyvern is so pretty! :D I'm not great at shading at all, so to me, this looks just fine. An instant fave!

This is just so whimsical, and pretty. I love it. The design of the wyvern's wings is so delicate and fragile-looking, like those of a butterfly.

I like your wing design a lot; it's like a combination of bat wings and draco volens wings. I'd wondered if anyone had made a dragon like that. :) Nice composition, too!

thanks, i actually had done a dragon some time ago with a similar wing design, but it didn't really work out :P

maybe i'll attempt to paint it again at some point
