Dragon of Pern by coda-leia Dragon of Pern by coda-leia
This is a dragon from Pern. I suppose he might be blue as my character Junikar impressed the blue Ulenth :D
and yes this is an attempt of drawing a saddle on his back :p

By the First Egg, I love this universe !

Pern dragons were created by Anne McCaffrey

Very nicely done. Je l'aime bien. Which club do you RP with, if you don't mind me asking? I've tried several but stick principally with Kadanzer Weyr.

I was on Crescent Weyr (in english) and on Terre des Dragons (in french). The english RP one was my first one but it was really difficult to play in another language, interact with other people... And with the french one, I finally stoped because I lacked inspiration and time to play v_____v

Aha, I had debated trying a French RP for practice, but I was afraid I'd be beaten senseless for grammatical inconsistency. That and a lack of background in common idioms that might screw with my interpretations.

Die hard Pern Fan right here.
You are amazing at drawing dragons. I've tried before and it never seems to go right, either out of proportion or something just doesn't look roght i don't know but yours are so good.

A dragon! A big, beautiful dragon!:heart:
Very lovingly done, strong and still elegant!
I never read Pern, if not a short story inserted in a collection book ("legends") alongside other fantasy tales. I liked it very much and now your drawings have made me want to read something more of this author

Ooo very cool! I never read Pern but my ex kept talking about it ; ) I remember they also came up with a PC game for it long ago.

Anyway, I love your dragon anatomy, love the face and torso. Great!

yes I saw that a PC game existed but I read that it was pretty bad too and old. I'm sure they could do something better now.
Thanks Isa :)

Little known fact about Pernese dragons:

Their butts are on the ends of their tails, but not where you'd expect them to be.


I love that series too!

Can you imagine if they got the runs and had broken tailbones at the same time?
