Sikanderjar - species sideview WIP - by Araless Sikanderjar - species sideview WIP - by Araless
One of the many dragon species from the story I'm about to create. I worked for more than a year on it and I'm still not done. Now I posted a WIP of it just because I wanted to show you what I'm currently working on. All I can give you now is some basic information about these dragon's. I can tell you more about it when the real species sheet is done.

-This specie is called Sikanderjar (sikand=elegant / erjar=dragon)
-They are one of the smallest dragons in Aethera but very fast and excellent fliers.
-Their bones are hollow and therefor they can't take much damage. In return they have a fair hand with magic.
-They are bound to one to three elements and can create dangerous and also helpful spells.
-They are all fire breathing dragons and the color of their flames is depending on each dragon's primary element.
-The most interesting thing is that they're having at least two tails (2-5 same for the wing fingers) which are connected through a flexible membran which gives them a bird-like silhouette in the air.
-They can move their front and hind claws like human hands, therefor they can use all kind of weapons and objects

So, that's all information I can offer for now. On the real ref I will provide lot's of info about their social lives as well.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask :)

I just ADORE the legs on this guy, very sexy ;3! Its a very lovely species, It's interesting how they have split-ended tails like that, I bet they have a very smooth and stable flight being like a birds-tail shape :3
Great anatomy too <3

Thank you Sez :heart:
I'm so glad everyone loves the legs because this was the most difficult part for me >__<
Yeah, I imagine them to fly like a bird, only with membran instead of feathers. Maaayyybe I should shorten the wings and tails a little bit for anatomy's sake but on the other side I just love huge wings on a dragon like that.

I think the wing size is perfect :3
Any smaller and I think it would look wrong!
Perhaps the tails could be shortened, but I dont think theres anything wrong with them this length, it makes the species look much more pretty :3

the recess in the membrane doesn't create friction?

Schönes Design :3
Mein Ventus hat auch solche kleinen rundlichen Schuppen, ich liebe diese Art von Schuppen einfach *_*
Sie sehen so leicht udn weich aus, wirken aber trotzdem wie eine Art Schutz.
Mich würden jetzt nur noch die Farben interessieren XD
Gibt auch Unterschiede zwischen Weibchen und Mänchen?
Der Drache hier sieht wegen seinem Horn auf der Nase männlich aus :)
Sorry für die ganzen Fragen, aber ich mag die Spezies irgendwie ^-^
