Valkyrerjar Adopt - Freyr by Araless Valkyrerjar Adopt - Freyr by Araless
Design trade with :iconblackchaos666:
I absolutely love this character! If it was not an adoptable I would have kept him for sure!
Was much fun working on this.

Also, this is the final design of my Valkyrie dragons now. No more feathers (except for the brooch behind their necks) but lots of fins and frills instead. They are still not an open breed but possibly will become in the future.


Name: Freyr
Species: Valkyrerjar (Valkyrie Dragon) 
Gender: Herm (male article preferred)
Birthstone: Peridot
Element: Light and Earth
Size: Medium
Eyes: Yellow/Green
Soul Color: Gold
Wing Type: Vulture

Got one of these lovely birdie's in return:

Zul'Zurahno Adoptables! by BlackChaos666

Vertebrates are tetrapods, not hexapods.
The wings are nothing else than transformed upper limbs due to evolution, not an additional 3rd pair of limbs.

Also, vertebrates have 5 digits.

You really ought to cut these comments out to our art. The picture clearly shows the wings are placed behind the front arm scapula, how exactly do you know that these limbs haven't evolved directly from a second arm pair? It's a dragon! Get over it! If your so obsessed with the fact that this is a vertibrate having six limbs then may be you should just not comment at all, it's really rude!

How many times are you going to write these spam messages on my pictures?! Next time I'll block you, seriously! If I didn't make my point clear last time, I will do it this time.

Dragons are fantasy creatures! There is a reason why things like this don't exist in real life. Who do you think you are by taking the rights to decide what a creature should look like? If you like dragons with four limbs instead of six it's YOUR opinion! Stop force it on others! It makes you look like an idiot and very arrogant, too.

I've had this person comment literally the same thing on my anatomy reference sheet, don't take him seriously I think he's really not one to talk about anatomy at all looking at his gallery. Really I don't get the point of this, the wings can easily have evolved from a second arm pair so I think actually it doesn't even matter, dragons are too awesome to be questioned of such anatomy!

Oh well, I realized this genious is spreading his message on almost every dragon art out there. Sadly, blocking is the only solution as he wrote the same comment not just on one but on several artworks of mine. Really annoying as hell. We don't need such persons here. I just want to enjoy the art, nothing more.

Danke! Ich war mir mit dem grün auch erst nicht sicher. Wollte es notfalls weglassen, falls es nicht passt. Aber dezent an einigen Stellen hat es dann doch gut mit den anderen Farben harmoniert :)

Generell ist diese Spezies sehr schön! Chaos ist ein kleiner Glückspilz so einen schönen Drachen zu besitzen ^^

I like that we came to a similar conclusion for combining bird and bat wings.  Great minds think alike as they say ;p

Haha, I wondered why nobody mentioned the wings earlier! It's basically a revamped version of an old concept of mine. I tried to use such wings a few years ago and this hideous creature came out: araless.deviantart.com/art/Tia…
Back then I had little knowledge about wing anatomy and it was too much of a challenge for me, so I scrapped it and used normal feathered wings instead. However I never felt really comfortable with this so I dug out the old concept a while ago and tried again. I got some helpful advises from a friend of mine who has great knowledge about dinosaurs and birds. So, this is the final result and I'm glad I finally found something I'm satisfied with.

Btw your art is absolutely incredible! And your thornhawk is amazing! It's a similar concept but what I really like about it's wings is that they still can't be mistaken for feathers unlike mine. Yeah, I get these kind of comments but I'm not gonna change the wings any further even if they still look a lot like feathers xP

I also like your icon a lot. Monster Hunter + Pokemon = epic win :P
