Talon by neondragon Talon by neondragon
I piece I did in early 2009. Some of you may have seen this in my livejournal earlier this year.

This image is one of many spot illustrations to be used in my third how-to-draw book (this time centered exclusively around dragons). This image is the spot illustration that sits alongside a wing unit about wings that do not have branched fingers, and are instead a single large flap of skin stretched tight by a single bone structure along the top, much like a pterodactyl. I added a quick background for it for web display.

For more of my artwork, visit neondragonart.com :-)

Nice dragon. The no fingers thing is cool, though I've always personally thought that it pulls away from the dragon and makes it look more like a dino. Not my style, personally, but I'm not the author with the how to draw books. DragonArt: how to draw fantastic dragons and fantasy creatures was the first how to draw book i ever bought and I've never regretted it. It's also one of the best how to drw dragons books ive seen. most of the others are made for people that use photoshop and have curved away from the 'how to draw'.
good work, though. keep it up and everyone will know who you are

It's a Deinonychus dragon! Big talons like daggers!

The eyes are so...feral. Such a wild dragon!

I wonder, what would a species like this be called?

Back on topic, lovely picture. I've always loved Dinosaurs and I've always loved Dragons. Seeing something that is a mix of the two just screams awesome.

That is awesome! I love the entire look of the dragon plus the extra large claw on each foot. Very much a raptor look in that respect. Very beautiful work again Neon! I can't wait for your next book! :D
