Rainbow of Dragons by Eurwentala Rainbow of Dragons by Eurwentala
I recently read The Dragon Keeper by Robin Hobb and was greatly inspired by the way dragons were depicted, with an integument of scale-feather intermediates and an arrogant nature. The dragons in the story were badly misformed and couldn't fly, but I tried to depict them in poses they don't look too bad. There's little Heeby on the left, Sintara in the middle, the savage-natured Fente in the bottom and one of the unnamed orange males on the right.

It's nice to draw something ridiculously colourful once in a while.

Your Heeby is absolutely perfect! I instantly knew it was her, partially due to the color, but also due to how big her eyes are in comparison to the other dragons. It gives her a childish, playful look which perfectly matches my image of Heeby <3

Thanks. :) I just finished reading City of Dragons, and the dragons have caught my imagination again just as badly as they did last time.

I know, I love the Rain Wild Chronicles so much, I would've said it's my favorite series by her but they all are :D I haven't read the last one yet though, I can't wait to get started on that one when my finals are done ^^

I just started this series halfway through the first book. I LOVE it. I'm surely going to read them all, I already have the 2nd one borrowed out from the library. Anyway fantastic renditions of these characters. I especially like Heeby, cute! :3

If I had a dragon, I'd like it to be like Heeby. Not necessarily as intelligent as the others, but so sweet. :) Though a wise one like Mercor would be awesome too.

I liked the books too. Not necessarily new masterpieces of literature, but very pleasant to read.

i love your depictions of a few of the dragons from the rain wild chronicles, they just make me very happy, cant wait for the last book to come out, also could you please show me how you would draw the keepers, i would be happy just to see them in black and white, but if your willing to give up a bit of time could you draw them in colour.

Thanks! Glad you like them.
I don't usually draw people (I'm not very good at it and animals are more interesting) but the Rain Wilds touch got my imagination. Maybe I will do that, actually. :)
