The Fantasy Field Guide - Moon Diamond Dragons
Field Guide:
Moon Diamond Dragons or Wichian Mat Dragons

The Moon Diamond Dragon is a species of feral dragon that inhabit many areas of the Ahkahbi Empire. With its thick mane, dark coloration on the its extremities and face and its slender black furred tail, the Moon Diamond is a stunning dragon.

In this illustration:
Traveling towards Tendo, the capital of the Ahkahbi Empire, we witness several 
Moon Diamond dragons gathered around a watering hole. When suddenly two males began tussling. The fight eventually moved from the ground up into the air. We didn't see what started the scuffle but quickly the larger of the two gained the advantage. The loser didn't fly off but simply moved to the other end of the group of dragons away the winner, who now seemed to assert himself as dominant over the whole group.

The Fantasy Field Guide - The King Eater Dragon
Field Guide:
The King Eater Dragon or Le Mangeur de Rois

The King Eater is a species of feral dragon that roam the forests and grasslands. It's muscular frame, powerful wings and strong jaws make it a formidable medium sized dragon. 

In this illustration:
The King Eater may be my favorite dragon to illustrate. And traveling close to the coast we were lucky enough to observe a large male cruising through the sky.

Take your dreams and ambitions and let them be the fuel that drives you and make them the tools that breakthrough the walls of fear and doubt that you might build up around yourself.

I am self taught artist but I did study graphic communications at the University of Southern Mississippi. My preferred medium is illustration with pencil being my preferred media, namely the Pentel CLiCK 0.5 PD275 JAPAN 9G Mechanical Pencil. I also paint and sculpt when the muse takes me. I am here on deviantART to share my work but also to be inspired by my fellow artists.

May you find this a year of solid accomplishment, of a strong and justified sense of vindication in all that you do.  May you never grow so firm in your convictions that you become immune to reason, may you never grow so flexible that your backbone disappears.  May you face courtesy with courtesy, honesty with honor, and never allow yourself to become soiled by the vileness of a cause or opposition.  Remember what you believe and that for which you are fighting, welcome a repentant brother, be just as a implacable as the grimmest foe.  Rejoice in victory, heal from defeat, rise from both to fight with all you have to offer again.  A very happy birthday to you--and may you be ever a Happy Warrior.
