Baby dragon by Nazegoreng Baby dragon by Nazegoreng
Me and mum did a quick photoshoot of my new baby green tree python. I loved the look of this pic, thought he looked very dragonish, so drew on some extra features.

To make things clear the photo was a join effort, I posed and held the python while mum took the shot. I did the editing/photomanip and drawing. cheers :D

I can't tell you how much I like this piece. Dragons have always appealed to me, but this is the closest to realism one could get and I applaud you for it. 5 stars for this, and I think it is more than deserved. The Vision of a snake-like dragon is marvelous, because that is exactly what oriental dragons resemble. The Originality is amazing- I haven't seen this done before. Your technique is almost perfect- I would have added spots to the legs and more texture to the antlers. The Impact is overwhelming. I fell in love with this at first sight.
What do you think?

From a distant or tiny view, this is a lovely image in itself. Very nice lighting and colors.

From a detailed inspection, this is spectacular. Beautiful job on the morph. I especially love the whiskers.

Also, congrats on finding one of these rare and elusive creatures! I thought they were all myths. :giggle:

This is the cutest lil' thing! :squee: Chad was an adorable Hatchling!!! Sadly I never saw Joker as a Hatchling, she was already full grown, although her hatchlings are all adorable! :love: I love that you call him a dragon, lots of people call crested geckos that, but joker is my Gremlin:)

I kept geckos for a little while. I did think they were cute but I felt myself not giving them the attention they deserve. I think snakes suit me partly because I'm fairly busy, and I like low maintenance pets. I find them very alluring anyway, they are really amazing creatures.

He's been such a sweetie ever since the day I got him. Never struck, and is puppydog tame as an adult too. I was super lucky.

You sure were, that's really unusual. You probably got him from a really good breeder that worked with the babies.

That's great! I miss my snake. I had snow corn snake for 8 years, he passed away last summer. He was such a big old sweetie. He was 5 feet, 4 inches when he died, and I'm only 5'2! But my mom hates snakes and won't let me get another. :(

Awww he sounds like he was so beautiful. My mother hated snakes for years, one day I told her I was getting one, and after she saw how placid he was she was fine.

This corn snake couldn't be more placid, but my mom was still afraid he'd "jump" out of his cage (never mind the lid, cage clips, or complete lack of legs!) So I guess I'll just have my herd of bunnies.

Greenies are funny, cuz they hatch either yellow, like this guy, or a rusty red, then they change colors as they become adults. Gorgeous critters. I have 2 black cats lol
