HONKS one of the neat things about living in NZ (and particularly Welly) is that 1 out of every 3 people you meet are in LOTR. In that new BOFA trailer my mate Matt is one of the gold-armoured elves who salute Bard.
More NeverEnding Story. Trying something a wee bit more painterly than usual
You’ll want to click to expand the above image. There’s a bunch of detail that didn’t really show up great at smaller size.
This is just some doodles I did to explore some dragon body language. I’m trying to explore the idea that dragons, having different bodies, don’t use the same gestures and body language that humanoids do. This set is me exploring some gestures with their wings using a sitting green dragon and laying silver dragon as examples.
Dragons take up a lot of space and flexing their wings allows them to occupy even MORE space. To me, a dragon pulling its wings close to its body is a way of indicating that it is willing to let another dragon or creature/humanoid approach it and enter its personal space. The two gestures on the left mean “You may approach me.”
It takes but a second for a dragon to expand and mark out its personal bubble of space. A flexing out of the wings is a way for a dragon to say “Hey, please stay away. Give me my space.” Laying it across the ground when reclining or extending it out to the side when sitting is what’s depicted above. There are other things a dragon can signal by flaring out its wings, but this is just a basic example.
I’m going to try to do a whole set of these when I have the time. They were a lot of fun and I feel like there’s a lot more body language to explore! This is just a touch of world building for my Wanderlust Tales project I’m working on with my husband. It’s mostly about dragons :D DRAGONS!

She’s doing very well! As you can see, she is in shed so she wasn’t out long. But I did need to get some updated photos of our little Greenie. She would NOT sit still so I had to hold her to make her feel more secure.
