A Morning Haul

Posted Feb 21, 2018, 8:01:51 AM

Finally finished this! I've been meaning to make art of Hyūra, since she's who I'm attempting to focus on right now, but I kept getting distracted, heh. This shows her coming back from a successful hunt during a winter morning. It does snow regularly during the winter months on the home archipelago, so I decided it was past time to show something during winter that isn't inside the roosting cave :)

Hyūra here is wearing her winter hunting vest- it has leather loops threaded through it so that after she's done hunting, she can go to where she hid her kills and can easily fasten them to her side and carry home, it makes for less trips back and forth. Its lighter color also provides camouflage, since her dark green scales are meant for a lush leafy environment and thus stick out like a sore thumb in snow, and is made of thick fabric lined with fur on the inside (and along the collar) to keep her warm, since she has no genetic adaptations to such cold. She also wears fabric "boots" to keep her feet from freezing~ She has one for the other seasons, which is brown and a lot thinner. The energetic girl hunts almost every morning for the family in the other seasons, but once the cold hits, she opts to stay inside more and have the other dragons take the brunt of it- though she still will participate every few days.

Art and character belong to me.

    I'm surprised a dragon would get cold. Does this one not breathe fire?

      Nope, dragons have abilities specialized for their surroundings. Her ethnic origin is a huge tropical forest, so fire would be easily put out by all the surrounding water, and were it not, using it could burn their home down. A few of my other kids breathe fire though, they tend to hold up in winter better.

    I like what you've done with the forest background here.
