-Dragonite- by arvalis -Dragonite- by arvalis

PRINT STORE-BUY THIS THERE


My computer is sorta running again. I've had the idea to do an amphibian Dragonite for weeks without the the means to execute it. Upon research I've discovered that Dratini looks suspiciously like a salamander tadpole, everything just fits into place. Pretty much the only time in nature a vaguely serpentine creature transforms into a reptilian looking critter.

The way I was looking at it is that Dragonites are very rare in the wild as it reaches maturity at around 55 years old. They can be trained into maturity much faster than they grow in nature. Dragonites are exceptional swimmer and are very strong ambush predators, using their powerful legs or tail to propel themselves at prey. They often are mistaken for taking flight when really they just jump great heights.

One thing I've noticed about your pieces, is that they are scaled incorrectly. Dragonite is too big, Dragonair is to small.

Again, I use the official heights from the games. However this piece was an exception where I used the height as length for dragonair, which I have not done since.

Woah- I love how you made the antenna look more aquatic, since the original de-evolutions tend to live in the water. It makes a lot more sense that way. And instead of looking fat, this design makes it look muscular! I wish the real dragonites looked less dopey and more like this!
