Javelin's Wyvern by arvalis Javelin's Wyvern by arvalis
This is Javelin's wyvern. Ive wanted to design a wyvern for the character for many years, but was never pleased with a design. Once i doodled this dragon in my sketchbook, i thought i had finally nailed it. Im nicknaming it Guavern, as its color pattern was inspired by the Guava Skipper butterfly, thank *super-ninja-monkeys for that name. This is another concept for my final project pitch. Oh yeah, thank ~NuclearBandaid for helping me on this one.

I love it! I love wyverns! Probably because it is a Nordic mythical creature. I just love the paddle and wings too. I would love to see the wings unfolded. By the way have you thought if it can breathe fire or has venomous teeth etc, you know like wyverns are usually depicted.

Im sure you have gotten this before but it kind of reminds me of the Nargacuga in its body color, but at the same time it really is quite original, awesome job!

Really awesome, but I can't help but notice the tail looks fat. Too fat for proper flight; I'd suggest making more of a 'fan-tail' if you ever make things like this; fan tails are great rudders.

Look at it from above in the silhouette, it's very thin, just wide from the side. I've since updated it anyway.

magnificent. i love wyverns more than almost any other dragon, save for the Great Dragons, whom are their only natural enemies. yours i especially like because of its armor and lack of a stinging tail barb.

The part of this I like the most is it's tail, which is a nub compared to most other dragon tails.

The anatomy on this guy is perfect. The wings could use some more rippling to indicate length, unless, of course, the webbing is aesthetic or vestigial. Everything else is perfect though.

Let me explain why I like the tail so much though. Difference is awesome, and compared to the usual, that tail is unique. It's not too often you see wyverns with clubbed tails.

This goes in the interesting collection. Wonderful Job.
