January 2012 Happy New Year (the year of the dragon)

Komodo Dragon Sketch
pencil in sketchbook

Drawing fantasy characters are challenging for me.  I have several other pages not in the post of attempts at drawing dragons; they are pensive, sloth like and nonchalant - none of which looked 'dragon' enough for my annual new year stamp.  So, my next choice was to draw the komodo dragon from a photograph on the web.  I think with the head tilt and the sway of the tail, he looks more dragon than anything I could conjure.
