People having wings specific to different birds, people with owl wings able to gracefully fly without making a sound, people with air diving bird wings (eagles, hawks, buzzards) who can fall for long distances but not break any bones if they land correctly, people with water bird wings who have water proof ones which dry very quickly. 

-Society having sub groups among the subgroups each type of wings having stereotypes (eg. prey birds: Housewife/husband).

FUN TRIVIA FACT

Other than the plated scales, tough leathery skin, frilled head, horned skull anatomy and sinuous tail, mythological and folkloric dragons have very little in common anatomically with actual reptiles. They have MORE in common with the Felidae genus (cat family) and the Aves Phylum Chordata (bird classification).

Like a cat’s eye, a dragon’s eye has a comparatively large iris with a vertical pupil. This arrangement allows the pupil to open extremely wide and receive
more light than that of a human eye.

A dragon’s legs are also decidedly nonreptilian, despite the scaly coverings. A dragon’s legs are positioned more or less directly under its body, in the manner of mammals. (Most reptiles’ legs tend to splay out to the sides, offering
much less support and mobility than a mammal).

Lasly, a dragon’s four feet very closely resemble those of a great bird. Each foot has three or four clawed toes facing forward (the number varies, even among dragons of the same kind), plus an additional toe, also with a claw, set farther back on the foot and facing slightly inward toward the dragon’s body, like a human’s thumb.


A dragon’s resemblance to a reptile is literally only skin deep  So the next time someone you know refers to mythical dragons as giant lizards, you’ll have the know-what to save a life.

It took over 60 hours but the bird… it’s finally done! This is without doubt the most extensive and best piece of work I’ve ever done, and damnit I’m proud!

Many many thanks to the people who sat through the many streams of me zoomed in to like 500% drawing feathers for hours, you guys helped a lot

Keep an eye on my etsy for the prints of this pretty boi coming soon (A3 and A1 for sure, who knows what other sizes, how exciting >_>)

Result of tonight’s late stream. 

I love Sirens.

 I’ll draw Aquatic Siren link later. 

I personally think Sirens have the ability to change their form with their songs, which is why Aireal and Aquatic sirens exist. Anyway, here’s what I think the Aireal look like. Theres a Harpy on the side to tell the difference. 


Bonus: 

Sidon doesnt like Nutella and Link breaks up with him.

MYTHOLOGICAL AESTHETICS:
The Phoenix 

“I was never surprised that they did not have a phoenix on display. There is only one phoenix at a time, of course, and while the Natural History Museum was filled with dead things, the phoenix is always alive.”

-Neil Gaiman, Unnatural Creatures
