As everyone can see by the question I am showing my deeply essential nerdiness here. In reality earthly dragons should be shown as having two legs and wings. Think bats, their wings resemble long webbed fingers. However I have always worked on the assumption that dragons are not evolved from any animal on Earth, but from someplace else. Read REAmDe by Neal Stephenson for the best explanation of Other Matter and how its works. He put into words what has always been my instinct. In Game of Thrones the dragons have two legs, but their wings look like they almost function as hands. It will be interesting to see how they approach a kill. And speaking of dragons what was up with Avatar having the humanoids be the only life form on the planet with four legs, arms? Just give me an explanation other than six legs/arms being too creepy for audiences.
Of course Chinese dragons get around all this by having no wings, period! But they have colors depending on what they guard and toes....numbered by how high they are. As I recall a five toed dragon is only for the emperor.....and they I think they are called Long. Tea with a dragon anyone?
This little riff was brought on when I built the dragon yesterday and this morning. I was glazing when I just wanted to make this guy. Eventually they will be whistles. I have figured that the whistle part has to made when I get the initial figure closed in, before legs, feet, wings etc. I considered scales, but given the way I decorate I feel that scales would only get in the way.
The sun finally came out enough to dry everything off yesterday. Proge mowed while I stayed inside due to allergies.
We are so glad the weather is warm. The dryer belt broke a few days ago. This is when we start hanging clothes to dry anyway. I'm just so pleased and grateful that it isn't winter.
Enjoy the day.
