The Dragon of Tuscany by Netarliargus The Dragon of Tuscany by Netarliargus
The Copper Dragon Ambrogino resides in the Italian region of Tuscany. A place known for its gorgeous landscapes, its rich traditions and artistic legacy. When the little Copper isn't playing pranks on the local populace he enjoys a bottle of Chianti wine. It is said he tends to his own small vineyard and will share a bottle with anyone who can make him laugh or entertain him in some way.

It is the Copper Dragon from D&D, wanted to use a new coloring technique for this one. I rather like the way it turned out.

Hmh, he would still use that silly glider when he'd had a dagon at hand? Mhm, now picturing Ezio riding a dragon. :D

Uh oh, not Italy! Is there anywhere safe for humans to be anymore?

Dragons must surrender to humans in a manner similar to this...[link]

Word for word...and I mean it...XD

They're far to proud to surrender to something like a human, they'd rather die.

That's okay, we humans always got a contingency plan, i.e. shotgun to the face XD! [link]

The dragons should be happy we are allowing them to surrender, we could just slay them all...

Oh, I tried that but believe me when I say it didn't come out nearly as well as I'd hoped, so I left it as it was.

Oh, very nice! But one question, why is smoke coming out of it's nostrils when copper dragons breathe slow gas and acid?

Well, the slow gas isn't colorless is it?

Haaaaa, another character for your story? That blue eye really looks interesting combined with the dragon's color. Did you use a picture for the background? The dragon blends in nicely with those reflections and shadings.
What is this ''new coloring technique' exactly? I like it!
