I recently joined Tale of Dragons and was promptly brought on team to do up a dragon just in time for the departure of one of their admins, Corteo. He's leaving for Russia for a few months so the owner, Silver, wanted to do a dragon as a special goodbye, which is where these guys came in.
They're hatched from matryoshka 'eggs' and have owl wings and tiger stripes. They are gold with two heads because I believe the presidential flag of Russia features a two-headed golden bird which strongly influenced the design of these dragons.
The basic dragons are the gold ones on top, Corteo's alternate (made special for his departure) are the blue ones.Nakase
sketched the adult dragons, I fixed things up like the wings and added long feathers and whatnot and then sprited the whole thing, as well as the eggs. Infinis
sketched and sprited the hatchlings.
