The Great Dragon by AlectorFencer The Great Dragon by AlectorFencer
My contribution to the RARE 2012 Anthro Calendar and the theme of this years calendar is: Mythological Anthros.

I got to draw the Great Dragon.
I spent a long time researching for the origin of the mythology and since it has so many different beginnings and corners, the 'true' depiction of the Great Dragon would be by far not as imposing as this one.

Therefore I decided for the archetype of the dragon and made it a tad bigger.

You can pre-order the calendar until September 30th for a price of 20$ (+8$ international shipping). For ordering and more information visit our official website: [link]

I am in awe of the scale of this dragon...how much difference was "a tad" exactly? Because this is probably the largest earthbound dragon I have seen aside from Ancalagon the Black.

Assuming his world plays by OUR physics. 
If we're talking fantasy-land....well, he's not imploding under his own weight any time soon.

Well, he may not be evil, or even overtly hostile to us puny humans. For all we know, he's so nice he makes Mr. Rogers look like Gordon Ramsey.

Its amazing! But, are u sure that dragon of this scale would have such anatomical build? I have been thinking of drawing such a monster but i always give up due to not being sure, how such size should be portrayed to be MOST realistic. I remember i liked the muscularity of the giant in httyd, as it seemed right to me (except for the part when he flew xD) but this one on your picture is way bigger!

On TV, dragons are sometimes depicted to feed on humans. But with this guy, it would be as if humans fed on ants... Not much sustenance there. Which means that in real life, these big boys would starve to death pretty quick... I'd love to have this as a poster. It would look bad ass.

I love this. I am actually looking up certain type if dragon designs for a half sleeve I want. And this fits what I'm looking for (still looking around) and I was wondering if I were to ever get the half sleeve and I decide I wanted to go to this one would I be able to use it for my tattoo?
I'm an artist but I just can't draw dragons as well as most people. I like ferocious ones. Mine are to friendly :/

at first sight i just thought it looked cool. then lookd what it was sititng on, and my eyes bulged.
for some reason i am less scared of its size than what it eats to survive.

What a magnificent-looking dragon! :wow: The colouring and the amount of detail you've put into it look amazing, particularly the way its tail curling around the mountain gives an impression of just how large it is. I like the pose too, particularly the way it looks so commanding and the outstretched wings. Great work! :clap:
