Wow so there’s a lot I didn’t include on the ref sheet that I’m just gonna include it all in the description. I ended up doing a lot of research on Eastern dragons for this, and what I found was rather surprising! There’s an old legend that says a certain carp can climb a certain waterfall and transform into a dragon, which is why I went with fins instead of hair for this guy. I imagine that when he moves the fins are really flowy like a betta fish or koi.
Also apparently Eastern dragons’ ears are deaf, and they instead hear via their horns, so I figure he maybe hears with vibrations, with his horns being like tuning forks. I cropped this guys ears instead of maiming them because I thought it’d be something different.
The dragons that were for the Emperor alone had five toes, while those for the nobles had four and those for everyone else had three, so of course I gave him five digits since he is supposed to be royalty. For his feet I went with osprey/owl toes in that the innermost toe is reversible. So he can either have four front facing toes and one hind facing, or three front facing and two hind facing. Probably gives him a wicked grip. I also made his claws/horns golden because the golden dragons were those reserved for the Emperor.
And of course a lot of Eastern dragons are shown with their pearl of wisdom, which I didn’t include, but I figure he usually carries it in his throat pouch to keep it safe, something that’s not known to many.
Of course, Kee is free to take or leave any or all of this information, and change whatever they’d like! I had a blast working on this design; probably my favorite yet!
