Lancer & Mage
In Eastern mythology, dragons are serpentine, capable of flight even though they have no wings. Unlike Western dragons, Eastern ones are thought to be calm and benevolent. More often than not, Eastern dragons are sought for advice rather than slain by heroes, since their Western counterparts were said to be far greedier and prone to extreme bouts of violence.
While the form of this dragon suggests that it is of Eastern descent, its color and attitude reveals Western roots as well. My goal was to render a dragon with both sensibilities so that the contradictions can be merged naturally without it being pegged as from any specific home region.
