Wounded Warrior by TheShadowStone Wounded Warrior by TheShadowStone
I've desired to draw an MLP dragon for a while now, it having been 5 months since my original Dragon vector.

This dragon is heavily inspired from Glaedr from the Eragon Series books.
I originally wanted to make the dragon sitting up, like a wise-wizard sort of character, and being haughty about himself, but I saw there was already a sitting up dragon pose done, so I didn't do that, so I went with an older dragon, or a middle-aged dragon who had seen his fair share of battles.
I'm really hoping sometime in the MLP show they delve a little deeper into the dragon lore. I'd like to see one converse with Celestia or something.

After I started vectoring I found a show-accurate pose of the dragon like this, but the backside seemed TOO bulbous, so I kept with how I drew it.
I wanted to make his scales shiny and maybe give more contrast to his colors, but I just couldn't find a good color combination, so I left it alone as is.

I do not own My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

"Oh this? Don't worry about it; just a scratch. It's nothing compare to the smack-down I gave to that insolent upstart..."

"And...who was this 'upstart'? Was he by any chance red, about 10-11 feet high, and an all-around punk?"

"Garble? He's not an upstart - he's a GNAT, a sniveling coward who wastes his time picking on those weaker than him, but hides behind his monstrous elders when trouble picks on him. No. That 'upstart' is a green wall-lizard who still has the gall to call himself a true dragon even after he let a little HATCHLING steal from his hoard and get away with it."

"Oh! That guy! Heh, funny story about that: that ''hatchling' didn't even KNOW Mr. Green's cave was occupied. Yeah, he barged in by ACCIDENT; was scared out of his mind...and he STILL got away. Pretty pathetic, huh?" :D

This kinda reminds me of something I have planned for a fanfic.

Very nicely done!

Didn't the staff once accidentally let slip about liking that one episode where Fluttershy and a a dragon swap species? At some convention during Season 3?

Hopefully we get that in S4...and that might give some better light on dragons.

Ever notice there's not even a single female dragon in Equestria?

Actually, there was Crackle, which I think was supposed to pass as a female. It's the one Rarity, RD and Twilight disguise themselves as which turns out to be real.
