Colored and uncolored varients on the same drawing. The coloring was done by a good firend of mines, though I think they may be a bit to busy to be my colorist full-time. By the way I told her to color the way she wanted, mainly to test her skills so I knew if I had the right person for the job. Note that the color for the character riding the dragon is not official.
Mainly because the character is (or appears to be) human which means he's supposed to be colored like one.
It's for a concept of a story I may work on in the future, about legendary dragons called, Qwell Dragons. They were a special kind of dragon that takes on a human form. The lead character is one of those, but he doesn't have full control of his ability to conceal himself among humans. He may accidently keep his tail, among other known accidents. A cool idea is that these characters turning into dragons and battling agianst enemies and other dragons. Their are degrees to the transformation. The full dragon form is 100%, while just having your dragonic claws would be sorta 10% or less.
They still retain their personalities even when they transform. Their dragons who pose as humans so they are not half-breeds and they tend to retain their carnal instincts even in human form. Quell Dragons have never been known to eat living things unless they choose too and they are known for being myschievous and causing trouble. They are like saiyins, as in they love to fight.
