Huge inspiration came from this book/picture by Graeme Base's dragon: http://membres.lycos.fr/skanlon/pictures/Graeme_BASE/BASEButterflyDragon.jpg




This little guy is based off a piece of artwork I painted on a girlfriends guitar case about 4 years ago.

However I did take some artistic license with mine. Smiley
I love the sequins I think that's my favorite part. this little guy drinks nectar from flowers similar to how butterflies do. That's why he has a pink curly tounge. He also has a prehensile tail. Smiley
Enjoy!

I did. I have some of it written down but my evil computer decided to restart while I was typing up the nose. I'll have to go over my notes and see if I wrote everything down. Smiley The curse of having 25 notebooks to write in is the one you started in is never around when you finally figure that one thing out that has been frustrating you all day. lol.

Thanks for the compliments everyone!
