AtoZ 2018 – C is for Crystal Dragon by drachenmagier

Crystal Dragon by drachenmagier

It’s time to shine in the April AtoZ Challenge 2018, so here is a beautiful Crystal Dragon by professional artist drachenmagier.

I love how the horns and wings mirror each other, and how the wing crystals hover just over the powerful wing limbs.  As someone pointed out in the comments, in a six-limbed creature, the wing limbs being stronger would make a lot of sense for a heavy dragon that flies most of the time!

Drachenmagier has an extensive and beautiful gallery, a Tumblr where you can follow them for even more artwork, and a personal website where they blog about their projects and progress.  I particularly love their most recent work called Space Unicorn and Galaxy Serpent (I’ll even forgive the horse tail), but I found it after I gave drachemagier this “C” spot and already had my “S” post picked out!  Still, go check it out!

And full disclosure, I’ve featured this artist once before, and even use their artwork Dusk and Dawn as my Writing Dragons Facebook cover photo, but I always meant to get back to their artwork, and this was a perfect chance to do that!


I’m keeping it simple this year with my theme of “Odds and Ends Dragons” — amazing artwork by artists I’ve come across in past searches, but wasn’t able to find a spot for at the time.  Read more at my Theme Post.

All of these AtoZ posts should appear around 9:05 AM CT (-5 GMT) each day Monday through Saturday.  For even more dragons, check out my 2016 and 2017 posts!

Thanks for reading, take care, and stay creative!
