Hello my friends. Here's something i painted while trying out my new tablet.
It's the portrait of a Copperhead Dragon , a fearsome yet noble creature. Despite their moderate size , Copperheads are some of the most durable and physically strong dragons. They move through the woodlands with deadly agility , preying upon large beasts like striped rhinos and Galephants. Their thick scales protect them from all but the most destructive of blows , rendering them virtually unkillable by conventional means. Like most Dragons , Copperheads possess wings , however , due to the fact that they inhabit dense jungles , they use them mostly for gliding between places silently , since the thick canopy doesn't allow free flight to creatures as big as dragons. Unlike most Dragons , Copperheads cannot produce any kind of Dragonbreath. For this reason , many scholars and druids are sceptical about the Copperhead's ancestry , some even claiming that they are not "true" Dragons. Such claims ofcourse are unbased since Copperheads share every other dragonic characteristic , including the strong affinity for magic.
Despite their horrifying capabilities , Copperheads are not the terrorizing tyrants most of their cousins are. They enjoy solitude and kill only to feed or protect themselves. They do not thrive in mindless destruction but instead , possess a sense of preservance when it comes to nature. For this reason they are greatly respected by the Elven tribes , who idolize the dragons for their strength and character. It is said that , an elf who gains the friendship of a Copperhead is chosen for greatness.
