Yes, I know what Dragonhawk is referring to...I think it is an extrusion of the hip-bone, which is seen a lot on the more bird-like dinosaurs such as velociraptor and such. It is not a "weiner," just a bone structure in a lot of those sorts of dinosaurs. Kind of like the Velociraptor image I am going to post (please note: this is an old image I made in MSPaint, so don't criticize me too much, since I have improved TONS since then! :p )

Yeah, I think I know what kind of look you are going for Dragonhawk...if you want it to be a more elegant dragon, then maybe try arching the back and have it standing on 4 legs, as the dragon that I posted was. It was just a thought. Also, the knees looked a little off to me...the rear legs look WAY too flexible. Maybe try toning that a little more. Hope this helps some!

Uhhhh....I don't think I want to know.... It all started when someone was wondering what that extrusion was between the dragon's legs....then somebody took it for a "weiner," and I said what it really was, but people are still taking the "weiner" assumptions....*rolls eyes* Some men............. Lol, just kidding guys!

No, there is nothing wrong with you guys saying "penis." I was not saying that. I was just saying that I am not really that surprised that you guys are joking about stuff like that. I was just joking around anyway, I personally don't really care if you guys say the word "penis." It is just my weird sense of humor, lol. You guys can talk about all the "penises" you want...lol!! Yeah, it is definately an extrusion of the pelvis bone though. I have seen that on a lot of dinosaurs like Velociraptors, and Dragonhawk said himself it was caused by a type of dinosaur bone.

Lol!!! Yeah, well I used to have this obsession with dinosaurs when I was younger...I did a lot of research on velociraptors and stuff back then. I even had one of those build-it-yourself dinosaur bone kits made of wood for a velociraptor, lol!!! I think the original Jurrasic Park and the second one (The Lost World) made me so obsessed with them, lol! When I was in high school...I built a large, life-sized model of a velociraptor out of chicken wire, wood, and then covered it with plaster strips...it just shows how much I liked dinosaurs then, lol!!!!!!

Ehehe, sorry about that Dragonhawk, I guess we got a little carried away on that whole issue.... Anyway, the dragon is beginning to look a lot better in my opinion! I like how the body is a little stockier, since now it does not look as emaciated as it did before. It is really beginning to come along! Also, in my opinion the wings look a little too rounded...maybe try making them resemble more like bat wings or something, since dragon wings usually resemble those of a bat's anyway. Also, this is just a thought, it is entirely up to you...but I think it would look pretty neat if you had rows of spike-like things coming out slantways on the top of the dragon's neck extending on its back and to its tail...it's kind of hard to explain, but I will maybe try posting something later with a quick sketch overtop of your dragon to show you what I mean. Keep up the great work though!

Hi again Dragonhawk. I decided to post a quick drawing of a dragon wing I did in paint with cell shading. Hehe, don't mind my sloppiness, since I did it rather quickly ...:bored: but maybe it will help you create the dragon wings.

And here is a pic of the dragon with the "spines" I was referring to...it is entirely up to you if you want to do it or not.
