re nightmaresky: thanks, I've been having a lot of fun designing them.
re Imola: aww, but his sad puppy eyes earned him a break.
re Zheyna: it probably helps his case that arrogance and a short temper aren't so much character flaws with dragons much as part of the standard package.
re doom Bubbles: yeah, I was contemplating different ways of doing the transformation, but opted for a low-key one since it's not a big deal for them. Yeah, he ended up being a bit plain looking next to the others, but it makes it easier to draw him repetitively, and I kinda like the red and yellow coloring.
re Neko with a Katana: He's actually only about an average fighter among drakes, but even though he has a solid coloring, the the red-on-yellow pattern is considered fairly dynamic among dragons, not quite as much as Durham's orange and blue, but more than the orange fellow's. Drake was one of the first dragons that I designed, and the one that I have to draw the most, so he got a simple design.
re darkravin: thanks ^_^, I use photoshop elements, which came for free with my tablet.
I love this comic, I hope you don't mind but I sent you an email containing fanart. (my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org) just so you know who it is. I love your art and your dragons, please keep up the brilliant work!
