The Sea Dragons by kokiteno The Sea Dragons by kokiteno
I am a water creature. My western zodiac sign is Cancer (water), my chinese sign is the Metal Rooster (Yin-yin) and my Mayan sign is Imox, the crocodile.

It should come as no surprise, then, that the dragons I'dfavor would be the deep sea leviathan kind. Inspired by :iconshinfox:, I decided I should make my own water wyrms. I had two ideas for a deep-sea dragon, so I decided to draw them both side by side and see which one you guys and girls like the most.

Tannin on the left is a more traditional drake in terms of physiognomy, with the colouring based on sea dragons (the sea horses) and whale sharks.

Liwy is a more fishy-like kind of leviathan, inspired by the deep sea viperfish (though he came out cuter than the RL counterpart) in form and in colouring.

Well? Which one do you like?

Personally, my votes goes for Tannin. More reptilian looking :)
Still, both look great :)

To be honest bro, the Viperfish one Liwy is my favorite simply because it is such a unique and well thought design. Anthropomorphizing the deep sea fish and turning them into these types of dragons was a real cool idea. Although he does looks slightly cuter than a normal viperfish, he still has a menace to him that keeps him looking cool as well.
Tannin looks to be your typical sea dragon design, but I like how his ear fins light up as well. The bioluminescent effect you created here works out well. Frankly bro I know how much you love the sea, but I'd still be afraid to live in the darkest and deepest depths of the ocean. And having creatures like these there wouldn't put me at ease either.
Good work bro. It's nice to see you're still posting up your work. ^^
I'm also sorry I haven't been online lately cause of my work overload and need to get much sleep. I'm working on my artwork right now as we speak trying to get creative juices flowing.
Great work big bro. ^^ These creatures are great!
