Marsupual TTwTT Oh my god you've answered a question that'd been driving me insane!!!!
I been searching high and low for the name of the bipedal dragons with little front legs and I've found nothing!!!
Thank you!

Haha, you're welcome! =D
I found this in a book about dragons, not sure if it's the official name though, but it's already a thing ^^ seems quite logic too!

I think it's an appropriate term (:
I've been struggling to identify these dragons, I think at long last I can stop pulling my hair out haha!
Thank you TTwTT
But I think I'll identify them the way you put it above, that sounds logical (:

It's hard enough that humans hands are difficult, but dragon hands are harder, but with your tutorial, it seems easy. Thank you for helping us that have a hard time with things like these.

I like your other tutorial better. I was never a fan of "Dragon-paws". Reptilian feet and legs for me, when I can get them. Still very well-done. :)

Realistically, a dragon wouldn't have paws. They're absolutely useless for hunting as a flying predator. Take a look at the feet of eagles for example. They possess talons specially designed for killing and plucking up prey from above. Good point about too long claws dipping into the ground and breaking though, makes a lot of sense.

Helpful, but why no folded paw? Or did you mean no folded paw if the dragon's paw is on the ground and no lifted into the air?

Super intéressant bien qu'en anglais (nan je blague ^^).
T'as éveillé ma curiosité en rallant mais je dois avouer que tu te débrouille pas mal du tout.

En tous les cas ce tuto est vraiment bien foutu et tu peux demander à Doria-Plume je complimente jamais à la légère.

Je repasserai ^^
