Yet another of my older drawings; this one dating back to approximately Summer 2001. At the time, I chose to redraw and redesign my dracans because my technique had improved noticeably since thinking them up back in 2000 (then one year ago). Like any other artist, I had grown to cherish them and their appearance, no longer shocked by the pure reptiliarity (is that even a word? Oh well -- it is now!) of their physiology and instead taking pride in it.

Still, the key elements to their physiology I left in place: scales rather than of clothes, three-fingered hands on arms doubling as wings, the dragonlike head and tail, and hardened scales serving as body armor in the chest area. Though it may be hard to tell on this sketch, I also adjusted the legs to be less anthropomorphic, more reptilian. By this point, the only difference between the dracans' genders is that the males have a nose horn and the females do not -- much like my dragons. And judging by that, this one's a male.

I was originally planning to color and shade this in, but somewhere along the lines of school and other drawings I had forgotten to do so; here it is regardless, left as a reference/lineart drawing. It is also one of the very few drawings that I let my scanner actually "kill" (note the washout along the wing areas).

The ruler on the right edge measures the dracan's size in scale (no pun intended) feet. Though fierce in appearance, a dracan's body is no larger than the average human's! These are not creatures that would tower over you, or that you could easily look down at. They are intelligent beings that one could walk down a road and converse with.

It's interesing how I can talk so much and so long about a subject matter I've drawn so rarely. I've drawn dragons galore and a share of robots, and yet only a handful of these, the dragon-people, the dracans.
