Finally finished! Some personal art I dove into last night and today. I was super motivated to get it done! :D I stuck very close to MANY references. Used one in particular for the color scheme. I know Draco appears more 'brown' in the movie, but that's boring, so I went with more color. And blah to backgrounds. Anything I would have done probably would have ruined the piece. :(

I made him 'anthro' here, but I guess he doesn't look anthro enough. I do love the way Draco looks normally in the movie, don't get me wrong, but an anthro Draco was always something I wanted to try. :) And yes, he looks like a normal Draco rearing up on his hind legs, if you want to consider it that way. ;) But I made his arms and legs significantly longer than they are normally. Maybe later I'll make a normal version of him on all fours next, but in the meantime, yaaaaaaay!

Originally this was supposed to be just a simple coloring too, but I got too obsessed! :D

Great work :D But wasn't his chest a little more bulky-looking?

His chest is covered up by the ribbon anyway.

I like it, I think the proportions are just right.  It looks like he could walk on all fours or just his hind legs just as easily, which is a cool idea.
