The Sock Dragon by LyntonLevengood The Sock Dragon by LyntonLevengood
Hello, Feels like ages since I uploaded something new, been really busy. This is just something that consumed me the last few days.

Dragons, they have become rare in our day and age. They live secretive lives and the chances of seeing one are slim to none. Many of the great dragon species have perished.

This however is one of the little ones who have quietly endured even to the present day. The Emerald tree dragon or (Sock Dragon). Like all dragons the desire to horde treasure is overwhelming. However the lack of hordes of gold and jewels makes it difficult. This species has come to appreciate a different kind of treasure. This answers one of the biggest questions I have each day. Where do all my socks get off too? :)

Thanks so much for all the favs:)

Thank you for the DD! I'm truly Honoured. I hope that this image can help to raise awareness of the plight of this rare species of dragon:) Seriously, thanks so much!

i like it :) i like his surprised look, it's as if he wonders if it's weird that he likes socks (why are they looking at me as if it's weird?) and i like the way the tail lies on the tree :)

understood. Personally, I bet the trolls are going after gloves and mittens. I haven't been able to find a left-hand glove in so long...

It's all the dragon's fault, really. He's inspired a trend.

Ha ha ha, thanks for the comment:) It was a big surprise to me too that Dragons were behind this. Until now trolls have had the bad reputation ;) I blame the lack of gold treasure around, dragons got to make do with what they can find:)

wtf---HEY THAT'S MINE!!! GIMME!!

*begins furiously trying to retrieve various articles of clothing, with no success*

yanno, this really does explain how I can never find a matching pair of socks when I am frantically searching through my drawers every morning approximately 5 minutes before I need to rush down my really effing long driveway to school. There are probably entire corporations dedicated to replacing all of the socks, bras, and boxers that your green terror has pilfered over the years *glares at dragon*

What even. Of course. An underwear-hoarding dragon. Absolutely.

He is adorable. This is a wonderful, funny idea and you've done a great job managing all of that green. The way you've done the focus is also wonderful, as if this were actually a photograph instead of a painting. The dragon's relaxed posture is well-executed with the wing draped over the branch and the crossed forelimbs. Excellent work!

My cousin and I were looking through dragons (she's trying to learn to draw and I, not being an accomplished artist myself, decided we'd look up deviantart dragons) and we just loved this dragon. The unique look and feel and... it's just adorable while being reptilian. I just wanted to mention that she loved it so much she wanted to draw it, and while she didn't do a phenomenal job, it did inspire her... so I wanted to thank you for that. Freaking awesome Dragon :D
