Whoa! This could DEFFINATELY hold it's artistic own with The Legend/Secret/Children of Mana and Final Fantasy Tactics series' artworks (particularly the "Legend of Mana" piece by Ouroporos and Legend of Mana -- Pokiehl the Storyteller Lil' Cactus/Heroine pic)!
The wing span, the expressive eyes, the cross between "fur" and "feathers", the reverse zebra-esque stripes...... it creates an overall impressive pic when added together. And to kick in a quick bio ON this chara. puts a little interest in the book itself (which is a great way to get viewers interested in the books if your a fan yourself).
Finally, a nice HONEY-COLORED background of swirls to top off the art of the Honey DRAGON.
Incredible fantasy dragon art!
