Wow, that's a fantastic ref! Major props to you :)

By the way, is there any way to view her older sheets? It would be interesting to see how she evolved over time.

Mmm, all of her previous references are in storage but I do have plans to one day redraw all of her various versions side by side along with all the wacky height differences she underwent! (She shrunk so much, haha)

Brilliant ref sheet, it's very well organized, there's a bunch of info and still it's easy to read. Your Sardiryx is so magnificent and lovely, the way You made her shows all the effort You put into this character. And it's good to know that such creatures exist.

Bla. I dont think Ive even commented on this yet XD Oh lazy Sez!
Awh, she is such a handsome birdie <3 My favourite features of her were always her microraptor-like feathered feet and her feathered arms ^^ So I'm glad you kept these features. I am liking the more realistic anatomy of the legs now rather than those traditionally very long biped-dragon ones everyone always seems to draw raptors with XD And her new comb, is adorable <3
Smaller sheet! Much easier to read too ;D love it!

Oooh thank you, Sez! Always happy to read your comments!
I agree about her feet and arms -- they're there to stay permanently, Sardi definitely wouldn't feel right without them. Microraptor all the way! c:
And as much as I love long, elegant legs on bipedal dragons because of their avian quality they just don't work on Sardi, but I love seeing them on others' dragons! Sardi's more of a pocket-rocket with those muscled haunches of hers. I wanted to portray her as being more grounded since she's often scavenging on the ground when she's not in the sky and really needs the get-up-and-go when a venator comes a-knockin'. So.. shorter legs and big thighs. c:
Sardi's a bit clumsy when it comes from jumping from limb to limb in the trees anyway. As for comb - she doesn't have a comb (flesh) she has crests (hard keratin) and they're the same as the last ref, I just took her horns away! c:
