So this service is free, because I certainly don't need the money. I have most of it anyway. But I would very much like to get as many of these done as possible.
I don't have an example, other than the pictures I currently have of Mel
. But I'm imagining a much closer view just up on the dragons' faces. Like Mel's in the top third or so of his picture, only larger and possibly with a nice little border or something.
But on to how to apply for one of these. First, take a minute to really think about your dragon's face and head. The proportions you want. Then you tell me what you see. In order that I know exactly what you mean, I have a form. It's kind of large. Hopefully all the sections should be explanatory, but if you have questions, you're welcome to ask. You can add in as much detail as you want. Because otherwise I'll be taking artistic liberty.

For example, my boys:
Dragon Name & Color: Night Melanthioth
Length of Head Compared to Girth: The head is long for its width, but both dimensions are considerable
Length of Muzzle Compared to Head: The muzzle makes up the majority of the head's length. In fact, if it was normally proportioned, the rest of his head would be as well
Overall Shape of the Head: It is pointed from neck to nose, with little definition between forehead and nose
Roundness of Head/Cheeks: There is only as much roundness as is needed in living things
Roundness of Muzzle: ... None?
Pronouncement of Bone Structure: Mostly in his brows and his jaw, where it is quite sharp
Length/Shape of Headknobs: They're not very long, but thick at their bases and pointed like horns
Thickness of Neck Compared to Head: The neck is very thick, but his head is big enough that it doesn't look silly
Approximate Start of Neckridges: Halfway between headknobs and eyeridges
Approximate Shape of Neckridges: Rough, macabre waves that curve back too far
Size/Shape of Teeth: Long and pointed like spikes, and barely contained by his lips
Size of Eyes Compared to Head: Not very large, a bit on the small end
Nose Design: Slits on either side of his muzzle that flare when he breathes in
Eye Shape: They're most often slivers, and look angry generally regardless of his mood
Hide Texture: Smooth, but not soft. More like polished marble than suede
Size of Mouth: Large, and his lips have a smirk to them
Base Color HEX Code: 000011
Markings & their HEX Colors: Random Stars that fade down his neck: CCCCDD
Expression: Proud, Haughty, Dangerously cheerful and smug. He looks like a cat about to eat the mouse trapped in a corner that's enjoying the terror of his prey
Eye Color(s): A mixture of red and dark blue, avoiding purple as much as possible. He's being violent, but he's enjoying it.
Description of Pose from Shoulders Up: His head is raised so that the neck is about directly beneath his head, which is facing about 5 o'clock from the viewer's perspective. His head is situated above the viewer, and tilted down slightly to his right so that he can look down on his audience.
