Orca Dragon Concept by Finchwing Orca Dragon Concept by Finchwing
Dragorca? Orcagon? I looked up the scientific names for orcas and dragons (couldn't really find one for dragons so I guess I lied, makes sense considering they didn't exist but anyway moving on) and I couldn't think of a cool name for this species. 

As you can probably tell, this guy was heavily influenced by Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon (whose sequel has yet to release in the UK) I just think Toothless' design is really rad, and his head shape as well as his body shape inspired this sort of orca/dragon hybrid.

I'm not entirely happy with this design so they're just concepts, there are things that I already want to change but I'll just change them in a later picture. I'll probably be drawing this guy more often to try to get the design right.

Designing characters is fun amiright

I wonder how many other people have come up with this idea- probably hundreds

I guess they aren't, this specific design maybe. I mean, I'm not the only one to think of an orca/dragon hybrid so I can't really claim it :P

HHHHH ITS SO CUTE! Also, I did some slight research and came up with Orcūjin. Basically it's a combination of the orca's scientific name and the name of the Japanese dragon god Ryūjin. I tried to make it's pronunciation and or-koo-gin, but it's not perfect. Idk just byjklvd,bchu I hope you like it

Oh yesss I need to drift away from the Toothless design though, there must be a way to maintain the orca-ish appearance but still make it cute n stuff cause y'know stuff has to be cute

Cool xd I was leaning more towards Orcon, probably because it sounds like some area on a game I used to play..:P

It's hard though! Names don't fall out of trees.
(Unless you want to name it after a fruit, looking under trees is useless.)
