Polar by Finchwing Polar by Finchwing
I created some new characters the other day whilst playing with creature design, and here's one of em O: His eyes are frozen and he has kinda ice antler things
Designs are still being played with so it's not final o:


They're both sorta cat/hare/dragon creatures of similar species but live in different regions, one living in the Polar seas and the other living in Pantropical seas. I didn't know what to call them so they're just Polar and Pantropical for now.

Here's what they look like!

It's really pretty, especially his eyes and the kinda ice-antlers, but is it just me or is the muzzle at the wrong angle compared to the rest of the face?

jesuschristifeellikeimgonnacomeacrossreallyrudebycommentingthisqAqimsosorryifIdo

I'marealsuckerforevolutionyOU DONT EVE NKNOW

I absolutely love this design!
Also I saw from earlier comments that you love adding evolutionary input in your designs anD I LOVE THAT ABOUT YOU
I see so many people making winter creatures with the thinnest coat and the longest ears honestLY
Since I saw that this was a winter dragon, I'd like to clarify what features an accurate winter creature should have. Before you read any further though, I'd like to note something; I'm NOT saying you should completely make-over your design. I'm only feeding this brain-food for the future, in-case you don't know what to do for a creature made to live in cold climates. Now that I've finished clearing that up, you can read on knowing that I don't want anything to do with changing your design to make me feel better. (Not that I felt bad in the first place COUGH)

Anyways, if we're talking really cold and windy climates, like, blizzard level cold and windy, thin coats, long & pointy af ears, thin and lanky builds, and short fur - no fur are not the best ideas.

You see these pictures of dogs?
justusdogs.com.au/wp-content/u…

They were all bred to withstand the harsh weather of the mountains. All of them were bred in different places, but they have the same features. The three F's; fluffy, fat, and floppy(ears). The bulky build probably has fat to act as some sort of blubber. The long fur is obvious; to withstand the cold (they probably have an undercoat as well--) and bent ears to shield them from the wind and cold. If these features weren't on the dogs, the mountains would probably KILL them in a matter of days. Frostbite is a permanent thing, and you do not want that on your creature; it's also really painful. Floppy ears are to shield the inside of the ear from any wind and cold, therefor preventing frostbite. This also goes for the rest of the body. So a bulky build, long fur (or, if it's a bird, something similar to a penguin) and floppy ears would do nicely for an average arctic/mountainous/cold weather mammal. If using dogs as an example isn't enough, just look up cold weather animals on google. None of them are long, lanky, thin or slender in any way. (I kept scrolling down and pictures of dogs with thin coats in the snow started to appear and I just was like 'nO PUT YOUR CAMERA DOWN AND SAVE THAT THING BEFORE IT DIES FROM HYPOTHERMIA--)

Again, I'm not targeting your dragon. Dragons are magic; they can have whatever they want and still survive in polar regions, I don't really mind XD. But this is just to clear things up for the future, like I said. I hope this advice helped in any way; also, thanks for making it this far!
