Pine Drake by Nightblue-art Pine Drake by Nightblue-art
Done for creature of the week (Metamorphosis "Ugly To Beauty") at conceptart.org. In photoshop, 6-8 hours.

Moment after hatching, the pine drake hooks itself onto the branches of a pine tree with the strong claw on its tail. The hatchling is virtually defenseless and immobile, and relies on blending in with its surroundings to survive. It lures insects with its scented colorful tongue and captures them with the tongue's sticky tip. The hatchling typically sheds 7 times over the course of two years. The last shedding yields a fully-developed adult with functional wings and smooth skin.

The Pine Drake is not actually a type of dragon. It got its common name from its appearance.
