Would you be able to make these of Pern dragons based off of a description? Here are the descriptions. Let me know if you think it'd be doable because I'll get two if it is. ^^ Thanks so much!

Sensual Serenity Green Jeibeth (Inspiration: Inara in Firefly)
A wash of pale, tea-green sisal clothes this poised dragon in fluid lines, the loveliest of distractions from the subtle capability beneath. The most jaded artist might find inspiration in the way she wears her wings, as ready to fan shut in evocative reproof as to flutter to their widest span, inviting only those winds she chooses to have their way with her translucent sails. Those wingsails have a shimmer to them when unveiled, embroidered with subtly darker green where ichor curves just beneath the surface, tipped with the same silvery shade that adorns the talons of strong yet graceful paws. Though her proportions are harmonious, from the delicate cup of her muzzle to the sensual curve of her tail, she owes nothing to corsetry but only to the fine bones of her heritage combined with the way she carries herself: elegant yet earthy, aware of her own worth, complete to the bright, charismatic wit displayed in those large rainbowed eyes.

Bloodletter's Bonfire Gold Iskiveth (Inspiration: Iskierka of the Temeraire books)
Though tiny, a thin and sinuous beast, there's only fire in this brilliant gold, from the tip of a pointed, scorched muzzle to the whipping tail behind her. Her headknobs steal the yatagan's distinctive recurve, swooping over a crooked outcrop of spiky neckridges that look quite inhospitable to riding, their tips seared as though by living sparks. Along her narrow sides, her color may brighten to treasure's true gold, but those ruddy touches show up again on otherwise white-hot wingspars and tiny paws that always look like they've been playing in blood. Everything about her is sharpened into daggers, from the lethal array of charcoal talons on every foot to the bony wings edged in ichor-green. With a proud arch to her neck and eyes like embers, she's a fearsome creature, less regal queen than simply awful.

I admit those descriptions do little to help me as they're very literary and don't do much by way of describing the actual color or shape of the dragon, but perhaps we can make this work.

While I'm not familiar with Pern dragons, a google search has led me to these images. Do they look like these shape-wise?

For the first one, I'm not sure what "sisal clothes" means, if this dragon is one that's clothed or if it's more "feral" and is just a tea green color with darker green wing webbings?

For the second one, I'm picturing golden, with slightly lighter sides, darker tips of the horns/spikes, red feet.

Please forgive me if this is way off, but I'm a very visual person :)

I'm pretty visual, too, so I totally understand that!

The first one has always confused me a little bit (I didn't write them) but the sisal isn't meant literally, so she's not actually wearing anything. My take on her is that she's tea green with the darker green wing veins that kind of look like embroidery in her sails. I tend to see her bony points kind of highlighted by silver but that might be too much detail for these purposes. xD

The second sounds about right, yup. She's pointy. I think her muzzle is a little darker, too.

As for Pernese dragons in general, here's a kind of cute-ish style, too. ^^


This one is from one of the covers and it's one of my favorite depictions of a Pernese dragon.

They're naturally nocturnal so built in torchbeams can only be a good thing :D

I forgot to mail you back to say how much I love the little fella!


Are you keeping an open list on these? I am tempted to take out a second minifat commission at the end of the month!
