nice job there! i cant really see anything too obvious with it other than lack of shading. the only addition i can suggest is making the red part TC. i dont have much to say, soi'll leave the feedback for it to more experienced artists, keep making art, you are badass :D

Shadow I did not draw specifically. I think more needs to be done, before the dragon will be finished. Now I'm doing the version with the wings, see what happens.

It's very nice, but there is not much here that makes me think of water other than the color. If you put several fins on it though, it would be clear.

OK, here is a variation with wings (in my opinion, it is worse)

In my opinion, it's better :D

The ghost looks cool as well!

I think the anatomy of the dragon looks strange. The distance from arms to legs if to big. I guess it would look more natural if it either only wings and no legs or if you make the body thicker, like the firedragon.

I guess that is a chinese dragon. They have long body and short legs.

The first water dragon/serpent looks nice, just might want to make the neck less straight, and more curved like the stomach is. The winged version has some good aspects (the wings are not bad, on their own), but the overall anatomy is odd. It seems to be walking on its wrists.

Hi doofus! As for the winged version, I focused on the anatomy of dragons from Skyrim. Look at the image they move on land as well. In my opinion, this is logical.

Another version of demon (most likely, I won't use this sprite) and a hell of a droid (robot? Angryeye?)
