Morkeleb the Black and Jenny by Nashiil Morkeleb the Black and Jenny by Nashiil
An old sketch from around 12yrs ago of Barbra Hambly's character Morkeleb the Black and his wizard friend Jenny (who is shown in her dragon form from the end of Dragonsbane). I tried to draw him according to the descrption in the book, so I added the antennae that everyone seems to forget about. It's wrinkled and smudged, but I had to put it up. He is one of my all time favorite dragons! All hail the star drake!

Materials: sketch book paper, graphite drawing pencils

Beautiful picture, the shading and highlights are wonderfully done!

The books are superbly written I think, not much compares nowadays.

I created my own rendition some years ago [link]

Thank you very much! He is probably my favorite dragon, and Hambly's vision of dragons was incredibly unique.

Definately, especially how she portrays the wisdom and mysticism of the ancient dragons , i.e. Morkeleb in contrast of how the other races, humans in particular view the dragons.

Totally. I hope I can come up with something like that. I'm writing a small story of my interpretation of the Silver and Gold Dragon. If you want to check it out. Here's what I have up so far. Tell me what you think? Please? [link] [link]
