“… Saw ADORBS the dragon is getting attention – how would he look with a mouth? :)”
And my response:
“… And I’m not sure; i have this nagging feeling it will adversely affect his cuteness. :P We can try it in the name of SCIENCE, though. :)”
So on the way home after the Game of Commander that Would Not End (it involved a delicate arrangement of artifacts, namely Trading Post, Myr Retriever, and Nevinyrral’s Disk, also known as “The Bullshit Machine”), I did some SCIENCE:
While doing these, I realized that I was getting farther and farther away from the original head shape, and the mouth was only exacerbating the situation- I started with the unfinished sketch on the right, then the two on the bottom left, then the two at upper left, working backwards towards how he first looked.
