Thar be dragons in these parts

I've wanted to draw a dragon during this month-long experiment for a while now and today I finally acted upon that impulse. The idea was to make it look somewhat realistic (at least more than my usual work) but it didn't quite pan out. The head was a good start but it quickly went downhill from there and things become less detailed and more cartoony. I also shamefully admit to phoning in those rocks. 

Overall, this piece did not turn out how I wanted (this seems be a recurring sentiment) but, to paraphrase what others have said, you need to get the thousands of crappy drawings out of you before you get to the good stuff.
