I like it, but I think it might look better on another color shirt.

Yeah, the wings are hard to make out.

I do like the idea though.

My colored box^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H qube has turned dark red^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H brown. I don't really need to show off a list of everything I've wooted anymore, do I?

I think it's great except the wings don't stand out enough... which means it takes more than one glance to see it's a baby dragon instead of some strange snake thing jumping out of the egg...

You might experiment with different coloured wings instead of changing the shirt colour.

Re: Maternal Instincts

It's a beautiful design. And as is often said "science is stranger than fiction". There are examples of this very behavior in nature from so-called parasite birds. They lay their eggs in other birds' nests and the host mother cares for them and feeds them. In the case of the cow bird the eggs hatch earlier than the eggs of the host birds and often the chicks grow faster and bigger, pushing the other eggs or babies of the host mother out of the nest. I have the sneaking suspicion a dragon baby would be even more aggressive and roast it's "siblings" before feeding on them.

Greatest song ever written about JFK here. NSFW... or children... or anyone who's offended by the idea that JFK might have been a robot... fair warning.
