I think your back legs have reverse knees... seems off.
Otherwise, really great use of color.

Myself, I like the reverse legs. It seems to make sense that a dragon would have legs more like a cat, built for springing into the air.

I agree with that, but these look like backward arms to me. Cats legs, have more of a wide rounded ton 1/3, and an extended foot past the ankle looking part. (i'm not a veterinarian...) it just seems off.

Yeah, they're drawn like arms, rather than in the form of legs as we're used to seeing them - I agree, it looks weird.

Of course, dragons aren't real anyway, so who's to say they can't/shouldn't look like this... ;)

I have to agree navy would be great and make those colors pop!

Nice job! I'm a sucker for dragons.

Especially ones that aren't soft and cuddly (like most designs here).
