So, I think I've established that I like dragons! Not surprisingly then, when a fabulous link popped up in the Inked Adventures facebook timeline, I downloaded it straight away. A chap going by the name of Sirrob had turned the sketch by Inked Adventures' one-man creativity machine, Billiam Babble (or Will Meddis, depending on how you know him online):

As you can see, we left off some of the fiddly dorsal spines, and shifted the legs so they could be zoomed around with appropriate roaring sounds rather than hung up and admired. I was then rather geekily proud when they asked me "Are you sure these are dragons, Daddy? They only have one pair of legs, so aren't they wyverns?"
I have taught them well!
