Anónimo :how would u draw a dragon yawning? I cant seem to do it w/o making it look like they're roaring ;o
That’s a toughie.
The main difference between yawning and roaring are pretty slight and unnoticeable, but some of the characteristics are pretty much key points when it comes to the difference!
Ignore the shoddy sketches. Haha. They’re just here to make things a bit more clear.
A roaring drawing would likely do so to intimidate, or do a cool hierarchy thing. A roar is supposed to be ferocious. An intimidating stare combined with as many teeth bared as possible could do the trick! Be sure to show gums! Open that maw wide! As wide as possible! A dragon will show you what it’s got!
Also, pay attention to the tongue! It’s visible, but not sticking out.
A yawning dragon would likely not be interested in baring its teeth, although the upper teeth may be bared depending on its facial structure. After all, upper teeth are easily bared, even when smiling!
The lower lip is usually relaxed, not showing gums or whole teeth. Maybe just the pointy tips. Yawning isn’t about opening wide, but just wide enough to have a nice one.
Eyes are usually closed. Not always though! But it makes it easier to draw an actual yawn (to me, at least). If you want to draw the eyes open, keep them relaxed and not wide open. Yawns usually only affect the lower half of the face.
Most animals that are shown yawning also curve their tongue out for extra stretchy goodness.
Another important factor is a dragon’s posture. A roaring dragon, if not cornered, will likely make itself broad and stand wide. A yawning dragon would look silly doing so.
we’re making up ocs at art school. this is assmaster. the highlight of my career

How old is this photo.
Because it’s set up like Grandpappy sitting on the rocker telling the youngin’s about his youth.
But at this point in history it looks like one old guy took the only chair and made the rest of his elderly friends sit on the pavement because he’s the senior senior.
I don’t even care about the rest of this image, but check out that GBA SP
Just a comic from an RP~ Imperious and Cassius having a break from normal naughties to do something messier. I will be answering a few Caelia x Veritas questions tomorrow/tonight! I know they’ve been neglected as of late - I just felt like streaming commissions way more! Watch this space for more Gryphon x Pony.
(And if you feel inclined, let me know what you like about the comic <3)
