Welsh Gwiber – Sketch

The word “gwiber” in Welsh means viper or adder but many centuries ago the word actually meant “flying snake”. Gwiber’s were believed to have once been snakes but have turned into dragons. They live in caves close to river banks or lakes, praying on fish and occasionally livestock. They were considered to be very poisonous and if bitten by one the bite would prove fatal within a few hours.
This is a quick sketch illustration for my masters dissertation that I am currently writing on the history of the Welsh Dragon. I really liked this sketch and felt I should upload it ^^’, I might move it to scraps eventually if it doesn’t get any attention lol.

….. And some digital sketches for a tattoo commission I am working on currently…
