Realistic Telephone Ref Sheet by CanineHybrid Realistic Telephone Ref Sheet by CanineHybrid
Edit 5/7/2016: Added a size chart!

*flailing intensifies* I couldn't be happier to finally show you the results of a project I have been working on for so long: I am very proud to reveal the official realistic Dutch Angel Dragon anatomy guide and reference sheet for Telephone!

Ino and I have been working closely together on this to best represent her vision for what the species and her character was meant to be and I hope that you all find it useful for your own characters and artwork too. Feel free to ask if you have any questions! I also highly encourage those interested to learn more about it to check out the website I helped create for the community as well: www.dutchangeldragons.com



This project was actually started over a year ago during one of Ino's streams where I began attempting to draw and understand the kind of anatomy Ino had envisioned for her species. As I have been involved from the very beginning of the species introduction to the public, I have found there to be a lack of understanding or appreciation for Ino's Dutch Angel Dragons for what they truly are and were always meant to be: horse-like dragons.

Many people, including myself were sucked in to this whole thing because of PhoenixWolf's adorable chibi fursuit style and Ino's outstanding performance as the bouncy, squeaky critter we all know and love today... but most people have not had the chance to recognize that there is a whole other side to the development of this character and its world, so my goal is to help bring many of these unique attributes of Ino's creation into the spotlight in my role as an admin for the community. I hope that this can encourage more versatile styles of artwork in the fandom for Dutch Angel Dragons as well since there will now be an accurate representation of what "the real thing" looks like to aid others for drawing inspiration from a more standardized source, as opposed to becoming too stuck using the popular chibi-like styles as some kinds of standard or reference for the species... as those kinds of representations should remain unique to individual artists and their styles, in helping to avoid teetering over the edge to any plagiarism. The community as a whole relies entirely on various artistic mediums in order to flourish, so the respect and admiration of artists and their unique contributions to this species I wish to continue to be celebrated and encouraged as much as possible.

That being said, no, you cannot trace/copy my drawings either ;) but please do use it to assist in your anatomy studies and improved understanding of a horse-inspired dragon character!


[And last but not least, I will also be announcing information shortly for commissioning me to modify this reference sheet into your own unique Dutch Angel Dragon character too!]

I understood from the beginning when I watched the panel from one of the cons that Dutch Angel Dragons were equine based. This is a great official image. I see the spirit of Dutch in it.  Well done. :-)

I swear I'm going to cry from how beautiful this is. I can so vividly see these majestic creatures soaring through the clouds. The artwork as a whole is a delight to look at with all the detail, and especially the wings are simply amazing! Kudos to you for brightening my day with your wonderful art. ^-^

Gaah it's so nice to see this! I really hope to see more beautiful horse-like DADs going around now. I really adore the species when they are horse-like more than the "fursuit style" or canine-like anatomy everyone draws (not that it's bad, they're still adorable! I just like the true vision of them more). And you did a wonderful job! Your horse-fusion anatomy is fantastic! And all those details XnX

Fantastic job <3

Yeeeey! :dummy: I'm thrilled you like how it turned out! It was certainly a challenge to get everything just right but it has a great response so far.
I really can't wait to see the kinds of new art that pop up for the species. No more "everything's a dog" hopefully XD

This is a great reference guide! I just made my own D.A.D last weekend (I'm still working on mine ^^') but I'll probably look at this and redo mine to make sure it fits the species. :)

I have to say that I just love the way you captured the beauty of both the species and the character itself, it looks just bloody beautiful :'D I could say majestic (because it is) but that would be just too light to describe the beauty of this picture :meow:
