I think the Labradorite dragons are my favourites of the birthday release, overall! I love their lore and seem like such underdogs and enigmas, reminding me of the Falmer in TES when it states they made a critical trade of their sight for prosperity (in this case, knowledge rather than survival, in the case of the Falmer.)

 

These good boys are going to make such great lineages! :)

Well, Falmers DO like to harm you tho, unlike Labradorite XD It's nice to have them and not those Chaurus breeder, my dear fellow Dovakiin

Adults!!

Here's the sketch I did for the Cloudplume, with a few edits made to accurately represent the final sprite:
FBrzCIs.png?1
Squishy toe beans. Yes.
 
Some tidbits:
-They'd love plushies. Hatchlings especially would absolutely adore them. I guess it'd be a stuffed doll in canon DC setting?
 
-The tail plumes and the two pairs of large feathers on their backs faintly shimmer with iridescence when the dragon is full of mana. It's a sort of surplus magic. I wonder if you can see a hint of it on the sprite?
 
-Their actual body is not really fat or bulky; the thick feather coat and air magic provides enough warmth, so they don't have much need for extra body fat.
 
-Always happy to provide snuggles for their friends. They love snuggles.
 
-This is what I imagine their size to be. It's a size chart for all of my released breeds.(pls excuse the doodle-ness)
T1001Mf.jpg?1
(all sizes can be changed in the future depending on changes to average DC dragon sizes or if I change my mind)
They're big enough to bury your hands in the feathers, or bury yourself in their floofiness. 
 
Finally, here's a portrait, in three different versions since floof shading is haard and I wasn't too happy with the result x'D

Feel free to ask me questions regarding the Cloudplumes! I love opportunities for more lore. :3

I say they are lovely indeed! I really like the shades of the sprite and how soft they look. Are they classifed as Eastern?

Wow, I like all of these quite a lot, especially the Amalthean and Alcedine.

These are all amazing! One of the best birthday presenta yet :D I think my favorites are the Labradorites.

 

My only comment is the female Jester's heads and necks are disproportionately huge. Compare them to the size of the arms and legs and the body, and then take a look at the male where it's well-proportioned. Really sticks out for me like a sore thumb :(

Ahhh they're all grown up all look so cool!!

Also, ALLICORN dragon!? Amalthean dragons are defiantly one of my favourites now- I want to make a breeding project with them (But what? PB?).

Same here! I immediately thought of doing a Amalthean - Soulpeace checker for a White-Hybrid lineage (if anyone could do a mockup, I'd be very grateful!)

I haven't quite finished their official artwork yet, but have a birthday card in the meantime!! 😁 (And yes, Amalthean is definitely a heavy reference to Lady Amalthea from the Last Unicorn-- but also the name Amalthea in general means "noble goddess" and is the name of the she-goat that nursed the god Zeus when he was an infant )

Thank you!! The card is awesome (love that expression on the Amalthean! Are those fangs I see????). 

 

Also, so happy I was able to get the reference to Lady Amalthea! Never knew the meaning or the Zeus story, though. Very Cool!

Niiiiicee to see Last Unicorn reference but also ;D Hazeh, we all know there's also some Shiny Ponyta/Rapidash influence. At the very least, that's gonna be a nickname lmao
