I don't have any fancy art for the Astaari (yet) but i have some fun facts if you want that [..... ]

Awsome! 

I was just about to ask if they have something in common with Taurus. 

It's my zodiac sing, so I guess just go and start collecting more 😍  

So there are not chubby ponies but crazy starry calves 😜😍😍😍

The blue line and pose is so confusing or is it just me? 

If you look at other gender it should come down in the middle of the tail from both wings here is just from the one facing us? 😷

The adults look lovely. :) I like the Skystriders more; I might have to get another breeding pair sometime later.

Ooh! Need more! (Funny how birds can be considered insects from the dragon perspective, or is it just another meaning of a common word of which I'm unaware... XD)

Nice.

I love how only ancient trees will do for the Skystriders to sleep in.

Ooh, they're both interesting adults! Can't wait to get my set of these guys completed.

Thanks for the release, TJ and spriters!

I noticed the same thing. It should go down the side, under the smaller wings. I like the species but it definitely looks weird! Wonder why it didn't get caught pre-release?

It’s an intentional dimorphic difference just like the spikes where it splits under the first wing and goes over the back.  There should perhaps be a second split leading to the other side but it looked weirdly straight during production.

Hmm, I think I like the Astaarus better even though I was expecting to prefer the Skystriders.

The male Skystrider is definitely one of my favorites, but I just can't resist starry dragons so the Astaarus has my heart as well XD

I agree the stripe looks kind of weird. We should definitely be seeing the “v” it makes from the left wing as well. (Unless they have asymmetrical markings?

Personally, I like the lack of a split in the image (asymmetrical markings for the win). But that's just me...

 

Also, am I the only one thinking the Astaarus dragons would look good with the Hellfires given that both have the gender color dimorphism?

I thought that when I first saw the gendered hatchlings. :D

 

I love these dragons! yet another awesome edition to the cave! 

 

btw, since more than a few people were calling the Starry dragon eggs doughnuts I have claimed the names:

- Starry Doughnut

- Glazed Galaxy

- Krispy Cream Milky Way

- Sprinkled Star Dust

Oh pretty Taurus Star Dragons! So cool :)

And I love the spike-ness of the Skystriders, especially the male!

I'm glad it's bothering someone else besides me. 

 

Especially if you compared how the same line is depicting on the male.

 

What looks like is happening is that the cyan stripes start under the wings, before migrating to the back of the female dragon.

 

BUT, then I would expect a second line coming from the other side, and uniting at the middle. 

 

Unless, there is only one stripe located on the right side of the body, which is weirdly asymmetric.

- Doodles how I think it looks like from a pure Side view:

This is going to bother me forever now.

 

In other news, They all look lovely. Though I think I prefer the Astaarus.

 

Which I still haven't caught yet.

 

Weh.

 

Edit: Because I missed this-

Ah okay.

 

Still bothers me though...

As far as the stripe design goes, I look at it this way: Not all things in nature are even when it comes to markings and patterns. it could be used as a warning and a camouflage. To me, it's not a bother. It just makes them more unique. :wub:
