Boyd’s Forest Dragon / Artwork by Jason A. Muckley © 2022

It has been awhile since I did any sketches. This little guy was inspired from a photo I saw on Unsplash by David Clode.

The reptile is called a Boyd’s Forest Dragon.

Here’s the first line in wikipedia describing it:

Boyd’s forest dragon (Lophosaurus boydii) is a species of arboreal lizard in the family Agamidae. The species is native to rainforests and their margins in the Wet Tropics region of northern Queensland, Australia.

Not only does Australia have really cool animals like kangaroos, wallabies, Tasmanian devils, koalas, emus, but they have dragons too! And a really amazing coral reef with all kinds of amazing undersea creatures in it.

I found this cool blog post about them from Andrew Kathriner called, Dragons of the Daintree.

What do you think of my sketch? Did you find the picture that David Clode took on his Unsplash page that I used as source material for my drawing?
