Heres by Capukat Heres by Capukat

Last Update: December 15, 2013
His first design (his second was pretty much that but with edits, this is the third and final draft :3)
His original name was also Heron, for the bird he was inspired by. But he doesn't really resemble one anymore lol..

Full Name: Heres Mesfelia

-6 stripes on each side TECHNICALLY but you see '7' because of the half stripe in the middle of his back!
-The tip of his tail (not the feather) isn't rounded. In fact there is no one tip, it is split into two. There is only one tailbone, but the fur is parted in opposite directions if that makes sense.
-His anatomy in a sense is foxlike. But with drastic changes as well. His hind legs are incredibly muscular and the tailbone and spine in general has increased in size and density to accommodate for the massive tail. Legs are fairly short in general and Heres is definitely more stocky. His neck is longer in proportion as well.
-I had designed his eye colors to be a dusky-violet (even though it is closer to maroon right now) and a silvery orange. Just a tip while shading :3

-He is quite reserved and quiet; very agile and light-on-his-paws type of guy despite his sheer size and weight
-His uneven eyes never fail to dishevel those who meet his gaze

-The three large feathers on his tail are his species male trait that is meant to be an attractive factor for females. They mate for life. Different females will be attracted to different plumage so there really is no one that outshines any other in general --it is all subjective. Of course that isn't the determining factor, they are a highly intelligent species and the tail tip only matters as much as outward appearance does to you and I. To some it matters more, and others it doesn't at all C:

Otherwise, I love how he came out!

He has a 'flight' form where the 'wing' markings on his back actually extend out as full wings. (Along with miscellaneous anatomical changes) 
I'll post that at some point and probably just add it to this ref c:

This is a sketchy reference but I spent like ugh.. forever on it XD Mostly debating over certain designs in certain places~

Name: Heres (Pronouced: "HEH-rez")
Gender: Male
Height: 5 feet (shoulder)
Weight: 412 lb
Age: 174 years (human equivalent of 27)
Birthday: December 1 (year of 1838..? technically..)
Species: Dex (my own species of a hybrid between mainly a fox of sorts and any dragon)

Created 12/25/11 South Korea Time.
btw, I do NOT live in South Korea, I was on vacation when I first came up with his design. I saw a heron on TV and was like oh! That's such a pretty bird *doodle, doodle*
