I wanted to make a dragon that completely puts aside the idea of the ender dragon. It is a dragon that really could be a unique animal species, and that could actually live in a fictional world. At the same time, it really should have the appearance of an end boss. I wanted to make it look dark and intimidating, and also give the impression that it is an ancient animal with legendary status.

I took inspiration from concept art of a dragon I have made earlier. It combines a crow, a boar and a rat with the shape of a lizard or dragon. The choice of animal inspiration symbolizes the theme or role it has. It is supposed to be a dragon that is pretty dark, stealthy, aggressive and nasty. It digs, and hides in caves during the day, and comes out of the ground at night to plunder cities to steal treasures and hunt for food.

This dragon, however, is a Minecraft reimagination of that dragon. The ender dragon can fly and lives in its own dimension. I gave it wings and removed the front legs, both to keep it somewhat similar to the fourlegged original design, but mainly to give it a more slim appearance, which I think fits well with the stealthy and dark character. Because the end is dark, the color of the feathers are also dark to make it blend in, I also made the neck and tail bald, similar to the neck of a vulture and the tail of a rat. The skin color is paler however to suggest it has been living in the end dimension for a long time and doesn't get any daylight.

I also took some inspiration from the giant ancient bird Roc to give it a more mythical appearance but combined it with the crow and other animals.

My original design for the dragon can be found on DeviantArt under the name of "Concept Art: Scavhra" if you're interested in the background.

- the back of the head looks like it is chopped off when you have the dragon head as a block or as a helmet.
- The eyes are supposed to light up, but I could not include the dragon_eyes.png
- The lower finger of the wing is lighter to compensate for the shadow on the underside of the model in-game

Love the style in the feathering and the face, I wasn't about to spend that much time on the wings with mine, but this is awesome.

Thanks! It was my first time making an ender dragon texture so I didn't really know what to expect in terms of how long it would take to make xD But I loved making it though and I'm happy with the result. Your dragon is really cool too, I love the theme and how clean the texture looks!

I could go onboard with this idea, although I hope you went for a realistic approach? Most wyverns tend to actually be dragons that's plausible IRL. I can understand this one if you're thinking of how the dinosaurs actually was more feather-y.

All in all. The texture's great and I love the beak, but I wouldn't really call it a wyvern myself.

Dragons have four legs while Wyverns have only two.

Yes, I know that. I just feel like this is more like a big griffin rather than a wyvern :D
