Did you know that the the word “dragon” is derived from the Greek word “drakōn” which was used to describe a large Snake?
“In general, in the Middle Eastern world, where snakes are large and deadly, the serpent or dragon was symbolic of the principle of evil…The dragon’s form varied from the earliest times. The Chaldean dragon Tiamat had four legs, a scaly body, and wings, whereas the biblical dragon of Revelation, “the old serpent,” was many-headed like the Greek Hydra.”
No one knows why Dragons came to be regarded as fire breathing but anyway I think they look cool. I chose to do my Dragon with wings like in the Book of revelation, next time I may try to draw it with seven heads but to keep it simple I did only one head for now. Check it out:
