Ok, here's the redesign of the dragoness, now with a name.

First off, wonderful design work. I like the color scheme you've chosen for the character. It reads well, it's not overbearing, and shows more than a casual amount of attention was given to it, not something I've seen enough of from other artists.

The figure itself is strong in form and structure. Anatomically, there isn't much to gripe about. I do have a couple things which in the overall scheme, are mere nitpicks...

The 'hourglass' figure is something of a misnomer, I've come to understand, in that the figure never pinches at the waist from both sides at the same time. There is almost always a stronger direction towards which the waist will 'aim' and thus the narrowing is almost entirely from either from one side of the figure or the other, but never both. I did a quick examination, and it looks that because she's standing more chest out, that one continuous arc might define the right side of the figure from the chest to the hips. This should also give her a more supported look at the waist, and a more dynamic stance to boot. It's the little things... :)

A similar pinching occurs at her right wrist. Unless the pose requires that she have her hand flaring out and away from the body, the hand and lower arm can usually connect as one seamless arc, allowing the contour on the opposite side to form the narrow part of the wrist.

If you would like to see what this looks like visually, I did a redline that I have not uploaded that helped me to see these things more clearly. If you would like me to share it with you as an overlay, I would be happy to.

Very good job, and well done.

is this the same dragonness from how to date a dragon?

Yes and no. That storie, with the big dragoness became a little more serious, therefor, it was a bad idea to have a 3 meter high character in small places. I rewrote the 2 characters, but the old ones still exist on the "how to date a dragon" series, which you can see here: [link]

The redesign makes it easier to tell that she is a she...though it would be nice if she kept the wings also.
