Ember - Dragons Dont Do Reading by viwrastupr Ember - Dragons Dont Do Reading by viwrastupr
Ember's correspondence with Twilight is going quite well.

While a lot of the fandom seems to focus on the dragon lord aspect or the parallels to some anime tropes in Ember's character I was rather caught by the idea of the dragon nerd.

This piece will be available as a print at EFNW! Hope to see you there. If not you can always see my art early and keep me fed on patreon: www.patreon.com/viw

Hehehehehe.  Whoever said dragons don't read?  My elementary school mascot was a dragon who had a book in its claw, so there's no such thing as a dragon who doesn't read.

Dear Ember, heed these words. "Don't knock it till you try it."

Dragons ought to read more. Perhaps that'll give them a chance to learn something for once and become a proper civilization, instead of just remaining the same damn greedy and violent monsters they always had been, going about burning, plundering and destroying everything.

That'd be a cool side of Ember to see.

I love how "Puns" is written by M.A. Larson

I'd think Discord would know more about destruction than Princess Luna, maybe he wrote a different book.

"Apples, Apples, and Apples". Gee, I wonder who wrote that one.

She'd probably love the movie then, seeing it's very pro-dragon. :D

Let's just hope she doesn't read the Equestrian version of "The Hobbit". Things might get kind of awkward.

You're one of the few. I like this aspect you brought of her. I'm sure she would devour those books one by one seeking knowledge and comprehension of the world she lives in.

Of course, in exchange she would answer any question Twilight would ask her about the lives of dragons.

Awesome work. That's a much proper anatomy.

I hope your learning some nice M.A. Larson puns, Ember.

I love this art but honestly, the books' titles are probably my favorite part of this. Also the authors of the books as well XD
The shading is great on this and the way you made the light effect the color of Ember's wings (Like real bat wings) is amazing. Great job, as usual!

Hmm... Trying to decipher what the japanese book says. As far as I'm aware, ロ doesn't exist with the little circle thingy (only the h-line does), but assuming you meant to write ドラゴンポニ it says Dragonpony.
