it also seems the the female's body size might be larger also the chin is just the chin the female doesn't have the chin spike like the male she has fewer spikes on the chin the male also has more spike on it the females horns are also different then the males the female has more spikes on her jaw also
1) Nose ridge in males is more heavily defined than females. 2) Males have longer chin spikes, which tend to be bare of red scales, unlike females. 3) The spikes lining the back of the lower jaw are thicker and fewer in males than females, and females' spikes tend to be pigmented near the end. 4) Males' chest scales, horns and spikes lean closer to silver than tan, as they do for females. 5) Tiger-stripes tend to be more numerous and more clearly defined in males than females. 6) Hair/(tendrils?) behind the ears of females, whereas males have none. 7) Horns are smoother in females than males.
To be fair, a lot of those could be explained away by age/individual deviation. Except for the hair/tendrils.
Slight differences in the pattern of ridges on their main horns, spikes on the 'beard' for males, tendrils for the female, and slightly different patterns of stripes on the neck. Also a reddening on the tips of the smaller horns for the female. The scales on the central facial ridge come to points for the male. In general, the male seems to be pointier than the female.
In general, the features of the female are smoother, but besides the tendrils the differences are a bit subtle. Unless you were familiar with the differences or saw them side by side like this, it would be hard to tell them apart from a brief glance. The odds of someone getting a chance to get a better look is of course directly proportional to the dragon's mood and general temperament.
I rather like this level of attention to detail. It makes a work feel more real and vivid.
The female has more twisted and smoothed head horns as well as all her horns have a hint of red in them. The male has more jagged looking head horns and scales, as well as a more torn neck fin and side frills. The male also has more jagged scales going from the nose all the way up to about half way up the top of the neck fin, he also has more spikes. However the female has blue tipped tentrels coming down, one backwards strip at the bottom of the pic, and she is lighter in color then the male.
Well i find a few things that are different between these two, based on these pictures alone. -Female has tendrils behind her ear -The jaw horns are different, Female has more of them, male only has three -Chin horns are different. -The two main horns, females are curved/twisted upward -Horns on the female's fade into a different color at the tips. -The noes is smoother on the females, behind the noes horn -Chest plates seem different, more pointed on the females -And the female just looks prettier then the male XD
That's all i can see that is different between the two
The main things I notice are different colors and shades. The male has more spikes, except around the eyes. And the female has those long red gold and blue strands of hair. Around the chin the jaw, the female has more spikes, or feathers, whole the male has large spikes. I notice things being different shapes. like the hornes, and the spinal fin thing seems larger on the female. All that and the different colors are what I notice.
Seeing as I own the D&D Draconomicon book, I can put this in. Now that I note that the female in specific is the only one of the female reds to have the tendrils that throws that out. I noted that the chin, and back jaw horns are less pronounced then the males and aren't as thick.
Female: The horns twist rather then have the spiked ridges. Also smaller cheek horns infront of frills. A softer profile on the ridges between the horns and face. Chin horns are smaller. The females usually tend to be darker / have more purple/red or be a more blood color then males.
Male: More defined chin horns, larger as ell. Crest ridges along the face are more plated / bony as well as the under eye horns are thicker and a bit longer. Also the jawline has a stronger feel to it. Check bones before frill are thicker. Horns on top of the skull have a spiked ridge rather then the 'twist or curl' of the female. Also males tend to lack the high lighted blues or purples that can be found on females.
Ah come on. You may call the androgynous dragon Zizzie Horizon. It would be a skipper of stars, a flush of feathers, a dominant cretin of higher aesthetic standards. Zizzie could criticize the other dragons for their sub-standard attempts at flight.
