Dutch Angel Dragon with Holographic Horns

This Dutch Angel Dragon head was made using an expanding foam head base which was cast using Flex Foam It 5. It was built upon an Ed Head which has a 23" head circumference. Premium fur and minky from Big Z Fabrics and Mendel's was used throughout it's construction. Batik fabric lined head. Resin teeth molded and cast by me. Beautiful holographic horns are of a pleather type material so they are sturdy but flexible. Ears are made of EVA foam, shaped out with upholstery foam, and are attached firmly to the head base. 3D printed eyes designed and printed by me. They are edged in black with golden glitter. Vision is great though the glittery, hand painted Buckram. Ventilation is excellent due to the high roof of the mouth as well as nostrils that go all the way through. Plenty of room to add a fan if you so desire. 

If the auction hits $, I will add in a custom made pair of fully lined paws with claws that match the horns. The winner of the auction will need to let me know how they would like their paws sized and designed.

(Sorry for the length! I didn't realize I had so much to say!)

Ah, so here were are surrounded by these creatures known as "angel dragons". The chirping furballs that have been spreading like a virus through the furry fandom. You probably know it's all because the Telephone suit was too gosh-darn cute for its own good and everyone had to have one just like itsoon as it was declared an open, but regulated, species.

Obviously, the characters have been quite successful and appealing but unfortunately quite misunderstood and misrepresented. Interesting enough, the phrase "angel dragon" is so ambiguous that I now consider the term to be a description synonymous to "cute/chibi dragon", as that's the most common understanding of it these days anyways. But calling something an "angel dragon" shouldn't be an insult! I'm amazed to see so many people take it as one.

So if you're not in the loop, recently two "types" of dragons and corresponding sub-communities have popped up and it's been cause for a lot of confusion and issues between them. And maybe these kinds of dragons aren't really your thing or you've heard "oh it's just too full of drama, I don't want to get involved". Well maybe I couldn't blame you, but I'd like to at least help shed some light on the situation for those interested in finding out why.




Telephone is considered a "Dutch Angel Dragon". If you want to be part of Telephone's family then you have to have your character make sense with the species and the lore that Telephone belongs to.

It's as simple as that. Really. People shouldn't be making this complicated.

Every species, real or fictional, open or closed, is the same way- they need to share common traits to be classified as the same species. That's how species work. Outlined in the image here are 5 reasonable traits that all DutchADs share, in a format that I hope is straightforward and easy to understand. I want to help show you that being a Dutch Angel Dragon doesn't inherently mean "your creative freedom is being taken away", or that "there are too many strict rules". I'd even argue it actually challenges you to be more creative in order to come up with an original design that will also mesh with an established story.


But the way I see it, if you absolutely cannot cope with the fact that you are not permitted to have a muzzle ring marking because it goes against the species lore, or that you just NEED to have genitals so porn can be made of your dragons, or there's just too many popufur wannabes for you to be appreciated then yeah the Dutch Angel Dragon family is not for you. (Really, I'm not making these examples up either. This is pretty common.)

No one is forcing you to be a Dutch Angel Dragon.

Go be a normal dragon and enjoy the character however you want. But I don't understand why so much animosity follows. Certainly jealousy can be a powerful force, and is a common symptom for those who are excluded in some way from a group they wish they could be a part of if only a few circumstances were different. This could be the case with some individuals of this angel dragon community too. But I find it unjustified to blame the admins or our community as a whole for a bunch of trivial things. A common problem arose from the fact that people assumed anyone who called themselves an "angel dragon" meant that they were also part of the DutchAD community- in these cases it's because their character looks exactly like our dragon's species and worse yet, they just look like they're breaking the design guidelines. So yeah, one can expect people to probably ask about it in some form if they haven't clearly communicated to others that they don't want any association with our community. Yet THEY have the power to change how their characters are represented and they're blaming us for "attacking" them for it.

Most cases of people "attacking" other people is because the lack of communication. White knights are present in every community because they are passionate and want to correct or help others, even if it's done incorrectly. Half the problem may be on the other party too though- maybe it wasn't clearly understood that it wasn't supposed to be a DutchAD or it wasn't clearly shown to be visually different than a DutchAD. You would think if this bothered them so much, they would change their presentation! No one has the power to control what other people do, but I can personally try to educate and inform. I have put great effort in getting members of our community to understand a difference and to not automatically assume every "angel dragon" is a Dutch Angel Dragon. I have seen fewer and fewer problems in this area since I have started making graphics like this one and I hope progress continues. We dislike white knights as much as anyone. So let's try to help each other on this. Please.



And since many have so chosen to not participate in the community and take their characters elsewhere, all I'm asking is to cease trying to drag our community through the mud to do it. That is unnecessary.

We are just here because we like Telephone, to have fun and contribute to the development of a community centered around a single species. I'm sorry if you have problems with specific individuals in the community, but we just all want to enjoy our own characters in our own way, right? Yes it's something that's popular but that's just a temporary state, so just because it's popular right now doesn't mean it's corrupted or worth tearing down or gives you permission and validation to disrespect it as a whole either. It's popular for a reason and you alone chose to not be a part of it. That was your decision for however valid you feel that reason may be. I hope you are happy with whatever choice you chose to make. But if our community is not your thing, I get it! I respect that. Done. I have friends in both communities and I know it can work out fine between us. Could we start to move past this now? I look forward to seeing more effort put into that.


And the folks in the angel dragon community aren't all rebels or have bad intentions and causing problems by any means. Many got thrown into the mix on accident, or many called themselves angel dragons way before Telephone was a thing. Ino did indeed start out simply calling Telephone an "angel dragon" and realized the issue early on and corrected this soon as she could settle on a proper species name but the damage has been done. The term had stuck so strongly to the association with the specific species that we have been trying to correct this ever since. Many many people STILL don't realize there is a difference or there are specific guidelines to "Telephones species". I want to help make that better understood. I don't want there to be two "sides" to chose from or "us vs them". I want everyone to enjoy creating and involving themselves with their own characters how they see fit, but done so in a way that is respectful to everyone and doesn't put another group down in the process.


Maybe in a few years when everyone gets tired of angel dragons and the fandom moves on to the next biggest thing, we'll look back and laugh at this shenanigans. I honestly quite look forward to the day angel dragons lose the spotlight; I think it'll be much healthier for everyone.



Until then, be excellent to each other

and, well, you know the rest ;)





I am admin "Sonar" of the Official Dutch Angel Dragon community and the webmaster of www.DutchAngelDragons.com. I am responsible for all content on the site and how the information about the species is presented there. Awhile back I made this infographic for the Facebook community pageand thought I would share it here as additional reference for those curious to learn about the species.


Disclaimer: I recognize that stand at a biased position. I have made it clear that I am in favor of the DutchAD community and actively support and enjoy partaking in it. I am not against the existence of other kinds of angel dragons in general, but I certainly have personal issue with specific individuals and poor choices or actions just like anyone else would on both sides. Other members of the community, even other admins and Ino herself may have a different opinion than my own. In my responses, I will try to make it clear when I am representing the community as a whole vs when I am representing my personal opinion. I do not want the two getting confused for each other. (Hint, I'll use the word "I" to talk about my own opinion.)

I am happy to answer genuine questions. I am also just as happy to remove comments that display unacceptable behavior if needed, but I really hope I won't need to. I anticipate this post may cause disputes or frustrations for people as the two communities have historically not gotten along with one another but I simply ask that we all be civil and respectful in our replies. Use proper debate format, logic, and avoid fallacies, etc.

And yes, I am open to criticism and feedback! :)

Guidelines for Creating Characters

  • Unwanted Dutch Angel Dragons are recommended to be put up for adoption

  • You can personally own as many dragons as you wish

Last Updated March 07,

For complete guide to adoptables, please review the guidelines here.

 

 

 

Physical Traits

 

 

Dutch Angel Dragons are an open, but regulated species. Every creature, real or fictional, has criteria that must be met in order to classify a group of them as the same species, known as 'phenotypes'.

Therefore in order to be considered a Dutch Angel Dragon, they are required to have all the following physical traits:

 

  • Unique horse-inspired draconic anatomy; particularly face/nose/layout of teeth, overall body build, & "digiuligrade" stance

  • Long pointed ears, about the same length as their overall head

  • Feather-covered avian style wings

  • Majority or all of their body has a fur coat

  • Unique internal anatomy for generating and storing supernatural energy with no digestive tract or reproductive systems

Review each section with visual examples under the anatomy guide for more thorough info.

 

 

Many dragons will also include feather accents, horns, claws, scales, hooves or paws, and tails but these attributes are not required and are often included for functional reasons as dictated by their environment. The first character, Telephone, made the pupil-less/blind eye feature iconic but they are not a required nor even a common trait of the species. Please review the species information for a full list of traits, abilities, and behavior to further help you develop a Dutch Angel Dragon.

  • You are allowed to have duplicate limbs, up to two sets of each, of the following: tails, wings, mouths, eyes, and ears

  • Hybrids, taurs, and shapeshifters of Dutch Angel Dragons are not allowed

It is common to see the species represented in very cute, chibi, cartoony, or otherwise stylized variations that do not necessarily reflect the horse-like elements of their design. This is acceptable for the sake of artistic liberty and creative freedom. Just keep in mind that when drawn realistically, the horse-like elements to their anatomy should be able to be clearly communicated in order to properly represent the species. It is also appropriate to draw them in an anthropomorphic form (bipedal with more human-like bodies) but as sexual dimorphism does not exist in this species, the ideal dragon is preferred to not include those kinds of human features (such as female breasts) as they would not have any reproductive organs in anthro form either.

  • The species is entirely sexless & genderless

  • All dragons are officially referred to as "they/them", but gender pronouns are acceptable for ease of communication and are chosen based on the creator’s preference

 

 

 

 

Markings

 

 

Dutch Angel Dragons have the ability to change their markings throughout their lives. They are often based on colors and patterns that appeal most to them. They are permitted to have coats that change during different seasons or other environmental effects, such as day and night. Sections of the markings are allowed to glow or change colors with mood, but they cannot change their coat design on command or overall without reincarnation. The only exception to this is Morph, the official mascot of the Dutch Angel Dragons, who has a chameleon ability they can use at will, for demonstration purposes of the species' marking guidelines.

As of Mar 07, the "Muzzle Ring Rule" is no longer in effect for the species. Full information

Good markingsPotential Issue MarkingsNot allowed markings
  • Avoid copying existing characters and their markings as much as possible out of courtesy to others. Our rule of thumb for similar characters is as long as the two cannot easily be confused for one another, then they are acceptable.

  • Designs that are inspired by or based on popular media and concepts (such as food or animals) are acceptable, however, it is highly likely that there may be duplicates in terms of character themes and design elements. This needs to be expected and tolerated. No one is granted exclusivity for any concept ideas or color schemes.

  • Since true hybrids are disallowed, an alternative is creating dragons inspired by other animals in their colors and markings.

Names

 

  • Using names shared by other dragons of the community is acceptable, though encouraged to be avoided. Especially if your character has the same name as an admin team's dragon. We would appreciate you to reconsider your name choice in this case but it is not enforced and respected that duplicate names may occur and are permitted.

  • The only names that are not acceptable are ones similar to "Telephone" and "Radio", who belong to the species' creator, Ino, and her husband, Cerros. (i.e. Names like Headphones, Wi-Fi, Microwave, Television, Microchip, Camera, etc. are not permitted)

Anatomy and Traits

 

Click to view each anatomy section in detail:

Dutch Angel Dragons are a unique species of dragon that feature an anatomy very similar to the horses of Terra. Each dragon can be remarkably different from one another, but there are many traits (phenotypes) that are shared by all members of the species.

 

The five physical traits every dragon must have to classify it as a Dutch Angel Dragon is as follows:

  • Unique horse-inspired draconic anatomy; particularly face/nose/layout of teeth, overall body build, & "digiuligrade" stance

  • Long pointed ears, about the same length as their head

  • Feather-covered avian style wings

  • Majority or all of their body has a fur coat

  • Unique internal anatomy for generating and storing supernatural energy with no digestive tract or reproductive systems

Links above for in-depth anatomy guide, created by Admin Sniper. 

There are many different types of dragons ranging in size and shape- they can be as big as a bus or as small as a cat if they wanted. They have a remarkable ability to alter their appearance by "dying" like a phoenix and rebuilding themselves differently when they finally emerge from their egg. Since they are ageless, it is up to them to decide on how old they would like to look. The primary factor that plays a role in their appearance however is adaptations to their environment.

There are many types of tails these dragons might have, but most are long, dragon-like tails with either feathers or manes at the tip to help with batting away pesky bugs or for flying. In some cases, they will have short docked tails that they were either born with or was torn off in a fight.

 

Sadly, once their tail is cut at any length it will not grow back, but feathers can. If a tail has been cut off at the base of the hindquarters, often the dragon will grow “butt feathers” in place of its tail. The dragon would have to go through the process of reincarnation to reclaim any lost limbs.

Some Dutch Angel Dragons have hooves, but most possess paws. The standard paws have four fingers/toes, no thumbs, a slight webbing between the digits, and semi-retractable claws on both hands and feet. They also have paw pads. Aquatic dragons may have a much more prominent webbing and under other kinds of conditions, there has been the development of scales.

Dutch Angel Dragons do not have a digestive tract, reproductive system, or even most standard organs such as the lungs. They do have a function similar to the circulatory system, that moves the flow of energy through the body. This manifests in a substance that is similar to blood but is simply very concentrated energy matter in a liquid-like state. The original color of the species blood is reportedly silver, but after the fall from Paradise, all Dutch's "blood" became red like their fellow inhabitants and most creatures of Terra. When a Dutch has been touched or tainted by the abyss, their "blood" becomes black. The more black in their energy stream, the more Abyssal the dragon is. Often black will also appear in their coat colors when enough of their "blood" has been effected by the energies of the Abyss. They have muscles and a skeleton of course, but the only known organs they possess is a throat pocket and a bottomless stomach that will absorb anything that is consumed to break it apart into pure energy. There is no waste matter from the food they consume so there is no colon or anus. Interestingly because of this energy consumption and storage, they do give off body heat and can feel temperature though seem to be able to thrive in nearly every environment.

The species cannot reproduce by normal standards because they lack reproductive organs however, if two dragons were to pass away together to be “reborn”, their souls can merge into a unique combination of their life force and energies. Much like a magnetic energy field is created when two opposite forces come together, a spark of life forms from this powerful energy flow and synchronization as the two souls temporarily become one and then split again, a part of them is left behind to be conjoined as a new soul and it develops into a third egg. Occasionally and rarely, two dragons that combine themselves together become stuck and unable to separate before the incarnation process is completed. This can result in odd physical traits such as multiple ears, tails, and wings. The eggs look like ordinary rocks but with energy crystals growing on them. The new dragon that is born will have a mix of the two “parent's” coat colors and physical traits. This will last for approximately one-hundred Terra years before the dragon gains the ability to undergo the phoenix reincarnation process by themselves and change its appearance. Newborns are as a blank slate and will need to grow and learn just like any other animal. But they will keep their old memories through each re-incarnation process.

 

Energies

 

Angel Dragons are very powerful beings and their greatest skill is the ability to harness energy and manipulate it in countless ways. Usually the kind and type is limited for what a dragon can possess, because only certain kinds of energy resonate with their soul properly. It is also impossible to resonate with opposing energies, such as control over both water and fire. Here is a list of possible energy types and range of uses (not exclusive to this list):

 

Abilities

 

  • Telekinesis

  • Hydrokinetics

  • Static/Electricity/Lightning

  • Time

  • Alchemy

  • Dimension Hopping

  • Speed

  • Strength

  • Darkness

  • Light

  • Poison

  • Fire

  • Psychic

  • Gravity

 

 

Dutch Angel Dragons can also make themselves hover like a stereotypical ghost, which would defy the laws of physics in Terra, but there is a different interaction of energy within the Aether that assists them with this. Truly their anatomy is counter-productive for their ability to rely on their wings alone to fly, so this energy manipulation assistance is often needed. All dragons also have the ability to use energy toward the interaction with Terra to touch objects, consume food, and possess things, but this is usually extremely limited and can only be done for short amounts of time. Only very gifted dragons have abilities to interact with Terra on a more advanced level such as prolonged possession and even physical manifestation.

Angel horns dutch dragon

Skeletal Structure

 <Back to Anatomy

The bones of a Dutch Angel Dragon are lightweight yet reinforced with crossing trusses to support its weight during flight. The limb and torso bones possess little to no pneumatization, instead having packed trabeculae. The bones are highly vascular, ensuring a constant high energy supply to the wings and limbs.

Body

Instead of a collar bone for support, the front limbs move freely with help from the muscles and tendons, permitting it to fully tuck its legs while lying down, jumping, or flying. Sternal projections ensure a strong anchor for the wing' enlarged pectoral muscles to the keel. The keel is not pronounced, instead having a smooth look due to abdominal muscles and fascia.

Despite the lack of internal organs and reproductive system, the pubis and ischium are swept backward to allow further attachment of the wing muscles and more space for the 'energy' stomach pouch. The gastralis, or stomach ribs, give more protection to the abdomen as well as additional muscular attachment, and alos prevent the stomach from feeling too soft to the touch. Due to the lack of heavy bones, the abdomen is however of the the softer and more vulnerable parts of the body.

On Dutch Angel Dragons, the lack of a clavicle for the front limbs is due to their equine-like anatomy, horses not actually possessing a collar bone. The front limbs are supported by looser tendons and muscles, making them extremely flexible in their shoulders, like horses. The cervical (neck) vertebrae are rounded in shape, permitting a wide range of movement despite the overall length of the neck. The vertebrae of the tail are also smooth-shaped, supporting flexibility over structure.

Wings

Pneumatization refers the presence of air pockets in the bones, separated by criss-crossing trusses of thin bone in the core. This makes the wing bones quite light yet incredibly strong due to the trusses. The lack of a core of marrow necessitates the presence for larger, more developed muscles of the breast and wing arms themselves to support the flow of energy to the wings, which would otherwise be provided by a highly vascular system. 

 

Dutchies do not have a clavicle on their front limbs, but a clavicle for the wings is set just forward of the front limbs' scapulas. This is the same as the 'wishbone' found in avians, due to them sharing feathered wings. The majority of the wing muscles and bones are clear behind those of the front limbs, ensuring a full range of lateral motion for the wings and no restriction of the front limbs.

The metacarpus, or wing hand, is fused into a single bone. Some individuals may possess elongated metacarpals and claws which may be opposable, allowing them to climb or hang by grasping rough surfaces. The publis is swept backward to allow space for wing muscles and the 'energy' stomach.

Feet

The carples are fused together into a tight pack, with thick metacarpal forming the paws. The bones and muscles of the front limbs are stronger than those of the legs in order to support the weight of the sternum, wings, and associated muscle groups. The elbows and the heels alike jut outward in support of muscles attachment.

Like equines, they possess elongated metatarsal (cannon) bones, from which the phalanges form mammalian paws, The pisiform is present on the front and hind paws. Some individuals do possess hooves.

Dutchies possess a mix of a Western dragon's digitigrade stance, with similar bone structure to the horse, an ungulate. This stance has been dubbed "digiuligrade". The metatarsals are fused into a single cannon bone with the phalanges starting at the bottom portion along with a pronounced sesamoid. The combination of stance and skeletal anatomy gives Dutchies a good mix of leaping power with long-term standing and walking, from their draconic and equine characteristics, respectively. Like equines, they are able to tuck their legs close to their bodies, and bend their paws downward quite far.

Skull

Dutch Angel Dragons have a horse-like skull, though they lack the closed, circular orbit of equines. Instead the Dutchies have full-color, forward facing eyes completed by the orbital ligament. most individuals have crisp vision, some able to see with binocular-like focus or see clearly underwater depending on their adaptation and environment.

Like mammals, they possess a nicitating membrane, or 'third eyelid' to protect and clean their eyes, though this is vestigial in some individuals. Those with facial horns will sport them as bony protrusions from the skull itself. Some individuals may have broader or longer faces, raised or sloped snouts, matching the horse breed they most closely resemble.

Teeth

Similar to horses, Dutchies have a wide gap separating their canine and molars, supported by a rounded facial crest. While individuals may change the shape and function of their individual teeth as they change appearance, the gap is permanently present among all Dutchies.

The typical dragon possesses a good mix of both tearing canines and incisors, and crushing molars. However, Dutchies may change the shapes of their teeth to suit eating their favorites foods. Herbivorous individuals will sport flatter, closing front teeth for snapping up grasses and leaves, and square molars for crushing tough plant matter. Those who prefer meat will have sharper, piercing teeth to tear at prey. Seafood-lovers will have sharp, conical teeth for keeping hold of wriggling fish.

Horns and Other Adornments

The shape and the size of the horns will vary by individual and depend largely on their environment and function. Those with large, elaborate horns may use them as a display to warn potential threats, or to fight with other dragons. Some may possess thicker, sloping horns in order to protect their necks and serve a more defensive purpose. Larger horns will require larger muscles for the dragon to move their head and neck with ease.

Along with motion, the horns cannot be places where they would inhibit movement. For example, large horns sweeping backwards on the aft portion of the mandible would prevent the dragon from opening their mouth very far. Instead, the horns should be turned more outwards as to not interfere with normal function. The same applies to other forms of display, from spikes, scales, and feathers.

Dutch Angel Dragons sport a notably equine-like skeletal system. This is most seen in the limbs, shoulders, and hips. Unlike other dragons, the metatarsal bone is elongated like a horse's, with mammalian toes growing from the tarsus. Some individuals possess hooves.

The skeletal system of the Western dragon (with bat-like wings) is closer to that of mammals and dinosaurs. The limbs may be slightly shorter than that of a Dutch, sporting talons resembling a mix of mammal, avian, and theropod anatomy. The skull may be noticeably more reptilian, supported by a long, flexible neck muscles.

Having less equine-like limbs shows in the larger separation between the bones of the forearms and shins in the Western dragon than the Dutchies. This suggests greater attachment of bulkier muscles used to take down prey rather than stand or stride for long periods.

Unlike the Dutchies, Western dragons possess a metatarsus which form the upper portions of the feet. On bipedal or more dinosaur-like individuals, these bones will typically be fused into a single unit to better support them. The separation between the tibia and fibula are more pronounced, showing where the stronger calf muscles used for leaping into the air are attached. Western dragons do not have a pronounced inner hock like the Dutch Angel Dragon. The Dutchie's tail is typically much more flexible than that of the Western dragon, able to sway back and forth and even curl laterally. The tail is typically adorned with feathers or a mane.

Angry Dorago - Why Is Everyone A Dutch Angel Dragon? (OUTDATED)

Dutch Angel Dragon with Holographic Horns

This Dutch Angel Dragon head was made using an expanding foam head base which was cast using Flex Foam It 5. It was built upon an Ed Head which has a 23" head circumference. Premium fur and minky from Big Z Fabrics was used throughout it's construction. Batik fabric lined head. Resin teeth molded and cast by me. Beautiful holographic horns are of a pleather type material so they are sturdy but flexible. Ears are made of EVA foam and are attached firmly to the head base. 3D printed eyes designed and printed by me. They are edged in black with golden glitter. Vision is great though the glittery, hand painted Buckram. Ventilation is excellent due to the high roof of the mouth as well as nostrils that go all the way through. Plenty of room to add a fan if you so desire. 

If the auction hits $, I will add in a custom made pair of fully lined paws with claws that match the horns. The winner of the auction will need to let me know how they would like their paws sized and designed.
