Visual white dragon.

So, I finally finished the white dragon illustration.

This is a fourth attempt of creating a visual monster layout (see previous works in dedicated gallery). I intentionally took a hard task of fitting a true dragon on one sheet, but managed to fit only 4 of 12 age categories on two sheets. Now I know the limits. Myself, I like the result %)

I looking for opinions and criticism, especially in comparison to the bulette. I want to know if the changes were for good. Also, I have doubts about the wording of flavor text.
Thanks in advance.

The next try will be kobolds, I'll try to show their culture as well as stats.

X-posted to roleplayers.

I think that this is an improvement. I find the whole affect more aesthetic.

I like the little circles.

I think that one major columns works better. I think this one fits better into the rule of thirds.

The illustration itself is lopsided. The center of the image is the dragon's wing. That's where my eye travels to.

I am torn about the text above the illustration. They are the only part that feels crowded, and that feeling pushes into the whole pieces. Consider cutting the physical stat ranges all together.

As I look over this, I appreciate what a maddeningly difficult puzzle you wrestle with. My respects for getting something to look this good.

The back looks wonderful.

I wondered if the upper right flavor block is out of place. Still, I want to fit character/stats evaluation somewhere. You're probably right about the wing, too.
Thanks for the reply %)

This is awesome! So awesome, in fact, that it has inspired me to print out a copy of this sheet and throw a dragon encounter at my players in the next game :)

Fantastic work. I've seen far worse in published products. The weakest part, I think, is the anatomy of the dragon in the main portrait, but even that part certainly does the job and looks good.

I like how the information is presented, and the little touches are really nice.
