Eastern Dragons

The dragons of China, Japan and Korea are all slightly different – and of course each land believes that all Eastern Dragons originated there. A nice overview of Eastern Dragons, their differences, the types of dragons, life stages and other interesting information can be found on her Black Drago pages at Eastern Dragon Overview. Look here for her details on Dragon Types.

The Circle of the Dragon by Kylie McCormick (drago) looks like “the place” to go for online information on Eastern Dragons. Amanda and Donna Quinn have other pages full of information on Eastern Dragons and their anatomy and lots of linked pages from the Somerland Gallery home page. I liked the Sommerland and Black Drago sites because they give references for the information they have.

Clair Russell has some dragon illustrations – and more dragon links. I like someone else's Chinese Dragons' Physical Description page - although perhaps it is because when you move the cursor 5 little dragons follow it around. (I did not see any references of bibliography on this webpage but I may have missed it.) The page seems to have been set up originally in honor of Chinese New Year 2000/4698 , The Year of the Metal Dragon.

I also like this Legend of the Chinese Dragon.

These pages are full of information. Some of it explicitly said it was free to use for educational purposes, but if you want to use any of it, be sure to follow the copyright and reference information for each page. For more see Chinese Dragon Culture.
