    Chinese dragons could have more legs. Iirc only the emperor's stuff may depict a dragon with ten legs.

    Take the little red 'dragon' from Mulan and make it much bigger, and that's essentially it.

    Really depends on the context, if there’s any comparison to snakes it usually ends with me imagining easter dragons, if it’s called an earth dragon I imagine a large komodo lizard. If it’s called a sky dragon I imagine an eastern white dragon while ice and/or fire leads me to western dragons with the respective colours.

    I usually read some darker tone of novels so my imagination would tilt towards that direction, to add more atmospheric views.

    I think of them as an useless, snakey, inferior, worthless, ugly version of me but even worse.
