Uh... I only just noticed this, but the robe is reversed. Dragon is obviously wearing Japanese or Chinese-inspired clothes and the way he's wearing the robe in the picture is wrong. The robe should be left over right like this: [link]

This is a very basic knowledge about kimono and similar-looking robes. Unless there is a specific reason why you're doing it like this in this story's universe, it might be offensive/disrespectful of the culture. Better fix it before it's permanently printed and sent out.

Dragon lives in a different world and not in Asian, and in any case he does not comply with tradition =)

Dragon is an Asian dragon. He is wearing Asian-styled clothes. And from this picture [link] it's obvious you're drawing VERY heavily upon Asian culture for Dragon. I know that this is not the real world, but the designs and cultures you are using ARE real and still used to this very day.

You had the robes done in the right way here: [link]
But then you had it flip around in here: [link]

I'm not trying to be mean to you or anything, but I am very troubled by this because I'm Chinese. This matters to me.

I can tell you that the robes in reverse is only used when preparing a dead body for funeral. You can say that these people purposely wear the robes in reverse because they're immortal and defy death. At the very least it's a semi-logical explanation. If you just change around a real culture just because you want to, that's being disrespectful :(
