Great work by everyone.
Great work by everyone.
Steve Somers - when she was coming up from the void I was struggling with this wing thing same way - to leave or change them.
I decided that they look too nice on the picture and that she is usually tightly folded anyway(snakelike long body gave me this impression).
Still I'm not sure if I'm not going to put one "folded" dragon, like daughter of big one, somewhere on the final just to clarify any confusion
Here is speedy to show how I worked it out in my mind:
Mine so far:
She still needs lots of love, and some colors, but I'm happy how it goes so far.
Steve Somers I have changed this strange wing-thing ( I cannot expect everybody to have my view on dragon anatomy better to keep it more traditional)
also added some offerings on small altar:
That's lookin real nice... like the addition of the nude sacrifice... and boobs on the dragon... I am all in favor of new ideas in dragon anatomy.
Finished! but took a big chunk of the day to do so. Here's the wips, again, I apologize if the workflow looks messy and disorienting, changed my mind so many times until I felt satisfied with it. The finished final comes right after the WIPS. C&C like always, are welcome and greatly appreciated!
That turned out amazing. Great use of lighting.
Coolest topic ever, nice work so far everyone.
My dragon's hollow inside, so it's better not to get eaten by a thing that no-one can kill and will prison you forever and so on.
really like the hands inside the belly pahavasa
almost finished my piece, getting away from it tonight and finish it in the morning.
unfort all my links will prob mess up since the art is getting moved to a different section tonight but i will post a link to the previous wips.
Fast Art - I love your take on the "Lich" factor hahahah ..... very nice!
"Creativity emerges only when the imagination is given the freedom it deserves."
first time posting, figured Id get off my butt and start participating.
hopefully Ill finsh in time.
super late start on this one but Im liking how its going so far. Tried to steer clear of traditional dragon stylistic elements and went for a more Final Fantasy-esque implausible giant monster approach. Also figured what better topic than to break in my new copy of Alchemy. Anyway its not much to look at yet.
Thought I'd give this a go, it's a long time since I have drawn a dragon, it took quite a few sketches. I haven't decided on his tongue yet, trying to avoid the forked tongue.
There is some awesome work going on here.
frickin' fantastic topic this week, as usual, even if I've been absent a while
saw a couple of entries go up on dA nice and early, and thought I'd try to kick myself back into gear now. SO
I'll put up my progress as I go, makes it feel more like I have to finish it if I've actually shown something—plenty of times I've just said 'yeah, I'm in' and promptly done nothing.
Some really nice entries shaping up here, too, I've a feeling it's gonna be a tough round
not really sure of this yet, I want to do something a little different from a straight Frost Wyrm undead dragon, perhaps, but we'll see. (if in doubt, add more wings!)
EDIT (added second pic)
I know it's not always a good idea to leap into your first idea, usually it's the most obvious, but I'm liking the way this is going so far.
EDIT 2 (added 3rd pic)
what was that I said about not leaping into your first design? Ah well, I'm really happy with the way it's progressing so far, quite close to what (little) I had in mind. I wasn't sure I was going to have time to get this done this week but now I'm definitely going to go for it

NICE!! That beast looks fuckin EVIL!!! I like the dense oily smog around him too -- hope some of that stays..
Im really digging how dynamic your pose is, Mr--Jack.
I know its a bit late, but I'm going to take a shot at this. Looking at all these cool dragons makes it irresistable
Mr--Jack, looking really nice there man.
Can really feel the whole evil skeleton dragon feel coming off that, that ideas got evil vibes coming off it!
Can't wait to see all the finished entries guys!
Hello, I know I'm leaving it late but I have a little bit of time before deadline.
This is my WIP which has made for a fun day today
I had this idea(read: kind of stole) on Monday while watching FullMetal Alchemist. I wanted the dragon to be covered in arcane symbols, like the alchemist transmutation circles (I failed there so far, I don't like that part so I'll be reworking it). I also loved how the hand of Alphonse reached out before he was trapped behind the gate, so I wanted to use that as well.
Here are my thumbnails, first one here I played with the idea of using the souls for wings kind of.
and my current wip, let a friend pick a thumb:
pahavasa: your idea seems to be kind of in the same direction as I'm going Love those hands on yours though, clever.
Mr--Jack: man, always loved your stuff, that looks bad ass!
First time COWer here! Hello!
dwinbotp: your colors are just stunning! Great work...
Zilrion: Great start! I was playing with the same idea (although didn't turn out well for me )
I ended up with a shamanistic/voodoo dragon idea. It absorbs the souls of the daring groups that obviously didn't manage to slay it. Your group, you say? Not likely. But give it a try, dragon's hungry...
Bottom one's probably my final..
