Concept Art & Designs
This here's a custom dragon concept design, a digitisation of a sketch in my sketchbook I made a while ago. The needle dragon bears a noticeable abundance of needle-like protrusions all over its crystalline body. Wise and intelligent, but not safe for riding! Inspired by the several dragon species from How To Train Your Dragon.
Another custom dragon concept design done in my sketchbook. The noose dragon has underdeveloped wings and no arms, but has finger-like digits that can spin web-like structures across its wingbones for the purpose of catching prey. Inspired yet again by the several dragon species from How To Train Your Dragon.
A creature I conceived in my sketchbook one day. Crystaliths (a combination of the words 'crystal' and 'monolith') are crystalline creatures resembling amethyst idols that inhabit mineral-rich caverns. On the surface they are completely inanimate, instead their life forces communicating with each other through the network of amethyst veins and geodes in the cave; that is until they sense somebody trying to mine it. A bright light shines from within all crystaliths (representative of their life force surfacing within the idols) and their teeth slide apart to reveal their mouths, from which a harmful beam of light is expelled against the intruder.
This drawing was conceived from an interestingly shaped piece of red pepper on my brother's lunch plate one day on holiday. The shape resembled an elongated seahorse in my mind, and when I drew the shape in my sketchbook, one thing led to another resulting in this creature design.
