Grrr Monster Series "Water Dragon God*" - 2560x1600 - ArtFlow - Nexus 9

Final for my Water Dragon design. I tried a few new things with this design but kept it within the context of the world in which he resides. This dragon is very old and is known by many different names. I'm having a really good time coming up with his story as it reflects some views of spirituality, faith, Gods and punishment that I've had since I was much younger.

"What Should Have Been...Instead of..." 2560x1600 - ArtFlow - Nexus 9

05/24/2015 - Final...kinda. I may tweak this a bit later but for now, I'm done with it. I struggled on parts of it but overall I'm happy with the results I learned a lot in the process. If you're not worried that the creative process may not work, then you're not pushing your talent hard enough. Comfort zones are for cowards. Push for the next plateau even when you can't always see the road in front of you.

"Grrr Monster Series - Flame Dragon*" 2560x1600 - ArtFlow - Nexus 9

05/16/2015 - Final design. I wanted to do something a bit different for this concept. The first thing I changed that you can see from the "Sketches 0515" is I took away the plates on the dragon's back and replaced those with silky red fur. There's a specific reason for this that I'll go into depth later. But I will way it's tied into the idea that this dragon has 3 different forms. The third form being the most dangerous. What's illustrated is the second form.

Sketches, Sketches Sketches - 0515 - Why it's imperative to expose your child to many positive things early.

05/29/2015 - The line art is almost done. Simply need to clean up and add a few things. I added to this particular dragon's story. He's bigger and older than I originally planned. He's also worshiped by a tribe that lives on the shore and sea.
