OK SO ... here's the story behind this piece; the contest theme is "inspired by you", right? So at first, I was totally going to design my own cool dragon that was inspired by the dodge dart. But then, after looking thru all of the other digital art entries, I saw that a lot of entrants had done something similar. Like... made the car into a person or something. SO I came up with a whole new concept, and that included not only a badass dragon but a whole story line to go with it.
It's pretty easy to understand. Basically, this is a dragon and his buddy the dragon tamer. They've been together for ages and stuff because he's a dragon tamer and he's a dragon and they live in this great fantasy land with cities that don't believe in glass windows. And only use one colour scheme for every building... Anyways, the dragon tamer ends up coming across this dodge dart and totally makes it his new ride and his best friend, the dragon, is a jealous lizard. In this scene, the dragon tamer is probably yelling something like "OI, get off the hood, you're gonna dent it!" and the dragon is thinking Pff whatever, leather interior. I bet it can't fly. I can fly.
ER WELL I reallllyyy hope you guys like this piece and I reeeallllyyyyy hope I can win because... that's the point LOL. I'd love some constructive crit, if you're willing to give it.
Thanks ! I will post some closeup shots soon.
