I'm developing my dragon species, because, yeah, there will be dragons in there. I've got rough ideas of what they're going to look like but have only properly drawn one of them:
This species is temporarily called 'Dark Dragons' until I find something better. From the dawn of their existence they have lived deep inside caves because the sunlight burned their weak eyes and was too hot on their frail skin. After millennium their wings have become small and weak their eyes near blind and their bodies thin to squeeze through small spaces. This picture is of the first Dark dragon to venture out of the caves and into the Outside world. He will be the first of many to leave the caves behind in favor of Outside and there will soon be two distinct factions among this species. Those who remain in the caves and those who live outside.
And today is the beginning of my self inflicted challenge May Madness where I will write lots of words! I've decided on 50k words to write instead of 100k. A little too ambitious, that. Here's the chart:
And now I have to get writing!
Does anyone else like designing different creatures for your stories, or just for fun? And how do you like the new blog look?
