TAP Challenge #94: Vampire Dragon

Unread postby sampetersonart » Mon Jun 11, 2018 2:22 pm

Throughout the kingdom there have been sightings and reports of people encountering what they described as "vampire dragons". Dragons are not unheard of, but typically keep to themselves and stay away from the loud and busy cities and villages. Though recently people have reported being attacked by strange, dark, dragon-like creatures that suck the blood from their prey like vampires. Most reports have come from the woods or mountainsides near nightfall, but some farmers have even reported attacks on their livestock during the early morning hours. There have been reports of them being anywhere from 10 to over 20 feet long.

The challenge for the next two weeks is to design one of these dragons. Keep in mind where they might live, how they might attack, and any other relevant factors while creating your design.

Rules and Guidelines:
-This a creature design challenge.
-Approach this concept as if you were designing it for a video game or film.
-Any medium is allowed.
-WIPs and finals can be posted in this thread. Try to post all your images in the same post by "editing" it if possible.
-Due before Sam's on stream review on Monday, June 25th.

Vampiric dragon with its prey. Instead of turning into bats like dracula, this one probably dissolves into a bunch of worm things.

Hey all! This project was a blast. It made me re-think about dragons and their design over the years. So, I tweaked the parameters and instead of the typical large scale, I went with a smaller humanoid size that lives in deserted arid landscapes and preys upon unsuspecting travelers. As always, comments and critiques are welcome.
