So I've been meaning to rework my vision of whers of Pern for quite a while. I know everyone has their own vision of them since there isn't a whole lot on whers and exactly how ugly they are supposed to look.
Personally, I've always thought that the whers really don't look as downright ugly as the Pernese like to think of them. I think that the Pernese see them as ugly because of how different they look from the dragons, and because when they were made they were seen as a horrible failure, that and they are supposed to be temperamental. All of those things, in my opinion, would lead a society into looking at something and saying how ugly and horrible it is, especially when compared to the dragons that are seen as the elegant, strong protectors of Pern.
I've known for quite soem time my whers didn't look too different from pern dragons, and I've been wanting to change that for a while. So I've been sketching concepts out to rework my own vision of whers.
I tried to make the muzzle thicker and shorter, with the obvious bump on the bridge of the nose rather than the smooth muzzle. Lots of ridges and long ears and shorter headknobs. That's what I've used here to try to make my whers visually different than the dragons. I'm thinking of maybe going back over and turning the short rounded headknob into a bit more of a point so it matches with the face ridges I put on it.
Anywho, not much else to say here. This will probably be tossed into my scraps later.
Color pencil drawing taken from Bruce Lee's incomplete movie The Game of Death. I also included the 3 fighters Bruce Lee faces while going up the pagoda. From bottom to top: Dan Inosanto, Ji Han Jae and Kareem Abdul Jabbar. The lettering I used is actually Bruce's own handwriting on the movie script! This is dedicated to the more recent release Bruce Lee: A Warrior's Journey which has the complete footage edited the way Bruce wanted it to be seen. Not the awful 1978 release with the 2 Bruce lookalikes!
Estava fazendo esses exercícios, com a ajuda do Amilcar, olhando umas fotos do Bruce...ele é bem definido, legal pra estudar anatomia...um dia chego lá!hehe

Danielle rubbed her eyes as she noticed her vision getting blurry with water. She knew her "father" would never accept her back, and she was still steamed about him using her, but then why was it she was missing him?
If its not showing press download, DA is acting up on this one for some reason.
The Vaioa weyr advertisement I was asked to design. Featuring both Dragons, whers and the red star. Based on two of the forum's colors and of course the information about the site and what it offers. At the bottom is a small scale of the basic canon and non-canon colors offered.
All art made by me, the written part is a group effort. Vaioa belongs to the sites administrative team. Pern to Anne McCaffrey
