Zilant

Description

Last year I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to work on a dragon book for Scholastic by way of Becker&Mayer Books. I got to take a crack at designing 16 different mythical dragons from all over the world for a book called Sink Your Teeth Into Dragons.

This is the Zilant, a mighty snake dragon. From my understanding a town gathered all their serpents for a mass burning (not how I would solve a snake problem but whatever). This dragon was supposed to have risen from the burn pit, like a vengeful snake mess. I thought it would be cool if it had long, spiny scales that when it moved might look like a horde of snakes. Also before you ask, it definitely cannot close its mouth very well. I was quite pleased with the results on this one, tried some techniques on it that were pretty new to me at the time.
