An elegant dragon creature has an unusual problem.  I generally do not depict pleasant things happening to creatures that wear bowties.

A commission-animation for brown dragon boy, a follow-up to slime and punishment.  I was only asked to have the creature melt and evaporate!  The rest is my own fault.


Also, if for some reason you need something like this from me, I will not be available for complex projects for the next month.  You may ask, but I cannot make it a priority before then.

So any idea when this animation is going to be posted onto Sakugabooru? This animation is quite impressive~ The liquid is quite well done.

Thank you!  I have never heard of that but if somebody wants to post this somewhere else I certainly cannot stop them.

Nonsense. I wouldn't have said it if it weren't true. Your style would really fit there. But hey it's up to you. Maybe someday.

I was not questioning your statement!  I am just unfamiliar with the thing that you mentioned.

Poor dragon.

You think the fancy clothing is an attempt to mask destitution?

Dunno.
What is destitution?
bimshwel's avatar
Another word for "poor!"  I am affluent in synonyms.

Ah.
Alright then.
But aye, the cute dragon melts and comes back.

The animation is very well done, especially the part where he's grabbing for his head as he's melting. It's a unique touch but...


Good glory is this tragic. Ironically, this animation leaves more of an impression than other melting TFs for its sheer cruelty.


A rite of passage you say? Well, that is believable for some Eastern Dragons. Many have to master the art of transformation. But what of it being 'hardly a way to live'? Seems like he was doing awesome before it happened

Based on what I was told before I drew it, I got the impression the creature enjoyed this process!

Oh, good to know. I hope he gained something from his experience. I have a connection to Winged Eastern Dragons, so this animation is all the more vivid to me. I also sometimes wear a bow-tie, but I've never had that happen before.


I didn't mention it in my first post, but your rendering of the Dragon is excellent. His look matches up very closely to the legendary features of the Eastern Dragon, and your unique color choice makes him even more fascinating. He's also looking very snazzy in that tux. Thanks to your talent, he's truly an enchanting, wondrous creature.

You can return to the past all you like.  Making the future play out differently is the real challenge.

How do you propose to change a result that you do not understand the cause of?

Really cool, you must have incredible patience to apply such complex colouring to an animation frame-by-frame! Awesome job once again hahah.
