Mechanical Dragon

I thought it was time for another dragon/monster drawing. :) But I wanted to try something new, I wanted to try a mechanical one.
It's my first time ever actually drawing a mechanical creature. Not easy at all. This kept me buzy for a whole week. Half of the time I've been working on it's design.

Some main information about this creature. :)

I didn't give this one wings for a simple reason; It won't be able to fly with them because of it's weight, the wings would only add to that weight. And it doesn't really need to fly.

When facing an intruder it is most likely first give off a warning sign by using the green lights and steam or smoke. Because of the steam/smoke the light will become visible as beams which are easily mistaken for lasers and therefore scaring away the intruder. If that doesn't work it will activate the flamethrowers and roar loudly. When the intruder still won't leave it will start to attack.

The flamethrowers all over its body and in its mouth are its main weapons. The bigger the flames get the more overheated and the more deadly the dragon becomes.

Through the holes on its body it can blow off steam. Not only to prevent from overheating too much that it could destroy itself but also to strike any intruder with an overwhelming flow of heat.

The dragon's whole body can reach extreme high temperatures, therefore foes should at all costs avoid direct contact. A direct hit from any of it's attack will most certainly lead to death.

Being one of the most fearsome and deadly creatures, it is the best to avoid it.

Main weaknesses:
No creature is perfect and neither is this one.

It is the best to attack from a distance. This mechanical dragons biggest weakness would be low temperatures and water. Putting it in a cold environment however doesn't harm it because it heats the air around it.

Water, ice and snow are the best ways to fight it. You will need alot of amount of it or else it would just vaporize in the extreme heat.

If you carry no water/ice weapon you could always try to fight fire with fire. If the dragon can't blow off steam it might end up destroying itself.

Since this creature is usually in a hot environment it might be almost impossible to attack it this way. And coming close to it to seal the steam holes is almost certainly suicide. Therefore it is best to avoid it or turn around when it gives a warning.

Ignore the simple BG, I couldn't draw a good one. And enjoy!:D
Feedback welcome! =p

hi i'm making a trading card game and i was wondering if i could use this drawing for a card i will give credit where it is deserved and plus its a easy way to spread your art plus you can still use them for your project the card game is called Paragon Galaxy the concept is a galaxy built where all these worlds exist for the perfect galaxy . The galaxy will grow and grow until this perfection is formed

I'm sorry, but I don't want my art to be used for that.
Good luck with the project though.

That's a very neat idea! I love the detailwork and that metallic feeling. :)

I like the thought you put in it. It kinda Reminds me of the Jabberwok in Alice. You definitely don't want to touch the metal on that Dragon when he's heated.

Like you said, He's practically invisible if you don't have millions of liters of water.

Thanks. :)

He seems pretty invincible. At least in our world he might be. But lets just assume he lives in a world woth more strong beings. Perhaps creatures with the power of water or ice. Or creatures who can have such high temperatures. =p
mezurashii's avatar
Yeah, In such a world there are probably Ice and Water Dragons or Fire Dragons. Makes more of a fair fight when they'd run into each other

Just awesome. :>
Yeah.. I can imagine drawing mechanical "animals" ain't easy. (Never tried it out) 8D

But you did a great job on this. :D
I like the shadings & highlights.. especially the reflections of the smoke. :>
You made freehand-outlines right? :D
FoolishLittleMortal's avatar
Thanks, it wasn't easy, but it was alot of fun to do. :)
*not sure what you mean with freehand outlines* I drew the outlines using a tablet. (Did that answer your question? :XD: ) My English sucks sometimes. ^^; lol
Sklavenbrause's avatar
That kinda answered my question. 8D
I draw all my pictures with the mouse on my PC. 8)
So It aint easy for me to draw the lines good. :> On oekaki I can use the beziertool for the curves.. 8D
But in Gimp i have to draw the outlines freehand.. without any tools.

Maybe I should buy a GT too.. but they're so expensive. D:

I used to draw with the mouse too. But it sure is alot easier/better with a tablet. =p
I have a very small tablet now... I want a bigger one.
