WHOOSH

Sometimes it’s nice to just sit down and DETAIL THE CRAP OUT OF SOMETHING. THAT’S NOT SCHOOL-RELATED FOR ONCE. :’D

No particular story behind this one (for once!) I just really wanted to draw a biomechanical dragon :U aside from the biomech mash-ups and things I usually do, haha!

I GUESS THIS ALSO SLIGHTLY MIGHT HAVE TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT I JOINED THE LIGHTNING CLAN ON FLIGHT RISING BECAUSE ZAPPY DRAGONS YES [And yes the head shape is somewhat of a nod to my favourite species - the Ridgeback, though I’ve been drawing pointy-nosed dragons in my sketchbooks long before FR existed!]

Zappy dragons are fun to draw!

[I’ve also got the WIP sequence for this, might compile that hahaaha]

Thanks!

And there are just so many ways to approach that subject so it helps to have a starting concept in mind - from cyborgs and biomimicry to more vehicle-like creatures and mecha, and all other sorts of things in between. Though if you're going for something animal-like, what I've found is super useful is to learn a bit about the anatomy of the creature(s) you're basing your design around. Anatomy is pretty much the biological "mechanics" when it comes to creatures, then from that you can make the mechanical equivalent. It'll look more functional that way! But there really is no one way to draw "biomech" because it's such a varied genre. What also helps is to have a concept/story to drive the design so there's some sort of reason why the creature looks and works the way it does, narrows down your options and makes designing it a little easier for you!

Woaah! Zappy dragons all the way! (Double rainbow reference :XD:)
Combining "future zappy things" (like forcefeilds) with dragons is genious. I never seen a dragon that badass before!

Haha! I actually had the idea because of an ooooold transformers character of mine, which had energy-membrane wings - for this one, I had ion thrust on the brain too, IRL it's somewhat impractical but I always thought that ionicraft were a neat idea!
