Endless Realms bestiary - Topaz Dragon by jocarra Endless Realms bestiary - Topaz Dragon by jocarra
Bestiary artwork for Endless Realms, a D&D-like "pen and paper" fantasy RPG I'm working for.

Topaz - mental, spiritual and psionic power

Differing from other dragon concepts in the game so far, this dragon isn't a demigod or avatar of a particular elemental or cosmic force.  For the gemstone dragons, I was given almost entirely free reign, so I decided to take inspiration from historical and pagan lore.

Since we already had a few orangeish coloured dragons, we decided to go with blue topaz.  In my mind, Topaz is basically the mage-priest of dragons, master of all things magical and arcane - I couldn't help but give him an Oriental "dragon beard," it just really seemed to suit him :3

Hi Jen!  I'm back to let you know that I've featured your work again, this time in a post called November Birthstone Dragons by Various Artists on my dragon artwork blog (with proper attribution and links back, of course).  I love this dragon, even though I was technically looking for orange topaz -- but I had to mix the post up a little!  You can find me at Writing Dragons, and this feature here.  Keep up the great work!

lol, yes, this is rather the "Oriental sorcerer" of our dragons (other than, perhaps, the Jade Dragon maybe).

Beautiful.  Love the crystalline patterns in the webbing of wings and between spines.  Yes, the oriental look suits him. :)

Thank you very much :thanks:  Yeah, I felt like his wings turned out pretty well!  Sorta translucent and crystalline, or maybe rippling with energy.

I imagine it on a mountain practicing magic that hasn't been seen in thousands of years.

Yeah, I could see that :)  Some fabled mountain that mortals have been forever unable to climb, but sometimes, through the impassable clouds and mist, sometimes they catch a glimpse of some distant wonder in the peaks...

To your comments, I was sort of wondering why you made him blue. You gave him the magic vibe with not just the glowing energy, but also the whiskers, the spines, and the wings, which look somewhat translucent.

Thanks :)  Also, if I recall, I chose blue topaz over the more common yellow topaz because it had a cooler pagan "theme" to it.
