Contest entry for :Eternity9: 's Dragon-morph contest. 

Can't tell you how much I wanted to join this contest, and how much fun I had trying to draw this. Loved it from start to finish. Anyways, cue incredibly long and paragraph description! 

The most obvious details have already been pointed out, but I will go over them in more detail.

-Most of Tracer's attributes are kept the same, such as her long bangs parted to the left, brown jacket, leg belts, and glove and leg designs as actual designs for her dragon. The Chronal Accelerator (The blue glowing mechanism that is on her chest and back) is an important piece to keep to the design as it has an important function due to an incident in her backstory:

-To summarize it, Tracer was a pilot who was chosen to test a prototype of a teleporting fighter. However, during her first flight, the aircraft malfunctioned and disappeared from reality, along with Tracer in it. Months later, she was found, but suffered "chronal disassociation", which caused her to disappear and reappear at indefinite times, and was described as a 'living ghost'. Even when she was able to appear, she was unable to maintain her physical form. After a scientist named Winston designed the Chronal Accelerator it was capable of anchoring Tracer in the present, while also giving her the ability to control her own time, such as speeding it up, slowing it down, or even reversing it. For the full backstory and more about her, the link is here

-With that in mind, I also decided to give her a semi-transparent tail to show that the Chronal Accelerator didn't provide much of an effect on her entire body.

-When looking at Tracer's official design, the most obvious colours you first see is her bright yellow pants, so I decided to make that her main base colour. Also, since the colour also shades into a dark red the farther it goes to her feet, I also added that development to the end of her tail and feet.

-I based Dragon Tracer's anatomy on a Cheetah, since Tracer is more profound for her incredible speed and agility just like a Cheetah is. So I gave her a thinner, longer torso, and longer arms and legs. 

-Since Tracer used to be a pilot, I didn't give her wings as it makes sense. Another reason was because of how fast Tracer was, having wings would kinda slow her down due to how big they are and how they can easily get in the way.

-A small bit about the shape of her horns is that when she runs, it technically makes her aerodynamically faster, similar to the shape of an airplane. Because her horns are parallel to her body, and she's putting her weight forward, makes her overall faster. 

-The additional poses are there just to show how the official Tracer design fits naturally with various poses of dragon Tracer. If you look up some pictures of Tracer, you can always she that she's doing a lot of movement

Great concept that the chronal anchoring field doesn't extend over the entire body
