~ Stolen Constellations ~

Once a glorious golden-scaled Star Eater, this dragon became corrupted by Chaos long ago, and eventually it eroded into nothing but a vessel for darkness. At first the drake's scales were simply dulled and cracked, and it's mind was filled with a endless hunger.

Seeking to return to its former glory the star thief consumed everything around them, hoping that if they devoured enough stars their scales would shine golden once again. Yet no attempts to end it ravenous appetite could extinguish the parasitic Chaos that had latched onto its soul.

Gradually the scales of this drake eroded away, and as the Chaos grew the dragon deteriorated until nothing but a skeletal shell was left.

Size - A4 brown paper
Media - tried out some polychromos pencils

Originally I just wanted to try and draw a dragon skeleton. The description was an idea that happened after I had finished this dragon, but the idea seemed to fit.

I didn't leave enough room for wings and attempted fiery magic to takes its place, but I feel like that might distract from the skeleton a bit now? xD

Hiya!  I just wanted to let you know that I've featured your work on my dragon artwork blog (with proper attribution and links back, of course).  I love this piece, and your essay on Dragon Anatomy in your journal is really cool too!  You can find me at Writing Dragons, and your feature here.  Keep up the good work!
