Custom design commission for ComplacentFool 

I was asked to create a tar-themed dragon and given free reign with the concept. The first iteration of this guy was kinda more typical and sludgy. Basically completely made of tar, but the silhouette was lacking and overall I just wasn't fond of the idea outside a few of the key shapes in the build (I loved the big shoulder hump shape). So I got back to thinking again, and thought more specifically about tar pits, and La Brea, and figured "hey, you know a collection of fossil-like components all held together by tar sounds like a much better idea". I rolled with it and I think the result is a lot more interesting. I hope you guys enjoy it!

This is fascinating and absolutely terrifying. I love it! The concepts around it with the wing membrane and the oily rainbows on its body really add some interest. I also love the bones and saber-tooth canines. Overall a really cool design!

It's like a wyvern version of Gogmazios from Monster Hunter. Badass nontheless.

This is so great! It certainly is refreshing compared to the gogmazioz dragon design.
