Here are my initial drawings and digital progress of the five Elder Elemental dragons from a story my friend is working on. These are wholly my take on them and their design, but spawned from his concept of the Origin Myth for his world. Each Elder is a mix of a couple real world creatures to break away from the stereotypical images we have seen for years. Now I get to start working on their bodies! Wooohooooh! ^_^

All Elements: Four eyes like the Jumping Spider
Air: Sea Dragon; Pronghorn
Earth: Giant Isopod; Rhinoceros
Fire: Gorilla; Markhor (<---new fave creature)
Water: Long-Nosed Chimaera
Void: Gulper Eel; Japanese Spider Crab


  1. just a thought...

    ok the last one is a stretch

  2. Haha. Wow. Air and Earth are pretty close!

    Fire is a stretch. Water is kind of close.

    Void isn't even in the same realm. lol

    Neat though, especially because I've never seen those except for the Air one, and I only saw it once or twice.
