Crafted Wrath by TrollGirl Crafted Wrath by TrollGirl
My first shot at a biomechanical creature design. As expected, much more bio than mech so far :D
This is going on someone's leg. I can only imagine it's likely to hurt. A dragon is a harsh mistress!
Mechanical pencils and too many hours.

:headbang: Also, apparently this is my 1000th deviation! :headbang:

This is epic! :salute:
Design is really cool; I think you combined mechanical parts to the living creature very smoothly.
Gorgeous details and flow on the whole picture.
I also love the way this is greyscale work but then there is a red eye staring the viewer.

I think the person who will get this inked on their leg will happily suffer the pain to get something like this on their skin.
Hopefully you can post the tattoo here also when it is done!
And hey, congrats for the 1000th deviation! :iconcaekplz:

Well it could be, if you make some scales and wings. :)
Besides in Dragonlence chronicles, Takhisis, the goddess of evil is five headed dragon, with a foul attitude I dare say. :roll:

And if my granny had wheels, she'd be a member of Eged...
I haven't read dragonlance... it's so extremely badly written i gave up in the middle of the first book :D
Anyhow i guess there's a wide variety of serpentine creatures, and since we don't really know what a dragon looks like, it ends up being a matter of preference.
I used to dislike chinese dragons once. For me it was "no wings? not a dragon". But now i think they're cute.

:lol: I am not sure your granny would like that.
I actually liked and still like Dragonlence books, I listened to 3 audiobooks from the series recently, in English. (The last time I read them, I read in Hebrew in High-school). :)
Basically I was joking around, never though, you'd take my silly remarks seriously. But on the bottom line, I really like your design here. ;)

:nod:
I love Chinese dragons, I think they are unique, and pretty. Besides, they are shiny, and shiny is an advantage when it comes to fantasy creatures, I am sure you'd agree to that. ;)

There's that thing i better point out.. i prefer to talk seriously to you because you're this sweet, nice, and naive person, and if i joke back, my humor is much more cynical, and you sometimes seem not to understand sarcasm at all, so it wouldn't be fair. So you joke all you want but i'll try to be a little serious. So no one gets killed [=

Magnificent work, I love it! Keep it up. ^^ Epecially the sharp design :heart:

It's a badass design, but I still wouldn't want it tattooed on my leg. Or anywhere in general. Just as you said, this is bound to hurt, and not to mention the cramps you'd get from having to be still for so long so the person drawing the tattoo could get all the detail in there. e.o

I pity whoever's having this done, but at least it'll look spectacular when it's completed.

Congrats on making it to the 5-digit mark. Here's to many more on the way.

Dare I say the same of thine actions. For as now that you so vigorously find me a low-minded being. Who are thou to accuse me of that which I am if thee are not I to know so! A mere form of amusement 'tis all I wish to bring, and in such slang forms allowed to be presumed, I ask now, who are thou to deny me such right, and command me as if you were my own master and I a vessel of weakness? Who are thou to command I if not but my sister in this union of art and passion which we all form and know in all its green-colored walls.
