29 Dragons

I couple of weeks ago, I came up with this little guy.



I thought he was kinda cute, and his design is a new direction for me. For the longest time, my character designs were aimed more towards the young reader/teen market. This dragon was more of a children's book design.

So I gave myself a job. Do 29 sketches of him by the time I turned, well, 29. That's today. Yikes!!!



So here's the fruits of my labor. I wanted to paint them too, but that's going to have to wait another day.

Yes, I hear you scream "Piya, do something besides dragons!!" And I say "Well, I just came up with this design, and I loved it, and it would be stupid of me to not use it just because it's another dragon! When I'm inspired to do something else I will!"

PS: You'll note that there's really more than 29 dragons. A lot more. I just counted the male dragon I initially created. I came up with his female companion pretty much on the fly (hence the lame bow ribbon on her head, which I blatantly ripped off Webby from Duck Tales-remember that show everyone???). Also, I haven't come up with names for these characters. Anyone got any ideas?

Great job on these dragons Piya, love everything you did with him:-) I think you definitely need to paint a few of them at least, but not today! Happy Birthday!!

Ducktales is awesome! :D I love Scrooge. His philosophy of "work smarter, not harder" is one I try to adopt every day.. not sure I totally get it, though.

ANYWAY.. Really love the little character sketches. They're tons of fun to look at, seriously. Are you planning to make a children's book from them? (cuz I think you should ! :D)
