Update 20th of November 2011 – My entry for the Teufel Concept B 20 competition.

As you may or may not know, I’m a huge fan of competitions. Why? Because it’s a great excuse to get creative! (O, and because I like to win free goodies.)
So, last September when being made aware there was a competition going on at one of my favourite forums, I had to enter ofcourse.

All you had to do was color in this coloring page and you could make a chance to win a Teufel Concept B 20 PC speaker set.

Unfortunately I wasn’t amongst the winners, however I did spend a weekend creating this and I’m very proud of the outcome.

My other dragon..!

O and by the way, did I mention I also made the little dragon on the right all by myself? It was actually supposed to be a character for a game I wanted to make!
I’m still planning to use it for some other things in the future, but for now I think it looks cool along side the Teufel dragon.

It took me weeks to create my own dragon:

– First I looked at a lot of other dragons, to get inspiration.

– I also looked at reptiles, amphibians and even dinosaurs.

– I collected a lot of stock images, like fish and lizard scales.

I eventually decided that my dragon was to look somewhat like a salamander, because I love salamanders!
That’s when I made a sketch on paper of how it was supposed to look like, which I then worked out further on the computer.
I’ve used the stock images which I’ve collected as textures for the scales of my dragon, which was a lot of work as they needed to be resized and tilted, re-colored and ofcourse they needed shades!

It was a lot of work to make this dragon but it was also a lot of fun, and I’m completely in love with the end result! Now, if only I could come up with a name for the little fella..
