? WHAT IS #smaugust2017  ?
For the month of August 2017 I created one of a kind dragon drawings all month long! Its called #smaugust , a monthly themed challenge to celebrate and engage with the online fantasy art community. Specifically, I explored and expanded the lore of dragons within my own IP, a magical world called "Terratoff"

 STORY:
"Everybody in Terratoff has an occupation, most dragons traditionally become blacksmiths because of their fire abilities and fondness for precious metals. 
It is widely believed that the best blacksmiths are "The Feathered Hydra" breed because they are able to work so quickly and precisely when all the heads are in sync. 

The dragon smiths are the ones who make the unicorn neck crowns, and deliver them to the foals when they come of age. This young dragon apprentice has been tasked with delivering a crown to it's new owner. 
When he arrives to the ceremony, he will present the crown to the baby himself. He can't wait to meet his new friend, and take part in the sacred and adorable ceremony."

! THE PROCESS !
My process includes several steps. First, the sketch is drawn softly with colored graphite to draft the idea. Next I add colored pencils to add dimension and define the lines. Lastly, charcoal colored graphite is drawn on top to tighten and clean the drawing as well as add detail. The colored sketch remains intact and subtly visible beneath the charcoal color of the final drawing. This process captures not just the final illustration, but also preserves the method and experience of creating it.
