? 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:
"It is said that Rotten Dragons are the most fearsome of all Terratoffian creatures. Even the usually kind and sociable Crystal Dragon becomes a dangerous predator once infected with the magical plague. 

This once wise creature has become a gnarled shadow of her former self, bringing sorrow wherever she goes. Her trademark crystal like "shard" scales have become poisonous to the touch! Should an enemy try to fight her, just one prick promises a painful and gruesome death. Confident in her armor of venom, she is slowly but surely expanding her territory across the woodlands of Terratoff, victorious against every rival that challenges her.

Soon the Queen's warriors will come to destroy her in order to contain the plague she carries, but she's no easy opponent, and she will fight...to the death."

! 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.
