? 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:
"The magical plague known as "The Rott" rarely make's its way out to sea, but when it does the effects are truly devastating. Not only does the blighted creature become nearly impossible to track down, but the damage it can cause to local food sources and the water can have lasting consequences.

This Sea Wyvern has contracted "The Rott", and now what was once a peaceful sea has because a watery graveyard. He assaults cargo and fishing ships without warning, able to leap from beneath the waves flanking its prey. The steam it breathes from its boiling belly carries toxic fumes that suffocates life within its reach. Soon the Queen's soldiers will begin sailing in their warships to vanquish the dragon. But until they arrive this Wyvern will rule the ocean without mercy."

! 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.
