1. Create a dragon which has a strong relation to an element!
2. The element can be one of the classicals like water, earth, fire and air but you can also come up with your own, like ice, stone, diamond etc...Only restriction is that IS a MATERIAL which can be found in nature and is not something ethereal, emotional or made up by mankind.
3. No individual/character!!! Make a concept of a species!
Ice Dragon: Related "element" is ice. The appearance of the dragon must fit to the elements look or feel. So it probably would be a dragon with white/cyan/blue colors. It could have design elements like icicles hanging down from its body or a thick fur would be logical as well, blue eyes, small ears, etc...i think you got the point, so let's see some nice dragons which have a nice twist or design idea

Isn't this topic dangerously similar to CoW 36 "White Skinned Dragon Eater"? Not that I am questioning your judgement or anything fozzy, if you were aware of this im sure there is a logical explanation as to why you chose this topic... but just thought id bring it to your attention.
Anyways, I may try and make this my 1st CoW, depending on my time... Would be a good chance for helpful feedback from all of the "masters" I'll try to manage my time sos I can turn in something good.

I was just going to say the same thing. Dragon Eater's been done.
Well, at least we get to pick the color this time.

I'd be tricky to do, since the image of the last one's winner will be so strong in everyone's heads

I'm going to do some sketching for this but i seriously would not be disappointed if the topic changed to something thats never been done.

Just wait guys, fozz is in deep slumber.
January 17th, 2008 #16
It might not hurt to try a second take on a topic that is pretty much the same but with less restriction... and I was all set to check out the topic and start sketching something but now I'll have to wait and see if this will remain the topic.
January 17th, 2008 #17
dont be silly
its the topic
I didnt mena to even hint that that is a question
if foz wants to give the same topic six weeks in a row I expect you all to spur yourselfs to greater and more creative solutions to the same problem.
its just a different puzzle
and you have to reject the trite "done" solutions in favour of something newer and farther out of the box.
I didn't mena to question, I merely meant to spur the so0lutions farthur afield in search of creative answers.
DO IT MIKE ! YOU HAVE BEEN MISSING TOO LONG!!!!!

The creature that feeds off dragons huh? What's it gonna be ladies and gents?
January 18th, 2008 #19
This is what I have so far, I hope this topic stays. I think its a good thing to work with an idea more than once, It forces you to be creative, and challenge your imagination.
Oh well, I'll start over

oh shit, sorry guys...i was browsing through the ideas thread and saw this topic which i liked, but it totally forgot the "White Skinned Dragon Eater" one...
Will look up for something new, thanks for the head ups.
thanks for the backup...just because of your post i was thinking shortly about not changing this
January 18th, 2008 #21
ok, changed the topic...i hope it will pick up all dragon freaks and is a nice change to continue with
January 18th, 2008 #22
Actually, I agreed with Chaosrocks, wouldn't it be fun to revisit an old topic to see what new ways people could come up with? I think most of the people complaining didn't even participate in that round anyway. I actually had an idea and all and was already rescheduling stuff
January 18th, 2008 #23
i will do this another time, but then with a more interesting additional twist...not only choosing the same topic for a new round...i will keep this in mind...
January 18th, 2008 #24
Hmmm. Well if we're using an open ended definition of 'element' including stone and ice... I think I'll do tar... like a tar pit.
January 18th, 2008 #25
Thank you SO much fozz for keeping it a dragon topic! Glad I didn't start sketching the other one. That still looks badass arteater. I hope you continue and work on this one too.

by any element could the elements also go by the periodic table of elements?
or is that getting too scientific?

Ah I got into Jaecks idea of an Icedragon ... Maybe I achieve something usable for my first participation here ... ^^
