    Chow 133 :: Spike, The Dragon Dentist


    ROUND #133 :: SPIKE, THE DRAGON DENTIST
    DESCRIPTION

    Ike goes by "Spike" and he's a Dragon Dentist. So you dread getting your wisdom teeth pulled? Spike offers wisdom while pulling your teeth! Many used to gossip that Spike was a dragon "slayer" based on the tools in his possession. A wanderer by nature, he's never had or needed an office.

    -Spike is a Dragon Dentist without an office, he travels the lands answering house calls (carries the tools he needs with him at all times) No pictures of a dentist in an room with a dragon in his chair please

    -Spike is old and wise, something of an ancient legend himself

    -Time period could vary from ancient fantasy to modern day, but nothing about Spike is ordinary.

    -Spike is human.

    Thank you to Stephen_R for this absolutely wonderful character idea!

    it does have the semantic ambiguity though

    is he a human dentist who works on dragons? (who no doubt have dental problems which is what makes them so ill tempered)

    or is he a dragon who is a dentist.? in a world where dragons are common enough to have professions....

    either could be a great character

    To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.

    what the hell? I changed that! Aw, well. More twilight zone weirdness. Thanks Relic - it should read correctly now.

    You'll want to follow the brief. It's fairly open, but there are specific points there that you will want to include.

    He can be asian. But an asian named "Spike." Ethnicity wasn't specified - the name was.

    All the best,

    well, here's my first lunchbreak sketch. Just to get the general idea of the old, bad tempered grandpa guy with big a drill for a walking stick. The end product is going to be a lot more stylized because I feel like going a bit more 'cartoony' for this one.

    oh btw: that giant toothbrush made me laugh, don't throw it away

    UCT: He looks a little too alien right now, even if it is just his clothing, he reads as an alien, sorry


    A small quick sketch I did whilst at work and probably the cutesy direction Im going to take it. Going to rely on textures and add in some items/ details soonish. Nothing exciting right now, sorry peeps

    Updated: I came up with this sketch, but its really bugging me. Im going to try something else I think Seems cutesy isnt my strong point

    I was kinda going for a wizard angle on the hole dentist thing, since dragons are mystical I thought magic would obviously play into the hole process.

    I get you. I might carry on tho, erg.

    maybe if you make either just the upper OR lower half of his face visible, it could work

    "I'm a damsel, I'm in distress, I can handle this! Have a nice day."
