    Chow 183 :: The Dragon's Egg

    Chow 183 :: The Dragon's Egg

    ROUND #183:: THE DRAGON'S EGG

    DESCRIPTION

    The Dragon's Egg

    This week's brief is a little more vague. The idea is to design a character for a young adult novel, a girl (between the ages of 12 and 16, your choice) who has found a dragon's egg. She will appear on the cover of the novel.

    This is the whole brief!

    Some things you will want to keep in mind:

    - Include the egg please!
    - Though the genre is young adult, we haven't outlined anything else : fantasy, sci-fi, historical fiction, magical contemporary, it's up to you
    - Remember this is *not* an adult book, so keep that in mind when designing clothing and when using colour!
    - Come up with a story for the novel yourself to help your design progress. Is the egg a curse, or a blessing? Is it a burden, or a treasure? Is it something given to the royal heirs, or a special mistake found by a poor vagabond? These are up to you! We hope to be able to read something about your story from your design.
    -Remember this is a character design contest, not a cover design contest. You are welcome and encouraged to do it as a book cover, but please keep in mind that all chow rules still apply - including the 3/4ths rule.

    Please don't actually write out the story! At least not until after the poll is completed! Let people guess through your work - this way you'll be able to tell if the things you are trying to get across are actually making it!

    second! Yeah sounds pretty cool. Kind of an open round, as long you draw a 12-16 yr old girl and an egg
    Tuner people, not Turner.

    Random thought here, really - have you noticed how many 16 YO girls look like they`re 25? *head scratch* Must be all that GMO, eh?

    Egg, you say...dragon egg...dragon egg...my, what a big omelet that would be! Or a pancake...

    Great topic, as usual. If found some free time, definitely will have a go!

    Oh man, I read so many books on dinosaurs at that age so I can resist joining in the fun this week. Here's my first sketch.
