    ROUND #212, the Faberge Dragon

    topic:

    ROUND#212, the Faberge Dragon

    Its time again for a cow featuring everyone's favorite creature... DRAGONS! And this time around we'll be designing the fanciest dragon of them all.

    First off look at this picture...

    Attachment 1224966

    Now imagine that instead of being a Faberge egg, its actually a very rare dragon egg. Your challenge this week is to design the dragon that comes out of this extravagant looking egg.

    Things to keep in mind...

    - try to take visual cues from the look of the egg (colors, decoration, etc.) And incorporate those into the design of your dragon.

    - keep it a dragon. There are a lot of different kinds of dragons but it should be reasonably recognizable as a dragon.

    - remember to make it fancy! The more the better. And to help let you get it really pretty, this will be a 2 WEEK COW!

    also as an alternate to the egg I posted above you will be allowed to look up your own pic of a Faberge egg to do your design. Just make sure to include the pic of the egg with your posted final image.

    Show us the most intricately beautiful dragon ever!


    Deadline:

    MAY 18th (2WEEKS!) 9:00pm PST (GMT -8 )


    finals go here...

    Did someone say dragon!?
    Why did you have to go and do that after I said to myself I'd sit out this round!? Now with dragons involved I have to partake! lol
    Should be a good challenge though, cuz now they have to be really pretty!

    Very clever idea. I look forward to the entries this will bring. I would participate but my computer is nearing the end of it's life cycle and must either get overhauled or get replaced. I hope to be up and running by next week, but we'll see.

    A huge list of different Faberge eggs.
    The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.

    Even though I should be sleeping atm...

    I was browsing through the holy ground (Google) to find a rare and elusive egg. And found two. But I can only keep one. hmmm... which to keep and which to have for breakfast?...
    I like the green one because the design has a nice scale-like pattern to it.
    And the black one was interesting the way the gold contrasts with the black.
    And I came up with this silhouette earlier today coincidentally, I think its perfect for this topic...ideas are brewing!!
    I'm also debating whether to make a hatchling or not...

    Great topic, as usual!
    I've been away for a while, but I'm back!
    You guys have been going at it like crazy - I've got some serious catching up to do. *starts drinking from the inspiration well*
    @lkjhgfdsa - thanks, great link!

    hey, It took me 5 months to find the COW section and here I am, I think I will try to send something in for this one. The rules are confusing at the moment but I shall have a look at the extended_rules thread.

    No idea why people are mad about dragons, but .. looking forward to try something out!
