    I may jump into this one, but if I do I'm tempted to do elemental dragons. Not terribly original I know, but sometimes old school is the best school. We'll see.

    It's good to see so much interest in a subject. If y'all do make dragons, promise me some bad-ass design!

    I won't go insofar as to forbid doing dragons, I love dragons as much as the next guy, and more than some. What I would like to point out is that it is not "elemental dragons", so try and see what you can do to branch out from that, thing more abstractly than existing creatures given an element. You're not just making elemental creatures, but a creature which itself represents that element. I think it's important to note that your creature, while it must have a consistent form, need not be made from stable materials like flesh and bone.

    Maybe knowing some Greek fauna would help.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fauna_of_Europe
    http://www.club100.net/index.html (Snakes, lizards, turtles, so on)

    Would it be a motif rather then being completely fire, or water, or earth, or air?

    Thanks for pointing that out Si_Swe, what I had in mind regarding dragon-ish wasn't a firedragon, airdragon, waterdragon and so forth.. but rather pure flame with a head reminiscent of that of a dragon, earth in a form that reads similar to a dragons and so on.

    Firith with your current upper body design the creature looks very humanoid. Perhaps a varied location of the shoulder apparatus, or quantity of varied arms will give it a more beastly appearance?

    That is a really nice palette Jager and multi-eyed mammals have a special place in my heart. The rear leg design looks a little awkward and uncomfortable in function - it leaves me with the impression of the critter cowering. Hope that helps!

    Here's my initial take on the subject with a dragon tornado. Very rough still, just working out the idea of my air elemental.

    Progress on my fire elemental, and started working on the air elemental...concepts really need to be pushed a bit at this point, but still indicating my ideas and composition. I see some potential in both of them, now to come up with an idea for earth and water...hrmmm
    Attachment 1429399
    ^changed the pose a bit to push the serpentine qualities a little further, still needs some extra details so it's more than just a charcoal cobra with arms
    Attachment 1429401
    ^thinking of the possibility of adding something to indicate scale for the air elemental, like a mountain top with some kind of building or something, cuz this bird is supposed to be pretty big.
    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    Rob: looking very cool. I was thinking about a Phoenix/bird for an air elemental before I went with what I'm working on, I really like the direction of that.

    Here's my WIP #2...
