    ROUND #262 - Draconic Sap-Sucker

    topic:

    ROUND#262: Draconic Sap-Sucker

    This week we’re heading back to my bank of adjectives and potential creature types and we’re mashing them together. This week the topic that bank helped me decide on is the Draconic Sap-Sucker. Dragons are typically depicted as being carnivorous or at the very least omnivorous, so what I’d like to explore with this one is the idea that a dragon-like creature, or a creature with dragon-like qualities would be heavily reliant on nectar and sap for it’s food source in the same way that many birds are. Your creature need not be a dragon per se and I encourage you to deviate as far from traditional dragons as you like as long as it maintains some “draconic” elements.

    Requirements this week:
    - The creature’s food source should be heavily reliant on sap and nectar. It should not have any carnivorous tendencies.

    - The creature should have features that make it visually reminiscent of dragons if not having it be a dragon itself.



    Deadline:

    June 13th, 7:00pm PST (GMT -8 )

    Could use some feedback before I jump back into it

    The Lesser Honeybacks collect nectar all day long, just by eating plants and flowers.
    The nectar is stored in a sack on it's back a slowly turns into an organic honeyhive.
    It is said that the males who have the sweetest odor and attract the most colorful insects,
    are the first ones to be chosen as partners.

    Nice start Oskar! One thing I would say is be careful of that front limb; the upper portion is looking a little humanoid at the moment and it's not really in keeping with the rest of the creature. Looking forward to seeing where you take it next!

    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!

    Not sure if I'll enter this one, might not have enough time. I've done these anyway, mostly based off Pterodactyls and Tricerotops

    Cool entries..
    Tchuk .. yours is such a sweet guy.

    And I thought: give it a try Love the idea of a nectar sucking dragon and I had to figure out, which method I like..
    Like an insect, like a bat or like a colobri...

    I think, I'll take the variant of a colobri like dragon-creature, small with little but fast wings.

    There is my fast sketch at midnight.. I hope, I have a lot more time after sleeping
