    ROUND #283 – Storm Dragon

    topic:

    ROUND#281: Storm Dragon

    Dragons come in all shapes, colours and elemental properties. This week your task is to design a storm dragon, one with the ability to harness the raw power produced in storms of all kinds. The idea here is that the dragon would be dormant, or significantly less powerful between storms, but upon the first signs of storm clouds might awaken and wreak havoc (or whatever else a dragon with the power of storms might do) using it's ability to harness wind, rain, thunder and lightning. This can take the form of a breath weapon or whatever other dragon-ly power you decide to give it. As an added challenge, I'd like your dragons to be illustrated in a storm scene, preferably (though it will not be a requirement) using one of it's storm-themed powers. Think about what physical traits the storm dragon might have, especially in terms of pre-existing dragon tropes. Try to think if there might be a physiological reason the dragon only gains its powers during a storm. Think: shape of the wings, composition and length of it's spikes/horns/spines, even colour and really try and make your dragon really fit the theme in terms of it's appearance. Due to the time of year, I will be giving you two weeks on this one. Use it wisely.

    Round requirements:

    - The creature must be recognizable as being a dragon

    - The creature must have the ability to harness the power of storms while they are in progress, but be dormant and/or powerless at other times

    - The creature should be illustrated in the middle of a storm


    Deadline:

    January 1st, 7:00pm PST (GMT -8 )

    Dragons! Well I guess I have no choice but to hop in on this one too!

    Looks like i'm first to get the ball rollin, some thumbnails just to try and get a feel for some ideas. I'm abit of a dragon noob so abit generic i guess. The idea is to have it with some kind of antenna which attracts lightning and the energy from storms, or somethin along those lines. crits and suggestions welcome always

    Whohoo.. Great theme! I'm quite sure I'll participate for this round as well (long time since my last one!).
    Anyway, here is my first sketch:

    The dragon is meant to 'harvest' electricity through its tail in its body. It can use this saved energy to attack other creatures or just for the fun of doing so
    Also I tried to approach a quite unusual design for the wings, though I'm not sure yet if it works. Because the wings need to stand the strong winds of a storm, I thought of giving two arms for each wing- the back one will be probably much more slender than the other one, because it's just for stabilize the dragon.
    The dragon has no other arms/legs, so usually it would live in the air (preferably a storm) or in the water.
