    Topic:
    COW #324: Multi-headed Melanistc Dragon

    Brief:
    Chances are, if you participate in this activity then you already know and love dragons. They are pretty damn popular! So, here's another topic centered around these awesome beasties. The dragon that we are going to be designing is going to be melanistic, meaning its skin has a rare overdevelopment of the dark pigment, melanin. In other words it is the exact opposite of albinism, so animals would appear black (or at least unusually dark) in colour. A well known example is the Black Panther which is a melanistic Leopard. In addition to that your dragon has multiple heads, you can give us a two headed dragon, or you can give us a dragon with a few dozen heads, they can have varying appearances and functions or they can be completely identical, doesn't matter! What matters is that it is a dragon that has more than one head on it's shoulders...or where ever you decide to put them.

    Round Requirements:
    -must have two or more heads
    -mostly black
    -must be a dragon



    'New' Deadline:

    Awesome topic. (Btw I think you meant to write July 2nd for the deadline, not June.)

    I recently saw a video of a snake with two heads that I thought could be a good reference for two-headed reptiles:

    feathers, fur, scales, whatever you want mate! as long as it is a black dragon with more than one head! Everything else is up to your imagination!

    Here's some initial experimenting. I need to do some research.

    Edit: added some head ideas.

    COW #324 P001 [Jha]

    Hey guys, this is the first time I am trying to submit any such thing. So even though, the rules are pretty straight forward, I would really appreciate it if you could point out if I am doing anything wrong. Also I have never done creatures before, so all comments and crits would be more then welcome.

    As for the rules, I do understand that it needs to be a dragon and should be black (most part at least).

    These are just some head and pose sketches I tried for the dragon (Extremely rough, I apologize).

    Cheers!

    I'd like to point out that although in Asia and Africa, the Black Panther is a melanistic Leopard, in the Americas, it is a melanistic Jaguar.

    Pretty much any wild cat in the Panthera species can be a black panther.

    Quick sketch. I went for a more eastern dragon with one head on both ends of the body. The second head is supposed to be a link to another world where the first can peer into and weave it's dimensions.
