Digital pencil doodle of baby Drogon. Dragons in fantasy settings are almost always characterized by blistering intelligence and ancient wisdom, whether they’re malicious or altruistic. I really like Game of Thrones show’s take on dragons. Beady-eyed, animalistic, no forelegs to anthropomorphize as arms, crudely spiky and barrel-chested rather than sleek and elegant. The extendable shark-like jaws are a nice repulsive/predatory touch. When they first showed up, I thought they were kinda ugly, but it grew on me after I read the books and realized how aligned their nature is with their appearance on the show.
More terribly, terribly scripted dream excerpts courtesy of my subconscious. Last night I had a very long Elder Scrolls style dream, set in a vaguely Arthurian world. My wizard advisor was played by Gandalf (the movie version of the character as played by Ian McKellen, not just Ian McKellen), and he kept prodding me into missions and whatnot. Although it was a normal, full-body immersive dream experience, it was overlaid with the sensation of pressing controller buttons from time to time. At some point while rampaging across the countryside as a dragon, I had this very stupid realization.
(I drew my normal cartoon self for character recognition purposes, but in the dream I was a big burly warrior man in armor.)
