'draken son' illustration

On my university course I received a spec to produce a 4K* illustration/patch artwork that represented the theme of 'winter' for a fictional MMO, Beyond the Falls. Since the brief was pretty loose, I thought I'd emphasise the project's high fantasy themes with some creatures! I designed the drakes by referencing photographs of dinosaur skeletons but also dogs, to try and make them a little friendlier. It was one of my first times doing creature design, so I'm relatively pleased with the outcome! If you're interested in the costume, the full costume concept is also in my gallery. *(I had to shrink to 3K to upload to artstation)
