Spineback Dragon Mount (with design process)
Spineback Dragon Mount (with design process)

Developed for my university final year IP, STORM DRIFTER! The university may be quarantined, but the work continues haha! I have rarely dabbled in creature design, so I had fun with this. A big part of my idea for STORM DRIFTER was that it's a Wild Western, but dragons replace horses. I looked at saddles in films such as The Pale Rider, and replicated the kind of traveler's gear found attached. I ended up having to move the wings more towards the centre of the body, as I realised the body needs to remain relatively level, to keep the rider and gear on-board- if I put them towards the shoulders, it would hang down during take-off.
