    MYFX Challenge #304 - Chaos Dragon - WIPS

    Welcome to challenge number 304 Please offer suggestions for future challenges themes here.

    Thanks to schwager for this weeks challenge theme :) Because of the forum problems and my lateness this challenge will run until Saturday, but i will start the new one on Wednesday to get back on track

    Chaos Dragon

    Brief: Design a Dragon under the corrupting influence of Chaos. It must be obvious that it's not just any old dragon, but still be recognizable as one. Whatever form this chaotic influence may take (ugly, beautiful, or anything in between), have fun with it and go wild.

    For more inspiration for dragons in general, check out the Muddy Colors archives: http://muddycolors.blogspot.co.nz/2012_09_01_archive.html

    Deadline: Midnight (UK) on Saturday 17th November (this is Wednesday night, Thursday morning for those that need clarification). There is a 5 minute grace period allowing people to get their posts and links sorted. A moderator will then post a list of valid entries after checking links and voting will begin until the following midnight. Feedback is welcomed during the voting process.

    This is the Works in Progress thread: Post all comments, crits, sacrifices, and all WIPs (required for entry) here, and your final entries in the finals thread:

    FINALS 

    We have made the rules clearer and created a guide for posting and linking wips. Please ensure that you read this, it has lots of useful information. Entries without two separate wips in the wip threads or incorrect linking/posting will be disqualified.

    • You must post at least two separate wips into the wip thread. (rules) (posting guide)
    • You must post a final image in the finals thread along with two clickable links, that link back to your wips in the wip thread (guide)
    • if you have a problem posting or any challenge problems please pm (personal message) kazky or voluspa for help (guide)

    When you say chaos dragon you mean a chaotic dragon, like a chaotic character in D&D?

    Chaos is usually extrem fire as fare as I know. I think that's what's meant here.

    Hmmm.... that might require some further clarification Stick out tongue

    Regarding chaos it usually means disorder, doesn't it? I'd basically interpret it as the powers of evil and destruction, but I suspect it's open to other interpretations as well... Not everyone plays D&D after all.

    If anyone needs inspiration here's a long list of Chaos from wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaos

    I found the CIA espionage project and the giant amoeba one interesting Stick out tongue maybe the dragon is turning into an amoeba to conduct espionage in the guise of icky goo?

    On the subject of Chaos:

    My inspiration for the theme were the Chaos Powers of the Warhammer World - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaos_(Warhammer) - But it's really up to each of you individually how you interpret Chaos. Can be anything really, as long as the influence is clearly visible and distinguishes the dragon.

    @ Cano: Nice work so far and great idea. Eating it's own leg is definitely in the spirit of things. Maybe try pushing the design of the dragon itself a bit further.

    @ voluspa: Thanks for posting that link... very helpful. There should be something there for everyone.

    @ kazky: Thanks for picking my topic. I just hope I'll find some time to enter...

    I like them, Kisu, specially the two on the right side.
