NaNo being NaNo and all, I am swept up in a jubilant spiral of research and reality, myth and magic, creativity and imagination. Today the subject once more is dragons. Not the stuff of legend…The Hobbit or King Arthur…but more a mixture of paleontology, zoology, and ancient myths. Plus a good healthy dose of ‘what if…’ and a splash of creativity.
Take this WYVERN by Michael Komark A much more realistic and plausible take on a dragon. After all, the other version requires it to have evolved from a six legged reptile…and I haven’t seen a lot of those.
Or how about this gorgeous, and different, take on a dragon’s head? (photo Damir Martin)
This one is a fun variation, somehow it seems as much insect as reptile, a combination I really like.
Anyway, the project has moved my story forward in the creation of my own drachen.
I love it when an idea…or a creature….comes together.
