    I'd like to encourage people to come up with some unusual dragon variants for this. Maybe a dragon that hordes office supplies, or an Egyptian dragon, or an alien dragon. Don't feel restricted to European/Asian dragons.

    I'm going to draw a magic dragon that lives by the sea.

    The dragon also smokes marijuana.

    If had any ounce of drawing skill I would have drew one of those guys and submitted it without explanation and left you all wondering.

    Yeah... I think we should set a deadline though, otherwise people just keep putting it off. Is the end of September too long? Not long enough?

    28th of September should be enough right? That's plenty of time to make it and enough time for everyone to log on at least once during the vote.

    I've been grumbling over all the different ways to pose a dragon, wings, where the tail goes, etc

    Then I realized maybe I could just draw part of the dragon and maybe that'd work better for me.

    Maybe your dragon doesn't need wings and a tail?

    Think outside the box!

    A wingless, tailless dragon? That sounds like Orc speak to me.

    I need to come up with a sleek dragon silhouette, it's proving difficult.

    I've always wanted to try my hand at the Ancient Abyssal Dragon from DnD... no wings, dozens of legs, creepy head. Sounds good to me.

    Entries look good from just about everyone. Are we saying til the 28th? Cuz I would like to give this a shot in the next week or so.
