Celestial dragon - OC design by Kerneinheit Celestial dragon - OC design by Kerneinheit
Poop sketch. Don't mind the crappy coloring, lineart and that glitch with his tail and right leg XD
I hope I'll draw a good pic of him sometimes. I dunno why I uploaded it... I guess I am just happy about hes new looks. I have changed his design at least three times...
So anyway, he's still a... some sort of an ancient god of sky and winds. As you can see, I was inspired by all those mayan and aztec statues and mythology.
Like this, for example: [link]
And I just love how they look like.
About three thousands years ago there was an ancient civilization, similar to aztecs, maya and inks, and he was one of their gods. However, he was tricked and turned into a stone statue and "fell asleep", but the dragon said that when the world will need his help, he'll awake. And he did...In 21th century. The only problem was, that he was stuck in his stone body, becoming a golem, and the dragon was really confused, because he knew nothing about this new world. And it turned out that the reason he woke up was that a random teenager just wished to see a dragon... Roughly speaking XD

Yeah... That's how he ended up in New York. So, he is a golem, altough he has flesh under his stone armor. The armor is really tough and he can grow it back in case it is damaged. Al does not need wings to fly, because he IS a god of sky and air after all, but he has four of them, and they look like... stone plates that hover in the air and are held together by some sort of energy(he can't have normal functional wings that are attached to his back since he's a statue). He can dislocate these plates and use them as weapons or a shield. Al is a great healer and a shapeshifter as well.
Blah. Yeah... XDDD

F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C ! The Aztec/Mayan theme is really awsome! And the story background that you give with it makes it even better! Sounds like you could write a book or comic based on your "Celestial Dragon". I know it would make for a really kick-ass story! Keep up the good work!

Reminds me of Dreamworks "Road to Eldorado" where the guys get attacked by a panther-rock-thingie controlled by vodoo from a aztek priest. :3
Like it. *nods* Also the just implied wings with the rock-thingies flying in them. :)

I love preColombian art too ^^ and this is beautiful ! I'm jealous of your skills. XD
