to think that this was only going to be a sketch... >>;

Another drawing of my character's dragon form. It's taken quite a few years, but after some second opinions, i've decided on the name Elliot for him. Classy, but I like it. c:

I imagine this particular drawing representing the moment he loses his mind and begins to attack the people who cause him harm. He learns over time that to fight means to survive, but at first it tears him apart mentally. He was an ordinary teenager after all.

You can read more about his story here: [link]

Don't judge me on the fire. I know it looks terrible. It was added in last minute to fill space. xD And the anatomy, too. I didn't think the sketch would get finished, so I didn't refine it properly. xP


Elliot (c) Me

The fire looks fine ya goof xD
but really, great piece you did here! It's so intense that It's like you're really getting a sense of the mindset he has and the fury within.

Very much reminds me of an old book I wrote about a werewolf who loses his ability to keep his powers restrained and has to contain them as best as he can so the peace between humans and werewolves would not be broken.

Yeah, at first Elliot just couldn't bear to hurt anybody. But then he noticed that everyone wants him dead, so he might as well return the favour. So now he doesn't hesitate to use his dragon form to hurt those trying to kill him. A very vicious cycle, really.

So Elliot definitely doesn't have peace on his mind, that is, until everyone stops trying to kill him. xD

Makes sense. And who wouldn't feel that way if everyone wanted you dead?

His story intrigues me very much ...

It was either kill himself, and let everyone else win- or fight until he over exerts himself or dies trying to survive. He has his pride at least. xD

I've always thought his story was pretty cool. It was based from a dream (pretty much all my stories are.. ^^;) I had almost 5 years ago. It really needed a bit more time put into it, though, so I thought i'd revive it. I still have my notes from when I started it. xD

Right. xD If I were in his situation I would Do the same. Maybe not something I would want to do but being It's my life, I would try to stay alive.

Similar with me. My story I had written a few years back but pulled it from being finished due to the werewolf/Vampire hype. But I might go back and finish the book because It's one of my better written works ... well, not accounting for the one I am writing now xD

Imma going to bed now. :3 I'll reply to my stuff in the morning. xD

Yeah, I guess his lack of human interaction really got to him after a year or so of being treated like a complete outcast. In a way he became reclusive or solitary, so to speak. But he did come across someone (or rather they came across him) who began to unconsciously change him.

What I really love about reviving old stories is that reading through them makes me oddly proud of myself. It's almost like someone else had written it. xD

Ah yes, I am familiar with that theme. But does he develop and realize his actions or does he become consumed by his emotions?

Very much so. :3 I may have mentioned this to you before but I had a book that was 400 pages plus ... but I stopped writing it because I had writer's block x'D I started the book when I was fourteen ... I could finish it but my writing style is so much more different now.

Hmm, he doesn't regret what he did to survive. And he never intentionally killed anyone (maybe just severely injured. xD). He does let his emotions take control at certain points- especially since he feels the overwhelming need to protect that certain person (that person was labeled as an 'accomplice' after they were sighted together, so now they're both in danger.) Elliot feels it was his fault that person is in danger, thus his protective attitude. Not to mention that person has been the only one who had shown him kindness despite them knowing of his transformation ability.

Haha, i'm guessing it would seem a bit jumbled if you continued it. xD Maybe one day you could revise it? xP
