This is Quox, the last living dragon in the Augustos universe. I've been tinkering him with a year or two now, but I've never really put his design to paper. He's rly rly old and also a shell of his former self. Most of his brethren were lost in a great war, half a millenium ago, when they sided with humans and were slaughtered by those same humans who offered them riches in exchange for their war support. So that kind of murdered Quox's will to live and he has secluded himself in the uninhabited mountains to the north. He's been there for hundreds of years, hibernating, just kind of slowly waiting for death to take him. He doesn't breath fire any more, just a foul, toxic stench. It's almost like he's rotting from the inside out because he's taken such poor care of himself.

Of course, he's territorial and no one dares enter the old gnome ruins where he takes refuge, because who wants to go up against an old pissy dragon?

He's really important in the story though, especially in the backstory of the nation, when he was more of a ambassador between the dragons and the other races. But shit went foul, yo. Also...

WOW DRAGONS ARE HARD TO DRAW. Like, I'm having huge problems with keeping him consistent between designs. Though I did decide I like the non-toothy design better. But I was thinking that that skull cap thing he wears on his head would be one of his fallen comrades or something.

Very cool! I really like the idea of it wearing a dragon skull as a kind of helmet. :o

Thanks! I've always enjoyed looking at cattle skulls in a design sense so I think that's what led me to that decision.

Thanks and me too! I really love unique dragons that are given their own personality too.
