Dragon Kappa by Bracey100 Dragon Kappa by Bracey100
A completely digital sketch done as a concept piece for a short comic book story Im working on. The sea monster here is based on a kappa and a dragon and the design comes from the creatures that might have inspired the legend, large turtles and giant salamanders.

Imagine he could kill thousands if not millions of sea life when charging the electric shock UNDERWATER...

Ah I see, youve made a mistake. Thats not electricity in the water, thats just the brush I was using to make waves is very jagged. What this dragon does is blast you with super heated steam from its mouth as well as exuding poisonous vapors from its skin.

Im actually not very acquainted with the majority of Ultraman kaiju. Ive only ever watched to first series in its entirety when I was a kid back in the 70's a a couple of movies here and there. Im only recently started to learn more about the many Ultramen and the ultra monsters. The inspirations for this creature were giant asian salamanders and the mythical kappa (a turtle -like monster). Any resemblance is to ultra monsters is purely coincidental...but kinda cool.

Thanks very much. I always like to establish those little details and as something of a detail nut Im very interested in representing the textures of things in my art to maximum effect.

I'll keep you posted on the progress. Im writing the story with another writer and hope to get to draw it (its for an anthology book) so I may not get to do the art. We'll see how it goes.
