So, when I was talking about Turbosharks, maybe you remember me saying this:
Well, here’s the Lavasaurus.
I haven’t decided yet if these are actually going to exist in Realmgard, or if they’re purely legendary creatures.
It’s, uh, it’s pretty much exactly what you’d expect, basically a giant, volcanic dinosaur and perhaps more than a little reminiscent of a certain giant, radioactive dinosaur, particularly said giant, radioactive dinosaur’s super-powered Burning form.
That’s not necessarily deliberate, I swear.
There are only so many ways to portray a giant fire lizard and they’re bound to overlap in a number of ways. I mean, yeah, the back and tail spikes are meant to be pretty Godzilla-esque, but the overall design is supposed to primarily be, essentially, “T. Rex made of Lava”.
I don’t think I really pulled it off, but I think I did as well as I could considering I’m still not great at art and I’m still fighting with the newest version of GIMP. But at least it does kinda-sort convey the idea of “cracked surface revealing hotter inner layer”.
