Squiby: Rust Dragon by Ascynd Squiby: Rust Dragon by Ascynd
For shorts & goggles... another planar dragon. This one was tough to shrink due to all the segmented armor parts... the hatchling didn't come out as clear as I'd like but at least the adult looks good.

You can adopt one here...

Hehe, you're one of the few to say so... I always thought rust monsters were cute and harmless (unless you're made of metal). Thanks!

The hatchling reminds me of the DnD creature called a Rust Monster, albeit cuter.

Thanks! I think it came out well, if I'd gone with just one rust color it probably would have been hard to make out the detail when it was shrunk. ;)

The hatchling is supposed to be strange, I wish the detail came out a little better in the shrunk version, but yes the adult did turn out how I'd like it. Thanks!

I can undersand, life can make one very busy... I barely have time for my own stuff, let alone other things like commisions and requests... Like I sai I enjoy them, and you are a very talented artist. I'm just getting into digital painting myself, so I like finding good stuff like this! :nod: :D

Weird, the "hatchling" looks like a typical rust monster. Never heard of this one. Did you draw this yourself? Very nicely done.

:iconascynd:
Ascynd Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2010
Yep drew it without a reference, after looking back I got lots of stuff wrong, but captured the gist of it at least. It is indeed a rust monster... according to Planescape rust monsters are the larval form of the rust dragons of Acheron. Like most larvae their purpose at that stage is to eat and grow... once they've gotten big enough, they somehow find their way to Acheron, burrow into one of the continent-sized floating cubes there, and spin a metallic cocoon. Later they emerge from the cocoon as 'hatchling' rust dragons.

They're described as being somewhat insect-like in appearance, the original imagery of the rust dragon from Planescape gave it a vaguely armor plated appearance and tiny, butterfly-like wings. I made my own interpretation with more exoskeleton-like armor plating. The wings were inspired by SanctumArt's Shrieker... they look much more functional and make more sense to me than than tiny butterfly wings, lol...

Not all rust dragons are oxidized iron colored, they can look like any tarnished or corroded metal, for this one I chose a sort of yellow patina'd bronze.

Thanks, glad you like it!

Thanks! They are inspired by a 3d model of an alien from SanctumArt, they looked much more like something a rust dragon would have than the tiny butterfly wings I've seen them pictured with. :lol:
