Graphic Design Challenge: Year of the Dragon!

Posted 26 April 2012 - 11:04 AM

If you haven't been in the know - we are under the Chinese Zodiac sign for 'water dragon', and it's been high time we all brushed off our drawing utensils and got down to it! Not to mention let's be honest - we are geek that have at once point drawn a dragon in a school notebook or two, amirite?!

This challenge is going to have you shoot for creating a dragon in what ever medium you want. MSpaint to make a traditional red fire breathing dragon? Sure! A water dragon in oils? Why not? A wordpress dragon themed template? Ohhh - pretty!

If you would be so kind to chime in as you go... aaaaaaaaand let's give this about two weeks to get wrapped up. Say May 11th? Then I'll have a head to head competition created for you all!

Inspiration for those who need it:

I sort of biffed it on realizing when the finals weeks were clustering.

If anyone wants to still get in on this I can bump it out a bit longer.. or if you a suggestion for another challenge shoot me a pm.

You can still throw something up.. yeah, it was my mistake of not realizing finals and all that jazz.

When I have time today I'll try and finish up what I was doing on it... but right now I gotta replace some parts on my car.

No, this more or less took a dive as it was the end of the school year.

If you hurry I think staycrisp extended the 'sig of the month' for another four or so days.
