TOPIC | New Breed- Betta Fish Inspired (New Art)
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 ... 22 23
[b]Added lots of new art of various concepts, enjoy![/b] Was looking at my lovely halfmoon siamese fighting fish/betta this morning and I thought to myself "this would make an awesome FR dragon!" Betta's are such beautiful fish and I think they'd make a great base for a dragon breed. @Silverin 's concept looks far better than my old one so I've put that up to replace my old ones for now. This would be a male, females would have smaller fins/crests. Thank you for your artwork Silverin! :3 Basic: [img]http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i264/silverindemonfox/RandomBettaDragonV2.png[/img] With Tiger/Stripes/Underbelly: [img]http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i264/silverindemonfox/RandomBettaDragonTigerUnderbellyStripeV2.png[/img] With Clown/Eyespots: [img]http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i264/silverindemonfox/RandomBettaDragonClownEyespotV2.png[/img] Female: [img]http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i264/silverindemonfox/RandomBettaDragonV2Female.png[/img] I think either the Veiltail, Halfmoon or Crowntail variety would be the best choice to uses as the basis for tail type. While it would be cool to have a tail type breeding system somehow that would probably be impossible to work into the site as it is. Perhaps tail varieties could be done via apparel? Then other breeds could have glorious flowing Veiltails too! XD They'd be from Water, obviously, and probably be fish (maybe meat and/or insect) eaters. Behaviour wise you could base it off of betta fish too, so if mine are anything to go by, flashy, aggressive, intelligent and greedy! lol I think in the coli they'd be physical attackers, fast but fairly frail. I'd love to see some other interpretations of the idea, or for people to hash out details. Do you think a betta inspired dragon is a good idea, would you have one?! :D [b]Alternate Artwork:[/b] I've played around with the design a lot, but of course I don't have any way to do digital art so it never looks very nice lol. Here are some different designs of the breed I've done. With all of the following designs, the tail base would probably need extending a little bit, to make the tails apparel compatible. Female, with underbelly gene. [img]https://40.media.tumblr.com/9af04f957fdf53666e443b2c98794430/tumblr_n19q9m7BJc1sc74hso3_r1_500.jpg[/img] Male (Crowntail fins) with tiger and speckle.

I really like it! I love all these breed ideas, they're so nifty

Very nice; it would be amazing if these added as a water type dragon. Perhaps they could have gills instead of nostrils. It would be amazing if secondary genes were extended to the tails; I really think the eye spots would look amazing on them.

Oh diet wise they could eat seafood, insects and plants?

@Kiwifeathers this is slightly off topic but I really liked the horned dragon drawing you posted in the ram-dragon thread.

@Dragonsage Yeah it be cool if they could extend secondary to the tail! Imagine these guys with shimmer! <3 And eyespots, and iridescence and... yeah they would look pretty with a lot of things haha. Well, betta fish are carnivorous so I think seafood, insects and/or meat.

Oh yeah the Charger. I really like them too, I think there is a space for a tough looking dragon on FR, although I feel a little bad for upsetting the one who made the thread <XD

@Kiwifeathers that&#039;s true; I think I suggested plants instead of meat because so many dragons help themselves to my meat reserves. That&#039;s quite true about the shimmer and iridescence. I think the circuit tertiary would probably look pretty silly on them then again that would be because water and electricity don&#039;t mix well.

The charger was quite nice. I wouldn&#039;t worry about it too much; you apologized and all you were doing was giving an alternative design. Naturally if any of the suggested breeds are accepted the site artists will put their own spin on them and by having a variety of designs available the site artist can get a feel for what features are popular for that breed when they do the official art.

@DragonSage Yeah well they don&#039;t exactly chow down on whole rats so they could probably deal with just seafood and insects lol Yeah my meat reserves are getting rather low with so many meat eaters in my lair these days!
Circut MAY look okay on some colours, but circut and gembond are like that on all breeds.

This is true, even if they didn&#039;t add them to the game, it would be so cool to see a breed you made up done by the site artist! XD
I think I might give the Charger their own thread actually, they are fun to draw and I&#039;d love to see some more interpretations.

Prettyful :)

Only real suggestion is to copy bettas in that the females are typically less flashy with shorter tails

I love the frilly tails(don&#039;t know if apparel would work on the tails very well though)

Oooh, an aquatic dragon with decorative frills/wings/tails would be awesome~ With some changes, I think this could be a really awesome design.
