An improved version of my original sketch of this design, based on one of the two deleted races from the original Spyro game.
I've got one of the press packs from the original game, pre-release, and in it there's a description of two more races of dragons: The Machinists and the Aquifiers.
This family has the responsibility of controlling the many waterways of the world and protecting travelers from the beasts inhabiting the depths. Fountains placed at strategic places around the world regulate the water supply and purity.Description:
Since they inhabit watery regions, they are more serpent-like than any of the other families. Long, slender, ocean green, with lots of frills (such as feathery gills, flowing crests etc).Environment:
Dominated by water open seas and raging rivers on chasms. Large crystals are abundant on the island. Trees and other plants have crystals hanging from them like fruit. Plants and rocks have a faceted, spherical theme.Architecture:
Structures are crystal domes and arches. Most structures have a spherical/circular theme.
If anyone else has some pictures of these races, or wishes to use this description or design to attempt drawing them themselves, I'd love to see them!
