The assignment this week was to create a new incarnation of the Catastrophic Dragon. The Catastrophic Dragon is a new type of primal elemental dragon recently debuted for Dungeons and Dragons. This dragon's elemental force was "Earthquake". A full description of this challenge can be found here.
For the record his lower jaw opens and then slits down the middle and hinges out to the sides. I had drawn an insert of this, but I didn't like it so I left it out. I envisioned that this dragon would slam his head into the ground to create shock waves. It would also rapidly smash it's massive fore limbs into the ground releasing primal energy from the large openings in it's husk.
