Transformation - how myths are born by queenofeagles Transformation - how myths are born by queenofeagles
For the transformation challenge ;)

What program or tools did you use?
I used photoshop CS4 and a Huion H610 Pro tablet, and painted this in only one layer (except for the boundaries). This is actually the first drawing I have made with that tablet, I just bought it :) I did some sketches on paper first though.

Where did you find your inspiration for your entry?
The human brain is made in such a way that it sees shapes and patterns in things that do not have that at all. Staring at clouds is an example of it, you always make some sort of shape out of a simple cloud. Seeing a troll in a bunch of rocks is also a nice one, you should go to Scandinavia for some stone troll hunting ;) Anyway, I thought that that was a nice idea for this transformation contest. This drawing shows what happens when someone with a rather wild imagination looks at a nice and otherwise very normal cliff. The rocks here are shaped a little bit like a dragon or wyrm, so people might believe that there are dragons living on their land and come alive once in a while. That can result in a new myth, legend or fairy tale.  

Dragons are one of my favorite fantasy creatures. The fire of the dragon forms a nice contrast with the calm water and rocks, I think, so that's why I choose for dragon. I also love coasts :heart: 

How long did it take to complete?
approximately 6 hours, all done in one evening... That was not a good plan XD I am a bit tired now.

Too bad that you didn't won the contest, but what you created was supposed to be the best for the contest that you ever made...! It's like a transformation that bring the dragon alive...! :)
