    Instead I may make a Spore out of this although the eyes are going to look goofy because the game let me shrink them down any smaller. I won't be able to get the stripe but will be able to get the coloring. May be a while before posting pics though.

    Soon, my own style of art will be close. I'm probably going to start with the head first.

    Does that mean you're going to use pencil and paper to draw him out, and remove the Spore drawing once you're done?

    Yes on pencil and paper! And after I use the spores as reference and also the real komodo, I'll get rid of the spores. At least they give you an idea of what the colors are.

    I have finally drawn the Skull, "General Idea" of what the body may look like, and the head done, I just need to take the pictures and add it onto the media so I can get it on here. I'm hoping I will be able to get the art on by next week, possibly this weekend.

    A komodo dragon charger that has electrical abilities is very promising and a good core concept to stick to. I'm glad you chose a charging fighting style since real komodo dragons are infamous for their speed.
    His story though could use some sprucing. I'm not a huge fan of 'aliens that coincidentally look like giant earth creatures," (although Kikiron pulls this off to an extent). I just find it hard to believe that creatures could evolve convergently to be so similar (although to your credit you back this up by mentioning that the planet that he's from has earth-like conditions). Apart from that, the story itself is too brief and tries to set up too many ideas (alien origin, lightning powers, hibernation, worshipped as a god, benevolent unless disturbed). Try to stick to the core idea of an alien lizard with electrical powers.
    Also worth noting: Komodo dragons don't have poisonous saliva. It was thought that their saliva contained bacteria causing sepsis (a bacterial blood infection) but it was discovered a few years ago that their saliva was actually very clean of bacteria, and the reason that animals bitten by a komodo kept dying of sepsis was due to their behavior of jumping into bacteria-rich water to try and clean their wounds. The wounds were then flooded by water and infected.
    Therefore I would change his bite ability from poison to an ability where he bites into his opponent and conducts electricity through them.
    Overall, some promising ideas, just need to focus on the core concept of your monster and clear out the stuff that detracts from that idea. Good luck!

    Okay thanks for feed back! At the time I was doing this thread when I was getting chemo at the time, so it was kind of hard to come up with something. Surprisingly, for a very first idea, an okay amount of people jumped on it, and I thank those people!

    Yes that was 2 years ago, but I am doing better, just having some knee bone problems from the prednisone. I have to admit I think my imagination got bigger and the art I've been doing seems to be getting better.

    Well at least something good seems to have come out of something bad. Glad to hear you're doing better.
