Arcus Dragon Species Sheet by Naeomi Arcus Dragon Species Sheet by Naeomi
Edit: This is now one of my main species of :iconkhrotellus:, so check it out!



Organizing the information on this took much longer then expected. u__u

This is my entry for *MorRokko's dragon contest. I've had these guys drawn out for a couple months though, but never refined the line art. Honestly I colored alot of them really retarded, but the designs are all up to interpretation when basing them off of a slug.

Slug you say? That's right, these guys are based off of Nudibranch. [link] though the colors can probably be pulled from any sea dwelling slug. I called these guys simply 'slug dragons' until I came up with a name.

They don't have a home world, history or much of a culture yet. They are probably as smart as or slightly dimmer then a human [I think of like, really smart dolphins or something].

All the scientific names beneath each picture are actually real names of the slug i used the color from. You can look them up on wikipedia to see the real thing. :) I like sea slugs, i don't know why. Same reason why I like jellyfish i guess.

There's no limit or anything when it comes to how many of what variant there are. No individual is exactly the same, and the species I interpreted could appear very different to someone else.

Want to make one? Check out some of these neat slugs for some ideas:

That's all for today. I'll try to work on skulduggery tomorrow. :)

So do they have human level intelligence, then?  Or slightly less? I'm really sorry if this was already answered and I didn't see it.

I would say they have human intelligence, yes. They think of things in their own ways and may have childish understandings of things. But individuals that strive to learn about the world become very knowledgeable.

Ah, I see.  So, with their telepathy: it says they can communicate with each other with it, but what about other species?

Oh wow those are gorgeous! Are you thinking of a mix of both of these species? :O or separate characters based off them? They sound awesome :D

I was thinking maybe a mix, I thought about the attachments they'd have and the colors. I just love the featheryness of the frosted nudibranch and the colors of the cratena peregrina, with its long anntenes :3

Nudibranches have been slowly surging to popularity on Dev. I wouldn't worry about it though, whats important is having fun and drawing what you love. :D
