Wow, I haven't actually sat down to draw something in just over 2 years O.O; This here is a basic design, so the colouring is sorta slapped on there.
WTF is a luck dragon, right? Luck dragons are a species I created a few years back but didn't do too much with. There are Western, Norther, Eastern, and Southern Luck Dragons. A universal feature is they all have a horn of some form on their head (much like a unicorn) which acts as a sort of lightening rod to absorb energy. You see, luck dragons survive by absorbing positive energy or "luck" from other creatures. These creatures will suffer a series of unfortunate events until death occurs in a horrific, freak accident.
In order to absorb the energies unnoticed, luck dragons select a favorite morph so they can hide among the poor, unsuspecting animals (could even be human, although human morphs are rare as it's very difficult to pull off).
Gaia's morph is an elk, she supports a set of small "beginner" antlers to show pride in her chosen morph.
As luck dragons absorb more energy they grow. Luck dragons can live indefinitely as long as there is an energy source. Excess energy is stored in a ball near the absorption horn (as seen on Gaia). After the area is filled, the excess energy will manifest itself upon the dragon itself in any given number of ways (dragon has no control of how it manifests). Gaia has large energy runes as well as energy rings. Spare energy can be used to create a shield or be used as a weapon (like an energy beam) if the dragon is threatened. Once the spare energy is used in this way, it cannot be reclaimed.
These are the main stages in a luck dragons life: Whelp, Youth, Teen, Young Adult, Adult, Elder, Ancient, Legend
As luck dragons grow they become more "epic" if you will. More complex designed, more horns, more wings, more everything!
Gaia is a young adult.
Luck dragons are not evil, though some may develop a sadistic personality finding pleasure in watching their victims suffer through trials until death claims them. Some Luck dragon do not wish to partake in the energy theft and cut off their own horns ensuring they cannot absorb the energy they need to live. These are called Starvation Dragons and will often die by adulthood or sooner.
Gaia is VERY ambitious and is constantly seeking out new victims (thus why she has so much excess energy around her).
These are not an open species and there is a TON of info missing. I'm working on a full species explanation.
I had wanted to create a dragon species that people who don't normally have dragon characters could get into. The luck dragons morph allows people to have a dragon that can also be a character they are more comfortable drawing or role playing as while secretly, it's still a dragon in disguise causing all kinds of mischief. The fact that luck dragons constantly evolve over their life span also allows for endless customizing and changing of the character, which I personally like.
More info on the way soon (I hope).
