Centocephalic Dragon by Rodrigo-Vega Centocephalic Dragon by Rodrigo-Vega
This was meant as a commission for MetalSoldierc02 [link] , but then I was thinking to give it away for free, for some reasons we had. So, then is not for this contest [link] ...

About the creature; I didn't wanted to do anything that looked as if it couldn't walk as most 100 headed dragons. The main head is probably the one below the other ones, the one with the short neck, but the one with the longest set of horns in the middle is also more important than than most heads. The other ones are something between a snake and a sauropod, many of the heads are not seen on screen, some are on the other side and some are just lost inside the other necks, but I think it is not even necesary for it to have exactly 100, for easthetic reasons I decided to make it looking as if it had less, after all, centipedes do not have a hundred legs. To aid balance and efficiency I moved some heads to watch all over the body, by the way, the heads spit not fire but molten metal that has mass and therefore not only burn but also hits reaally hard. The wings are also used while walking, I've noted that dragons, being huge creatures usually don't do this, for reasons I cannot understand, since having an adittional set of limbs would be very useful to sustain an animal this size. I made a really heavy tail to conuterbalance the heads.
Thats all.

How would this dragon reproduce?

Rodrigo-Vega Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2013  Professional General Artist
Maybe it has as reaaaaally long, prehensile penis. Some animals do. Maybe it has some sort of external fecundation, maybe the male leaves spermatophores or maybe they go throught metamorphisis and it's got a different more movile life stage in which they reproduce.
Great question, thanks for asking :)

I've gotta say...I see the little man at the bottom of the picture, and can only imagine what's going through his head. Probably something like, "Awwwww, f*ck..." But seriously, I like how much more plausible you made this idea, as opposed to most people who just take a normal dragon body and slap 99 more heads on it. Just...awesome.

Wow Rodrigo, its been so long since you've uploaded this piece and even today, I'm still blown away at the raw talent it took to make this. I love sitting and just staring at it. This is without a doubt my favorite piece of artwork ever. No lie. I swear I'd kill to have a huge print or even the original hung up on my wall. Its just so incredible. Even now, im still having trouble describing how much I love this. So I'll resort to spanish. Que increible es este dibujo! haha, being half salvadorian ftw.

Awesome art. 'Though a comment on load bearing limbs, do you see birds using their wings to keep themselves up? I know bats use their wings a bit to help climbing, but don't put much weight on them. It's a good idea, and for a dragon that won't be able to fly I like it but it may just be better for thicker legs? Still, brilliant drawing.

While on flat ground bats support -at least- half of their weight with their arms, teh wings.
Pterodacyls also used their wings to support their weight while on ground, so we can say that in the evolution of vertebrates it's a third more common for flying animals to use their wings for loadbearing than to don't.

Holy wow, reading the artist comment, it made me love this even more than when I first set my eyes on it. I fell so scared looking at this as if its real and is going to take over the world xD. I mean.. if I saw this... I wouldnt even expect to live lol.

Just.. an amazing design, and Im happy to see that you took the balance into account, with the tail =]

Beautiful, only critique I would say is that I think the writing should have been hand written in script. Would have made it a touch more awesome, but that's minor in the massive beauty of this. Love the shading and detail.
