I want to say I am sorry for my decreased workload over the past couple of months as well as getting behind on seeing and responding to the artwork of friends and my watches but I have been busy lately. As of yesterday I have begun a 3-year course in CG art and animation which includes film studies, Photoshop courses and using software like Autodesk Maya to make 3D models.
University culture lately has put much more emphasis on work and output so I have less time for my own stuff which is a shame because lately I really want to push though with developing the Draconid Imperium so I might squeeze out the hours if I can to work on them into a really solid IP. (I might consider components of the idea into my work although any piece made for university can't be commercialised afaik). Why am I considering it? Well I'd have to thank my new course leader who after seeing that most of the digital work portfolio I showed him (which included digital art requests and models/scenes made in Spore) realised I have a rather huge and deep universe behind them.
I'm also planning on a rename to one of a couple. For a long time I have indicated on Sporewiki that their native name is "Drak'onis" ("Draconis" being a corruption like how "Paragon" is a corruption of "paragavatus". In High Dracid the word means "dweller [of] [Lake] Drak"). To me "Drak'onis" is fine but then there's the plurals and connectives given. So what I'm thinking.
For plural either Drak'onis or Drak'onii, for possessive (i.e. something that belongs to them) perhaps Drak'onida, and state of being (I.e. a title) perhaps Drak'oniag (main reason that in Dracid -ii is for plural words, -da is for possessive words and -ag is for when something is something but is not a noun.)
For now here's a compilation of the relevant Draconid Compendium images for what I am dubbing as the new-model Draconis. Since deviantArt's submissions have their dates of publishing recorded I can keep a record of all these images and when I did them. Sorry if some of them look a bit scruffy, they're only ideas after all.
If anyone has any scientific or anatomical advice for any of this I would love to hear any suggestions.
