Today’s random word was Silicon.
I balked a bit at the random word, then I looked it up. At first, I had nothing to go on until I read:
“Two allotropes of silicon exist at room temperature: amorphous and crystalline. Amorphous appears as a brown powder while crystalline silicon has a metallic luster and a grayish color.”
So with that in mind, I hashed out this:
And that wasn’t working at all. I got caught up in a nifty head shape and hadn’t left enough room for a body, nor the amorphous dragon that I had planned to drop on the left side. So I stopped working on that and actually plotted my drawing, and came up with these:
I’ll probably never draw these again, but it was a useful exercise.
