This is a very rough sketch of my intial idea which was based on St George and the Dragon.

This is a more refined version. But I'm not overly impressed and a few people are doing mechanical horses.

Just thought I'd show a little of the horse idea before I move on to the next concept.

This is the new concept. It's not based on any myths anymore really just on the dragon element with a bit of a twist. The idea is that like elephants, mechanical steam powered dragons go to some kind of mythical graveyard. This is a brief insight into the lives of some explorers who have found this place.

This is the basic composition for the piece. I'm going change a few things obviously but the final pic will basically be the same as this.

In terms of style I'm going to go for a coloured version of Simon Bisley Esq type image from the 2000AD strip ABC warriors. I'm going to pencil the whole piece out then ink it and then scan into photoshop and colour.

This is a sketch of an object that will sit on the forehead of the dragon.

This is getting more like the final composition I want. As this is more of a thumbnail sketch on an A6 pad I'm going to draw the image up onto A4 and see where that takes me.

This is heading towards the final composition. Next I'm going to layout the final composition on on A3.
