Krayt Dragon by jeddibub Krayt Dragon by jeddibub
An image I've been dreaming up for a while but finally it came to realisation over the last two days.

The character featured is that belonging to c2usaf2004 , Jacen Nojes. In the character's profile it mentioned that he owned two lightsabers, one a dual phase purple, the other a silver single blade with a Krayt Pearl as it's crystal. Krayt Pearls are only found in the stomach of Krayt Dragon so for Nojes to own one he must have killed/found one. This immediately caught my attention and I just had to illustrate the more dynamic option. ;)

The Krayt Dragon design I've used here is heavily influenced by Terryl Whitlatch, a true master of creature design. I positively hate that four legged, triceratops thing that I've seen in several screenshots from some computer game, looks too much like your conventional dragon. Whitlatch's version is a lot less dragon influences and is an impressive design with no less than ten legs with which it can dive through mountains of sand. I took a few liberties here and there for dynamics and personal taste. :)

Always liked the krayt dragon: managed to look quire unique while remaining inherently draconic.

Actually, to dispel all confusion, this is a Greater Krayt Dragon, while the smaller Quadrupeds are simply Krayt Dragons.

Excellent artwork, somthing to note though is that krayt dragons are Quadropeds, meaning they only have four legs.

This is wicked. I love the dragon, too. Poor little Jedi, about to see the Krayt pearl in its natural habitat.

I got the book aswell, and the greater Krayt dragon is a subspecies of the "normal" one, so these are two different creatures. The skeleton of the greater krayt can be found in tatooine and C3PO walks by it in "A New Hope".

Anyways really nice work!
