This terrifying, glorious creature is an Earthquake Dragon, whose body is connected to the fabric of the earth that he destroys. And he's just one of dozens in this collection of concept designs created on the theme of Earthquake Dragons.
Over at the blog ArtOrder, a group of concept designers spent the past week coming up with designs that fit the theme. I'm already in love with the idea of Earthquake Dragon, which is such an evocative phrase. Does it mean a dragon who causes earthquakes? Who is somehow the physical embodiment of an earthquake? Or who is magically linked with earthquakes, and so is perhaps summoned by them? The artists in this gallery have come up with their own interpretations, and they're all brilliant.
