What was supposed to be a fun get together amongst college friends to celebrate their pals 21st birthday suddenly turned into a painful and scaly nightmare after one of them decided to use the event as an opportunity to have his friends try his new brew. The idea was simple and the gesture was well-meaning; have a beer that not only tastes good but could also change its color to match whatever environment it was in, the same way a chameleon could camouflage with it's environment.
It wasn't a genius product by any means and he'd been struggling to make a mascot or name, but he figured that the aesthetics of it alone would have made the product at least sellable, especially after the first brew was a big success. However, during his second batch, he ran out of his ingredients half-way through and had to improvise to finish in time for the party. Already majoring in Chemical Engineering, he thought he'd help himself to a few of the College's resources to finish; the materials were practically the same thing right? Well, little did he know that during the brew's fermentation its composition changed and essentially turned the special brew into a chemical cocktail, a mutagen.
Now, instead of the liquid turning colors, it was his friends as they all began to painfully mutate into lizard/dinosaur hybrids. It wasn't exactly the most ideal birthday gift to turn his friends into gigantic 6ft reptiles, and he'd probably get expelled for this, but at least the product was a huge success and he wouldn't have any problems finding a mascot for it now...
A little practice with atmosphere on my end. I'm so slowly working my way up into doing more works where there's less of a 'background' and more of an 'enviornment' that the subjects are in, and in this case, it's a multiple leezard transformation. I'm beginning to apply what I'm learning in Comic Scene class into my works, (Finally) and so far I'm really liking the results. I'm not sure what compelled me to do this artwork other than the fact that I'd become really fed up with my work, my work rate, and my content. I'd been 'underperforming', at least in my eyes, and I needed to push things to another level to get past this art funk.
That and I've realized there aren't enough TF's on this site with multiple subjects transforming at once. I don't mean two people with a simple background (A habit I want to break) I mean a collective group TF with a story behind the scene. That's actually understandable however, if this genre has taught me anything it's that it's ALOT easier to draw a subject transforming and not worry about the background than it is to establish an environment, story, subject, etc.,
Oh, and I really wanted to draw lizard feet transforming :3 I blame Zharr18 and the big Tal-Rex for that. http://www.furaffinity.net/view/7775150/ I'm learning from Splyced and chaospawpaw how to do 'proper' tail tf's that are MUCH more aesthetic and interactive with the subject rather than "1, 2 RIIP here it is." (Another TF cliche' I'm guilty of)
I don't know about you guys, but that Frilla lizard TF seems really cool. I think it'd be awesome to have those flaps be able to extend at will. You know how many people you could jumpscare with that? Haha
Would you be mad if one of your best friends turned you into a giant lizard/dinosaur?
