" You MUST include a link in the description of your final submission leading to a 'mid-development' source (image or video) showing the entry is your original creation"

I think that this rule won't stop an art thief with ambitions.

Should I do a dragon and kitten sort of circling each other, almost prowling, or should I make them in intense clashing combat..?

I am at the moment torn between trying to do an cool fighting stance, likely cel-shaded or a super cute babies play fighting that will have soft blended colours

*Unimportant yet funny*

Was searching on google for dragons vs kittens and this video popped up, soooo cute >>>

It's very helpful, It really helped me with male anatomy.
Cool start to it, I'm curious to see what the outcome will look like :)

Looks sick!

Are we allowed to do an animal like a rat, mouse, squirrel or rabbit as our kitten considering that their young can all be called kittens? Or do we have to stick to the felines? Can we do big cats like lions in kitten form?
