Here I bring a short background story about my monster design: The Red Dragon.

“The Red Dragons are lizard-like monsters who were born from fire and inhabit volcanic environments. From ancient times, these fire reptiles have lived there, and when they get angry or feel they are in danger, they provoke that a volcano begins erupting. They have a strong and rocky ember cover all over their back and tail, which is used for attacking and self-protection. The ember antenae are used for communicate with each other. Their toes are strong claws that make crawling over rocks much easier, so they can run quick even on their unfavourable environment.”
