Only four entrants this week, but they are four heavy hitters who all swing for the fences. Well that is enough with the baseball metaphors for today. Let's have a look at all of them.
In 4th place we have Kellkin.
The way you masked the reptile tail onto the body is a stroke of genius and really adds to the transformation. My only criticism is his apparent size. Guanlong were small and swift members of the tyrannosaur family, and this guy looks a bit lumbering.
In 3rd place we have HerrD
I love seeing your name in the entries because your work always has such a fascinating story within it. Well done sir!
So no we some to the top two...
Ubiquitous Pixel: The word Guanlong literally means "five coloured crested dragon" which you got down beautifully, and the markings on the tail and arms are great. The only drawback is that the choice of clothing seems somewhat random and perhaps unnecessary.
AMS: As always the work is stunning, and I feel like this guy can move...and move fast.The musculature makes sense for the character, and while i love the base colour, It would be nice to have some other coloured markings and a more prominent crest.
So what I would like to do if both Ubiquitous Pixel and AMS are ok with it, is name them both winners, but instead of doing a rendering for each, actually morph these two designs together, taking the best parts of each, and adding some features of my own, to create an all new Guanlong. Let me know what you think guys.
Your prize will appear on the blog later this week.
Thanks to all who entered.
Thanks for the compliments! I also appreciate how in depth you went for this contest!
My version’s choice of clothes were more like stretchy pants for when he turns back and forth between human and creature.
But for the last question, I’d love to see you morph both into one creation! That’s a really cool idea! Excited to see it.
Thanks for the critique and I will add some more colors and prominent crest to my pic to complete the concept.
I am also down for a morph of the two pics. Should be interesting…..

. . . Now I like that compliment better than I’ve liked winning . . . story for me is where all art comes from. Thank you. Looking forward to your morph of theirs.
