It's by no means an epic, but it has a great simplistic feel to everything. Give it a go, it'll take less than an hour of your time.
I was talking with a friend who mused about the lack of fanart for Dragondot. After all, it would be really easy! So I made some, with my incredible (no exaggeration here at all!) arting skills.
I decided that, in three dimensions, the dots are actually more like cylinders. And because nothing living is a cylinder in shape, clearly they are actually mechanical in nature. There you go!
The indentation around the middle is meant to be a track for the tail to sweep around on. You can't see it because it's behind him, of course.
