The challenge was

A new year means a new you—claws, scales, and all.

Summon a dragon from your own imagination.

According to the Chinese calendar, 2024 is the Year of the Dragon—more specifically, the Wood Dragon! The dragon represents a wide variety of traits including, but not limited to, good luck, health, strength, and power. Dragons can be beautiful and wise, and, believe it or not, friendly! Very different from the dragons we know from Game of Thrones and The Hobbit!

Will yours be inspired by Chinese culture, deeply rooted in the Lunar New Year? Or will you take a simpler, funnier approach on lazy dragons who be draggin’ their feet? The spectrum of possibilities is at an infinite…scale. All puns aside, the concept of dragon is broad and, well, up to you! All we ask is that you do not disparage anything culturally important with your version of a dragon.

Now, dig your talons into this challenge, and soar to creative heights never before seen!
