Before there was Game of Thrones, there was Saint George and the Dragon. In Vittore Carpaccio’s 16th-century painting, the heroic Saint George rides fearlessly toward the menacing dragon and plunges his lance through its head. Legend has it that the valiant knight rode his steed from the town of Cappadocia, Turkey toward the city of Silene (Libya) upon hearing tales of a fire-breathing dragon. In fact, the dragon’s breath was rumored to be poisonous. And to appease the ferocious beast, residents of Silene would give it two sheep to eat as sacrifice. When the town eventually ran out of sheep: enter Saint George. ⚔️
The focal point of the sound design revolves around the ferocious attack from the dragon towards St George. Created using layers of sounds to build elements from a background nature ambience, the horse riding over bones and all of the dragon's vocalisations and attacks.

The dragon has it's own voice made from processed animal recordings layered over voice recordings processed with Reformer Pro. RP allows performing foley and morphs an input with other sounds adding further dimension to the creature.

Essentially turning my dragon roar attemps into something more conviencing! The finishing touches capture the gory death and intensity of the fireball blasts.
