Very cool idea and execution. The only "issue" I have with this is that I associate the hi-tech dragon with something like Terminator which makes it seem less "trustworthy" than a cuddly green dragon. But maybe that's just me, hah.

@hipersayan_x
Maybe i'll do that but i'm pretty busy right now.

@Hans
My english is really bad but i'll try to defend my idea:
For myself, i always thinking that's weird to choose a medieval green creature for an high-tech desktop interface.
For me, KDE is an extremly modern and efficient desktop and this is i try to express in that's work.
I also try to leave him a sympathetic side but maybe it's not enought.
PS; don't misunderstand, i like the original konqui ;).
Have a good day.

Thanks everyone.

@genosias: Don't worry, your English is perfectly fine.

I think I've seen too many robots vs humans movies. ;D Your Konqi just looks very high-tech and advanced (compared to e.g. the walking trashcan Android), so I guess that's why I feel a bit "threatened".

Just an idea - maybe you could try to make his eye look more "friendly". I usually associate blue/green with good guys, so that's something you could try.

This is still my favorite submission. I especially like how you've kept the scarf.
