Assault on Garradoun by Netarliargus Assault on Garradoun by Netarliargus
The Most Noble Order of the Golden Sun squares off against the Red Dragon, Tholaxxius. They're using their ancient weapons to bring the monster down. Obviously since Laser Bows don't sound very fantasy-ish, I'll just call them Sun Bows.

Since it's taking longer then I'd expected to write the next chapter in the story, I figured I'd give you something to look at in the meantime. Done in CS 3 in about 10 hours. You could say I'm "warming up" for the final piece.

This picture is lovely and beyond amazing. I must know tho, does his wing have a rip in it? Because it disappears before his head and continues above his horns. My sis also wants me to mention that the back left leg looks a bit wonky. You probably already know this but we just wanted you to be aware of this :) We love your stories!

Oh, the wings were supposed to curve a bit like an umbrella and yes, you are right about the leg.
I am curious, what do you think of the Silver Throne so far?

I think its really good! I'm not much of a critique but I'm really happy to have something good to read about D&D dragons! Even though Balloch is a chromatic dragon I find myself rooting for him, and it almost surprised me that he could refrain from eating Duncan.(Though Silvers are my favorite dragons). I can't wait for another chapter to come out.
I find myself waiting in anticipation for your next dragon picture as well- your drawings are great!

I had to google that, it's a board game with a feudal Japan setting? I suppose you can compare it with that, but with dragons. Dragons make everything more awesome.

Points go to the dragon I guess. Although the Order of the Golden Sun profile themselves as the good guys.

Not really, just acting like the typical western dragons; you know, the burning, pillaging and princess-kidnapping kind.

I'm curious about his viking-dragon guy though, trying to bring back the old ways to the new world. Hope he'll achieve it on some level :D

Anyway here's Russian talk

[link]

О, смотрите вы пытаетесь использовать Google Translate расшифровать трудное шифра в мире ... Поэтому я начала с моим именем ... Меня зовут Николай, не давая фамилии! По соображениям безопасности, хотя на русском языке. Мне нравится пирог у меня есть синяя и красная комната на первом этаже моего один этаж дома. Прямо сейчас я листинга Авалон не ждите! Malebolge по Кеки Koybashi (извините, если я испортить его имя). Я играю в Ace Combat, но вы уже знаете, что ... Я надеюсь. К настоящему времени голове, возможно, лопающихся от всего две английские слова этих двух ближе к началу. Ха-ха-ха Вы с ума сошли? Я не являюсь, я люблю Россию, Родину всех водкой! Также домой Россия turnup?? Теперь я снова скопируйте этот в два раза.


O, smotrite vy pytaetesʹ ispolʹzovatʹ Google Translate rasshifrovatʹ trudnoe shifra v mire ... Poetomu ya nachala s moim imenem ... Menya zovut Nikolaĭ, ne davaya familii! Po soobrazheniyam bezopasnosti, khotya na russkom yazyke. Mne nravit·sya pirog u menya yestʹ sinyaya i krasnaya komnata na pervom etazhe moego odin etazh doma. Pryamo syeĭchas ya listinga Avalon ne zhdite! Malebolge po Keki Koybashi (izvinite, yesli ya isportitʹ yego imya). YA igrayu v Ace Combat, no vy uzhe znaete, chto ... YA nadyeyusʹ. K nastoyashchemu vremeni golove, vozmozhno, lopayushchikhsya ot vsego dve angliĭskie slova etikh dvukh blizhe k nachalu. Kha-kha-kha Vy s uma soshli? YA ne yavlyayusʹ, ya lyublyu Rossiyu, Rodinu vsekh vodkoĭ! Takzhe domoĭ Rossiya turnup?? Teperʹ ya snova skopiruĭte etot v dva raza.

TRANSLATION!

Oh, look you are trying to use google translate to decipher the hardest cipher in the world... So I will start of with my name... My name is Nikolai not giving the last name! For safety reasons even though in Russian. I like pie I have a blue and red room on the first floor of my one floor house. Right now I am listing to Avalon no wait! Malebolge by Keki Koybashi (sorry if I mess up his name). I play ACE COMBAT but you already know that... I HOPE. By now your head might have imploding by the only two English words are those two near the top. Ha-ha-ha you mad? I am not, I love Russia, the Motherland of all Vodka! Also home to the Russian turnup??? Now I re-copy this two times.

See wasn't so bad!

Very nice! The only thing I see is the minor detail that I can see the sky through the circle his neck forms when all I should see is the wing membrane considering were it is above his head. Other than that it's amazing.

Some guys apparently forgot to take their fire resistance potions before rushing off to fight a fire breathing dragon.

Laser bows? Where's the lightsabers damn it...
