And again it turned out GREAT!!!

Boah, those details at the body of the dragon, on the wings, on the tail, the clouds of smoke in the background, the claws, the fires, the small river floating there, all those other dragons - and of course Katya and company whom we have seen already before - everything was done perfectly and fits into the picture:)  I can even see the Warnaka Highlands in the background (so it must be the Bolder Forest which is burning!!)... Furthermore the motion of the characters now can very well be seen - and i simply love this shiny armour Lysander wears on his feet - great! (Sorry can't find anything I don't like at this pic...)

The composition with Ol'dem'brey on the top left and the really tiny figures in comparison to the dragon on the bottom right make his appearance even more dominant. It really looks as if Ol'dem'brey would fly out of the image every moment... Aaaaaargh... Hiding behind the chair, then slowly reappearing. - So simply: Wow!

And if we can crop out even more dragons from this pic, the better! Looking forward to the full version (but let's wait for other comments and especially Dalá first). You can mail the full pic in similar format then as you did with the Eyrin & party pic and I'll see what I can crop and use for seperate entries...

Yeah, it's somehow gone!?? Had some difficulties already yesterday accessing it a second time, but it worked the first time...

Okeydokey, so I retrieved it from my Temporary Internet files, uploaded it to the Santharian server and here it is:

thank you Grey.. I'm glad you two liked it, I had some major critique on it, so I removed it from the gallery (mostly due to my own dissatisfaction with it). sorry about that.
I do like the scales on the dragon though..
p.s. Art, the jpg file is 4 mb+ - what should I do? email or upload?

Major critique?? Who said what and why? Or what are you dissatisfied with? This could go straight to a bookcover!!! You need to explain this... Really don't know what you're worried about, Faugar!

Hmmm... I'd say ZIP it and then mail it to me, preferable to the artimidor@aon.at account, cause larger files can last a while at Yahoo sometimes.

I mailed Dalá yesterday evening so that I perhaps might catch her before she travels to Hong Kong and get her approval for this update perhaps, but I guess I've missed her (or the picture was already removed).

I'm really asthonished. The pic is really great. Don't get why people would have major critique on it. The only minor critique I have is that it looks like his wings start under his belly. I always imagined the wings growing from the back of the dragon But the way you did it would give the dragon more muscle for its wings I guess.

well, the clouds look poor, the dragon has no fingers (how stupid is that?!).. the overall image has no impact.. it's just not perfect ;)
I'll try to email it. let me know if it came thru.

Everything arrived savely, Faugar!

But I in no way can understand your concerns:

1.) The clouds are smoke clouds to me (should they be normal clouds?), and as smoke clouds they are perfect.

2.) Dragon has no fingers? I've looked at other dragon pics from the "Death Gate Cycle" (where there are a lot of them) and in comparison to these pics your version simply looks better if you put everything together, also concerning the claws. It looks much more realistic if you ask me. Also the wings which resemble more gigantic arms look good. Wings are different on other pictures, but it's good that you have other wings.

3.) No impact??? I don't feel safe anymore when I see this dragon approaching - what more impact can you want??

The clouds are great!

The dragons might be all to colorful but that's a question of taste.

The only thing that might not fit into the scene is IMO the light situation. You've a dramtic moment with lots of smoke and fire around but it looks like it would be midday.
When the lighting would be more according to the situation it can be perfectly used to highlight Katya and the dragon which would then turn oput just gorgeous!

This is the only thing I can moan at. The dragons are great as well as the persons. The surroundings are fitting and the clouds are just what they're supposed to be : smoke clouds and they're gorgeous! Hope you feel better now! :)

I personally think that it's good that there is blue sky in the background. Gives the impression that an idyllic land was suddenly invaded by an evil and that fate is now descending upon Voldar...

P.S. You should probably check if your critique is wearing such a yellow ribbon with three black dots, Faugar! :evil

I'm only referring to Dala's story here. There it is stated that Voldar has been attacked for days already so it would be logical that everything is in dark and we see great(fabulous) fires on the painting. I would just think that some dynamic lighting in the foreground might somewhat spice it up.

Other than that the detail is great as well as the pose of the dragon and Katya. Everything fits! ;)

Great Faugar!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers

Short note: We had a bit of downtime Friday/Saturday night due to a server change. Site went online first, message boards took a while longer - now everything should be back to normal.
