Seeker and Deklitch were alone on the trail as the slope begain an incline.   Deklitch broke from his discussion on his upcoming compendium entries "  I hope we are almost to the Holiday Party, the clouds are gathering and I see lightning on the horizon.  How close are we Seeker?"

Seeker gave Dek a sly smile.  "Sorry my friend we have taken a detour.  I would have told you sooner but I was afraid you would protest"

"Why would I protest"  Deklitch cautiously asked.

Just at that moment the companions turned a corner.... a huge ROOAAR greeted them..... The duo jumped back behind the rocks....before them was a spectacular site....... A lightning dragon.

Comments welcome (This draft is about 90% complete, but I need inspiration from your comments to bring it the rest of the way.)

I am going to be a meanie, and make you change the title to Drake. :p As the entry will be changed as well. :D

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE

Perhaps add a bit more lightning about the drake itself? and make the ones in the background thicker?

Deklitch runs and hides beneath a rock somewhere.

Seeker, I think you will be chained to my draconic dungeon in the near future :p

Wow! The light is wonderful. I agree, though--more lightning might look really cool, but you might have to see. It might look bad, too.

Well, Kalina, you know what this means: time to finish that entry! (You're going to help me with a myth, right?  Big Grin)

Don't think you can get away with writing a myth without *MY* help! Between Kali and myself, we have you covered.  thumbup

I just thought of another question, and this would be directed towards both Rayne and Seeker:

Do they make their nests out of grasses and twigs like birds, or would they use crevasses in the rocks? or even perhaps burrow in the ground/sand?

I was thinking the same thing Kalina.
Wouldn't sticks and such be a fire hazard with the electricity that arcs from them though?

Thanks for the positive response everyone.  :D That really makes me excited.  I will mess around the lightening a bit and see how it looks.  i will also make the nest a bit more rocky but will keep alot of the stringy animal skin as well.  I also need to add in the drippy saliva (I forgot about that).

I'll wait to update it .....I am sure I wiill get some more suggestions.

Kalina- I would love to work more in the draconic arena.  However it will be on a volunatry basis  grin.   Let me know if you have any specific entries you would like drawn.

Seeker, I'm still looking and brooding over it..

Something is wrong with the lightning, have to look at some photographs though to be able to tell what.
The dark stroke on its right wing lets me believe, that it is as thick as that dark stroke, don't think, you have intended this.

Otherwise - impressing!

I guess the rock on which the dragon is sitting on is extremely dark, so this adds a bit to an unrealistic effect. Especially if you open the picture with the standard Windows fax/pic viewer you see the picture with a white border around it and the rock is practically entirely swallowed with an outside light influence. So I'd suggest to work a bit on that rock and give it more texture to balance the picture a bit in this regard.

Also the dragon wings might use some additional texture at the very bright spots, looks a bit uneven at the moment.

But overall this is heading in the right direction!  thumbup
