well, mr Q .. can't leave this one without comment, can I? ;)
I'm impressed. really. It's so good I'm going to criticize it actually. one thing - light. Wht is there no reflection of the orange flames anywhere? the figures seem to be lighted with a green light - coming from the dragon (?) only. if you'd add some orange/red light to whatever the fireballs pass, it would give it even more depth, and sense of heat. also - the elf's hair is white - yet there is no single white light source I see. adjust those, and you'll have a true winner on your hands. Classy stuff. You have my humble congratulations.

Oh, Quellion! Now I know why Judith did mention you in this row where she asked for the gods(how the dwarven one is named) in this test. and i dared to laugh when I read this.

Picture looks like a story. Great work, Quellion! Yeah, the lighting is a bit distorted but that's also because I'm a fan of dynamic lighting!

Now where should we find a place where a drow/shadow elf helps a dwarf against a dragon mounted by some undead demon???

Or what kind of dragon could that be? If we can decide this, we can do a dragon entry first using the pic, and add the picture to a story/legend etc. later as well.

Thanks everybody! :D

The light I tried to keep a faint yellow coming mainly from the elf's hands. The little fireballs and fire trails also emit a very faint yellow light, but I admit is barely noticeable. I wanted to keep it dark, but I really don't know, maybe it should have been better with a more strong lightning, and more contrast.

Another thing I'm not sure now is about the spectral hand, it's hard to notice, and adds a little too much confusion to the pic. Maybe I tried to put too much things in the pic. Actually the sketch had a couple of characters more, that I finally left out :lol

In the overview an abyssal Dragon is mentioned, it has no entry, yet. It has some propoerties this pic wouldn't fit in but without an entry it might be adjustable(the entry I mean!)

BWT: Don't we have too many dragon kinds already? I mean these creatures are rare and we have more species of them than we have cows!
Would made more dragons more specified as indicidualn dragon with a name than another species...

( loves the sturdy Thergerim with his neat white braids sticking out, and his diamond-shaped scale mail!)

Man that is awesome. How long did it take? I can see the yellow illumination, and it looks good, but I think that the white hair being so bright is what kinda throws me off a little. Still amazing and a hell of a lot better than I could do. So keep it up!

Thanks Judith, there's another Thergerim in the works by the way (this one with my face on it, as it is for the Gallery of Souls at Epilogue, maybe I should change my name to Kwellion :D  )

Hard to say how much it took Erelen, as it was unfinished during some days of artist block; and the painting was therefore not continuous. But a good guess could be around 20-25 hours.

*haha* I assume I'd need approx. 1 human year for such a pic - well, to do it the way the people would know what I draw, quality excluded... :lol
