The Dragon Wars (Chapter 1)
Chapter 1: Velore
For Velore, the day felt like any other day. He was out in the field harvesting wheat. Wheat was always in high demand in Gontopia. Farmers like Velore’s family had to harvest enough wheat to make enough bread to feed themselves, the villagers, and to sell to others in Gontopia.
Velore didn’t mind all the work. He had lived on the farm in Gontopia Field with his family for most of his life, so he was used to the hard work of harvesting. He always wore his grass-green tunic and brown pants when working in the fields.
“Velore! Time for supper!” his mother called out to him.
“Coming, mother!” he answered back. He gathered all the wheat he had reaped and carried it to the barn house.
He set the wheat down, went to the dinner table, and sat down with his father. Then mother placed their supper on the table: freshly baked bread.
As they ate their bread, Velore noticed the sword and shield hanging from t
Dragon Dreams - Chapter 9Chapter 9: Secrets
I was alone in my room. It was early Saturday morning, and my parents wouldn’t have been awake. Alex had gone back to her room. I flopped down on my bed and lay on my stomach, trying to sort out a million questions buzzing around after the nightmare. Time after time I went over my actions and asked the single question that was haunting me: was I really that dragon? Was the dragon who killed Alex really the same one that was lying on the bed?
It was simple. I had enjoyed the fight. It wasn’t some other creature that had occupied my mind and made me powerless. It was all me. I remembered every scratch and bite and blow, how I delivered them with fierce fury. I delighted in the chase. The instincts might have taken control, but I was still present to relish every drop of blood spilled.
And the magic. I was no longer filled with joy at the thought of using it. My wilder mind had turned to ruthless violence using magic, and now I regarded it with
The Dragon's PlaguesChapter 1
Cling cling cling went a hammer onto a sword in the forge. A young boy working diligently on his work, constantly checking his work for mistakes. Frowning at his own craftsmanship he put the sword back into the white hot coals to reheat. “Austin how’s that sword coming alone?” called a voice from the front of the black smith’s shop. “It’s coming along well!” Austin replied, shifting the sword a little deeper into the coals. “That order is due this evening while you have it done?” came the voice again. Austin panicked and pulled the sword from the fire. He looked it over closely and after a moment his green eyes glowed silver. The unfinished blade flowed like water as it began to take form. When it was finished he held a shining sword hilt and all. “Austin why aren’t you answering me?” shouted a man as he came into the back room. Austin wiped the sweat from his brow and held up the sword “Its finishe
Learning to fly on a dragon (Bill and Spark)It was an early autumn, partly cloudy, afternoon in the mountains where Spark the dragon lived, years before moving to Bill’s house. They two had been knowing each other for one and a half years, and Bill always tried to find the opportunity to walk in the mountains in order to visit him. The more time he spent with dragons, the more he learned; about the mountains, about the animals, surviving skills and dragons’ way of thinking, which was fairly less self-centered than humans’. But that day he would learn something even dragon lover longs for.
They two were in a meadow together with Spark’s childhood friend Zoroff, whose scales were red, contrasting with Spark blue ones. It was only second time Bill and Zoroff had met, so they had spent a great time talking to each other about life as a human/dragon. After a while, both the dragons turned their heads back.
“What’s?” asked Bill.
“Oh…our fathers” explained Spark “they wa

Art contest (Artist development project)While most contest rate the skill and experience, this one doesn't! Everyone can join freely without any fear of losing because of their not-advanced skills.
The main focus of this contest is to develop our artistic skills and expand our minds. You may take it as a challenge or a experience, I'll use myself as an example:
I'm a digital and traditional artist, mainly focused on creatures. I want to participate on this contest and I'm interested on drawing places or manmade stuff, something I have not really practised enough. So I do my research, sketches or a painting of what I want to study (the level of depth and development on the new subject is completely up to you!).
It could end up there, but I may want to start working with, let's say, wall paintings. It's the same process, but different subject. It would go further if I tried writting, photography, playing an instrument or even dancing!
Requests in exange of critique (Update)
As you may have seen I'm currently doing huevember challenge and the theme is "realistic characters" Therefore after I finish working on my four characters I'll be open to request for the remaining slots. However the only condition is that you may leave a comment on the last drawing uploaded of this challenge, critiquing any aspect of it.
Afterwards I'll select the most complete one and I'll note that person to ask for their oc ^^
You may critique the last drawing uploaded.
Do your best! Don't try to praise me, I want to hear mistakes above everything else.

UPDATE: I started a new challenge for december, which is focused on enviroments. The dynamic is still the same, so I still encourage you to critique my artwork! This is the first of this new series

$20 Traditional And Digital Commissions! OpenOpened up commissions because I need money for bills.
Update: Bills are now paid! Now I just need money for the event listed below and for pet food. I just need two more spots filled.
Originally, it was for my Halloween costume project, but an issue with the web hosting site (for my website) cause me to become low on cash (it's entirely my fault. Life got crazy again and I forgot to turn off auto-renewal). And if I can get some extra commissions in, it will help me have enough to attend NARBC Tinley so I can see my friends up there (folks I haven't seen in almost 2 years and friends I would finally be meeting for the first time. I am also meeting a friend there to deliver a commission for her). Will help me with pet food, too.
Please! Any help would be appreciated! A huge thank you to those who have already commissioned me.
Animals, fantasy creatures, anthropomorphics (and furries), and plants only. Any style or realism level you want.Will be done on 8.5 x 11 inch (or 8 x 1
