I thought long about this concept but the final idea came to me right as I was going to sleep, a giant dragon skeleton entwined in massive roots.
But what happened here? Feel free to think up a backstory behind this place!
A twig snapped underneath my boot, breaking the awed silence that had befallen me and my companion.
Emerging from the forest, the sight shook me to the core. You grew up hearing about it, the great beast, its mouth open in its last roar of defiance that was now forever silence. But nothing could have prepared me for the actual sight... It stood as a reminder to us all, its shadow looming over the city below never letting the inhabitants forget of the time when our lands were ruled by mighty beasts. Yet we had won.
This thought I had the most trouble comprehending. The sheer size of the monster had to be seen to be believed, it's wingspan alone stretching as long as the cliff face behind it stood tall. How could one human have prevailed over such a beast?
But he had...
One lone man, a traveller to the common eye but deep within his veins, magic ran deep. The last dragon had no hope, or that is how they tell the story. That the beast, although the oldest and last living dragon to terrorise the skies and lands below was no match for the spirits that bowed before the mage. He had entombed it in the land that it had once ruled. Not dead just frozen.
I felt a shiver run through me as I looked up at the skull, at the holes that still seemed to hold eyes and a hidden power. Magic in the land had died out along ago.
Well, this is my first post. I looked around the space art category a bit and found that many people have done this before. Nevertheless, here's my own version! The idea was to make one side good and the other evil. I hope you like it!
That's my entry, finally over. I tried to put the best I can do at the moment. Over 9000 hours of work, I dropped all other works to try this shot, the perfect opportunity to self challenge and self improvement.
Very impressive entries, one of the hardest contests I ever seen on DA. People really love creatures.
In Productions class we developed an indie game called Fists of Ymir. Norse themes. No enemies. More about speed; running and jumping through environments as fast as you can.
Features a thief named Sevran [ hero on the cliff side there] who steals a pair of large gauntlets that turn his body into fire and water. The main boss fought is a giant ice golem [ large evil silhouette there ] who is controlled by a big nasty viking warlord. The same warlord that Sevran stole the very map to find the gauntlets!
A group of outlanders were surprisingly welcomed in a battle they never would have thought to have. It was a General's order. While these outlanders had some acquaintance with the subject, then they are not an expert. It was an armed sentry placed by the General to watch for intruders.
A concept art I made for a MMO game project 《THOR》 of Lager Network - Chateau of Dark Moon.
When the brave heroes attempted to investigate what lies within the Chateau of Dark Moon - An old and stale manor of the Dark Moon Duke, a noble man who turned into a monster - They heard something stirred in the shadow. It's the minions of the Dark Moon Duke! They marched back to their nest from a raid, clearly there were some poor victims tonight. The vicious winged creatures filled the sky with harsh, unpleasant squeak. The full moon guided the army of darkness home with chill light.
