A.E. Book 1: Cover

~Parch the Dragon inhabits a world which once sang with magic. But hundreds of years ago this magic mysteriously faded. Dragons, once aglow, are now reduced to plain scaly beasts with an almost primal lifestyle. But Parch, without a known cause, was born with magical fire abilities. He and his brothers, Scorch and Scald, are the only ones who know... and they must keep it secret for the sake of Parch's life. Parch will ultimately be drawn to find out what happened to his world's magic all those centuries ago.~



UPDATE June 2 2017: I have finally-bo-binally finished this! You now behold the complete version, no longer the work in progress. :P But if you want to see the old version and look at what I changed, you can still see it here: sta.sh/01fatgfmnyzq (Yes I did make the canvas size larger; it has to do with the possible print version. :meow: )

This is taking a while to fully complete and might take a while still, so I'm putting this WIP here as a sort of placeholder (this is one of the things that has to be here before I actually start PAGES xP ). Once the final version is ready, I'll update this deviation and all watchers will be notified. :) I know this cover kind of LOOKS finished, but there are still a number of things I wish to do to it... for example:

1) The lighting on Parch needs work, as well as on the castle
2: Parch's shadow on the ground needs to be bigger/darker
3: He needs a little pile of rocks for his fire
4: More trees in the background, around the hill
5: Some waterfalls coming off the plateaus in the far distance


Also, 'Book 1' means that I plan on delivering this comic in 'Books', which are in turn divided into Chapters... this is another allowance for a possible printed version; if I grouped the WHOLE comic into ONE printed book it would be ENORMOUS, and also cost a fortune (CreateSpace would see to that with their price thresholds). :XD: So I figure it would be much more practical to divide any printed versions into smaller chunks. :3

(You can see it has a very similar composition to the old LoS-Accidental cover: fav.me/d3jo9a2 =P )

Wow, amazing how much you've improved. Back then I used to absolutely love your first cover, now I can kinda see that there where a bunch of flaws but this one- it's just breathtaking.
