I would´ve worked further on that one, getting rid of some dumb mistakes I made, but SAI kept freezing and pseudo-crashing after every stroke I made so I called it a day. 
I feel that my laptop is making his last convulsions......

Well lately I worked alot on my lore and story and I came up with the final scenes for some of my main characters (how they die and how the story will end), and while hearing "The Last One Alive"  by Demon Hunter, I suddenly got the idea of Zola giving a last farewell to the spirit of her adoptive father Schattenschleicher. Well, and I drew this. 

I hate shading green it always looks weird......

Zola and Schattenschleicher belong to me, GelangweilterToaster and are part of my lore Flames of Reckoning

Schattenschleicher...stirbt?...Bitte entschuldige mich...*wiegt sich in der Ecke sitzend vor und zurück während sie sich die Augen ausheult*

Aber dieses Bild ist ein mehr als würdiger Abschied für unseren tapferen Krieger. Es erinnert mich ein wenig an ein Ritual, als ob die Seele eines Drachen erst durch das Gebrüll eines anderen Drachen die höheren Gefilde erreicht, was auch immer das sein mag.

Naja ich dachte darüber nach, wie ich die Geschichte am besten Enden lasse, und sein Tod ist eigentlich das optimale Ende, vor allem für ihn. Der Kämpfer wird im Kampf untergehen bevor er dann ein letztes Gespräch mit Umbra hat und dann in Aeternium in die Halle der Helden einkehrt. 

Naja so ähnlich kann mans sehen. Nur dass der Drachen-Teil seiner Seele einfach wieder zu Magie wird.

Gut, ich kenne die Geschichte nicht ganz, aber auf einen Krieger trifft das wahrscheinlich zu. Klingt ein wenig wie die Legenden von Valhalla.

Das ist auch schön.

Jaaa Valhalla war so bissle meine Inspiration dafür.

das hab ich mir bisher überlegt (auszug aus nem Sykpe gespräch) :

so my basic idea is, that he´s in a fight with some extremely huge demon or the Dark Lord (not sure about this atm tho), and for the final strike he does, he´ll put up with a deadly injury, like a huge thorn piercing his stomach, to defeat the beast. As the enemy lies there, dead and defeated and Schleicher´s mission actually being completed, he´d pull out this thorn with a smile and the words: "Just wait for me Lana, I´ll now enter a very long lasting dream."
and then he dies from bloodloss on the rests of the battlefield

Heh thanks. I'm not very happy with the outcome tho. Thanks to dumbass SAI and my dying laptop -.-

The scales are always the worst when doing shading. ahaha especially on her, because her species is called Shimmerscale.
(Which doesnt look like it in this picture because again...dumb laptop)

You're welcome. 
Personally, you got a nice shimmer on her scales. 

But seriously, I know exactly how you feel with a dumb and dying laptop. I just spent four days upgrading and changing the specs on it. And I'm still going. (stupid computers)

Don't worry, you did this one really well.

Well depends on if you try to use collored lightsources to shade green. Its hard to make it look good. I prefer terra tones like orange, brown and gold. They are the best to shade

Awesomely done man! :D both SS and Zola look framing amazing! :D the pattern and shading on Zola's scales all come together too. And just love that misty, mysterious look of SS in the background. :D
