"For what your race have done I hunt you,
slay you and I will never forgive you.
You think you can destroy my race?
Slaughter our family and our friends?
Rape our women and get away with it?
I will ruin your plan.
I am here to protect this planet and to protect my kind.
You shall never do something like that again.
You shall never rest because I hunt you like animals.
Fear me lizard beings, because I am your curse."
A GIFT FOR
Showing his character Aurun in one of his forms.
EDIT: It seems I need to clerify it, since still some people are misinterpreting the drawing's meaning.
There is NO HUMAN on the drawing + I have NO REASON to call humans lizard beings, since they're not slit-eyed scaled creatures.
That means: The poem is NOT dedicated to the human race, I am alluding to a complete different humanoid race with features of lizards.

Why do I need to? It's really obvious that that would take almost no-
Next Mortal Kombat game looks amazing!
Wow, dieses Bild hat eine kräftige Botschaft und unterdrückte Gefühle, die nun raus sind!
Und die Gefühle die du erwähnst sind mir sogar ziemlich unbewusst ins Bild hineingeglitten, erklärt aber wieso ich mich seitdem noch besser fühle
Wonderful job as always!
The detail and lighting is awesome, and this is a traditional media work!
Wow! Really, FATALITY! lol, sorry, fighting game fan.
Let me guess, you also interpreted the poem as if it was dedicated to humans?
If so, please just explain me why,because you're not the first one who's making the mistake, and I really don't get why people assume this so often. What do I need to change to make it more clear?
I already added "lizard beings" to the 'poem', to make it clear it's about the creature and its race I drew under Aurun's feet.
The link above should make it even more clear, because I am implying with this work to a more or less known conspiracy theory about reptilian humanoids.
Ich nimms definitiv als Kompliment auf, es gelingt mir nicht oft martialische Bilder zu kreieren!
I can hardly believe the level of awesome that this achieves!!!
My trouble is that I have a hard time thinking in pictures. I tend to think in sounds, words, and feelings. It's very hard to draw those fundamentally brief experiences. The longer I hold an image in my mind and try to draw it, the more it changes. The only time I've had good luck drawing something over a long period of time was when i was doing a sketch of a dragon statue I own. I changed it from what the figure is doing, but that kind of happened as I went along. My drawing "defeated in the rain" was only possible because of another's vision and some youtube music I played while drawing. Do you have any tips for me? Do you have any trouble holding an image in your head why trying to draw it?
First of all, thank you so much, that is a great compliment!
That's a good question, but I think in this case our minds work a bit differently. Because I always thought in pictures, but also in words sometimes.
As soon as I have a picture in mind, it doesn't leave or change... at least not in my mind, but often on the paper :-/ Sometimes my skills aren't enough yet to draw what I have in mind, and sometimes the picture evolves somehow "an own life" and changes.
But maybe you should always listen to music while drawing? Did you try it?
Maybe music supports your vision/imagination and it's easyer to hold the picture in your mind?
Otherwise I haven't other ideas... what also could help is observing your enviroment, the nature, animals... to train your vision.
It's interesting that our minds work differently. I wonder if I can train mine to hold an image in my head? That would be interesting. I'll have to look into it. It might also be that I need a different medium to work with. Hmm... I'll definitely use your advice. Thank you.
I will definately try drawing with music. I bet that would help. Now to find the right music for the right picture. *grins*
Also, I just need to keep creating. Whether it be writing stories, drawing pictures, or making movies.
Thank you so much for your help! I really appreciate it.
Of which red dragon? Is it from a movie, a book, or..?
Okay, just googled it, I see there is a movie called this, don't know it.
I was wondering was the title supposed to be "fatality"?
By a quick look it looks quite symmetric, especially the head. That's one thing I like a lot. The details on the face are very well done, all those little strokes create an impression of a furry and fluffy fur. Which counterbalances the hard-looking horns, beak and claws. The expression is well captured, leaving no question how the character is feeling. And over all it shows you have focused a lot on Aurun's details. His wings look very good, I can imagine touching the leather when I see this. :'D
The tail there is a good add, giving more distance as it melts in the background. But it also makes the piece a bit unbalanced, however. Perhaps you already know what I mean but the upper left corner looks too empty to me. It wouldn't need anything that dramatic or detailed things like there already is. Just a tiny sparkles (though they maybe wouldn't fit in the theme ) or some variation on the background's colour might do. Anything little to fill the empty area.
Otherwise I like this piece a lot. Though I was a little surprised to see something this... from you. How should I say it, I think the words creepy or cruel just don't describe it so well.
Great work, anyway!
Yes, it was, I didn't notice the typo, thanks xD
Thank you so much for your detailed comment, I appreciate it a lot!
I understand exactly what you mean, but I really had no idea what to put there, and the scene and creatures themselves where already very detailed and the focus.
You know, I looove throwing sparkles and stars around, but they indeed wouldn't fit here xD I thought about adding some fire into the background, but I decided to keep the original piece with an empty background and just to indicate a low red light digitally to don't distrub the focus.
But hey, at least Aurun is a very chaotic character, so indirectly it fits very well to him if he destroys the balance of the pic
I'm so happy I was able to capture his merciless character... I often fail at this. And at the end he is the counter part of Alvrericjas.
Das Bild hat eine extreme Ausstrahlung, auch mit dem Text dazu. Ist doch mal was anderes, als deine meisten anderen Bilder. Zeichnerisch gefallen mir die Hörner und der Fuß (vor allem die Krallen) am meisten.
