.:Spell.Scale:. by Sayda .:Spell.Scale:. by Sayda

[NOTE] No, that is NOT glitter on her skin...thats SCALES >_> *cough* Thank you ;___; They just kinda...sparkle a bit -___-

I created a new character for a friend's D&D game I'll be joining up in soon ^__^ I got my hands on the book "Races of the Dragon" and got the itch to play a dragon race for his campaign, being a SpellScale dragon. Sooo...I sat my but down right away and got to drawing!

And Viola! This is what I came up with ^__^;; Her original concept was that she was decended from a Deep Dragon which would make skin and scales all black and deep purple in color. But...after =One-Vox gave me the idea, I went with making her an ALBINO Deep Dragon :D I liked the way she contrasts against her deep dark purple outfit ^__^ So it worked out better in the end.

But well, this character is a sorcerer/rouge type, so it shall be interesting to play :3 That and she is a it makes it even better ^_________^ *dances*
Characters Full Name:
Ardarastrixrasvimiejir Arcathvorastrixmaekrix *thats all in Draconic thankyou XD And DOES mean something :3*
...You can call her Arda for short :3~

lekosis Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2007  Hobbyist Artist
My friend and I spent about an hour going through the other coloring jobs and comparing them to yours, and while they ranged from "Meh, okay.." to "awesome!" none of them were as good as this one is. I guess if you want something done right you gotta do it yourself :P

No offense to everybody else who colored it. ^_^;

herrTevik Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2007
excellent rendition of fire.
Good shadowing and highlights.
I like the design as well, cool costume, in particular the hair and the tattoo.

Sorcerer-rogues are fun to play.
(I don't like DD3, though, as combat is sluggish and the class system has severe restrictions that are badly overcome by a throng of prestige-class books. Bah. I play Mutants and Masterminds instead. d20 with great modifications, and fast combat. Yum.)
Sox4eva Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2007
I colored it. ^^

SephirothxIshu Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2007

botchiball Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2006
this is amazing.. sorry i missed it when it was first made. beautiful magic flame and coloring, not to mention her hips (while definately not reality) have such a beautiful grace to them : ). the tattoo on her chest is nicely structured on top - yet playful on the bottom, think i would define it as "fun" : ), :+fav:.
