"Red Halla's royal scouts roved forth
Explored the Pain's edge east and north,
Sought scarlet dragons' Smoking Hills
Beyond bare Saltlands' bitter rills.
Four scouts fared forth, fast shoulder-friends,
Climed clouded cliffs where world ends,
And, ragged ranks reduced to three,
Were wared of wyvern trechery
By Melintelinas, lite queen
Of dragons languid, long, and lean.
One scout sped south, strove to return,
Lest Halla, herd, and homeland burn.
His fellows fallen, stranded here,
Have heard no word four hundred year.
Their daughters' sons bide, yearning yet
For news of Halla's offspring's get
That wryms lie vanquished, Hallows freed
By valiant victors' distant deed.
Come outlander with tidings and
His name shall be the Firebrand.
More swart than midnight swept of stars,
The moon athwart his brow bescars.
One heel whicked white by wyvern stings,
His flame the final firefall brings.
We dragons' denmates must remain
Till Firebrand fetch us home again..."

A line of unicorns appeared around the bend...

Ok don't laugh cause I'm trying a new style that is without line art (unless you count the horns) This has a ways to go yet but please tell me what you think

Oh, hey, you started another pic^^!That kinda has a cool look to it right now though, it looks like horses with laser horns and about to fight with 'em :).I'm also impressed with your courage to actually try a new style you aren't used to, since I could never move off of what I do><....well, I'll be watching this so hopefully I see more improvements soon enough^^...

that grey one refuses to look right and I hate not starting out with a good outline-I tried this as a challange but its been sitting unfinished for a long time cause I got fed up with it-I think it looks alright but I might work on it later-for now I'm just gunna call this darned thing finished
Gigandas (Jun 24, 2004)
I think the problem with the grey one is that the horn is pointed too far down and that the angle it should be at is kinda pointing right at us, the viewers.The other horns seem to look just fine to me.I think my favorite would be the brown one in the middle cause he looks like he's about to take someone out and you did a nice job capturing that XDD.Nice work :).

Pretty good, so far FM...but also on the grey one, maybe not have the top of the horn so high up? I like the red one the's got attitude. :)

Nice colors, and a good idea. I agree with Laurael about where the grey one's horn originates, I think if you shorten it, the angle you made will look right. I would like to see some shadows on the road to connect then to it, ( I know, I know you're not done..) I like this.

I love that Trilogy! ^_^ It was kind of sad though, at some parts.. well, actually it wasn't all that sad compared to some other books I've read... x_x Never mind.
Well, anyway, this picture is really good! ^_^
