As cold as the frozen lands he inhabits, he takes little interest in the outside world. He did once stir himself to fight alongside the cadre of dragons known as the Seven, bringing about the breaking of the Old Empire but even before the dust had settled he was returning south, telling the black dragon Bloodbane he was more than welcome to crown himself Emperor if that was the game he wanted to play, so long as Frostbite's lands were left in peace. Thinking countless miles of ice, snow and permafrost a poor prize, the other dragon agreed but had he known the secrets of the wastes, the treasure-hungry beast may have reconsidered for they hold in their icy heart the ruins of a forgotten civilisation and incredible treasures of ancient knowledge and terrible power. Which Frostbite isn't going to tell anyone about. Yet while the dragon sits in his frozen city lair and counts his treasure the world moves on and it's only a matter of time before someone, somewhere takes an interest in what may be hidden in the frozen South... Aaand yeah, just setting up for yet another story I'll probably never get around to writing.

Now desperately itching to get my paints unpacked and set to on a canvas again.

Well, these ones anyway. Daemonslayers art ^^ And world-building blurb that probably makes little sense out of context: Here we have Serpentia, Wildfyre and Aelrhys; should be obvious who's who. They're three of the dire unicornsa all twisted up in their own special ways into dark reflections of the gentle creatures of light they once were. Before the demon goddess Shine captured and changed them into the accursed beings they are now, these immortal creatures (I'll draw the rest at some point) were the wardens of the enchanted forests and pristine wildernesses of the lands of Southern Caevalonia, now reduced to barren, blasted wastelands. However even darkness has different levels. The very worst of the dire unicorns are those with broken horns. These beings are utterly evil and beyond redemption. Those with their horns intact may be open to reason but are generally unable to prevent themselves spreading madness and destruction wherever they wander. Lightning stock courtesy of me! (I managed to photograph lightning! Couldn't believe my luck!).

Meet Blackjack. He's not a very nice person. However, he is enormous fun to draw (and write). In my spare time I like to write stories and draw up comics revolving around him and his two fellow Daemonslayers (imaginatively, I call this project 'The Daemonslayers'). You can expect to see more of him and his chums but if you're interested all is revealed on http://www.daemonslayers.net ;) Sun, 06 Oct 2013 11:07:46 -0400 Lunch http://shadowness.com/Drakhenliche/lunch-2 <a href="http://shadowness.com/Drakhenliche/lunch-2"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/379371/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />I get the feeling he's hungry...

Colour and all the rest slapped on in Photoshop.

Just for fun and practice messing about with different colour combinations. They're separate paintings, acrylics on canvas paper, but I thought they looked quite nice bunched together here.

Sort of. It's a while since I've used my acrylics, I really should wheel them out more often, I'd forgotten how enjoyable using them is. Sat, 16 Mar 2013 18:07:01 -0400
