The Dragon by treijim The Dragon by treijim
15+ hours with a mouse on Paint Shop Pro

Woooo yet another scene from The Paladins. That is, Cole's story.

Well.... this consists of hours upon hours of rock shading, light manipulating, reference observing, and layering of colours and other versions of the pic, I came up with this. I know some parts look off. The dragon bothers me overall... but no references there aye ;p In the foreground stands Cole in his purple cape. I'm not sure why he's just standing there staring at one of the major villains. Well, actually, i do, but you do not!

I better finish this up before I write another story..... O_o

If dragons existed, at first glance I'd think it were a photograph.
You are..... SO talented.

coles story is called 'the paladins'. sadly i have scrapped this story entirely. you cant find it anywhere. i could send it to you, but it is incomplete (about 80% done) and very old~
