1ocus said: why do i have a feeling that like the 30% thing can’t be accurately…judged? Unless they have a way? Because some accents take up half a dragon and stuff. Or a whole dragon even but it’s transparent, y’know.

nah, its very easy to judge how much of…

@Sanrixian Within the last couple months we’ve stopped eyeballing coverage and started using photoshop’s histogram pixel counter so that there is little variation in the judgement calls we make going forward. Partial transparency can buy you some more real estate, as an accent that covers 80% of the surface of the dragon but is only 10% opaque can still be considered an accent. Accents that were approved previously have been grandfathered in, but future submissions must abide by the ruling. It is possible to do “accents” that cover 31-100% of the dragon, but they must use a skin blueprint rather than an accent blueprint.
you select the lair that the flats are on and open up histogram you can see how many pixels are available. then you open up your layer with your accent and see how many pixels are on it. Divide the two to find the percentage.

surburban samurai helped me out with that bit. and here’s my thread which we talkmabout this and why one of my accents got rejected for gore.
i’m pretty sure as soon as Kylia could figure out how to use her holo-phone she’d be taking tons of selfies on dragon back driving sargon and bolton crazy.
Bolton: what in the seven hells is she doing up here.sargon:……i dont want to talk about it. it better not go on the internet.

two feet standing on a principle Two hands longing for each others warmth Cold smoke seeping out of colder throats Darkness falling, leaves nowhere to go It’s spiraling down  Biting words like a wolf howl…
…And howl Be careful of the curse that falls on young lovers Starts so soft and sweet and turns them to hunters A man who’s pure of heart and says his prayers by night May still become a wolf when the autumn moon is bright If you could only see the beast you’ve made of me I held it in but now it seems you’ve set it running free The saints can’t help me now, the ropes have been unbound I hunt for you with bloody feet across the hallow’d ground 
daughter’s “still” and florence and the machine’s “howl.”sometimes you just got to paint your feelings out.

two feet standing on a principle
Two hands longing for each others warmth
Cold smoke seeping out of colder throats
Darkness falling, leaves nowhere to go

It’s spiraling down
Biting words like a wolf howl…

…And howl

Be careful of the curse that falls on young lovers
Starts so soft and sweet and turns them to hunters
A man who’s pure of heart and says his prayers by night
May still become a wolf when the autumn moon is bright

If you could only see the beast you’ve made of me
I held it in but now it seems you’ve set it running free
The saints can’t help me now, the ropes have been unbound
I hunt for you with bloody feet across the hallow’d ground

NSFW SORRY.

making some “paperdolls” to dress up with outfit designs. Cause i want to draw pretty clothes.

miza, zaephess, liya, colette. my modern age ray’llumian girls. still working on bases for ladies of the first age. trying to draw different body types.

critique appreciated? please?

my two enteries for the flamecaller’s festival skin/accent contest.

The first is called emberglow warden; protector (and resident egg warmer) of fledgling clans in northern region of the ashfall wastes.

the second is from a series i am planning called alchemical spellspinners (check it out in my accent shop, under coming soon…)
Inspired by my favorite alchemical symbol, immortal red king sulfur of the philosophers, this accent would be fantastic for fire mages. Might do a white queen to match someday. More previews to be linked to soon, looks best on iri/shim.

test your own on my accent previewer.  Has all of my other available accents on dropdown menu.

crit is always appreciated! <3

karifossalur:

For a very long time, I had been following undel's art on her site neondragonart. Like… back in 8th grade, long time. (I’m almost 25 now!) I even have some of her how-to-draw books. At some point life took over and I wasn’t as able to check in on her site, so I had forgotten about the ‘Flight Rising Project’. When I saw that her art was part of the core of Flight Rising (her style is very distinct to me!), I thought about how funny it was that everything seemed to come around full circle and that I would be able to enjoy her art once again.

No doubt that these pictures have already been shared a time or two in the tag, but I thought it would be interesting to share some of the early Deity designs - which, I might add, are easily found on neondragonart’s gallery section, so it’s not like these are super secret or anything! To me, it’s fascinating to see how things evolved over time. Of note:

  • One of the first designs of the Earthshaker had him as a serpent (also those root whiskers are lovely)
  • The Flamecaller used to be the Flamelord, with a far more skydancer-y, phoenix-y design
  • The Tidelord was once the Tidecaller (seems there was a bit of a name swap with Flamecaller!) and had more translucent features in his design
  • The Lightweaver’s initial design as a whole seemed to be used for the Arcanist instead (many wings, spindly body, dat crest)

^ basically the reason i joined FR. OMG NEONDRAGON I’VE LOVED HER SINCE I WAS 14. true life.

updated haircut and feral form for daychaser. markings are felxible, peacockish in nature and glow extremely bright.

While art errors are coming up, I’ll share my secret woe:

Why do male Snappers only have three legs?

Like, I’ve tried to suppose that their other hind leg is either perfectly behind their foreleg or perfectly behind the one visible hind leg, but that’d mean…

WHERE IS HIS OTHER FRONT LEG???????
