Happy third anniversary, War Dragons!
I wrote a short story with the new Spring Divine, the Corthanak, as core inspiration. I hope you enjoy reading it :blush:

Dally muttered obscenities to herself as she pulled on her new black fur lined boots. Druid Krieger had sent for her, saying he had a surprise in the training den for her. She had been trying to nap before the meeting on the fortification event, and was not happy that she’d have to go without the extra sleep. Still, the Druid was not one to disturb anyone without good reason. He had asked permission earlier that day to use some egg tokens, but would not say what for. She wasn’t up for an inquisition so she’d given him permission and waved him off. She hadn’t given the conversation a second thought, until now. She bounded down the stairs and onto the base, then jogged across to the Training Den.
Dally called to the Druid as she entered the training den and stopped dead in her tracks. The hulking beast standing on the platform before her was not like anything she ever could have imagined. Ever.
Her first impression was that it was a giant hippopotamus. With wings. And spikes down its back. It had more pink in its coloring than the dull grey most hippos seemed to have. It also had toes. The creature seemed to be smiling as well. Dally walked slowly around the dragon, at a safe distance, until Druid Krieger appeared from the shadows.
“Well, what do you think?” he asked excitedly.
Dally paused, looked at the creature then looked at the creature maker. “Well, first off he…she?..is absolutely adorable.”
“He is a he. Chunk.”
Dally nodded, then looked back at Chunk. “Where…I mean…how…what the heck did you do?”
Druid Krieger clapped his hands together excitedly. “Well, I’ve always wondered if we could get anything different if we bred Etzel and Drude, other than the three you already have: Bolt, Sahron and Habrok. I’d tried several times, unsuccessfully, but finally it actually worked! And, well, you know the rest.”
“What does he do? Spells and such?”
“Well, he’s a warrior class, with Super Rejuvenate and Cloak. His big spell though I call Belly Flop. It’s kind of like self destruct, only he lands with a thud and destroys everything around him. He’s done after that however.”
“Ah…huh….”
“Oh! And also, he’s an herbivore. Most of the time anyway.”
“Most of the time?”
“Well, yes. He eats wood, unless he’s standing on something high up, like a perch. Then he will eat meat, because he’s afraid of heights when he’s not flying. I guess it makes him feel stronger or something.”
Dally shook her head in disbelief and sighed. “Well, he is adorable anyway.” She slowly approached Chunk, who was very eager for her to pay attention to him. “Will he tolerate being flown?” she asked.
“Yes, I’ve flown him personally. A bit of a bumpy ride but nothing you can’t handle.”
“Ok good. This is just…well…I’ve got to see this guy in action for myself!”

My newly hatched dragon

I just wanna let you know, as an artist, it’s frustrating to see people like this, copying and stealing someone else’s work. But, I don’t think I consider it either of those if you use references for your work. I use references, always, it’s often quite hard for me to come up with something 100% original.
It was obvious with the printer lines that this guy printed it, but I just wanna add on that it’s not BAD to look at someone’s art and draw it yourself, as long as you give credit to that original artist. :slight_smile:


#255

Still trying to figure out how to get my entry poem onto forum. Can you help


#256

Copy and paste it…? Put it in a public Google document and post the link to it here? :t_rex:


#257

Here is mÿ entry::

Playing war dragons fun, fun, fun,
Levelling up is never done.
Warring, pillaging, breeding,
Eventing, building, feeding.
Chests, chests, I need you so,
Hitting monuments, to and fro.
Open them, do so now.
Ten at a shot, you know how.
Wanting sigils big and small
The season dragons want them all.
One of the winter with his stones
Electric energy in his bones.
He came upon a winter’s moon
His magnificence made me swoon
With a snow white mane
And lightening bite insane.
One head was not enough
So he has two, to make him tough.
See him and you will die
Equestor, Sorcerer of the sky!


#258

You could also create a pdf and upload it.


#259

Nice, I love poems! I wish I got Equestor instead of Leos :dizzy_face: :t_rex:


#260

So the above entry is wrong?


#261

No, it works. I was typing that suggestion while you were posting yours lol.


#262

Dragon Lords, what a title!
Join a kingdom, but don’t be idle.
Hatch some eggs, maybe one or two
Frigg and Draco, to name a few.
Clear the islands to the shores,
Build some guns to protect what’s yours!
Collect the treasures, here and there
Find the chests, if you dare!
War and war, fight, fight, fight,
To be the winner is the right.
To other islands we must fly,
Upping our levels or we die.
In the chests we do find
War dragon gold – sigils, held high.
These are special, I will not lie.
For when you’ve gathered just enough
And yes the road is pretty rough
You are guaranteed to buy
A season dragon to fly high.
My bestest dragon was one of these
As solid as the cedar trees.
Eyes of blue and feathered crown,
A magestic dragon to take you down.
Golden amulets she does wear,
Attacking her enemies with such flare!
Her dodo guardian, such a laugh
Bumbles along, cutting targets in half.
Earth shattering hits, what she’s known for
Leaving bits 'n pieces at your door.
Far and wide is her fame,
Kinnarus is her name!!

yeah i understand if its being used as reference material and you’re doing your own work, but many of these posts are just blatant copies lol

if they got acryllic paint out and made a masterpiece using this as reference i’d be clapping and cheering and not calling them out lol for instance but yeah i get what you mean


#264

#265

Not sure which piece y’all are talking about… but I know mine is Prisma colored pencils on black art again Strathmore recycled paper 9x12


#266

Also my visual reference was off a phone… really hard to to turn pics from a 2x6 to a hand drawn 9x12 lmao


#267

Definitely not yours lol. Scroll up to the beginning and you’ll see a bunch of people posting graphic art off google images that I was calling out. What you drew was pretty nice!


#268
