commence flashback with oodles of dragons. And of course since I decided to make all of the dragons red, they're a little bit tricky to tell apart. Things to pay attention to are the horns, yellow plates, and occasionally patterns on the scales (although not all dragons have them). I'll also be identifying folks in the comments if you get confused, but hopefully the differences will be clear enough.
The litte guy is a young dragon, which is why his wings are pretty small compared to his body. Wings take a while to grow in, so the young ones can't fly. He has the same placement of plates on his legs as Drake, but Drake only has one pair of horns and no patterning on his scales, so this is not Drake. He was in Drake's earlier little flashback/story on page 209, and is Drake's younger brother.
Next update might be a tad bit late because I'm in Greece (WOOT!).
re Kavi: hurah, first comment! I'm glad that people ended up liking that panel, even though is wasn't quite what I had intended.
re amiko_16: hmm, I'm not realy sure why that is, part of it might be that he's slouching, so he looks a lot younger.
re Sebiale: well, dragons are a bit like nobility, looks like they can rock the sitting-in-an-armchair scene
re LToEV: thanks ^_^
re comic king: actually this goes even farther back. The prologue is after the Shadows War, which is essentially the end of our modern times. This flashback is going to Feudal times.
re Mythee: he's not looking for any vengeance in particular, dragons in general just tend to be vindictive. This is part of the reason why Drake tends to be a bit petty and do things like shut Teddy in he closet.
re Vine_Gar: thanks ^_^
re Sidheprincezzz: the hotel backgrounds are kinda a pain to draw though. The plain rock wall was a refreshing change.
re LuluMoon: thanks ^_^
re Zheyna: I'm glad that carried through, because I figured that Drake would probably lean more towards an angry reaction when dealing with grief.
re TheDemonDragonCat: hurah ^_^
re Onasaki: this is gonna be one long flashback, so you'll get to meet them.
re Zhai, replying to the previous page: thanks, the delivery was one of the things I tried to use to lessen the cliche factor.
re mage_116: oop, and it's another clifhanger XP sorry
I love it! I was starting to miss the dragon story. And not to mention that the art is still getting better. I really like the texture on the Dragons' skin. Lighting is also really good. The one thing that doesn't sell for me is the motion... The muscles don't seem to flex enough, and the hair should probably blow more. Oh well, now that the concert is over I'm in the home stretch for the end of school, and then I'll be a senior.... *fear*. I hope things are goin well over there. Oh, and I don't know if anyone else has mentioned this to you, but we've started to have picnics behind the comic. We all bring food and it's a really good stress releaver. I just hope you've been ok, and that you're still sane.
