    Okay, done the walls, laying in the values on the entrapped dragon.

    I'll admit to not being entirely convinced by the dragon at this stage. If anyone has things they don't like about this, please chip in.

    I think the dragon looks great so far.

    A small update - the dragon is certainly in progress right now.

    Looks great T. A good example of why to use/get a tablet...I don't think I could ever get that kind of control with my mouse.

    I agree... I'd probably "punt" and grab a dragon from the Dundjiini forums.

    The fun would be in NOT smashing your brains in with a hammer in frustration since you can't draw well.

    The dragon looks good, but I have a hard time reading the map as it is... I guess it'll improve thou. Good job!

    Yep, there's a layer that sits above the dragon that has the hard reflected white on the floor, which will push the dragon into the background. Also, the dragon dearly needs to have it's levels adjusted to drop it more into the range of the ice.

    As for the illustrative stuff - this is a first attempt at seriously drawing something in gimp rather than with pencil and paper. It's... interesting. We'll see how it turns out.

    It's too bad the dragon wasn't turned 90 degrees. Then he could essentially be the bridge going from wingtip to wingtip.
    Bill Stickers is innocent! It isn't Bill's fault that he was hanging out in the wrong place.
