practice - truce by zlack3r practice - truce by zlack3r
another lazy painting. i messed up in some aspects but i got the point i wanted across, ie big sinister dragon and a small pony in some far-away barren landscape. im definately going to try and paint this up to a higher standard sometime.

envisioned as something from the creation of equestria.

I would love a 48" wall print of this. Any way I could convince you to take it to Kinko's and get it scanned in ultra-hires?

But surely there must be a higher resolution somewhere. This must be on my wall.

Besides the inherent epicness of this picture I also love it because it fits with my headcanon of Equestria being post apocalyptic earth, Plant of the Apes-style. Inspired by some fanfiction I read that explained it pretty well. Surely the ruins of that great past civilization still sprawl across the landscapes of places far from the realm of ponies.

First: Grats on the EQD feature! :D

Second: When I saw that Dragon, I immediately thought of Deathwing. No clue why... I guess it's cause of the pose and the fact that the building he's standing on looks similar to the one he stands on in the actual picture of him.

Otherwise, great painting :).

Holy buck this is awesome.

Reminds me of a scene in the excellent "Sandman: The Dream Hunters", where the fox meets Morpheus.

I like how the dragon is drawn into itself like that. Like it's gonna spring if that guy gets too close.

This is very nice. What makes it stand out is the monolithic sense of scale.
It's ambient and mysterious with the muted tones. The pinprick of blue from Luna and the stark blackness of the dragon really bump up the feel and keep the eye interested.

I hardly see what needs to be "painted up" or "less lazy"... it is really a perfect piece on it's own. I wouldn't change a thing.
