Dystrianon's Rage

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Dragons are the most primitive race in Existence.  Created by a race only a few millenia ago, they are also one of the youngest.  Their instincts sill reign supreme in the most dangerous ways... Dystrianon snarled as she crouched over the magma pool.  The fight for general-status had been hard on her.  Ash thickened air filled her lungs with pleasant warmth as the lava steam eased the pain of her injuries.  The heat would heal them in time.  Her green hide shuddered with pleasure as the injury on her chest began to close.  The worst of her hurts, she would be happy to have only a scar. Suddenly, rocks tumbled down the cliff nearby.  This was her private magma pool.  Roaring, she felt her fury rising even as she turned to face the intruder.  She drew herself up tall, a pride known only to a battle-hardened dragon making her shiver with anger at the thought of a trespasser in her territory.  Many creatures retreated in their pain, hiding to lick their wounds.  Not dragons.  They were far more dangerous... especially when injured. * Artist commentary: I tried a different style for this picture.  I didn't want it so smooth and - well, cartoony.  I wanted a dragon that could take on my other two at the same time and come out ahead.  *looks at picture* I think I did that.  Oh yeah...  the detail picture of the head since shrinking it destroyed it and *sweat blob*  new pose to come...
