'In the gloom of a ruined lab, the flickering lights dim and dying, the dragon that Kova thought he knew so well turned its head slowly, and Kova was paralyzed with fear. The big yellow and orange dragon was missing the skin off of half of its face, tail, and the arms of its wings. But, there was no blood. In place of the skin was shining metal. There were thick rods of metal and pistons instead of bones, and rotating ball sockets instead of joints. Sabre's left eye was devoid of any pupil, simply a red orb, glowing and casting a eerie red light over Kova's face. Looking down, Sabre's rumbling voice said, "Now you know my secret." ' This is part of a story that I have been working on. Sabre is half mechanic, half flesh and blood. Kova is a mute weretiger. I could have added a backgound, and made it a little darker, but i didn't. Oh well. This is one of my illustrations for the story. Note: Sabre and Kova belong to me, Leah, or as I prefer, Irontiger.
