Wow, I love it! The shape of the dragon’s head is perfect and I love the tension in the Rynn vs. Werokh piece.

Here’s a dragon drawing Ramoth14 gave to me years ago, when we were playing Drakan:

Neoslive:
I've just noticed your work @ http://www.arokhslair.net/forum/viewtop ... 726#p31403 and have to say I admire it a lot. How do you make this watercolour/paint effect on picture? The reason I'm asking is I wanted to use something like that to change ordinary photo into similar kind of painting.

This is not new content by any means, but it still might be of use to someone:

I took the OOTF promotional poster, and edited it down to a wallpaper form.
Whitespace trimmed out, rescaled, and also mildly color corrected. (is it just me, or does the original look kinda faded, or washed out?)

Here, have a JPEG, whittled down to fit within the attachment size limit.
(In PNG format it's over 2.6MB, even with max compression, but the quality is noticeably better than in this JPEG)

It's definitely an improvement but it looks a little dark; the original does look washed out but that was due to the scanner used.

Here's another edited version viewtopic.php?f=20&t=4010

Eh, it's a matter of preference. A similar point was raised in the HD texture pack thread.
I find that version you linked a bit too bright and colorful.
You say its dark, but why should it be particularly bright? The scene's composition doesn't seem to suggest that; seems like it's supposed to be nighttime?

Do keep in mind that I'm a mechanic, not a graphic artist (but I do know my graphical editing tools - even if only just enough to be dangerous :)).
Also I've never seen the original, so I don't have anything to compare it to.

Good point. I did see that promo image on ebay a long time back. Wish I could have bought it but it was in the US and the seller wouldn't ship abroad.
