Day of Judgement by TheGuardianDragon Day of Judgement by TheGuardianDragon
EDIT: Ok, so, because people keep mentioning this "Malefor" character, let me just make this clear- not every dragon who's purple and huge is Malefor (or Barney, for that matter. Barney's also purple).

I apologize for being a bit nippy about this- I've just seen comments like that on not only my work but other people's, and I'd like to remind everyone that unless the artist specifically says that it is FANART or referenced, it is NOT a replication of an already existing character. I can appreciate that sometimes a painting can remind a person of a character they've seen before -which is totally fine-, but it can be disrespectful to the artist who worked so hard to paint it if they're told every 5 minutes that, "You just painted ____" or "That's totally ____" (again, unless it's fanart- then go right ahead!). I'm not saying any of you guys have meant it as an accusatory statement, but...I personally just would rather the artwork itself be commented on, since it by itself in an individual piece of work and NOT meant to relate to any other existing dragon design. =/

Anywho, onto the REAL description....

"And so the Day shall come,
On Great Wings Judgement Shall Fly
Down upon the Sinned and the Wicked,
Destroying all in Its Path."

Um, yeah, I really wouldn't want to be one of those villagers...just sayin'.

YAY done! And it's a dragon! And it's freaking 3:22 in the morning. @_@

Anyone remember this old scrap from FEBRUARY 2009?
Yeah, I finally finished it. =D

This is the dragon in my novel, whose name shall not be mentioned as I know there are little thieves running about on dA -_- (also, apologies for the ugly watermark, but this IS a copyrighted piece, and there was another recent incident of theft, so...can't be too prepared!) Some of the detail written about also was not added, as, again, I don't want the true design taken.

Oh, and wonderful news on my part- I HAVE A TABLET. YAY. Although I'm not entirely sure how to use it. Currently using my mouse as a crutch because I haven't yet fully switched over and learned what is what....>_> I'm a bit of a fail as an artist...

Done on Photoshop CS3 with Vistablet- and my handy-dandy mouse.
Hours: 42

Uug, I know how you feel when people say that something you've drawn looks like someone from a book/movie ect. I have a dragon character and people sometimes think he's to do with the Spyro fandon :stare:
Nice drawing though, I feel sorry for the poor dudes in that village D:

Oh man, the scale on that village compared to the dragon makes it really scary. Also, once I get over how fantastic the dragon looks I realize I love the lighting on the little huts in the village too, so pretty!

TheGuardianDragon Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2011
XD I wish I knew. When I use my mouse, I believe I spend more time erasing and undoing lines than actually drawing them!

I know of Malefor, and I'm a fan of the Spyro series, but it annoys me how EVERYone on Deviant Art seems to be obsessed with it. I didn't think anything of Malefor when I looked at this.

Actually, my first thought was: 'Nidoking' :P

This is awesome, by the way
TheGuardianDragon Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2011
Hahaha, wow, Nidoking. XD I'll give that one a thumbs-up! And thank you. ^_^

And gratz on getting your tablet!! Took me a long time to swap over to mine as well... I unplugged my mouse and hid it in my closet except for gaming so I'd HAVE to use my tablet. 'xD Worked.
