Cizors seems to have accepted Jolly, even willing to be friendly, and protect him. But can you trust a Dragon?

As they say, Dragons make the best allies and worst enemies.

Seems like Jolly has both going for him! XD

Absolutely! Tonight, this is especially true!

Oh, there are some real treasures laying around this place, if you know where to look!

Yeah I was gonna say, looks like Cizors is looking after Dragonbeard! I wonder how long the friendship shall last?!

By the way great moon lighting effects on this page! The blues and whites came out really nice!!!

Thanks, I'm learning stuff about Photoshop all the time. I keep combing through tutorials trying to glean ways to do things better.

Cisors is, as far as Dragons go, more calm and thoughtful. That makes him all the more dangerous. He has his reasons for not wanting to see Jolly die, at least not tonight.

The design of the speech box of the dragon is fantastsic.
I'm not sure the moon works that way, to be honest. It's a photo, isn't it? at least photorealistic. that change in style for one object is a little distracting. otherwise: great job as usual.

Actually, the moon is a premade paintbrush I found over at

I found a whole galaxy worth of neat ones, Ive been using them in small doses for a few pages now.

For this page I wanted the moon to be the focus. I think I over did it, but meh, I thought it came out OK.

I was playing around with colors and wanted to give the moon a more violet shade. I was having a hard time getting a clean effect, after a few hours I had to settle down, and just give it my best shot.

I'm glad you like the text bubbles. I'm pretty happy with them.

The dragon speech bubbles are now very close to what I want, each dragon will have their own color, and shape. The interior is hazed according to its breath weapon. For Cizors, I wanted a heated look for fire. For Leerpain (who is coming in for a landing) his breath weapon is a poisonous gas I wanted a vaporous effect.

I...I think I spend way too much time fretting over details.

Thank you for the input! If something doesn't work, by all means let me know, I want to keep pushing for a better page every time.

Would I trust a dragon?
Well, I certainly wouldn't cross my arms and say "I don't trust your word, Dragon!" in defiance.

I must agree, I wouldn't say that to its face either.

Huh, I must be missing something, I can edit my replies (lord knows Ive used that feature plenty of times), and Ive gone through the management page and I don't see an option regarding comments other than mod on or off...

Shhhh about the dwarf nuggets! Its bad enough to be good!
