Descendants of Glory by JayAxer Descendants of Glory by JayAxer
There was a kingdom deep within a great valley with an army composed of grand regiments of dragoons. The King ruled with grace and compassion yet all knew should his hand be forced these dragon knights would descend upon their foes wielding the destructive power of the Gods. However, this was long ago. Many years have passed and much destruction and turmoil have restructured the lands. The King and his kingdom have long since fallen and what were once the great dragoons now are lonely warriors with dragon hybrids holding onto tradition which became ritual and bled into superstition.

sketched and painted in Photoshop CS5.
Thanks for taking a look!

im gonna sound like a complete idiot
but this is a style i always enjoyed and always looked forward to achieving (individually, not copy of course)
did you ever make any tutorial?
like some details or how you manage color, or even the technique itself

awesome painting and awesome gallery

I like how you always disappear for a while and then your style changes in drastic and impressive ways. I bought your "finale" portfolio yeeeeeeears ago and, putting that stuff side by side with this is insane. It's all great stuff, but the contrast is striking!

Great work man, you should make a graphic novel out of it. If you did Id buy it right off the shelf, even stuff with dragon Leigh that would be cool too. :) :thumbsup:

Man, you've really improved with this digital painting malarkey. I seem to remember a while back you said you found it hard to not make everything clean and smooth. It seems you've learned to let yourself loosen up more and it's really paying off. Keep up the great work! I'm loving the face in the rocks back there.
