    The Bright of Dragonkin, the Symbol of Man-Dragon

    The Bright of Dragonkin

    The Bright of Dragonkin is related to the diplomatic relationship of Man-Dragon. Only those worthy of their trust, the heroes would pass into some impossible challenges in order to win the respect of the Elder Dragons and to succeed to defeat one of their Dark Brethren, affected by the magic of the Dark Lord or known as the father of the Dark Prince. Therefore, many have tried but many have perished....except for one group of powerful warriors. Those who succeed will go into a sacred place, far beyond our imagination and our world, where their mortal bodies will be transformed into pure, magically celestial armor. This armor bounds the both powers of Water and Fire, as a symbol of the Ancient Age where the Mythical Water and Fire Dragons made a pact which their lands will be united as one, forming the Elder Council of the Celestial Dragons (This doesn't have any reference to the event of the Celestial Dragons from the game).

    PS: Thank you Xenia for inspiring me <3




    About the armor itself:


    The Bright of Dragonkin is an offensive Fire/Water Armor, which makes it design to be Dual-Sword Wielder rather to be the classic Sword-Shield style. Both swords have the same aspect as the one in the photo. ( Well, I could have done better work on the skull detail but nahhh ) Anyway, on the color I will not have that decision because I only like to finish my drawings on Black-White type and... that I love the way GREE choose the colors. As for the auras... The helmet will have some sort of....dense aura, slowly 'escaping' from its eyes. For the body, some aquatic effect and where the little cape is located a fire effect to add more attraction to it. For the swords it's obvious, one with aquatic aura and the other with some infernal aspect.

    Hallowed Drake Vestment


    The name of the armor I think should be a new dragon forged armor is the Hallowed Drake Vestment. It looks like a normal drake when looking at the top part but it is mostly spiked around the shoulders and arms.
    I would suggest having the two elements fire/magic. Giving that it says that it is a Hallow drake, that means it is undead. But the magic glow should be around the back connected to the helm, and the fire aspect should be around the legs and behind boots.

    My friend code is: WBR-FWN-CRZ

    Armor Detail Extras


    The color should be red and purple and maybe with blue in between. The weapons it holds can be the usuall sword-shield but the shield could be a dragon skull with the horns on it. The skull itself will be purple and the horns would be red. Now the sword will be mostly red with a center cut down the middle of it with a purple glow. (Hopefully I win because I would like to see how cool they make it for the game.)

    Work In Progress

    Posting a placeholder like last time. Will update this while drawing c:


    Armor: Divine Warden

    Artwork:
    Link: http://i.imgur.com/Dsp0iaK.png

    Description:
    I'm trying the archangel theme again, but this time I'm going the guardian/paladin route instead of the more mage-like design I had for the last contest. Oh, and I just had to make a spear with swirling decorations, because for some reason, I think it looks really fancy.

    The armor is supposed to give off this "guardian of the sky"/archangel feeling while still not being a clump of steel. It's mostly a personal preference, but I like light armor that uses both steel and cloth, which is the reason for there being no helmet in this concept art. (And I can't draw helmets either... ) There's a silver chestplate with golden decorations. The armor is supposed to be different on each side with the right side having the cross decoration and a larger shoulder plate while the left side has a fairly flat gauntlet and the golden wing bracelet. There are wing/feather decorations scattered across the armor. (on the gauntlets, the headpiece, the lance, the sleeves, etc.) The headpiece is a simple golden half-mask with feathers. The cross decoration at the waist is supposed to hold the dark red and gold mantle. I did not draw any object for the armor's right hand, since I thought that it would be too much to include a second weapon, and a shield would kind of defeat the purpose of the "light armor" theme. Actually, the lance should be a two-handed weapon, but I guess it doesn't really work in-game. Anyways, the swirling things around the lance are iron decorations. They're mostly there because I think they look fancy, but it'd probably hurt if you got impaled by that lance.

    Will post a short description of the armor's appearance here when I'm done/almost finished.

    This armor is worn by time travelers not only looking to defend the time stream from evil using the forces of spirits past and controlling nature for complete and utter destruction wherever the armorholder chooses.

    My first entry is the Aegis of the Forest's Soul. It's armor effect is green steam rising from the armor and shield and the blade is glittering. It is Mono Earth and has extremely high Defense.

    Here is a close up of the armor.

    Here is the second time I drew the armor. (I messed up on the helmet, it's disproportioned.) This one includes the legs, shield, and weapon.

    I didn't bother with the colors but I would like the skirt and gloves to be a black or brown and the rest of the armor to be a faded, dark green or creamy white. (I apologize for my lack of artistic abilities.)
