Lord Christoff Dargeroth by breathing2004 Lord Christoff Dargeroth by breathing2004
the commission work did for Peter/
and the setting about the character is:
His full name is Lord Christoff Dargeroth, Christoff was his childhood name* that he decided to keep, Dargeroth is his Draconic name, and he got the Lord title from Lady Silnehan, ruler of Myth Drannor, when they took back the ancient home of the elves from the villain drow elves of the Underdark.
* That's how the story began: He was fighting with a more powerful enemy, when he was young. That enemy could not kill him, but he forced him into a humanoid form, into the shape of a 8-9 year old child, and took away his memories. The only thing that remained from his previous life was the bright orange eyes. He was found by an old Paladin, who adopted him and raised him as his child, in his order (he became a paladin). He was given the name Christoff after the founder of that order, and later he proved that he was worthy for such a name. He was the perfect novice; he was stronger, faster and tougher than his mates, with full respect of the order, and the sense of good. During that ten years he spent among them, he adopted a lot of their culture, and solidarity. (Thats why he made his lair, which is on a giant floating mountain like the Hallelujah Mountains in Avatar, but much bigger, near the "lesser being")

About his size, he is about 35 meter long from the tip of his nose to the end of his tail, and has a wingspan of 65-70 meters.
Apperance: He is a half-breed, his father is a Silver Dragon, and his mother is a Fang Dragon, (that's a long story) see the pictures. He inherited features from both his parents, generally the positive ones. He has big wings like his father (unlike his mother), and his scales are shiny, silver-like as his father's, as well as razor-sharp and pointy like his mother's.
He also has almost the same, brightly glowing orange eyes like his mother (that's important). Universally, his size, and body build is like his father's, while his details are like his mother's, especially the head, the talons, and the horns on his back over the spine, the head and the chin.

Additional stuff: Once he had to fight with a giant fire elemental, and was injured badly. The only way he could defeat it was that he grabbed it with his front paws, and took a bite out of its core, devouring its essence. His paws, nose, and the upper part of his chin were severely burnt, and he got them covered with macigally forged hard adamantium plates.

Naughty, you say? When his parents met, the first thing they did was trying to kill the other :D
The fight lasted for one and a half weeks, destroying a couple of villages and devastating dozens of square miles of landscape :D

You mentioned childen? Hmm, I haven't thought of it yet. You know, it would be hard to find a nice dragon lady, and having all that stress, sharing the territory, all the reasures collected ... noooo, dragons don't do that so easily :D

Awesome art, and would love to know more about his story :) Mainly curious how the paladins felt when they found out they'd been training a Dragon, I'll admit ;)

Well, at first they suspected that he had a dragon as one of his ancestors. Later they thought that he is a half-dragon. Later he found out his true origin, when he was on a 2 year long mission. It was quite funny, when he landed on the training yard of his order's headquarters. Before anyone could react, he morphed into his humaniod form, and said: "You should really see your faces!" :D
Well the paladins were initially shocked, then they felt proud, and then they began to worry about that enemy, whom he battled at the begining of his story.

Well, if you decide to visit us in Hungary, feel free to join! :)
But the sad thing is that nowadays we don't have that much time to play, everybody is busy with the university.

Shiny scales and moon - must be my favourite parts of this pic but that doesn't mean that other things don't glue my eyes to this piece of art :) I like the wwhole design of dragon, the angle of left wing, not to mention the rendition of dried up tree and rocks' highlightning.

Hello there, this is Peter! (that Peter, using my girlfriend's account)

I have to say that this is truly a masterpiece, far more better than I ever hoped so! It is just perfect, the colors ... that orange reflection on his scales makes them look so metallic and real, with that curly pattern ... and the eye! Wow! The magical energies are radiating from it! Truly amazing.
I was staring at the picture for at least half an hour, looking at all the details, over and over again.

And that dude in red? Who can it be? And ally, stopping by to greet his old friend? A stranger, seeking his aid on a dangerous quest, maybe the regent of the Arcane Order? Or an enemy coming to get a new dragonskin cloak, maybe one of the red wizzards of Thaymount? (oh, poor little creature :) )
Either way, I smell new adventure coming!

Amazing, wonderful, beautiful work ... thank you so very much! :)
