Rising through the darkness comes the Black Mage. He who spreads chaos and destruction with an icy gaze and an iron fist.
Slowly the darkness spreads, encompassing the countryside in an evil darkness where nothing can survive.
Not content with ruling over the people of the small county of Osgarth, the Mage spreads his grasp into the north. Pulling dragons under his power and corrupting their usual neutral state of being.
On wings of darkness the Mage and his beasts set forth to find uncorrupted land where his power will thrive.
Hearing of the Black Blight covering the lands to their south, the people of Dartfall struggle to fight off the evil that works it's way into their homes and families.
Naturally resistant, the dragons fight his grasp in their clouded minds.
They are met with failure.
The Mage demands a tribute be sacrificed to his beasts as a reminder of who has control of the land lest the farmers forget.
He trains and twists the magnificent dragons to his will, forcing them to feast upon the tributes against their will.
Their once great dignity is broken, as are their minds.
He has trained the dragon.
I liked both entries, I like the landscaping and the agrressive-looking dragon, not so sure about those claws though.
But I have to make a choice and in the end it was your opponent that has the more original entry (In my opinion), my vote goes to Invisible Mime.
I like the way you made a brick built head for the dragon, instead of the Ninjago dragon head, even if it's the same scale. I would've loved to see more posing of the dragon. The dragon rider is nicely put together too, let's not underestimate the skills on making a suitable minifig!Good luck with your judges!
Very good, although I did not pay much attention to the landscape (which should be made a bit better to complement the dragon). I think the head could use more complexity, but what s really interesting is the posting time and the wings. I too made gap-full wings in MOColympics, last year. You are lucky to have the category actually require a dragon, it would be the perfect one for me...
Wow. That is impressive. Excellent greenery, and the water looks great too. The stones in the path are perfectly placed, well done. The dragon's wings could be a bit better, but the rest looks phenomenal. Great photography as well. Good luck!
