Abandon all delusions of control by Isvoc Abandon all delusions of control by Isvoc
"What is your purpose here, Arisen? If you sought to live you had naught but run and hide yourself away. But then, tell me, child of man....what does it mean to live in truth? To wage war against the passing days? To pray to the unseen for a few breaths more? To raise grand cities from stone, and spawn new life in turn? Mankind has done this, yes, and more. But is the tapestry you weave truly of your own design?
Their kind is easy to fathom, they go on living from simple fear of death. But not mankind. Some welcome the end with arms outstretched, while others come to face death incarnate, arms in hand. I ask again, what is your purpose here Arisen?
One path to your survival, lies in my defeat. Still my heart, and you stay the coming end. Another path before you is to offer up that which you hold most dear. Abandon all delusions of control.
For the price of a single life, I shall leave this land in peace. As my "vanquisher", the duchy would bow to you. Wealth and power are sweet anodyne for heartache. You'll not gainsay my terms are more than generous. If it matters aught, the man who rules this land now won that honor through just such a bargain.
The decision is yours, Arisen. Now... choose."





Grigori from Dragon's Dogma. Little tribute to one of my favourite dragons from entertainment.
Character belongs to Capcom.

His speech...it almost sounds like he's psyching YOU up for the battle with him; giving the HERO a pep-talk.

Grigori is probably the most badass dragon I've seen in video games. His presence is so grand, not just because of his size, but because of his personality and delivery. I think you captured that really well in this piece, especially with the lighting. I loved that even though people make of him as the embodiment of evil, he's deeper than that, and isn't actually evil. In fact, the things that he says during his battle kinda hurts my feelings. Speaking of battle, this is definitely, so far, the BEST dragon battle in video games for me. Like holy shit, all the sequences of his battle until you finally come face to face with him in the crater.

Anyway I digress. Great job with this piece. I think it could be nice to have some small elements on the upper left corner, maybe very faint shadows of harpies, but it's also great to have this breathing space. I've went through your gallery a bit and I'm really impressed. Keep up the wonderful work!

I have said this before, but the dragon was one of the few - if only - bosses to actually make me question my choice in picking a fight with him. Up to that point, you get the feeling that you know how any boss fight will play out.
But within five seconds of engaging this guy, your already running for your life.

Really great piece for one of the greatest bosses most people will never fight.

"Fight! Cling to Life!"
