Firetide by Adalfyre Firetide by Adalfyre
***EDIT***

Every comment starting with: "He looks / reminds / whatever of Deathwing" will be hidden.
I'm done with pointless discussions.


Firetide, the lord and protector of the Fire Sphere. The oldest of the six guardians, most proud of them.

Hope You'll like him :)

I get comments all the time saying stuff like "reminds me of *insert dumb fan character here*", its really annoying. Especially when there really is no resemblance other than the fact they are dragons. Its unfortunate you've even had to write this here on the description, The amount of artists who hate having their art compared to other shit really should have gone viral by now, but still people seem to love to leave blank single comments which compliment the picture in no way possible. What exactly do people want to hear back from a comment like that anyway? "oh yea thanks, I just copied it from that design because I felt like being unoriginal...", seriously? Anyway...Its unfortunate that Firetide has a colour combination people associate to Deathwing (I don't play games, I had to look that name up to see what you were talking about), but really he has very little resemblance, for a start he has much better anatomy. He does't look so ugly and heavy as that WoW game's dragon XD I really curse most games for their poor attention to dragon anatomy as they literally stick a pair of thin/small wings onto a hulky lizard and somehow justify it to fly. This guy however is handsome and regal, I like your painting style its very smooth and makes a simple standalone VERY attractive. Just ignore the dumb guys telling you similarities, life's too short to care, and generally people who say things like that are not artists (or good ones), or are children who just state what instantly comes into their head, which in this case is..."ooo, black+orange dragon = deathwing!"

Oh really? May I ask why? Are you bugged too much by these comments or you just want to update the design? ^^

Can I say that he doesn't look like him? I love dragons though and I really do love this one. I've had him in my fav for a long time. Just never said anything till now. Really love how you can tell what he breaths, very beautiful.

I love the effect of the fire through his scales!
It's simply majestic, and provides a good point of interest.

He's so majestic! ;-;
Do you mind if I ever find the time, to draw him with my OC BlaaZ'D?
He's a fire dragon as well.
