ravine - valerius mordine by nebezial ravine - valerius mordine by nebezial
for ages dragonlord have been seen as powers that often decided the outcome of great wars, their unique ability to issue controls to dragons and thus transforming what are essentialy beasts into a well oiled machine of war

southern lands have 8 known dragonlords, but it is a known fact that countries keep their dragonlord forces in secret as losing any of them presents a substantial weakening of army command chain so it wasnt unheard of greath espionague endevours being undertaken to find the identities of these people

one of these dragonlords in young valerius mordine, nephew to the duke of karand region he was sent to paladia for education as a dragonmaster, in return karand was declared as an official ally of paladia and placed under the holy protection of dhamanuls church

now at age 21 he is a full fledged dragonmaster rank who gained his ability of trueform

trueform allows him to use dragontears, crystallite shards that contain the core of a hign ranking dragon

he was about to realise his dream and become liutenant uder arianna balthasar, a woman for whom he harbors a secret love

but plants tend to get ruined when adventure comes calling

power is innate to him, power to communicate with dragons is a mental ability that wa never truly explored in the world of ravine, not that many havent tried enemy dragonmasters were often killed and examined in order for the secret of their art to be revealed but still no answer was found

there seem to be a deep link on a soul level that makes them capable of controlling dragons and in some cases taking their form

well not arguing against that. I was more referring to fantasy dragons that have to be the best at everything (or elves that have to be the best of everything for that matter)

It's really awesome that a professional artist of your caliber posts on DA. I think this is also a great way to advertise your new comic too. I don't read too many comics and I've never read Witchblade before but just seeing your concept art of Ravine, along with the backstory you write in the description, makes me want to read it a lot because you put so much story into your illustrations that I want to know more about these characters and this story.

You're awesome man!
