After negotiating with the Elder Dragon Katathrax, Reptile took on a dangerous journey to get even more dragons for support. Not far away from the Valley of Dragons he found a young water dragon named Safur who was immediately willing to accompany Reptile on his quest.
Safur, though being very young and less experienced, excels in matters of strength, determination and loyalty to his new friend.
Go, mighty warriors - may the Gods be with you on your journey!
~Dedicated to my friend Safur!

That is the second time that I've painted clouds by using only COPICS! It's something I have to get used to... but I think it looks good if the scene takes place ABOVE the clouds. If we can see a scene BELOW the clouds (or on the ground), I would still use pencils. Pencils have a more... well, a lighter feel to it. COPICS can be very strong and heavy... but I guess it works!
