"No matter where, no matter what. Till the dusk plunders eternal or the sky lights afire, the two kin shall never forget the friendship they have,"
Zephyr and Riley, in Ancient Drakon forme. Both come from strange places, Zephyr from the summoning and sacrifice of another being, Riley, from the union of a Black and White Drakon.
Zephyr can conjure all sorts of magic, including forbidden Hex magic, which is highly dangerous in the wrong hands. However, she can control it well, and she uses Hex Gates in order to help Riley assume his Drakon form, since by normal means it is not reliable. In any other mortals hands, Hex Gates are fatal and will instantly cause a normal human or creature to become zombified.
Riley is the sister to Kiara Wrean, so it's easily obvious he has Drakon cardinal of his own. Drakon were bestowed an avatar form in order to protect themselves from the growing evils of the humanoid populace; nearly forcing them into extinction. This can usually appear as the form of an animal, or a human, or any other race under the eyes of Zanter. They commonly take the form of humanoids because their identity would be questioned if a mere animal spoke. Hardly any Drakon have Ancient forms. Kiara and Riley do aquire them because of their affinity to each Daeva of Order and Chaos, respectively.
This dragon was found in one of my old sketchbooks, when looking through old artwork. I've been trying to nail Hex Dragons Ancient form for some time, so this is it.
The 'Shields' on each forearm can be moved in such a way if Riley desires more mobility. It will then allow the grasp of large weapons to use in battle. Unlike the regular Hex Dragon, this time it has solid gold wings and conquered the fear of flying. It also lacks the resemblance to Galadius as the regular Hex Dragon does.
For some reason this dragon reminds me of an Elvish dragon, even though that wasn't my initial thought at the time. It's a personal favourite of mine, and I'll be drawing it more in the future.
