Hunter and the Dragon (1/2) Comm for TheModerator by streetdragon95 Hunter and the Dragon (1/2) Comm for TheModerator by streetdragon95
The human glanced at his accompaniment accross the hastily assembled bonfire, from within which the flames danced and spat over logs and dry grass, and cast flickering orange shadows accross the pair. Beyond the reach of the fire's illumination, the landscape carried on, climbing sharply in front of the pair, but dropping off even moreso just behind them, and revealing a jagged horizon of mountains, lakes, and in the distance, too far to see at night as anything other than a slightly larger black area, the waters of the sea. Above that, the stars gazed back down at them, unbothered by the feasting of the individuals basking in their pin-prick glow, starting to emerge from the sunset like a butterfly it's cocoon. At this altitude the ridge should have been windy, but for once, the air was still, the wind was quiet, and all felt right with the world. 

The human raised an eyebrow at the dragon, posing the question without making a sound. The dragon nodded and flashed his teeth, happy with the meal he'd been given. It wasn't much, but it was tasty, hot, and was just what was needed after a day of intense workout. Paraphernalia of the day's efforts were neatly strewn around them; from rocks Latios had liked the look of and insisted carrying (for seemingly no reason), to the ever present bow and arrows the human had cast off himself before sitting down in enjoyment of the lack of danger. 

The human smirked slightly at the sight of the eon struggling with the stick propped between his paws. He wasn't sure if the dragon was meant to eat marshmallows, but Latios seemed just as amused to watch his sugary treat slowly turn into a drippy goey mess as he would have done eating it, so he let it slide for the while.

Latios sunk lower as he continued to watch his food cook. Everything was just how it should be. No noise. No schemes. No planning. No orders. Just them and the infinste boundaries of nature. Just as if it were intended to be.

You're happy how it turned out? YOU'RE HAPPY. If you're happy, then I'm exploding with ecstasy!  (the emotion, not the drug). This is everything I wanted and then more. I set you something I considered challenging and - though it took a bit of time -  it took no longer than I expected but the results were... well... anyone who's seeing this can see for themselves what the results are. I don't think I have the right words to express what I think, but I think adjectives such as 'Marvelous' and 'Astounding' are about halfway to the greatness that is this image. The additional image and the fact you agreed to a panorama is just the icing on the delicious cake which the final product is.

Daymn son... Dat Sky. Dat Dragon. Dose Mountains. :icondatassplz:
The atmosphere is just wonderful, the viewer can definitely get a sense of how paradoxically intimate such a large environment can actually be. The soft shading works really well coupled with the layered effect of the grass, and the warm colors of the fire blend with beautiful contrast to the cooler colors of the surroundings. Both the dragon and the human are rendered in that uniquely SD95 posing and style (that is to say, adorable to borderline stupid levels), and it all combines brilliantly into something which, despite being totally fanciful, the viewer can totally relate to.

One of your problems, Wern, is that everyone expects you to be better than they expect. So they expect the amazing, and then they get something even better than that back, it really does leave them with no comment to say other than how grateful they are you took on the challenge.

I can't congratulate or thank you enough, dude. Exquisite work.
