Day with a dragon by thaddman Day with a dragon by thaddman
I have not done Photomanipulation for a while and decided it was time for another one. So I did one using pictures of my pet lizard Draceo, Me, and wings from :iconreyed33: [link] .
I tried to make it look like they where scouting the area before they went for a flight. I don't know why, Maybe they where at war. Or being followed by un welcomed guest? You decide!

This part is just for fun! :D

Nuthain's Bio:
Age: 18 years
favorite color: red
Personality: Kind, quiet, justice seeker, merciful, protector, wise (for his age), Will fight to the death for the right cause.
Personal quote: Those who fail to understand one thing, Fail to understand everything.

When he was very young,Nuthain parents died, One by a dragon the other by the rubble of a castle. He lost them at the age of seven...But he also gained a brother. Lost and afraid he found himself in a dark forest alone...for the moment... Then while sitting a young dragon came upon him, With tears in it's own eyes from some disaster. In that instance they became linked. They where brothers who would protected each other till the death!

Draceo's Bio:
Age: 20 years
favorite color: Why do we have to choose one?
Personality: very VERY protective, Loyal to loyal people, Also a seeker of justice, Slow to anger, Patient with humans, Won't talk to anyone besides Nuthain (and other exceptions),
Personal quote:A eye for a eye makes the whole world blind.

This guys story is much like Nuthain's. In fact it is his mother that killed Nuthain's father. But his mother also died fromm the spear of Nuthain's father. When he found his mother dead he ran into the forest with rivers in his eyes. When he met Nuthain there he instantly vowed to protect this young human from the same fate as his mother.

Good day all!

Ooh! There's a dragon rider's contest? Where?

Anyway, this turned out well. I think I would lighten up your face a little because it blends into Draceo a bit much. Otherwise, I love it.

Ok I will try, But I usually don't have successes with lighting photos. and here is where I found it [link] .

Thanks for the link. I understand the problem with trying to lighten up photos.
