It's a little known fact that the high mortality rate of princesses kidnapped by dragons is not due to burns, being eaten, or as collateral damage from rescues gone awry.  No, the majority of princesses die from acute cases of boredom, as dragons insist on playing chess until they win, and dragons, even Shrewd ones, are incredibly poor players ;)

A late bday gift for my buddy Buloght (http://pixeljoint.com/p/4993.htm), who introduced me to pixelling, and has always been a source of encouragement and inspiration :D  Happy belated, Bullo!

Shoutout to Captain Binky :)

This is a cute concept, and a fun piece. I love the texturing on the dragon, and the expression on the princess. Great work.

Sharprm: hehe, his expression's rather unsettling! ;)

I both love and hate you at the same time, Mash. Love for having such sense and bringing me great artwork like this to keep me inspired and working towards being better - hate for being so much better at it. You're an inspiration.

Brilliant! Though I thought if the dragon looked like it was having fun, boring her to death would be truly diabolical ... crappy edit: http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e199/sharprm/dragon.png

Beautiful. Really well done in all aspects. Nice and few colours.

looks nice, good colors

user
Emtch (Level 1 Gangster) @ 2/10/2009 11:51
Very cool. Would have been even better with just a little bit more detail on the bg.

user
iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 2/10/2009 06:07
Very nice in every aspect apart from outline being redundant in places.

nothing short than amazing! I love their expressions - she seems bored, while the green scaled firebreather looks like he's having a hard time xD

if I may nitpick though: I think there are slight readability issues where the wing meets the the torso. ( where you can see the back, where lower wing line intersects with the shape of the back)

still - Me love! <3

The dragon's eye is a bit hard to see but I love the rest of it.  Really well done!

A wonderful picture and a great story to go with it.

Great story telling, really looks like a snapshot from the animated movie  - expecting the motion.=)) Wonderfully done.=)

LOVE the simple sky/clouds in the background.  Well executed m'lady.

A beautiful drawing with excellent colors miss Potato!

user
DarkfalzX (Level 6 Hitman) @ 2/9/2009 08:31
This is SO Amiga-ish! Colors and rendering style remind me of Darkmere/Stormlord (both Mark K. Jones games). Some details of the dragon are less than perfectly readable, but otherwise - freaking brilliant!

user

Really good work! BG is a little bit simple but the whole composition is ok.

user
Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 2/9/2009 07:52
Good to see something from you again:) Very nice and it feels like a Mash/Buloght combo!

user
MashPotato (Level 7 Underboss) @ 2/9/2009 07:43
Thanks, everyone!

Gumol: yes, it's supposed to be up high :)

Buloght: :D

user

hahaha nice work Mash - who lose ? That milady look at very uninterested ... what will happen if she lose :)

user
gumol (Level 1 Depressed) @ 2/9/2009 06:36
magnificent! :D great expressions & idea :)
the only nitpick I can think of, is that the sky looks somewhat "empty"?
or maybe it's intentional? :] it gives a feeling of being on top of a mountain or smth like that :D dunno
