S-Dom-Adult-2 by Quisum S-Dom-Adult-2 by Quisum
For #Windsonde!

2. You and a clan-mate have been selected to participate in a raid on Grandesque. Depict yourselves giving these lazy, narcissistic bastards a scare! Then take as much of their stuff as you can and make a run for it!

Bored of watching an empty landscape during their border patrol, Blight and Dom decided to pass the time by playing I-spy. Blight, however, soon tired of this game when he noticed that Dom would always alternate between spying a cloud and a rock.
Dom surveyed the landscape. "I spy, with my little eye, something..."
"It's that cloud!" Blight interrupted.
"Hey! how'd you know?" Dom asked, frowning.
"I just know," Blight sighed. "C'mon! Screw this patrol. Let's go pick a fight with some Grandesque sissies!"
"Yahoo!" Dom excitedly launched himself into the air towards Grandesque territory.
...
The two Skrekrill had flown over the Grandesque's land for 20 minutes or so, but had not seen a single gryphon with which to pick a fight.
Dom clacked his beak. "Where ARE they?"
"I dunno. Wait, look over there," Blight answered, pointing his paw at numerous caves opening on the side of a cliff. The two gryphons dropped down to the cliff and landed in a small opening.
"I hear something," mumbled Dom, pricking his ears. He walked into the cave, following the sound. "It sounds like some gryphon talking! C'mon!"
The Skrekrill took a few twisting pathways towards the murmuring gryphon's voice. The voice sounded more droning as the two got closer.

Finally, the Skrekrill came to a well lit room. They were near the ceiling, standing on a large ledge overlooking the room. Gryphons filled the room, most of which were watching the speaker. Dom and Blight crept to the edge of the ledge to catch a glimpse of the droning speaker.
Realization hit the two Skrekrill at the same time. The droner was the Grandesque Queen!
"BAH HAHAHAAHAHHHAHAHA!!!!! WHOOOHAHAHAHA!!"
The Srekrill couldn't stop laughing, even as the Grandesque guards chased them through the winding underground passages.


God I had a lot of fun with this one. For whatever reason the idea of dom playing I-spy amuses me. He'd probably look at the mystery object for a good obvious 10 sec to gauge its color and then immediately say "I spy..."

***CALLING ALL SKREKRILL!***
I'd like to make a drawing of some Skrekrill together looking all gangsta-badass. If you'd like your gryph to be included, say something like "include my skrekrill" in a comment on this page, and I'll add you.

:excited: Eeee~!! Thank you so, so much for including my Reva in this!! :love:
First chance I get, I will return the favor and feature Dom in something! :tighthug:

You make a brilliant point about the Grandesque gathering- it does leave the whole Aery vulnerable to attack.....


As for Skrekrills; I'd volunteer Iorangi, but he's not in Windsonde yet :C
(And you did already cameo one of my characters. I don't wanna seem rude by asking for another...)

I don't mind drawing people's characters more than once... I'd totally feature Iorangi sometime when his ref is up :D

Would you mind if I include Berra in my gangster-Skrekrill picture?

rydicanubis Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2011
Haha, sure you can include her! The only thing is, she is not really ganster-badass as a Skrekrill, she pretty much does not do violence. She might fit in as ganster-hoochie-mama though... xD

I love Dom so much. His challenges are among my very favorites.

Skooma and Skerry's super-offended "OKAY WHO'S LAUGHING?!" faces are the best. :XD:

Hahaha, they are sort of dorks! :XD: Beautiful drawing! I love your style so much. So illustrative and story book, but with all kinds of fantastic detail. MMMM! Skooma is my favorite in this piece!

I would love you to include my Skrekrill in your picture if you feel like he works! Tanq is not all that gangsta, though maybe he would like to think he is. ;)

I love how they didn't even get around to stealing anything they were laughing so hard. That's got to be way more insulting to Grandesque than your standard raid.

And I'd be super-delighted if you included Valcaur in the gangsta-badass drawing.

Have I told you that your style is DELICIOUS?

Also, my itty baby Henley is a Skekrill and can definitely be used. I know I haven't done any challenges with him yet, though, so there's not tooooo much to go on... but he's very snooty for a youngun.

That is an awesome idea! Dom is just so adorable! Blight is just homicidal, he's prolly gonna die young... :'D

I'm amazed everytime with your art-style and coloring, looks so simple, but still richly detailed.

Also, Blight totally wants to be a gangsta!

Ah too awesome for words! I love the style - makes me think almost like a children's fantasy book, the way the piece is laid out. All the little details in each gryphon is just a marvel to examine. I can't help but chortle too at the caption!

This is a hilariously awesome picture, and I love the whole concept. The Grandesque look suitably indignant and shocked at Dom and Blight's hooting and guffawing!

Also, you can totes include Rakhamat in your Skrekrill Gangsta-Badass run if you'd like!
