Sekkai: Taste the rainbow by balustriad Sekkai: Taste the rainbow by balustriad
==>[link]<==

Unless you're new to my updates, you'll know that 98% of the art I upload is Sekkai-based. Sekkai is a fabulous rp forum I run with my homeslices: Tox, Moon, Kess and Kurar, wherein we all run about and have copious amounts of fun creating characters, waging war and getting trollied. The basic dealio is that the Sekkain people are warring against the invading Taint army and the choice method of battle is on a motherfucking dragon.

Said dragons provide infinite creativity for me, as they are enormous, sentient beings with magical powers and can look pretty much however you want. We allow for a fair bit of customisation on Sekkai when it comes to designing your dragon, and thus we've got a boatload of the most glorious designs you've ever seen trotting around the site. Because I'm a rather artsy type, drawing fan art of these dragons is my way of saying "Love the design!", and the art dump above is the result of my ravenous fan arting. Above you've got Tainted and Sekkain breeds, a 'hybrid' (Moxy), the largest dragon on-site (Erebus approx. 600ft long) and one of the smallest (Raesnic 14ft), common and rare breeds, and adoptable designs too~

This is merely a dollop, however, of the horde of beauteous dragons we have at Sekkai. Over a hundred I'd wager, and I'm proud to say most of them have at least one piece of art to hang on their profiles. Our members are a wonderfully talented lot and I'd hardly know what to do without them :heart:

But anyway, DRAGONS. HOT DAMN. If you're a fan of rp and think the dragon-riding genre would tickle your fancy, feel free to drop by and say hello in the cbox! I promise we'll give you a warm welcome and help you understand Sekkai's rather hefty info section x3

~~~~~

I should probably mention that most of these designs have owners and should not be replicated or stolen under any circumstances! The only dragon that do not have an owner isFire Zar. If you'd like to own him, you must join the site and rp him.

All other dragons are not to be used in any way or form.

I found Sekkai through your gallery, and it looks really interesting.
My problem, though, is that I'm not really into RPing (I'm no good at it). Even so, the dragon 'standards' and their design potential always gives me a rush of artsy inspiration!
So, what I want to ask you is; would be ok with you & the other mods if I were to join, not to RP, but just to design dragons??

I'm delighted you're so inspired by our dragons! Sekkai's primary focus is rp with designing a secondary aspect, so joining might not be up your alley, but you could most certainly chill in the cbox, design to your heart's content and post your dragons on DA :3

Every. Single. One. Of. Them. Is. Amazing.

Seriously, I don't remember there being that many celestials on Sekkai (for the short period that I was a member :( ) Or are they from the old site before it was remade? If it weren't for the fact that I don't have time, these lovelies may have convinced me to go back and give it another try :(

I've got particular love for Ivy's wing. I've been trying for a while now to work out how to draw insanely long wings, mind if I use them as a bit of reference to play around with? I won't steal the design or anything, just use the framework maybe, and only for the wings, I'm not an art thief and never intend to be, so I'll give credit where it is due if you like ;)

But I just gotta say, for Erebus: HOLY CHEESEPUFFS THAT'S A CELESTIAL BY HIS FEET?!?!?!?!?!? @_@

Yeah you're right, out of those three only Amunet is present on new Sekkai.

And thanks ;u; I'm not so confident with wings myself, so I'm glad I've made a passable attempt. You can use Ivy's wings as a reference, das fine :3

xD Hruhuh yep, Erebus is one huge ass motherfucker. I wish I was better at perspective so I could draw him looming over some hapless Sekkain with his head in the clouds.

Passable? Seriously? They're amazing, at least as good as any other body part you do!

And thanks xD

Alas, perspective continues to elude me too :)

Niflheeeeeiiiiiiim! *makes small whimpering noise and hugs the boney thing* I still wish I had been given the chance to make her q.q

The title of your art dump makes me wish to see a Rainbowy child of Salus named Skittles >.>

This so deserves some fav's *hits the button*

I know I've said it a billion times already... but I luv your art Balu, especially the variety and the freakishness you are able to display <3

Reminds me I really gotta do an overhaul of Leech so she may join the Snowflake-club aswell. ^^

;u; I am still most glad you liked herrr ~<3 And you could still create her, if you felt so inclined. Another Bone dragon running around wouldn't hurt anyone.

Mondschmied Featured By Owner May 13, 2011
Well, first there's the certain lack of character slots and the fact that my already existing chars aren't even getting the attention they deserve...

...also, last time I asked if I could still make her (and I don't even remember who said it) I was told that since she's been a Chaos in the past, I'd have to win a contest to be able to create her.

And lastly... I must admit that I'm a little intimidated by the awesome job you did creating her. I'm not sure if I could really give her credit. Let alone play her how you designed her to be. I know that's silly... but she's somehow too good to be touched, too sweet to be soiled by playing her... If you understand what I mean ;) Which is why I didn't insist that she's only just a Bone and not a Chaos and tried to make her come to life anyway.

I'm probably just being rather silly.

Hruuu well, apart from lack of character slots I can say you would indeed be able to make her without any trouble. She is a Bone now after all, and as such does not retain any of her previous chaotic powers. ;u; So if you ever want to create her, she would be most acceptable. I'm glad you like her so <33

|D I'm almost constantly drawing Sekkain dragons. The earliest would be Erebus or Tillimens from August last year, and the most recent is Yuurei who I finished today.
