FR: Shadowbinder by SuperSymmetricCake FR: Shadowbinder by SuperSymmetricCake
My entry for the Flight Rising: Something About Dragons Contest. This is Shadowbinder, one of the gods from Flight Rising.

The original design may be seen here [link]
Shadowbinder belongs to ~neondragon, art belongs to me.

Winner or not, I learned a lot doing this piece. Neon has always been one of my major inspirations in dragon art, and this picture gave me the opportunity to further observe her work, only to admire it even more.

Gradient shading, where have you been all my life? :meow:

Thanks for looking! If this is too dark for you check out my other entry [link]
Also, if you wanna see some more of my dragon pictures, go here: [link]

Update: because you were all so awesome, I've uploaded a higher quality version. Thank you so much everyone :thanks:

The Shadowbinder is actually female; as are roughly half of the Dragon Gods. If I remember correctly, The Flamecaller, The Gladekeeper, The Plaguebringer, The Lightweaver and The Shadowbinder are all females, while The Windsinger, The Arcanist, The Earthshaker, The Stormcatcher, The Tidelord and The Icewarden are all males.

Just a little fun trivia!
