Google's whole network was down for 5-10 minutes prior to the uploading/making of this blog post. when Google goes down for their rolling server restart, it is not the same as blizzard running rolling restarts. i thought to myself: I NEED TO UPDATE MY ART BLOGUUUUUU.
anyways, here's the finished Enviro of the Week:
In the skies above the western regions, naturally occurring magic crystal formations have caused some of the mountains to float to high altitudes. These crystals are infused with the air elemental magic, and for this reason, when a crystal vein has reached critical mass, is able to lift a whole piece of a mountain to the sky. The dragons that roost in these floating mountains lay their eggs in areas where the crystals would form near or around the clutch, allowing the dragons to absorb some of the crystal properties very early on. The magically infused dragons are thus able to manipulate winds, allowing them to fly higher and faster than other dragons. Some of the greater dragons of this air brood have been known to have power to create storms various kinds, manipulating air thermals to cause even rain, ice, or snow.
Thanks Noah Bradley for the encouragement and advice.
Let's see which ConceptArt.org weekly event i'll be tackling next week!
