One of my three ideas for novels (yes I have three fairly coherent ideas just ready and waiting for me to kick them out of my brain and onto the page) involves a very complex underworld to our own. A world of magic and elves and mermaids and werewolves and Gods and yes, you guessed it, dragons. It wouldn't be a world created by Patrick Harrison if it didn't involve dragons some how. Now the world itself is like I said, very complex, but one of the parts of this world is the Dragon Mantles. The Mantles are seven incredibly strong powers that "settle" onto a specific individual in a generation (aka they reincarnate). They give the bearer the ability to control a specific power and turn into a completely kick ass dragon form. They provide long life for the short lived mortals and unfortunately give a time limit for the immortal species. They cure Lycanthropy and Vampirism and are just over all really bad ass. xD
So the other day I decided I wanted to sketch a few of them. I got through two before I had to move onto another project but I thought I'd start by sharing them with you guys.
