[quote name="LicianDragon" date="2018-05-26 16:32:45" ] I am...extremely disappointed. We have been given many examples of the amazing artwork done on this site. We have the super intricate like crystal and cherub, down to the nicely subtle, like smirch and contour. This....What, did someone let their nephew mess with a dragon psd and a tablet and you decided to release it to us? It in no way holds to the art standard seen elsewhere on this site. Nothing is anywhere near this cartoony or flatly drawn. I redid an xxx obidisan dragon with firefly. This took me 20 [i]minutes[/i]. [img]https://pre00.deviantart.net/d698/th/pre/f/2018/146/c/f/capture_by_liciandragon-dccl724.png[/img] The colors for the fireflies and glow are picked directly from the colors of obsidian falcon and look; you can see them! Not only that, they look like actual fireflies! I say this as an artist who is far below the skill level of those working for FR. If I can scrap this up in 20 minutes, I know FR artists could do something utterly amazing. I know FR is praised for it's update frequency, but [b]please[/b] don't let that expectation start impacting the quality of what you give us. I'd much rather get some extremely well done genes every few months, than some half-worked genes monthly. Firefly should never have been released in this state. [/quote] Very significant stuff, right there. I actually kinda really want your version of fireflies now... haha.

This gene is amazing. I don't understand why people complain so much. I already have few dragons that need this gene: [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=41438609] [img]http://flightrising.com/dgen/preview/dragon?age=1&body=2&bodygene=7&breed=4&element=2&gender=1&tert=28&tertgene=22&winggene=8&wings=28&auth=833b29f9568cf6f206aaf807937246dfc6cadeb8&dummyext=prev.png[/img][/url] [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=36423384] [img]http://flightrising.com/dgen/preview/dragon?age=1&body=8&bodygene=15&breed=10&element=6&gender=0&tert=105&tertgene=22&winggene=16&wings=8&auth=8bbd36670a3f52e8c017af749d4eb0a30355eac9&dummyext=prev.png[/img][/url] [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=33823596] [img]http://flightrising.com/dgen/preview/dragon?age=1&body=74&bodygene=1&breed=10&element=10&gender=0&tert=152&tertgene=22&winggene=1&wings=31&auth=caac7669e5cbe9188824a6b39dd6706dd1d9b8b7&dummyext=prev.png[/img] [/url] [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=30646177] [img]http://flightrising.com/dgen/preview/dragon?age=1&body=10&bodygene=15&breed=10&element=6&gender=0&tert=39&tertgene=22&winggene=17&wings=39&auth=5890a4ddfbc223ebc381ba5e311cdc8a88d108e4&dummyext=prev.png[/img] [/url] [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=30871210] [img]http://flightrising.com/dgen/preview/dragon?age=1&body=10&bodygene=1&breed=6&element=5&gender=1&tert=45&tertgene=22&winggene=8&wings=45&auth=9248f02db18f6544ed7a7ac620e2bd8febca186f&dummyext=prev.png[/img] [/url] Too bad it is so expensive in AH :(

My only complaint is... I want more sparkles and fireflies! It looks too sparse and simple for a gene close to Runes.
Anyways, it can be pretty for XXY dragons~

When I saw this announcement I couldn't believe the quality of this gene. And I don't even know if I can reasonably call it a gene. It's so frustrating to see the constant inconsistency when it comes to gene quality. I expect a certain level of quality because the art team has set the bar high -- genes like Iridescent, Butterfly, Opal, Cherub prove the capability and creativity of the team. How am I supposed to praise this gene? With "fireflies" that are a child's rendition of a bug that have the airbrush tool overlayed on them? This is lazy. There's no other way to put it.

[/quote] I kinda feel bad for agreeing to this? It's not really "gene worthy" in my opinion as well. This kinda looks like an accent that had no effort put into it rather than a complimenting gene that makes your dragon pop or just make it look at least somewhat prettier. Even a basic gene like contour is more appealing than this. At least try to make them look like fireflies instead of small bugs a child would draw like butterflies with some airbrush tool hovering by them.
