Theme: The Ice Flight

Below is some great information to help you get started on your submission:

Flight Information

The frost dragons of the Southern Icefield are collectors. They prefer to be as rigid and cold as winter's chill. Of all the dragons, ice dragons are the most unemotional, carefully preserving the world around them to be later analyzed and catalogued. Fossils and artifacts are their favored treasures.

Region Information

The massive, frosted expanse of the Southern Icefield once enveloped the entire lower hemisphere, rivaling the size of the continents watching from above. The Icewarden and his brood now resist northern threats from the glacial prisons that they maintain at the bottom of the world. This harsh landscape has embittered generations of its denizens over time, lending to increasing hostility towards outsiders as the landmass continues to shrink.

The entries are looking creative so far! Couldn’t relate some of those to ice flight theme and it’s gonna be a colourful ice fest I can tell! Can’t wait to snipe the skins out of MP when it’s ice fest!

Go check out the song Niji :)
Aww such a nice song...
Good luck to everyone participating! Hope you don't mind these pings!

@LilithStrome Touch of Frost is cute, I like the variation in color! However, I think that eyes can't have skins applied to them? I'm pretty sure you can add eye color, but the real eyes will layer over it, so while it's probably okay, that's just wasted work. :(

@SilverLately Meltwater Matriarch is really pretty! Are the "gems" kind of like puddles, hence the name?

@Arkenrall I love the snowflake details on Winter Seal!! I think you might even want to add more previews of different colors, to really show them off! <3 And I wouldn't mind more snowflakes on the tail and such if you're still willing to work on it, haha.

@Aternova I love Snow-Crow Thicket, what a creative skin! I'd hope for it to win, but if not, you should maybe try something based on it for Trickmurk too - seems like it has potential for either! <3

@ProtonBonfire I think Gift of Silence is indeed really creative!! I had to google pink snow, is this about the "watermelon snow" with algae? I think your skin/cent has good chances if the judges take that into account (and know that it's real lol) but I'm sure a "safer" blue version would look lovely too! :) Maybe add some lilac to make it less generic?

ooooh thank you soo much for your kind comment >v<!!
-ah yes! that snow! (..) maybe? In fact I just draw it casually without too many thinks and refs, though pink snow do exists (idk if exists in Sornieth LOL) this skin is basically a product of my waywardness and mad pink love, I hope the snowflake shape can distinguish if from Arcane flight lol
I tried ice version here
it's my first entry, I just enjoy the joining and don't care if it'll win. I like the ice ver too but I just really don't want to give up pink ver. There's still enough time and I'm thinking about doing a new pure blue&safe ice skin, or a better pink skin so I can join with ice version if I have enough time~

thank you again, I enjoy the friendly discussion like this, I feel really warm and happy XD
