Dragon Age Origins: Old Gods are a Lie by Berserker79 Dragon Age Origins: Old Gods are a Lie by Berserker79
As the city of Denerim burns around him, Riordan bravely faces the Archdemon in an attempt to end the Blight...

"Screaming all his hate to the hideous creature that is hate incarnated, the Warden thrust his blade into the Archdemon's thick hide, spilling the monster's blood...".

Ooooh this is fantastic and epic and a lot of other things that should be written in capital letters. One of the best moments in the game. Wonderful and dynamic. I agree with Olive though, more blood! :stab: My poor Riordan... :tears:

Thank you very much! :) Too bad the Archdemon had the upper hand, but the overall scene is really soooo epic and it was also fun to picture!

lol, since you all agree on the matter of the blood, I might have a bloodier version done one day, but I'm too lazy to go back to it now... :roll:

Glad you like it! :happybounce: I was looking for an idea for a Riodan work and this action scene from DAO was very fitting! :)

fiiiico, poi un giorno mi devi spiegare come si fanno i render 3D che sono curiosa :P

Grande Riordan... credo abbia voluto ripetere le gesta di Duncan in 'La Chiamata' in cui aveva sconfitto il drago salendogli in groppa e atterrandolo, permettendo così agli altri di finirlo :)

Mi fa piacere che anche questo lavoro sia risultato interessante! :) E ti posso dare sicuramente qualche indicazione per creare qualcosa sul genere! :)

E sì, mi sa che Riordan aveva effettivamente pensato di impiegare la tecnica stile Duncan, ma si è dimenticato un particolare importante! Doveva avere a portata di mano i rinforzi anziché spedire Alistair ed il Custode in giro per Denerim... :roll:
