Meeting The Dawn by keisinger037 Meeting The Dawn by keisinger037
Well, it's my favourite WoW creature - Time-Lost Proto-Drake.

Time-Lost Proto-Drake is a extremely rare dragon which occasionally appears among the mountains of The Storm Peaks. It is especially sought after because it has a 100% chance of dropping reins of the Time-Lost Proto-Drake when killed. Because of its rarity, many players may hunt it for weeks before they even see it at all, much less kill it themselves.

I've got this mount almost two years ago (summer 2011), but and now this story doesn't leave me indifferent г_г

I had been camping TLPD for several months, one of them was NON-STOPPING 24/7 and it was really insane time! No sleeping, no resting, only watching the monitor, waiting and hoping. Finally after a minimum of 30 mad days of sitting on round the clock, I caught it (frozen lake spot).

Best mount anyway.
So pity it cannot be real :C

Wonderful job!! *-* It reminds me when I found it, but your draw makes me feel this memory so real!

It took me more than half a year to catch him with my main >:c Then the next week I found it again and when I logged into my alt it still there :D

Great job! :heart:

Gosh darn it..

I had him, my baby :c. He was by far my FAVORITE mount I had him forever but now I don't play WoW anymore and my account is like.. dormant... I will eventually play, so I guess I still have him. <3 And I have had him as a mount for about.. 3 or more years. <3 Took me THREE months. :U

This is beautiful. I kept this in my list even after favouriting it because it needs a comment.

I have still yet to capture him, but one day I will. Besides that, the actual art of this piece is amazing. I can't imagine drawing the background... how long did it take you? Did you use reference from the game or did you do it from memory? It's gorgeous, and I love it.

It took me about 15 hours to do a background. I used my old game screenshots and they helped me to paint architectural structures more appropriate and detailed :3

everybody knows it's called the time-lost proto-drake because of how much time you lost looking for it

As an owner of TLPD myself, I get some hardcore feels from this. When you kill it, it was the best feeling ever. My heart was pounding, I was yelling when it was 1-2am and my parents woke up cause of it. I couldn't fall asleep because of the adrenaline. It was one of the most epic things I've done and it only took me 3 months, about 16 hours a day for a whole summer. Saw it 3 times and killed it on the 4th.

I remember my feelings when I killed it. At first it had been a stupor and disbelief, and then I felt the hapiness. O_O It really was the greatest happiness lately! Omg. :onfire:
I killed Vyra about 80 times during my camping sessions, lol. Saw TLPD about 6 times, first time it was still alive, but I couldn't do the pull earlier. :dead:

I love the outskirts of Ulduar there, My favourite raid in WoW out side of Naxx.

Also very nice picture of it, speaks to the awesome style of the prison that holds the old-god.

Thank you) I absolutely agree with you, Ulduar is my favourite raid too, Ahn'Qiraj and Karazhan are also in the list. These places are really awesome. :aww:

Also, The Storm Peaks is the most beautiful location in the whole game. Mysterious atmosphere, amazing winter landscapes, stunning titan architecture, interesting references for the Norse mythology and cryptic and creepy storyline with the Old God - I love it all so much! :heart:

I didn't play Skyrim, but I know that there the game graphics is more qualitative and realistic. Whatever, northern locations in WoW look great. :)
