I think these dragons are beautiful and wonderfully detailed! This Valentine's event was also one my favorites. Thanks to TJ and spriters for a great holiday :D

Wait, the new hatchies are gendering female? That is so weird. I hope it gets fixed for the people affected. 

 

I do love the new sprites, though. But I'm partial to the pink and green color combination. 

TJ posted that it has been fixed across the board and they are all male now.  

 

thanks for the beautiful dragon.  was afraid by the egg it would resemble the glacewing but i really like this one.  wonderful colors and detail.  

also liked the valentine event.  thanks to everyone who organized it.

Oh... I wasn't quite sure what to expect with the flower theme or if I'd like it, but I'm pleasantly surprised at how awesome these new sprites look! I usually prefer dragons that look more like typical Western dragons, so these are absolutely wonderful to me. Thank you to the spriters and TJ for another lovely holiday dragon. :)

It's lovely. Reminds me of old-fashioned children's book illustrations. :)

Is it just me or are v-day eggs hatching easier then normal this year? In general my eggs normally hatch with 1.5k views or so (though some take much more then that, like the zyus), usually don't even start cracking until 1k or so, but all these v-day dragons this past week... I currently have two eggs with stage 2 cracks both with less then 600 views (one has less then 500 right now). Is this happening for anyone else? (And I know dragons with very little time often need less views to hatch, but these guys aren't even ER-timed yet!)

I would like to thank for the invitation - I'm so happy that I could contribute to the site once again; it was the third time, if I remember correctly.  A huge thank you to the in-cave artists and other invites, and to TJ for making this event a reality. 

 

Hope you are all enjoying the event despite the glitch train and certain faux pas moments. I certainly am. This has been pretty insane. 

 

I love the extra Colossus art - he's adorable like a big dog with a stick. Good boy.

 

Two words about my plants:

Generally, my concepts were rather spontaneous. Just as for other invited artists, the details of the event were top secret, so it should be understandable that some flowers may resemble one another <3 

I'm not sure which one of the three plants is my favorite. I would say the Feather Aechmea, loosely based on the actual Aechmea - a popular houseplant - except made to look softer, fuller and fluffier, like a tuft of fur or a clump of decorative feathers. I assume it's nice to the touch. 

The Spiral Lily - also nicknamed Mrs Squiggles - takes the second place, I think. This one isn't really based on anything, I simply wanted something blue - which is my favorite color - and unusual looking. Maaaybe that was a personal reference for my own lilies. Just maybe.

And finally, the Glowbells, I think the concept behind them is pretty straightforward. 

 

I should be sleeping, yet I'm still here, kinda rambling. Oops. <3 Also, typos.

It does seem like this whole event was coordinated with this dragon release. But I thought no one but TJ, not even the spriter, knew ahead of time what the new dragon would be. I could be wrong there, though.

 

It could really easily just be TJ choosing a flower based dragon for a flower event or choosing the dragon and deciding flower event. Nobody has to know what the dragon is besides him in both situations. I feel like the spriter has to know though? Since they get alts that they have to edit. But of course I don't know that for a fact.

 

As far as the dragon. I love it. The green wings are great and the dark pink and the flowers, I just love it.

Spriters usually come up with their Alts when they submit the idea, rather than after the fact :)

Spriters actually only learn of if their dragon was picked the same time we do for holiday releases.

Either way my point still stands that TJ only needs to decide its a flower event for it to be linked to a flower dragon he choose to release. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Thank you so much for the invitation to contribute for this event! I'd never sprited any flowers before so I hope I didn't let anyone down.

 

The event turned out amazing, the writing, dragon portraits, other flowers and everything was great

 

I'm sorry for the second Zelda flower in the bunch but I just couldn't help making one, even though I was sure at least one other person would do one of their own but I had to ;-;

Did you check the shadow walker? Hes a bit tricky. ;)

 

Or the pygmy. Way down there...

It was the only one duplicate flower and they were beyond perfect for the mint

Good accident 10/10

Possibly the shadow walker, a few different people have missed that one
