Are those...Are those the pgymys in the coastal image?

 

Or they just generic dragons?

 

They have a similar body type and coloration...

 

Also, what dragon is that in the Volcano biome?!

 

A Magma? But it doesn't look right. Too pointy.

 

This art is so lovely.

 

Not sure about the coastal dragons but the Volcano one looks like a Gold to me, and Nakase did the sprite work for them also.

 

The Jungle appears to show some kind of runic dragon carved into a rock on the right.

New alpine looks... really weird, to be honest. I preferred the old one. But the other biomes look pretty good.

New backgrounds are beautiful! Great job as always, Nakase.

Very pretty, I especially like the coast!

 

I don't get the excessively dark/black edges of the images though? Looks a bit awkward to me.

The dark edges are likely to focus the eye more towards the actual page content; gotta keep in mind that a lot of the image is covered by the site proper in practice.

These are great! I love the clear night sky in the Alpine backround. Seems very appropriate, since many stargazing and moongazing dragons are found in this biome.

Okay, what on earth are those pod-things in the Alpine image? I see mana crystals/streams/whatever in the other biomes, but what are the pods?? Are they mana? .... Floating electric mana? 

My thoughts exactly when I saw them! XD Not sure what they have to do with an alpine habitat!

Yeah, I've been thinking about how to possibly integrate the art into the mobile layout. Something like this is a quick pass at it.

Perfect 😊  it won't be in the way and I'll still be able to code hunt properly

Really awesome images! The Volcano is by far my favorite.

For anyone who wants to see the glow-up, I've made side by side comparisons!

 

 

Alpine

Coast

Desert

Forest

Jungle

Volcano

 

 

I love them all, the extra detail and crisper graphics are perfect.  It seems mana crystals and rocks have been emphasised.  My favourite glow-ups are Alpine and Volcano!

Looks like a lot of crystals appeared across the biomes, almost feels like main toppic of all of them. Love the volcano.

But at alpine it seems to be too much crytals, the old one was much more airy and natural. This looks more like alien biome. (also reminds me a lot of blood elves and their fell energy crystals)

Beautiful artwork!

Is it possible to give us the full versions so we can have them as computer wallpapers?

Just "view background image" and save that. They work fine then.

I agree that the alpine crystals feel a bit too much, especially since they're so huge. :o I like the artwork in general, still.

Yeah and as they are on the edges, on webpage they are very dominant.

 

...on second thought, alien biome would be interesting

If I switch away from the Blackout theme to see it, will I be able to switch back?  I want to check it out, but not lose the dark theme that makes my eye happy and the dragon colors look amazing. 😎

Maybe that's where the 2018 April Fools' green dragons came from. :D

Log out, and look at it all; then log back in. When logged out you can only see the default skins.
