I scanned the 2 pages of the LED Dragon and knitted them together. I've done some color correction and will finish it up when time permits.

After working with the image and looking through the FSS art books carefully I can see that there are actually 2 different versions of the LED Dragon image. The earlier one shows the dragon with more white legs that have yellow/green veins showing. The newer image shows more gray in the legs and the veins are removed. Does anyone know why this is?

I had to scan the later image as it doesn't have a huge gap in the middle but I tried to get closer to the colors of the earlier image.

I believe one of those images is the old LED Dragon that died. The other image may very well be the evolved form of Suezo.

Then again, its probably just Nagano revising his images like he is wont to do...

I did a little more clean up on the image last night but I'm not done yet.

I finished the image late last night. I'll try to load up the first draft of the page tonight.

The first draft of the page is up. I really need everyone's help on this one. Please tell me where to find other dragon images in the art books/manga/etc.

I'm not sure what the other dragons look like, so it hard to say. But in FSS Designs I, there's something that looks like it could be the Black/Jet Dragon, but it's given a length of 35 meters (much smaller than the smallest dragon) and kinda looks bio-mechanical.

Anyway, your profile on the dragons is excellent, both the pictures and write up. Well done.

That black dragon-like picture in FSS Designs 1 was of the Kfil, a cybernetic weapon system from another dimension. They are supposed to be more powerful than a typical Mortar Headd (on the level of a Machine Messiah?) and Lachesis will have an encounter with them in the distant future. Hopefully Nagano will get to that portion of the manga sometime around 2030 :)

I'm searching the pages of the FSS manga this week for dragon images worth scanning. I've found a few. The search continues.

The good news for me is my former employer may be done with me in around 2 weeks. Then I won't be working 2 jobs anymore. That will allow me a lot more time.

I finished cleaning up the dragon skeleton image that was a 2 page spread. I've found its text translated on pages 62 and 63 of issue 8 of the English translation of FSS manga. Is that translation good? Should I just use text from it?

I scanned and cleaned up some more black and white dragon images tonight. I've got 2 more images from volume 6 to scan and then I'll move on to later volumes.

Whew! All black and white dragon images are scanned and cleaned up. I need to get ready for work tomorrow but I will try to find time soon to size the images and add them to the Dragons Page.

That's most of the images. The Suezo images come next.
