I was affected by this and had to share a few thoughts with you .... For me, this is a powerful scene that depicts a multitude of interpretations from psychological to mystical. The ravages of mankind's violence upon itself, time and again inflicting war and destruction upon what once was. The girl symbolizing the undying sense of innocence, compassion and a powerful connection to the natural realm that is ever present. The water dragon (water symbolizing source of life) is part of that long lost realm, that innocence that war destroys. Yet it still lives within the hearts of those who know that nothing truly dies, the bond never truly breaks. (On another level, as a child of the 70's, I see the Vietnam war and how one innocent child might reach deep inside of her mind for that "safe place" to hide, be saved, to survive and exist away from the horrifying destruction of life around her.)
Artistically, it is painted very nicely. I like the vivid colors that span across your canvas in a rainbow-like pattern. The dragon is wonderful. The eyes are my favorite part. They are compassionate, gentle and focuses on the girl, not on the chaos from which she came out of...
Question: She seems to be holding something in her left hand. What is it? <3
sorry for the late reply, your comment was so lovely that I wanted to wait until I have enough time (:
So first thank you for sharing your thoughts, which are very interesting. I really like your interpretations, especially the innocence of nature that's destroyed through war. Wahh I like everything. I can't tell you how awesome it was to read your comment! Exactly my thoughts, though I would never be able to depict them as well as you did. So again thank you so much for this most lovely comment!
so this is modern time period and did the dragon destroy that town? The detail on this is very balanced so much so that at first I thought you had defined every scale before close examination . Great work
heh you´re not the first to tell me, and the more time passes the more I would like to write a story about it. Though I´m really bad at writing, it wouldn´t be very good (: Still I think I will one day
you can write a story to it if you want, just for fun, I´d love to read one (: thanks for your lovely comment!
no problem. Im worken on my own story at the moment. But yea your picture would go great with a story visit fanfiction.net and see if you can find a good writer. If you do it yourself you can make money off it and your picture can be the front cover.
Ist mir sofort aufgefallen, als ich es gesehen habe. Ich find das nicht so nett, wenn einfach die Bilder irgendwo verwendet werden, aber meine sind eh nicht so gut, da kann ich auch mal anderen helfen Danke für das
Those colors you used are gorgeous ^_^ I really like the way you transitioned from the cooler colors on the left to the warmer ones on the right. It's very smooth and well done (:
Water dragons are quite interesting. I like your design for one; it looks very long. That's the neat thing about the ocean though, the environment is generally better for extremely large animals than land is.
