This is a painting based on a old German saga called Lohengrin.
In this image you see Lohengrin riding a small boat pulled by a friendly swan, who offerd to do this job. (so no animals were harmed in this story ) In the story the boat is not described precisely, so I added some details myself Lohengrin is described to carry a golden horn at his belt and a shield painted with the image of a dove. He is the son of Parcival and lives with his father in Monsalvat, the castle of the Grail Kingdom, from where he comes to stand in for a falsely accused maid in a Gods Judge.
As you can probably tell, this is one of my more personal paintings and it was painted as more therapeutic than anything. It's somewhat reflective of where I am in my life and how I feel about it.
I won't go into detail, but lately I've felt often stuck when it comes to my work and personal life and to me, it feels like being in a cage with the key just out of reach. That's how this image came into my head.
There's also a bit of Jane Eyre influence, as you can probably tell by the title and imagery. I'm a nerd.
I felt I needed to draw him. Didn't want him to think he's been forgotten. ^^ I admit it'll take a while to get used to the design, I pretty much improvised on most of this, so it might be a little off ^^' But he's a truly gorgeous dragon. I enjoyed drawing him. :>
He's the first (and so far the only) adoptable I've ever bought. Got him from oukamiyoukai45. It was such an interesting way to adopt, using a song of my choice as inspiration. His song is "What if the storm ends" by Snow Patrol. (it's one of my favorites) I named him Liron, it means "my song" or "my joy", I thought it would suit him. Before I only called him Storm, and I think some will keep using that nickname. It's alright tho. ^^
I'm not used to adopting tho. It's a little trickier to get to know him, since I didn't summon him myself. But I think it'll be alright if I give it some time. I don't know very much about him yet, but he strikes me as a dream traveler, so maybe we could travel together through the nightlands. He has a very flowing, almost liquid feel to him when he moves, a bit like that of my cat totem or Semyon, so if I go with him, preferably on his back (or more like behind his head), I think he'll be like a river of light moving through the darkness. That's how I imagine it. Not sure you can see what I mean. But if I ever get better at painting (and I plan to eventually) I might be able to paint it out and show you. An alternative would be to learn animation.
Been asking sis to make a sculpture of him too. Not sure I could ever afford it, but maybe if I drew 65 drawings for her we could trade (yes I think a sculpture by her equals 65 drawings, or more). I just really want to paint it with glow in the dark paint Like really really! Maybe I should learn to use supersculpy and try to sculpt him myself, but it wouldn't be as good as Escaron's thingsies!!!

This started off as a tiny sketch in my moleskin, but a few people liked it so I decided to make a big version Not quite sure about the background, but I totally love the girl I put iridescent medium on certain parts of her for effect, like the design on her dress. Wouldn't this be an awesome costume?
I made some designs for a thing called "Fiesta del Sol" the objetive was to represent differnt periods , from romantic, edwarian, victorian to beginings of belle epoque. It was a fun challenge and it was also cool to see my designs materialized and on tv
