Sea Creature by asynjur Sea Creature by asynjur
Based in part on a real sea horse called the sea dragon (which is very tiny), and the rest is just fantasy.

Thanks! But it's not amazing. I was putting some time and practice into drawing for a while. I don't have the patience for it anymore, though, I've stopped working on art. Maybe I will again someday. But it's like playing an instrument, or any skill--you can do it, you just need to put in the hours, drawing pictures, working at it. I've seen many people go from stick figures to fantastic images in only a year. Good luck!

Somehow I never saw this before... I'm glad you made it your featured deviation! I really love the colors -- it looks like a dragon of the sky now. I love the way you did the semi-sheer, delicate parts of the dragon (like the webbing between its fingers). Very nice!!

Thank you! It looks a bit like he's floating through the clouds instead of water, not that there's anything wrong with that.. I had to make the surroundings light, because I'd made the creature dark and I wanted him to show up!

Oooooh i just looooove that poem,but you already knew that ;)
Also,i think the pic wasn't working when i last tried to see it,or maybe it was... :o Anyway,i like it very much,you have a good idea there. For possible improvements i'd suggest drawing on that character a bit more, he misses a bit of personality,like he was rendered as a model. Also,i'd darken the background a bit around him,to get him to stand out,and overall maybe a bit of more contrast wouldn't hurt... Just suggestions,use as you see fit ;):D
Great work!

Thank you! Well, when I was younger, I thought about stuff like that. But, seriously, I was never determined enough to work on a big project like that, and then to take all the rejection trying to get published. I pretty much thought my creativity, such as it is, would be in my own mind more than anything else...

But later the internet came along. I like making websites--the combination of problem solving to get the code the way you want, the writing, the design, the art, the chance to interact with others--all rolled into one. It's nice to have that window on the world, otherwise I'm pretty much an isolationist. Never had anything like the internet when I was a kid. Now I know I'm sounding like a grandma (walked 20 miles in the snow to school, up hill both ways, LOL) but I wonder if you kids these days know how lucky you are! So this is my outlet, no pressure or expectations like you'd have to deal with if you made it a job, no publishers, no deadlines, no one telling me to change this or that. I'd never make websites for money either, it's just a hobby, a chance to do my own thing!

You're quite welcome. I see...well I'm sure you're still good at the job you have... hee !!
well that's b/c billy was growing up with you I'm sure.. *smiles* hehe and dont' worry about sounding old... I know that I am very lucky b/c without the net I wouldn't be as passionate about the things I feel and do..I would still be the little girl that kept to herself and never was liked or admired... without the net I wouldn't be thought I was "cool" but it not coolness that matters..it's that I have a voice .... without the net I would have probably been way more introverted...and I never would have met you or any of my other awesome DA friends... man that makes me sad thinkin about it.... oh well ...I'm glad I have it..nyo!!
