galaxy serpent by drachenmagier galaxy serpent by drachenmagier
“Galaxy serpents grant wishes.

But changing reality, no matter how trivial of a change it might be, requires unfathomable amounts of energy:
For each wish granted, the serpent devours a star.


So, be careful when you tell your children to make a wish upon the first star they see at night.

They might be heard.”

This is amazing! I love the amount of detail that you put into every part, like the details on the serpent's face, and the tiny little things you included on the person's armor! And the circles on the serpent's cheeks are a nice touch, too! One thing I noticed, though, is that what appears to be the unicorn's other leg. (right here i.imgur.com/T6Nb66a.png )
Correct me if I am wrong or if this was intentional or something else, but this leg looks a lot less defined and almost angular than the other leg. Of course you don't have to spend an hour making sure it looks perfect, but in general, try to make sure it looks natural. Once again, I love the amount of detail in everything! Especially how the scales each have their own little galaxy! And the underbelly looks very shiny and pretty! The unicorn's hair also looks very nice and wavy and flowy. Overall this is an amazing piece and it would take me hours to go through everything that's good about it!

i love the colors you used, and the texture of the scales go really well with the glow color. it would be nice to if you add a bit more detail to the human because the dragon's face is close and really well detailed. the dragons teeth are shaded nicely so i think you should add some shading detail to the unicorn and the human. you should probably add a bit more variety of colors to the human and the unicorn but not to much like maybe a bit of purple and a bit of pinkish blue. otherwise your drawing is wonderfully beautiful.

This is an absolutely nice drawing, I like the details and the combination of light and dark, the star being depicted as an unicorn with someone riding it, desperately fighting to defent themselves from the giant galaxy serpent which is trying to swallow it. I especially like the fact that the eye of the snake is completely black.

Well, now that you mention it, there IS a fetish about people getting digested by giant snakes...

No, that is no joke. And no, don't think I understand it.

And thank you very much for the compliments! :heart:

And I'm still guessing it's someone who's really into horses. It's not like that is rare on dA. d:

Maybe someone complained that your snake was too scary looking? I have no idea.  DA is kind of dumb about this stuff anymore.  They focus time on censoring things that shouldn't be censored, while nude pictures run around rampant with no mature tags.

Eh, in a world where everything but puppy dogs is a trigger, I wouldn't be surprised. -w-

And don't get me started on the frontpage. I learned about fetishes because of the dA front page. <.< And lots of those new information is on a level I could have lived better if I never heard of it.

This doesn't deserve a mature content warning. I feel like it having that steers people away. I saw your post asking why it has that on there now and honestly I have no idea. I'm just as confused as you are.

I'm guessing someone had a bad day and hammered the report button a dozen times? Erglebleh? It's a bit like slapping an M-content filter onto a pic of a puppy in my eyes, but... dunno, maybe that guy is really into horses? O-o
