A charming naga by gamera1985 A charming naga by gamera1985
A charming naga and a little girl, wandering from town to town. As much of you will ask, YES, the cobra is her tail, which explains why, in fact, she doesn't really need to charm it.
But since people in towns prefer the traditional way. ;p

They're not blood related: the naga found the little girl a few years ago, when she was just a baby. Since then, she is like her child, and she's helping her to collect money from passerbies. There are really poor, but they don't care, as long as they are together. =D

The naga is somehow a paria and so, she would like to give the girl some education once she will be old enough to go to school. For that, she's trying to save a bit of money, but it's merely enough... still, she dreams about it.

This is still my favorite from your early artworks, tells a story in a single panel.  You should a sequel showing the little girl as a teenager.

If we're talking in Dungeons and Dragons terms you just gave her pocket change.

Pocket change for an adventurer, remember NPC's get massive discounts on everything since it's the only way the D&D economy works.

I think I would take both in so they would have a place to stay.  The naga (i.e., lamia) could keep house while the girl goes to school.  There does not have to be any intimacy between the naga and I, though I think a strong relationship would develop and the little girl would be my daughter as well.

A perfectly delightful painting. The naga is beautiful; she seems to be charmed by her own playing, which is not a bad thing at all. The little girl is full of life and joy. The passers-by are, well, passers-by. They're not the main story.

Very well done. I'm glad it showed up in the magical musical things group.

The cuteness...

On question though. Does she actually have a cobra head on her tail, or is it just a fake "head" she slips over the tip of her tail?
