[COMMISSION] - Gift of Life by Gewalgon [COMMISSION] - Gift of Life by Gewalgon
"It's a gift to enjoy this moment,
this beautiful nightsky.
It's a gift to be together with you,
sharing a deep bond of love.
It's a gift to be here,
being what I am...

It's the precious gift of life! ♥"





So... it seems I did my first commission! :la:
Well... it was a weird feeling drawing for money... I'll make sure to use the money for good things! :-)
It's a blackpaper drawing for Rykaran who commissioned me to draw his two characters Rykaran and Dorak together in a forest-glade under the nightsky where the stars should look like a "belt".
I really really hope you like it, I enjoyed to draw this one a lot! :D
Thank you for your support! :heart:

The details on this drawing are amazing, the shading is done perfectly, the stars look real. My first thought when I saw this drawing was "wow, this is amazing!" The trees look so real. The grass looks neat Because the way you drew it look like it is thicker at the bottom and thinner at the top. The dragons look so realistic that at first i thought they were from a hd movie! The band of stars in the sky looks amazing. I also like the way that you colored the night sky to make the space around the stars look brighter than the surrounding areas of space. The only two issues that I find in this drawing are that the grey dragon's eye is hard to see, and that one of the stars looks like a plus sign. Other than that, this drawing looks great.
What do you think?

Hi. Very nice art. For me dragons are not only an creatures of fantasy but also a ?dragons? who have a soul, who can dream too, who made the world aronud better like most of us. I feels myself very relative to this dragons you draw. I like to watch to star shining sky too..
Thank you for this art.

Well, what can I say... like you already said, dragons are much much more than just fantasy.
Every story has its true center. And maybe you will find out why you feel so familiar with the dragons I draw.
I'm glad you like my works.

:o (Eek)
Die Drachen sehen großartig aus! Wie sich das Licht des Nachthimmels auf ihren Schuppen wiederspiegelt, das Gras, der Himmel und der Mondschein, der zu ihren 'Füßen' fällt - alles harmoniert perfekt miteinander!
Einziges Manko ist das Laub der Bäume, das sieht eher aus wie Zuckerwatte^^; , aber es fällt einem auch nur beim genauen Hinsehen auf, weil man am Anfang von dem Gesamtbild erstmal umgehauen wird :D

Herzlichen Dank! :-)
*lach* So hab ich das noch gar nicht gesehen... Zuckerwatte :D
Und tatsächlich sehen sie an manchen Stellen wie Zuckerwatte aus xD
Das bessert sich sicher noch, so oft zeichne ich Bäume jetzt nicht, und mein Fokus in dem Bild lag doch mehr bei den Drachen und dem Himmel^^

Danke für deinen Kommentar!^^

Not really, that was the single/only commission I've got yet, but that's really okay, since it's a weird feeling drawing for money ^^;

It's so pretty - I love all those colors coming up off the black. I think you did an especially good job on the sky and the grass.
