....dreaming?? by GreenViggen ....dreaming?? by GreenViggen
when I started (loong time ago) sketching and figured out the idea.. my thoughts where dancing around a few ideas.. in one hand had the idea painting about ¨sometimes be careful of what you are wishing for..¨ like in a ancient chinese fable where one man was so devoted to dragons ,that one day the king of dragons heard about that man (and his devotion) , desided to go down to earth and visit him ,the man when saw the dragon king ,died of fear..
so there was one of the idea in mind.. in the other hand : ok here is a girl liening down the tree,..and behind that dragoon whit that large big face and his ¨big round shaped¨eye ,..lookind and looking, stareing, watching.. but.. that beast is really only ¨¨looking¨¨ to her? what is exactly doing?
.. is that one of her dreams? coming to real? maybe that is what she is wishing fr.. ? or the dragon is somehow controling her,(and his mind)..?
and in the middle I tryed to bound all that whit the book, rings, her posture and gests and the two sparks coming out of her head..
¨(yeah yeah,.. oh ho ho! Im a very smart guy! :P :D
by the way the sign¨symbol of the book means _(if my memory is right) ¨arrow¨ in old chines alphabet.. I take a license here and used the arrow like a symbol of the power of penetration,and the power of achiveing places where the old gods are liveing..and the power of make his wishes to be heard.

^^ ..  u know .. when I was  painting it ..the whole idea was  to play with  the "strange, and dark and e.a. poe like terror" .. other thing in mind was a chines old tale that was about a common man who love so much dragons ,and adore them so much.. one day this was noticed  by one dragon ..and he desided to  pay a visit  to this man..  when this  man saw  the dragon  he  barely died ..    in this picture  ( and  in a not so virtuous way XD ) I was trying to say that..  if u dream something  be careful or prepared because those  dreams can come true ! :P   
 thansk you somuch for your appreciation Flora :)

This is so wonderful...I can't begin to tell you everything I love about it! The dragon in the background is an excellent touch. Its eye is mesmerizing. Do you use models or reference photos for paintings like this? It seems like you must - the anatomy is perfect! :love:

Oh snap! I'm curious about the creature in the background too! :omg: For her sake, I hope he's a pet!

Beautiful, absolutely gorgeous painting, by the way. ^^ It's hard to believe this is digital, it really looks traditional to me.

hahahaha no only the sketch was traditional pencil ,.. hmm yea the dragon is an important part of that illustration.. and it is not her pet :D!! he.. but when you saw it you think about that .. part of my paln work wel! my intention si that when someone look at this ilustration.. it make him or her think about. ¨¨what the hell?? what is going on here..? not all thing here looks so obvious..
