Huh, I never saw this in your gallery before but I did read this book a long time ago and loved it. Mostly because I wanted some pet mini-dragons. xD

I love the sense of movement in this piece between her hair flying wild and the antics of the firelizards :)

Hard to find good Pern fanart , and I think this is one. Well drawn , & I like the bare feet and the short legged pants on Menolly . Your fire lizards have a unique & romantic look. I also like how you've avoided giving your Pern people the usual Renaissance wear , which always bugs me when I see it. Logically , their clothes would probably bear a look descended from the spacefaring roots of the original Pernese colonists , though made of local materials. Somehow Pern seems largely forgotten , which is a shame. Good books & lots of things for the illustrator to explore.

Thanks! Yeah... an online acquaintance of mine asked to color this, and I think he's finishing up now, so I'll be able to submit it in color pretty soon! Yay :D

And the award for BEST picture of Menolly EVER goes straight to you. Seriously, this picture is stunning, such a beautiful flow to it. I would love for you to do more Pern artwork, you've got style!

:blushes: You are too kind! You and Kalina both! ;) Actually, looking at your gallery and ~WeWoKa's, I have to say that both of your Pern artworks are really inspirational... and it's inspiring me to do more! I'm so glad I've met such amazing artists as you two! :hug: to you both!!! :)

Now, if only I can get my fiance to get hooked on Pern novels... hmm... yes.... :evillaugh:

I love all the Pern series, but the Harper Hall Trilogy is my fave.
And I re-read them all the time too!!
This is magnificent.
Maseiya Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2007  Professional Filmographer
I am SO sorry for the late reply T_T

I'm so glad there's another Pern lover out there!!! We should be friends. Yes. :D

Thank you for your comment ^^
slithytoves Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2007
I repaid your late reply with an equally late (if not more later, er... *cough*) reply.
And the feeling is mutual! Friends indeed! Pern lovers must unite! ^_^
Maseiya Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2007  Professional Filmographer
Yay! I actually JUST reread Dragonsong and Dragonsinger... god they're such great books... T_T :hug:
slithytoves Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2007
Ah yes, the Harper Hall Trilogy is so amazing. I try to re-read them at least once a year.
That's usually what takes up my summer--reading!
Maseiya Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2007  Professional Filmographer
I think I *am* going to be working on a manga version of at least one chapter from Dragonsinger. :D You've got me all excited again! xD

This is so wonderful I wish it was colored. I love it. The harper Hall Trology are my favorite books.
Maseiya Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2005  Professional Filmographer
Ahh thank you!! The Harper Hall Trilogy has always been my favorite as well. I read the first two at least twice a year ever since I first read it, which was in 8th grade!! And I will color it... someday... when I have the time... ^_^ I promise!!!!
