atlas by talons-and-tails atlas by talons-and-tails
It all spills out
Reckless but honest words leave my mouth
Like kerosene on the flame of doubt
I couldn't make it right
Alarms will sound
But it's too late for holy water now
Sooner or later the fire dies down
I'll open up my eyes

Anger
, Sleeping At Last



holy cow, it's done. i've been working on this since jan/feb, and it's the most complicated shading i've ever done??? i'm actually really excited?? and i even like the background?? aaaa???? this features my darling datura in what what SUPPOSED to be a scene from my fanfiction but sorta spiraled off into its own thing, so idk. anyway!! hope y'all like it!!!!

Gosh, this turned out stunning!! You did an absolutely fantastic job with everything here. The texture in the shading is beautiful and gives it a really crisp feel, and you perfectly preserved the expression too.
Gorgeous work on the background too, just look at the depth of those sandstone cracks! Day100 - Squealing 
Sometimes you just gotta put in a lot of time to get everything right. I salute you for your persistence and determination! It really paid off :grinstarenod:

I am pretty sure I saw a dragon very similar to that in the exact same pose.  Is it just deja vu or am I right?
