When I saw the stilted ram
it whispered words to me
it told of things I should not know
and things I could not see

1st rule of D&D don't perception check random animals you come across on your quest.
I learned the hard way.

If you're wondering why i'm telling you this is because it was a ram.
Your artwork made me remember.

Man, this is some Avatar-level stuff going on here.
An angry Nature spirit is displeased with the human's thoughtless plundering of their Mother Earth, and thus causes a great tree to sprout up in the center of the town. Every day at sundown, the spirit appears at the tree in the form of a massive ram, which tears through the town, leaving nothing but destruction in its wake, while the people are powerless to stop it. Guns, traps, deals, and pleading are all useless. Their only hope may lie in the hands of a young girl wielding an ancient, magical dagger, who alone seems to understand the spirit's wild and furry-filled heart. But can an entire village rally itself to her side, and, more importantly, can they banish the beast while yet still heading it's call?

Ah, yes, Ms. Jones, nothing proclaims the soundness of your own opinion quite like rudely attacking someone else's and then blocking them so they can't properly defend themselves to you.

lol no
redundance
and what's a furry-filled heart? xD
Every once in a while I see self-important posts like this where a random person thinks they are a poet because they emphasize with words what we are supposed to see and interpret. Makes me cringe.
Obviously the girl is the only person who can see the ram.
You rather go add some more ponies and hentai to your favs.

There's something so rich and in-depth about how you paint - every scene you make just grabs me and it feels like I've been brought to that place.

Always excited to see a new submission from you. =]

Reminds me of a book I had read recently just that is was an old stag with antlers who held the whole world.
Absolutely wonderful image, I really love the surreal touch and the well-done light.

Until I scrolled down to see the crowd passing by, I had thought this was Attack on Titan but with animals. It really does bring about the same kind of awe and dread as the Colossal titan though.

This already looked amazing before I really, actually looked at it. At first, I thought it was just a cool, somewhat surreal art piece. Then, after reading the poem, I looked closer. I saw the girl. I saw the knife. I saw that no one else could see the ram. it told of things I should not know/ and things I could not see. I think there's more going on here then just a giant ram. I see a battle, between a little girl and a monster only she can see. Maybe it's real, maybe it's not. Maybe it's dangerous, maybe she is. Maybe it represents nature, or maybe it's just a monster. Maybe this piece is about things we can't see that are still very real. 

What I'm trying to say is, I appreciate that there's more going on here than just a giant ram in a place where a giant ram shouldn't be, and I think this is a very interesting drawing.

The girl's dress is blowing backwards, as if by a stiff wind.  The wind is not coming from the direction of the ram, but from the direction her body is facing. Yet the chimney smoke is not being blown by equal force nor is anyone at ground level being affected by such a strong wind.  Why?

And is that a white rat on the cobblestones behind her feet?  I see the artist has a hashtag for pika, but pikas do not have tails.  Is the rodent (whatever it is) alive or dead?  For that matter, are the crows feeding on the back of the ram?  Is the ram both alive and dead at the same time?

The artist's work is very trippy.  I love it!

I didn't even see the mouse until you pointed it out! It looks like it's with her.

Hmm... if the ram's both alive and dead, that might explain the patches in its fur. Parts of it almost look like they're starting to decompose, but maybe I'm reading too much into it.
