How to save a life by TrollGirl How to save a life by TrollGirl
For :icondragon-realms: contest - [link] idea was to interprete one of the songs offered with a dragon-themed artwork.

While the theme is fantasy, the situation is real enough.
Sometimes we need someone to be near us when those we trusted fail us.

"Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life"

Watercolors, colored pencil, white gouache

Awwwwww. I want to have a dragon friend to keep me warm, too. This is touching.
I like the combination of blue and brown. And the salt - always! haha! I love the magical texture it adds.

The emotive context is very clear - and very kind - in this piece. And I do like the color choices on the dragon very much... Like water and autumn together.

The use of color here is phenomenal, but this is certainly a strong part in all of your works. I love the dragon's face, and the salt texture is added in all the right places. The detail of the cracks is very realistic and beautiful.
:heart:
One of my favorite works by you!

Well I saw the title And knew it was for the song, when I looked at it it was confirmed. But I found it from one of the others groups you added it too. :icondragon-lovers: I believe was the group I saw it added too. I hope they add this one though, It is one of the best (and actually to the song) Pieces I have seen yet! 10/10!
