Leap of Faith

This is an important piece for me... First of all this is my 100th Deviation! It's also very symbolic...I recently quit my full time job to pursue a freelance career. There was a leap of faith in this decision...The dragon symbolizes the doubts and fears of this decision. The knight symbolizes the courage and focus I must have to be a success. There will no doubt be a collision...Basically this is where I am in my life...Will I be a success and conquer my fears or will I fail?

In all the action of this piece, I have far greater emotional reaction with the horse than anything else. Whether or not he knows what is coming, whether or not he knows how steep the next ridge may be, whether or not the fact that his true chance of making it out of this confrontation alive, is likely very slim.

He still makes the jump.

Loyal and true to the end, even if that end is his eventual death.

Amazing Work!!! The Only Problem For The Knight Is When He Kills That Dragon Victoriously, He Gonna Look Down & See A 10,000 Foot Drop & Say Oh S************!!!!!!!!!!!!. :lmao:

good point... :nod: I think in that situation I'd rather hitch a ride on the dragon, keep it as a pet! :shrug:

Very intense piece, with a good use of focus/blurring. I know it's an old work (and you've probably improved since then) but that doesn't mean I appreciate this piece any less. I think everyone has felt like this at some point in their lives, and it's great to see it expressed so eloquently and elegantly.
