Heh... I can do the same ^^; Although sometimes it seems that people are in ways portraying what's on their mind, when they're doing seemingly random pictures. Even if whatever meaning might not have been intentional. But... yeah, I also over-anaylse things, a lot.

And I agree! When something has meaning behind it, it feels like it's... more, in ways. It can be hard though, as you almost have to convert a thought into an image, in many cases.

I have to agree. Pictures with a meaning beind them, are easier to see as 'art', as they are most often portraying something which is hard to accomplish when only doing 'random'pictures :3

Another very powerful work, Zara. Makes me curious what spawned it. *twitches beak* Hm. Not sure what to say, like with the previous image I commented on, there's some sort of power in it. Hard to really put a claw on what. Very emotional indeed, draggy.

Wow!

This is very impressive I must say.

Technically I think that is a very smooth and well drawn piece. This piece is very clear and the main character is well drawn. The wings are awfully symmetric (which is very good) and the ball's position between the wings is just perfect!

On the idea level, the piece itself connects perfectly to the title and I like the concept a lot a whole lot! This creation is the kind of creations that stick in your head... and in your favorites too ;)

:fav:

Cheers

I didn't think I'd get to say this, but.. you've improved :P The texture of the fur (feathers, maybe? I'm unsure) is pretty amazing o.O

Hee. Still can't think of decent things to write in comments :)

I love the flame-like design on the wings. And the way you do fur is absolutely amazing. The composition is awesome, except the way it's cut off, makes me want to see the rest of the dragon. Almost like a part of the drawing is missing. Very brillant work though! The entire piece has a powerful sense of feeling and emotion, it's very captivating.

I see the Zarathus is prisoner, with weapons pointed on her. She has wings, she'd like to fly away. Am I right?
I like the drawing... but yeah, it's sad...
Take care, Zarathus. - Nyo.

*randomly saw a comment about coloring it* Even if you don't color it, I like it. Then again, I've always been a sucker for black and white art.
awesome sybolism and design.

So long as they have you chained, the least of a threat, they're content to deal with you. When they have to. And under no other circumstances will they acknowledge your existence. :comfort:

This is beautiful, I love the design. It strikes me as being fairly tribal, and the fur and feather details are fantastic. I also love the expression on the dragon's face, it gives the impression of pained serenity. Very expressive.

I suppose things are fine. I'm just managing to get myself stressed over things that probably shouldnt matter though, as usual >.>'

I figured I'd ask the question since (like me) you seem to draw whats on your mind in one form or another.

Stress is something that pops its head at every chance it gets. I should draw a mini stress dragon, since I drew an anxiety one.

I think I want those wings on my back, to cover the wings I have there now. I love this picture so much. Its pretty powerful, and the name fits it well.... the detail on this picture is awesome. I have a few sketches in my gallery, if you wanna check them out sometime... but they are not as good as this is. :) I am slowly becoming better though.... slowly.....
