Fae n the dragon by parmentides Fae n the dragon by parmentides
97 x 130 cm. Acrylics and oils on canvas.

I've always been fascinated with dragons. I've been wanting to paint one for some time. I made 15 sketches before I got something I could work with.
Also I felt it a good opportunity to use one of Faestock's photos. :iconfaestock:
Something I've been wanting to do as well. So now it's a guardian dragon.

Fae n the dragon by parmentides The girl's reflective gaze and the dragon's gentle spirit make for a lovely representation of friendship and security. ( Suggested by lovelessdevotions and Featured by ArtByCher )

Aaawww this reminds me of that book about the half elf girl that runs away from slavery to be adopted by a momma dragon and her tribe. One of the covers was of her and her adopted sibling. This reminds me greatly of that.

Oh no, I wasn't suggesting you knew of it or had used it for inspiration or anything. That's an old book. I was just trying to explain the spirit I felt in this piece. :)

You remember who wrote it?
Reply
:iconomnivoyance:
Omnivoyance Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2014
Sure I remember.

It was co-authored by Andre Norton and Mercedes Lackey. but one of them died throwing the last book in the series into limbo. Here is the wikipedia page: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Half…   and here is the first cover art: www.sffaudio.com/images11/BRIL…  

Sorry, I would have said sooner but I misinterpreted your first reply and didn't see that you were interested. Too bad its a series that will probably never end. :(

Elvenbane the first book in the old ill fated The Halfblood Chronicles (co-author died before the last book was completed placing the series in limbo... )  en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Half…  

And here is a painting of the Elvenbane and her dragon bro which this piece made me think of:  www.sffaudio.com/images11/BRIL…   and no I'm not saying they are all that much alike it just reminded me of the series is all.

This is a truly wonderful piece. The lovely lady in red looks pensive and maybe a touch sad, and the rough and even somewhat ugly dragon manages to look gentle and protective. What a lovely contrast between the two that just works! Congrats on the DD!

If a dragon wants to be your friend or share your pain, that's got to be such a wonderful feeling. That's so well portrayed here. :)
