What do you think is the story behind this image? It just sort of happened and doesn't have one, but I feel that it should. If any of the writers amongst you would like to suggest an idea it would be really interesting to hear what you come up with. Or if anyone has a better name than "water dragon" please let me know - I am afraid I am pretty useless at thinking of names for my paintings!
This was a commission, but the client just requested a female character in water with a fantasy theme, and you know me, any excuse to paint a dragon
Hope you like it
In this lifetime they had traded positions. She no longer had to be the subservient one, though she still felt somehow that he would end up with the most power.
In the end those thoughts were fleeting. A slow hiss reminded them of their original purpose. She paused only a moment longer than he did. But it was that moment that sealed their fate. That one second of hesitation that determined they would have to find each other once again in another life...
And it really should have a story behind it.
I would enjoy composing a story about it.
There are so many stories that could go along with this painting. She looks a bit like a priestess in a fantasy-type setting. So, maybe she was one of the handmaidens to an old, powerful dragon. However, that one eventually died, but not before crying a single tear (what she's standing in). From that tear, a new dragon was born.
I personally love this so much that when I saw it in a store, I had to get it!
I've always thought the story behind it was that the kingdoms were in danger and an Elven royal heard a rumor that their salvation was to be found in an underground cavern filled with water that used to be a temple. When she waded into the water, she saw something shining through and reached down for it to reveal a baby dragon! Of course she was surprised, but the dragon looks kinda smug like it's saying "that's right, I'm your salvation. Deal with it."
So a title would kind of be Surprise Savior... Watery Savior... Or something along those lines.
I was considering asking you if I could use this picture for my first book I'm writing. If I was able too I would write something like this:
A young water dragon made his way to the shore badly injured..... Shira showed the queen the dragon "Can you help him?" She asked. The queen of the Elves took up the young water dragon and walked toward the lake. The other elves gathered around in fascination wondering what she would do. She walked out into the lake nearly waste deep. With soft words she whispered in the Elven language. She whispered so soft that no one could hear what she said..... Suddenly the blue dragon burst from the water ten times his original size!
.He is is a stubborn mood so she is coaxing him to be a good boy
I can think of many other words to put in this sentence, but I think short and sweet states it all. Have a great day!
In terms of names, water dragon is straight to the point. I like the simplicity of it.
