Love and Peace by KaiserFlames Love and Peace by KaiserFlames
Ahhhhhhh. This was... well... a treat! I haven't been commissioned for many full paintings, so getting to do one was quite fun and let me stretch my painting legs a bit.

This was for ~Rykaran of his dragon alter ego in a really cool environment with a REALLY HUGE tree.

As an aside, this place, according to the commissioner, is a place of peace, where all the creatures live together, so no, the dragon is not about to eat the deer. Hence, the title.

And, in case anyone was wondering. I hand-scaled that dragon a single scale at a time. Buuuuuhhhhhhhhhhh....

Also, I've been on a Trigun kick. :iconhappyvashplz: Love and peeeaaaace!

I really like the dragon, odd colouration, though.

Neat anatomy and very nice effect of light shining through wing membrane.

It's hardly to find words for this. It's more than just simply wonderful, more than just magnificent. There is magic in this Painting. It may be done digitally but it has the irresistible charm of a traditional one. ( i really love those )
The Tree in the Background, and the light behind it, also the light shining through the leaves, magnificent, wonderful, lovely.
The whole Picture seems to have such a deep inner warmth. You did a wonderful job with the roots. Like the position of me on the biggest one. But most I love the two little Roots in the left-lower corner which wreathing around the bigger one.
The Deer standing proud on the grassy ground, while the roe deer looks for her playing kid are adorable.
The flowers and this wonderful green grass i really love also.
The Wings, they look very realistic, the best wings i've ever seen. With this veins which are showed where the light hits the wings. I don't want to choose a "best" part because i can't but they would be surely one of candidates.
My face looks so happy, while i enjoy the unique atmosphere of this place.
It don't matters which part you looking at, everyone is a wonderful piece for itself. Making it to something which can hardly be described without insult the work. Just one little thing i am missing my fangs, which stick out of the maw a bit.

This painting may be payed with money, but it has turned into a priceless treasure. I really need to thank you, and I am so happy for the honor getting this Painting from you. My heart and Soul are bathed in delight while look at it. I thank you for the effort you'd put in this Painting. Not fast fast done something, but make something that is simply a unique, wonderful and unmissable Piece.

Something i would like to say to this Place:

This is a place of peace for all beings, so for plants as for animals. The Plants which live there may be lucky, but the "rules" only have validity for everything which is between the deepest and widest roots and leaves. In this area the plants need not to fear for animals eating them, but i relation to the whole Planet this Place is very small. The Energy of Life flows strong through the roots of World Tree and fills the air. You just need the will to feel it, but even when it's extraordinary strong there, you can feel it everywhere. (yes also on Earth) .
And the ones who would like to listen, can feels the trees voice in the energy this place has.

But more important is not the place as itself. It is to have respect for every being, and with every, i mean every. No Differences between Plants and Animals. We need to eat plants and/or Animals to live yes. But we can be thanks-fully with respect for that what we eat, or we can simply eat as is was ever death matter only. I'll chose the first option.

P.S.: Trigun is nice :)

This looks amazing, the colours and lighting are beautiful <3 Also I LOVE how you did the dragon's wing membranes, it actually looks like a real bat wing, like it could actually stretch and stuff. Strange as it seems, I've never seen an artist achieve that before...all the dragon art I've seen (and I've seen a lot) tends to just have a bunch of scribbles and textures slapped down to try and mimic some sort of skin surface, while completely disregarding any internal structures that may be present in something as complex as a bat wing. Anyway, rant over, great work X3

yes. And also those deers can't stay there forever. Earlier or Later they need to eat also and then they need to leave this Place.

I personally hunt for antelopes, oryxs, gazelles y other Animals living in steppes, jungles and savannas, because i live in the Jungle :) But i left the Jungle to fly to this Tree and sit awhile on its mighty roots and under its mighty leaves :3

Oh such a super job! The deer are very well done, and like an above poster I really love the face/neck and toes on the dragon.

I think that's the first time I've ever seen a green headed / red bodied dragon too!
