When I first started this new piece it didn't hit me until I started on the dragon, why would a fairy be so close to a dragon? As I kept working this story poped in my head.  I know I'm not the greatest story teller but I found it very intresting, I hope you like it.   Prints will be avalible soon. Natsumi was the beloved daughter of the fairy Emperor Takao. She was the most beautiful and her song would bring the nightingales to silence to hear her sing. Natsumi loved to explore beyond the fairy kingdom despite her fathers commands.  One day while she was out at her favorite waterfall she was herd by Tatsuya a samurai. He fell in love with her voice and fallowed it finding Natsumi singing to the koi in the river.  At first she was frightened of Tatsuya but as he spoke to her softly she fell in love with his spirit. They met several times at the waterfall till Natsumi father discovered her secret so angered was he that he set a trap for Tatsuya turning him into a dragon, knowing his daughters fear of dragons knew that she would never see Tatsuya again.  Natsumi when seeing Tatsuya as a dragon curled up on the riverbank froze in horror thinking this dragon had devoured her true love.  Tatsuya did not move or speak he looked at Natsumi and a tear rolled down his cheek. Seeing the tear Natsumi looked deep in his eyes and could again see his spirit over coming her fear she comforted Tatsuya and decided that they would have to travel to the dragon lands and see the Dragon emperor for help.  They would have to fight many obstacles including Natsumi’s fear to get to the dragon kingdom to learn from the Dragon emperor they would need to recover the pearl of wisdom to return Tatsuya to his human form.  They would face more trials before recovering the pearl and finally winning her fathers love and blessing. 0.5mm pencil on medium weight paper
