I wanted a way to depict dragons as emotional, intelligent beings, rather than the cold, ruthless killers that they are too often depicted as in stories. For the longest time, I wondered how such a goal could be achieved. One day I found a bird with an injured wing, and I tried nursing it back to health, but it ended up dying. I remember how I felt when that happened, and as I drew this picture I had the same feeling. This dragon knows his friend is gone, he loved her, but there is nothing he could do, and he feels responsible. All he can do is hope that the faerie is in a better place.

Poor you, and poor dragon..what kind of bird was it?

:-) Brittany Elizabeth Kuppin replies: "it was a sparrow. Poor little thing... I guess all I could really do was make it comfortable in it's last days."

I've had some sad experiences with birds, too. *sigh*
I like this.... the greyscale looks very nice. Looks like it's raining or misty. And I like how there's not a whole lot going on besides the dragon, it gives it kind of a lonely feel.

:-) Brittany Elizabeth Kuppin replies: "Yeah,....that's kinda what I was going for. I hope others can at least see how I view dragons now....and, yes,...I made this one extra humanoid on purpose."

This account has since died due to the crash..

I had no way of proving who I truly was. So if you run across this (dead) account, keep in mind I will not, or can not respond.

So, come to my new account, if you wish to see my current art.
