Dragon: "Ah, welcome to my domain, brave hero! I see you have managed to get past the fire breathing piranhas in the river, the horrific ogre at the foot of the mountain, and you even found your way through the Valley of Mist. And now, your goal would be my treasure chamber, of course. Well, I'm afraid I can't let you through the gate that easily."
Hero: "Don't say it - I'll have to slay you to get past, right?"
Dragon: "Slay me? What a ridiculous thing to do. No, you just have to answer a question. Give me the correct answer, and I'll let you enter. I will not let you go anywhere until you succeed."
Hero: "Uhm, alright. What's the question then?"
Dragon: "The question is: What must you do to get to my treasure chamber?"
Hero: "Let's see... I must give you a rare stone that is only found somewhere far away, find you a damsel in distress, or I must kill the annoying dwarf that keeps bugging you every spring."
Dragon: "No, no and no. Come on, keep trying....."
Two weeks later, and one corpse richer, the dragon once again wondered why, just WHY couldn't any of them simply answer: "I must walk through the gate."???
Just a silly little story I came up with while drawing a typical fantasy scenario. I don't think dragons are evil, they just have different ways of entertaining themselves. Riddles are a very fun way to make time pass! ;)
I got a bunch of new pencils for Christmas, as well as drawing paper. This is drawn on ecological drawing paper, and it is rougher than what I'm used to. Detailing was a little difficult, but still very fun. :)
Medium: Pencils (3H, H, B, 3B, 6B)
Time: I believe it took about 15-20 hours.
Date: January 6, 2011. First picture this year!
