Alvrericjas'/My Life journey by Gewalgon Alvrericjas'/My Life journey by Gewalgon
This time I am going to show you something really special and personal...
Can you guess it?
All those drawings are showing the same dragon you know as Alvrericjas today.

"Whaaat? Really!? She looked like that first!?"

That's "just" the way I imagined her a long time ago.
I started to draw and discover this inner sleeping dragon with ~9-11 years. (The first years I called it "Heiliges Monster" - that means in english "Holy monster", until I found the right name.)

Everytime I changed or made new experiences, Alv changed also. (Here you can see just a little overview of the changes and of the tons of drawings/sketches from ~12 years ago until today.)

Why did I upload it?
It's something I was planning to do already a long time ago, just was to busy or lazy to scan and upload this stuff.
Until someone asked me if my poweranimal ever "changed", so I thought it was the right time to upload it finally!
And since Alv found her way into many hearts of you I thought some of you could be also interested to see this.

I am really curious what you think about it. Was it a surprise like I guessed?



I'll move this piece to the scraps folder later.

Oh man it's not enough to favor this! I gotta save this just so I can look at it when ever I feel discourage about drawing.

Well, I drew since I could hold a pen in my hand, but I think in schooltime I started to draw much more...
With dragons I started in the age of 8-9 ~ (The first drawing on the deviation is from that age). And I'm actually 22 -

Wow, Alv changed so much! Somehow some of your older versions of her remind me of how I used to draw. What really surprises me is that she has a crystal with her right from the first drawing!
Reply
:icongewalgon:
Gewalgon Featured By Owner May 2, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
There are even some more crystals! :-)
I think I have a fullbody drawing of this "version" somewhere at my grandma's home... When I visit her next time I will take a look if I can find it and upload it :-)

Sehr schön. Was mir besonders gefällt, ist, dass man wirklich eine tolle Entwicklung deiner Talente hier sehen kann, und, dass man bei den ersten Zeichnungen erkennt, dass sie nicht perfekt sind, sondern wirklich von einem Kind gezeichnet worden sind. Nicht so wie manch anderer Künstler, der schon als Kind unglaublich zeichnen konnte. Hier ist die Verbesserung umso eindrucksvoller und lässt diese Zusammenfassung umso beeindruckender wirken. ^^

How did you learn to do so many arms? O.o And hands, the hands on my dragons take me forever, I would get so frustrated! xD

O.o They were the simplest thing xD They're Agumon-like hands/claws from Digimon... No details, no right anatomy... nothing special xD

If you like them this way, search for Agumon in google and use his claws as reference :D
Today I draw my claws/hands another way, but they still need some improvement

Well I knew that Alvri changed with you, but all those arms look unhandy D:
xD
Am I seeing it correct that you also wrote stories on the back of your drawings ^-^?
(I can already see you writing that when you were little :D : 'this dragon here, my dragon is the biiiiiigeeest' xD)
The start might have been a little rough, but look how polished that rock now is <3

:icongewalgon:
Gewalgon Featured By Owner May 1, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes, at that time I wrote a lot of stories :-) And there were even much more stories in my head :D

Haha xD
Yeah, sometimes I wrote something like that xD "He's the guardian/keeper of earth" x)
Oh... and I rescued the earth thousands of times in my mind...

When I was little I only daydreamed in-class because I was done with my work in 30 minutes :x
I didn't care to draw what I saw back then xD

Arme. Noch mehr Arme. Und Flügel. Warum nicht mehr als ein Flügelpaar? Weil wirs können.

Spaß beiseite, ich finde es super, dass du diesen Werdegang mit uns teilst. Besser gesagt, dieses Zurückfinden.
Das ist wirklich beeindruckend, mir fehlen die Worte. Ich finde es einfach nur toll! Mögest du Alvrericjas immer in deinem Herzen tragen. Und die Hoffnung in die Herzen derer bringen, die deine Bilder sehen.

Namaste ~
