Arcarija - the fire of black sun by Gewalgon Arcarija - the fire of black sun by Gewalgon
Wing divider BLACK (left) by Gewalgon:iconredheart-plz:Wing divider BLACK (right) by Gewalgon


I'm the fire which blazes deep inside you,
Your temperament, your courage, your driving force,
I'm the black Love, the pure passion,
the one who protects you, keeps your soul.
:iconburningredplz: I'm the fire of night! :iconburningredplz:


Ehh... well, maybe you can already guess or feel...
But let's say I was just a little little little bit angry today? [*Iron mood of*]
Those are the epic rare moments where Alvrericjas change her balanced form into one single form...
The fire burned trough my whole body, I just thought I would explode at any moment.
Okay, it's a new side of me you get to see here, but no worries, the fluffy white dragon is already back in her center... ;-)

Please don't ask my why I was angry, it's nothing I need to share (I couldn't even explain all those things in english), and it's not nescessary to talk about it, because it's already solved.
I just wanted to express my feelings & it was time to draw Arcarija anyway :la:
And since she's my dark side, I had just the perfect mood to draw her... *evil laugh* :D

Love ya! :D:heart:

I really enjoy looking at this piece of work. It is very appealing to the eye. I love how the contrast is evenly distributed throughout the picture with the white color on black paper. Also, the black sun in the background is very unique and most definitely portrays fire in the night, with the sun giving off fire as the light, but the sun itself is black to portray the darkness of the night. Also, the bird giving off what seems to be it's own red light, or glow, is very thought-intriguing and made me think of a lighthouse in a storm, guiding the sailors, only this glow seems to be guiding someone or something to it for some reason. That reason is a mystery to me as of now, but one I will enjoy thinking about for a long while. In addition, the eyes on the tail, though they may only be decor, are a great detail that was added. It feels as though even if the bird is not directly looking at you, it will be watching your every move. Which, in turn, creates a sense of eeriness. Not to say this piece is scary, I actually think it quiet elegant and regal by the posture and how the bird holds it head high to show it will not bow and will stay strong through all. I believe the one and only thing I can think of that might come across as negativity would be the pose the bird is in and the view of the bird. It is not bad, for the artist has successfully drawn a realistic-looking bird, but I have seen birds in this position before. Saying that, I also know from experience it can be both challenging and boring to create a bird's position mostly because so many people have drawn so many different bird positions. All in all, it is a very nice piece, both intriguing and inspiring, and the author has done a great job in creating a fantastic work of art!

Fire. This is what I see and is so elegantly imbued into this. The simple flow of the tail feathers falling and curling emphasize Arcarija's passioned state, moving almost fluidly and striking, as one would in the heat of anger. Arcarija's wings are spread what seems to be in a manner of preparation before an attack... I can feel the fire of anger through the colours and the stance, and the ways that the lines are drawn. The burning sun brings a powerful balance into the piece as Ararija rises before it, as if it was fueling her passion. Wonderful display of this character, with her wings fully expanded, nearly curling around the black sun.

Indeed anger is not to be trifled with but we must understand it is a part of us and IT'S NOT EVIL! Like you have described it is drive. Energy that burns inside all of us and sometimes the flames just need to burn.

Wow, there really IS a lot of anger in this drawing. You must have been boiling inside to be able to make a drawing that radiates an atmosphere like that. Anyway, nice use of the colour red and well done on conveying your emotions. I'm happy the fluffy white dragon is in the centre again! 
Well done :heart:

Yepp I was. But at last it was positive that I was angry that much, it was a really good mood to draw my "Shadow-side" :-)

Thank you very much for your comment and for taking your time, it always means a lot to me from you! :heart:

Wow, das sieht wirklich so aus, als würde er glühen, sehr schön umgesetzt. Dachte zuerst du hättest es mit Pastellkreiden gezeichnet^^; aber mit Buntstiften sowas umzusetzen ist schon eine Glanzleistung, alle Achtung (ich sollte vielleicht auch mal versuchen auf schwarzem Papier zu zeichnen, noch nie ausprobiert Thinking... )

Oh ja, das solltest du wirklich einmal probieren, kann ich wirklich nur empfehlen!
Macht ne Menge Spaß! :D

A phoenix? It's cool to see how you don't have to add so many things to make a picture look really nice, it's simple but very effective!
Gewalgon Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes, Arcarija is a black phoenix :-)
Thank you very much!
