I am the magic - that makes everything possible,
And I am the hope that never dies!"

Great contrast! And very well done compositionally! One thing though... Are his legs totally right?

Honestly, I just looked back at it. And it's just that the knees look too close. Just seems awkward... Thoughts?

Bor ich lieb die Bilder bei dir! Das sieht einfach klasse aus mit dem schwarzen Papier!
Vor allem die Flügel sind ja der Hammer! Du hast hier richtig schön die Schatten und die Lichtschatten hervorgebracht!
Der Mond sieht richtig glasig aus. Wie ein Glas, dass etwas dreckig ist.
Das der Mond auch noch etwas scheint ist nen guter Effekt.
Doch was ich eigenartig finde, sind die Klauen, vor allem die Vorderklauen. Das sieht so aus, als würde er so verbittert sein, aber irgendwie auch jemanden umarmen wollen. XD eine verbitterte Umarmung.
Der hält sie halt etwas verkrampft. Das will ich damit sagen. ^^ Aber es kann auch Absicht gewesen sein!

Ein echt tolles Bild *O*

Danke, freut mich dass es dir gefällt!
Ich habe die Arme absichtlich so gesetzt, er hält seine Arme dem Betrachter gegenüber offen und ist damit alles andere als verbittert ;)
Ich wüsste aber gern was genau bei dir die Interpretation mit "verbittert" ausgelöst hat, und wie du das meinst.

Okiro13 Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012
Bitteschön!

Mh ja weil er eben die Klauen so verkampft hält sieht das etwas verbittert aus. ^^ Das habe ich damit gemeint. XD Eigentlich nicht groß intepretiert.

Naja, eine Interpretation ist eine Art Deutung, die im Auge des jeweiligen Betrachters liegt. Und du hast den Krallen eine verbitterte Haltung zugeschrieben, weil sie deiner Meinung nach verkrampft aussehen. Und ich würde gern verstehen woran du das verkrampfte festmachst, bzw. was bei dir verkrampft mit verbittert zu tun hat?

:iconokiro13:
Okiro13 Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2012
Kann es sein, dass du verkrampft gar nicht kennst? Also das Wort, so wie ich es meine?
Verkrampft im diesem Sinne: Das man etwas etwas unhandlich hält. Und das nicht so sanft, sondern, wie als würdest du deine Fäuste ballen. Somit ist das zu vergleichen.
Der Drache schließt ja fast seine Klauen und das sah halt für mich so aus.

"Verbittert" und "Verkrampft" sind schon einmal von Grund aus zwei verschiedene Paar Stiefel.
Und ich habe nicht verstanden was du als "Verbittert" interpretiert hast. Denn mit verkrampft hat das schon mal gar nichts zu tun. Schlag es zum Not nach.

Mensch mit dir zu disktuieren ist eigenartig. O,o akzeptierst du keine Anschauermeinung?
Ganz einfach: Der Drache wirkt nun einmal so auf mich und das kannst du NICHT ändern, tut mir Leid. Das ist nun mal so und ich kann das selbst nicht ändern. Der Drache zeigt übrigens kaum Gesichtsausdruck und somit kommt kaum Gefühl rüber.
Verbittert? Das er vielleicht über ETWAS verbittert ist. Verkrampt interpretiere ich ganz einfach und dann folgt der nächste Gedanke, dass er vielleicht verbittert ist und die Haltung zustande kommt.
Ich kann doch auch nicht in deinen Kopf reinsehen und die Bedeutung dieses Bildes erahnen. Um ehrlich zu sein will ich das auch gar nicht. Meine Bilder haben auch eine tiefgründige Bedeutung für mich selbst und andere müssen die nicht haben.
Ich mein eher, dass du den Drachen so beschützerisch darstellen wolltest *auf die Überschrift deut* Für mich kam es einfach am anfang nicht so rüber. Ganz einfach. Auf Meinung von anderen herumzuhüpfen mag ich gar nicht tut mir leid. >,<

Es geht nicht darum dass ich deine Empfindung und deine Deutung nicht respektiere.
Ich respektiere sie.
Ich kann aber mit den zwei Begriffen, die du in den Raum geworfen hast, die auch noch völlig unterschiedlich sind, ohne deine Erklärung einfach nichts anfangen.

Hey, more German for me to try to learn! (Not that I ever really learn it, sadly. Never been good at learning languages...)

And this is definitely going into my Special album. The moon, the constant change~

And of course, this is very skilled work. You truly captured the essence...~

If you want to learn German, maybe you should join German websides. Since I am a member on deviantArt, I improved my english skills. It helps me really!

And your english is pretty good, considering it's the most illogical language in the history of languages.

There are a few errors, but it's understandable. I've seen some native english speakers who aren't even that!

((Some fixes, if you don't mind:
"really pleasure" should be "great pleasure"
"tought" should be "thought"))
