Power of Nature by Gewalgon Power of Nature by Gewalgon
See the endless power of the nature,
stronger than the humans,
the true beauty of this world
& she will never die....

I want to show a wonderful comment of CMD-Keen that fits to this picture and its message:

"Mother Nature is benevolent. After all, she is your mother; guiding you through hundreds of millions of years of evolution with love and care, you are her chosen ones. Now that you have reached your maturity, she has given you the greatest present so far - a free, intelligent mind. You are her children, and she is proud of you.

Alas, you are growing too proud and self confident. In the past, you used to fear your mother and be thankful for her kindness, but your achievements made you see yourselves as superior to every other, including your poor mother. You wanted more, and you weren't afraid to take it by force.

Change your ways, humans. Stop hurting your mother and learn to respect her again, as even the most patient souls can get tired and without Mother Nature, there is no life, no future for you. She is not happy; don't try to discover the limits of her patience..."

This is beyond beautiful. I shared it and your friend's comment (with their name) on my Facebook because I felt it so powerfully. I feel the need strongly lately to move into a home, and learn to grow my own food, and commune with Nature again. Cities kill my soul. I must write, but I need solitude.

Wonderful work with the lineart and the coloring. It is so full of movement, even though the dragon looks to be standing still. Well done! Thank you for sharing! :love:

This is an amazing piece. The dragon looks quite angry, but still not hostile. Instead it really does remind me of a mother scolding her child. Great work there!
