Otherworldly Silence by mooncookie Otherworldly Silence by mooncookie
Commission done for

Her lovely white dragon Laguna.

Ah yay this was such a learning experience! I actually spent longer on it this I thought I would, but you know asian dragons tend to take much more time. I started off with the scales that I usually do then looked at it and it was absolute....uh eww. I then just sat to think about it and realized I wanted it more like a fish's scales, where you can see them but at the same time dissapear. Ok enough of my rambling on!

colored on Painter 9 and photoshop 7

Laguna definitely belongs to

Oh and for the love of cake! I never ask this but please FULL VIEW!

Thank you!! :3

"We're walking in the air
We're floating in the moonlight sky
The people far below are sleeping as we fly
Far across the world
The villages go by like dreams
The rivers and the hills
The forest and the streams"

...this is what immediately came to mind when I saw this :3

i love how his back end is fading in the dark and the light is all focused on his face and the more intense features of him.

Hey, you mind if I make a banner out of this or your picture "Iridescence"? Over all of the internet, those two are the closest pictures I have come to finding to my Dæmon character, Uyr. Credit to you if I you let me use them, of course.

He/she reminds me of a book I read when I was about 13. I don't remember the whole story, but it was about a boy who had some really bad stuff happen to him, and he would fade in and out of reality into another world of ice and cold. It ended up this Ice Dragon from another world was trying to sap all of his energy, and he had to fight it to regain control of his body.
This looks like a nicer dragon.

*o* It's so beautiful! The way she fades into the background her expression of lonelyness..It's just.. amazing. I'm at a loss for words here. You do amazing backgrounds also. I can't even describe how pretty this picture is.

jackal-god Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2006
Stunning, as usual :). You are the absolute master of translucency, and your dragons are always gorgeous. Ordinarily, I like to see artists branch out and try new things, but I honestly want you to keep drawing white dragons forever :heart:.
Raisaitsu Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2006
Wow, just plain beautiful! I love eastern dragons and the colour white also :heart:
It gives a soft feel to the picture ^^
Yazzy Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2006
SHEESH am I late or WHAT?? -_____-; :faint: But wow.....this is so NICE. I think the title fits it perfectly. It looks so calm and you can feel the silence. I really like how you made the head look small....and almost child-like. The snow must've been annoying for you to do, but never the less, it brought out such a pretty aura around the dragon. ^_^ I think my favorite part of this picture is the fading out from behind. It makes the sky look so vast from behind, and makes me feel like the dragin's a lot closer than I think. ^_^ Again I really love the way you make the flow of wiskers and how shiney they look. They sort of remind me of silver violin strings! :giggle: You did a great job of showing a pretty wintry scene without bringing attention away from the dragon. Anyway, I'm done blabbing now. ^_^ I must fav. Awesome job again!!! :clap:
Limeh Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2006   Digital Artist

Man this is awesome, I can hardly begin to describe. The scales you used looks really nice and I'm always impressed with how you can use one colr theme in a picute but still have them so distinguished and pretty. The lil trees are adorable and so incredible. I love her face, the ears, horns and eyes are just so... nice.. I don't even know how to say it all! It's just breathtaking as usual! Keep up the great work!
mooncookie Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2006
Haha oh dear the trees gave me a time! Really, I was like arg pine trees are evil! Then I kind of calmed down and said I wanted more painterly trees and they ended up looking way better with the background!

Thank you very much!!

OH wow it's beautiful!!! I especially love the fade out appearance!!! Gorgeous work!
mooncookie Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2006
Hehe yeah I have always wanted to do something with fading but never really needed it in any picture. Makes it seem more desolate.

Thank you! :3
mialythila Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2006
Yes yes it does, beautiful job :D
You are very welcome!
