The Love by krishnablacksky The Love by krishnablacksky
Inspiration came from my girlfriend's dreamland.

A blinded girl and a trapped dragon. It loved her, and even though the box allowed it close to no movements at all it willingly stayed captive in the box that locked it in just to stay by her.

Maybe, it's a mistake.

Insane. So much work even if it did come second nature to you. Incredible.

Somehow this reminds me of a game...

Amazing. Love the idea. Great work with the colours and shading. I love the composition as well. Nice job! :)

I completely agree with D-Yami, this piece brilliantly represents that...but let her go, dear dragon, break free and stretch your wings... reminds me of a bad girlfriend/boyfriend. How the victim may claim they must stay with their other because they love them, even though they are being abused. Ah, each person shall see this differently. This is very good! :heart:

This is really beautiful, and sad in a way. Love will do strange things to people, even turning them into slaves... this is a wonderful illustration of that. :)

the idea is shokingly brilliant :D
melodysilver Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2007
Simply breathtaking... I can understand the dragon - the things we do for love!

Must :+fav:

when a beast can be tamed by love,
it means it was never evil.
simply misunderstood.
sick concept!
melodysilver Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2007
Your comment made me melt as much as the art! :heart:

oaksong Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2006
I think one thing that makes this unusual and quite lovely is the ornate scroll work of the cage itself. It's not your average dragon trap. :)
krishnablacksky Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2005

Man, Ive seen more deviants in here with potentials to make illustrations for Tolkien or something else crazy! How are you cable of doing these painted pieces??
keelorenz Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2005
haha i love the rare occasion you see something genuinely creative on deviant art. great gallery and great technique.
crimsonmegatron Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2005
It does remind you of a dream.
I think I sympathize with this dragon. Being caged is not as bad as being separated from love.
Wonderful styling and illustration, as always. :]

FreekishlyTwiztd Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2005
A really amazing piece! I love the amount of detail you've put into this. :+fav:

hannah-banana Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2005
This is so well done. I feel sorry for the dragon whom for his love he remains caged in. :clap: wonderfully done
ErebusRed Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2005
Every now and then theres a picture in my Devwatch that is more that just beautiful - its highly original and stirs my imagination. This week it was yours.
nightzdragonz Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2005
the perspective seems a bit off on the cage, along with the room itself...but the actual rendering is just gorgeous - excellent use of color and contrast :)

NeverReallyHere Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2005
wow <3 that's absolutely gorgeous! The painting job is amazing and just ;; the story~! Everything about this picture is amazing, the structure and the scenery and just I can't even imagine being able to take that out of a picture in my head and creating it visually, it's just amazing. God I'm so jealous : '( you can even imagine the tension between them or whatever just by looking at it.

(0_0) I love how you did the Cathedral and the hooded statues (besides the uber dragon offcourse) :p
MysticFaerie Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2005
beautiful work. i can't get over how well you paint :)
Sympho Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2005
Great painting, i love the concept. ++ Cyrille :)
Silveraxe Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
This is very beautiful. The statues in the front, holding the sword, are very interesting; usually those kind of hooded figures have dark faces, but you have done them as if there's a light source inside their hoods. Very unique...

I love the cage and the coloring of the enviroment. The girl, in my opinion, is not as good done as the rest of the picture, so she kinda sticks out. But all over its very impressive!
yuppy64 Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2005
This is a wonderful piece, fanfreaking tastic work on the whole thing.
Sorry I can't justify it's awesomeness,
oICEMANo Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2005  Professional General Artist
Very cool!
Lucinda3 Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2005
wow... just *wow* oO
I love everything! The theme, the architecture of the building, the curls on the cage, the light...
Near-flawless I'd say

Great job! :D /applaud
