Leap of Faith

(Mixed media on 30x40cm paper)

Born in daylight, grown up in moonlight.
A leap of faith. Dawn.
Sparks bursting into flames, a phoenix by her nature.
A free will. A diverse mind.
Airy merriment ahead.”

Drawing this work was partly a travel back to the roots, as it has been a while since I’ve used so many different medias in one work: Watercolors, colored pencils, copics, gouache, tempera, pencils and gel pen.
Nevertheless this artwork is dedicated to the future that will grow out of the present (not the past), a kind of reminder for myself to never forget a specific something, which is captured in this artwork.

  1. I notice the green on the crest and tail is gone, if I remind well those are the original colours no?

    I have the feeling she’s going to catch the sun with her feather to throw it x)

    The little black dragon piques my curiosity. I don’t recognise it, so I suppose it’s not another character (unless it’s a new one). Could be the specific something not to be forgotten, but I don’t think, as I imagine this thing is a more general concept, whose that dragons would be only a part.
    SO…could it represent something like sadness/bad mood, etc. which is enlightened by the phoenix (=by art)?

    “a free will” and a free wild =p XD

      Indeed! Her older design was with green parts. Though in the current version her eyes and magic are still green-golden. Fun fact: her very first version was entirely without green^^

      She might do that xD

      The dark Wyvern was not part of things I uploaded so far (there are things/artwork/sketches/… I only keep for myself ;D) – but its story goes a long way back (Kee’Asuriah also took its shape once in an older digital artwork; but the Wyvern itself has only appeared offline so far), so it’s not surprising you don’t recognize it^^. The Wyvern is part of the meaning of the “specific something”, but not really the way you think^^
      Also, notice how its wings are spread, like it’ll fly away any second.

          Obviously it is^^
          indeed xP

          1. Could be something you left behind you?

            Uh…ok, didn’t noticed. Why? (I can see reasons for Facebook, but for Skype it’s more nebulous somewhat

            No. But I won’t explain it or tell more about it^^

            In the end I was only writing with three people there, but with two I switched the place of our conversation to somewhere else lately. Then Skype didn’t really seem useful anymore. Also, I am trying to reduce the platforms/… I use for obvious reasons x)

          (nbtw.: in case you didn’t notice -> I’ve deleted Skype and have deactivated my FB acc~ in case of conversations: dA or mails are the options left x) Insta theoretically too, but I hate to write with my phone xD)

      I have the feeling you misinterpreted something here?
      not sure what you mean?
