A Stirring Light by nilTrace A Stirring Light by nilTrace
Here's my latest personal piece.

The idea was to paint a formation of mountains/rocks that when viewed from a certain angle would resemble the form of a dragon that has come to rest upon the ground. It didn't turn out quite as prominent as i would have liked and you may or may not notice it.

Thanks for looking.

I love your work Alyn. I've gone through your whole gallery and it's given me so many great ideas for my writing - so thanks for all the inspiration!

P.S. I noticed the dragon form right away - before I read the text underneath the image.

Stunning Fantasy Painting, And The Dragon Skeleton Does Come Through. I Also Like The Flying Dragon Belching Out Fire On The Mountain Top Or Dragon Skeleton Back.

Looks great. Imo the dragon skull is very well recognizable.

Weird... the first random thought that entered my mind upon viewing this was Sean Bean screaming "FOR GONDOR!"

somewhat reminds me of The Hobbit...the moment when they were inside the mountain and the dragon was searching for them and found where they came in and blew fire :D

Yes I'm afraid that as clever as the dragon mountains are, I still needed them to be pointed out. I think this is for two reasons;
- The general form of the mountainscape is dull and darkened, no lighting playing across it. You could've got some of those oh-so-delicious blueish highlights dancing across its rims of significance.
- The first thing I thought when I saw this was "SKYRIIIIMMM!"

Beautiful as ever, nilTrace.

The painting is great but I didn't noticed what you where looking to achieve. Not until I read about it. Maybe if a ray of light illuminated the high edge of the mountain (the vertebrae of the dragon), could be a little more noticeable.

The town in the mountainside has a little bit too much 'Minas Tirith' feel to it, but a compelling image just the same.

I noticed the dragon form of the rocks. In fact, before I clicked on the thumbnail, I kind of thought it was a dragon. Very nice work. =D
