You stand on my old friend by SpoonfishLee You stand on my old friend by SpoonfishLee
My Exposť 9 entry. I would like for this painting to tell a story on its own.

During the process of this painting, I've picked up a lot of new techniques and developed mentally as an artist, so look forward to better art from now on! :)

Edit: A DD! Thanks a bunch, everybody! <3 Thanks to :iconzolaida: for suggesting this piece and to :iconnorke: for featuring it! :) Also thanks for all the critique given by fans and friends during the process, it could not have been done without you <3 Aaand thanks for all the comments and favs. Unfortunately I cannot reply to all, but I am grateful nonetheless!

Edit #2: Oh wow, dA featured this one on the dA facebook page, thanks a lot :) I'm really glad that the painting that I've spent more time on than any other is still strong!

The suggester said: "Everything in You stand on my old friend by ~Simplicata is wonderfully detailed. The beautiful lightning and shading make it seem as if the painting comes alive. " ( Suggested by Zolaida and Featured by Norke )
Absolutely Brilliant!!

This is such a beautifully detailed painting. It's gorgeous; I especially love the way you painted the little glowing lights, and the dragon's eye. 
This is gorgeous.
How long did this take?
What a lovely brave little girl! And the dragon is amazing! I have add this to my favourite, set this as my desktop background, and pinned it here:… I can't find your full name, so I just write "You stand on my old friend [] by Lee, Sweden". Hope it is okay? ^^

I don't know if you know that but your art has been stolen! By a lot of wallpaper websites for example:…

Without any link of your deviantart or sometimes without your signature!

To have an idea of the measurement of this... thing, just search with google images.

Thanks for letting me know :)

It's not a huge problem to me, I'm just glad people enjoy it enough to rip it off, haha. I'll be okay as long as nobody makes a fortune of off my stuff :la:
