Daily Deviation

Given 2016-04-01
Suitably epic in composition and detail, The birth of a myth by Lelek1980 is a stunning representation of the fabled hero's deed.  ( Suggested by OnkelAdri and Featured by lovelessdevotions )

Зигфрид прикончил Фафнира? Жёстко... но очень аутентично с т. з. древних нордических нравов.

Awesome! And I just want to say, this makes me think of Beowulf (the book version, not the movie). Really well done, either way.

Grats on the DD! :hug:
Gruesone yet not disturbing. (at least for me since there isn't any dramatic rendition of unrealistic amount of blood spurting everywhere along with bits of guts that is so overdone for me in movies) XD
Oops I rambled too much.

Is it Siegfried ??

:iconalexeyrudikov:
AlexeyRudikov Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
Oh, it's the collective or better initial image of dragon slayer. Beowulf, Siegfried, St. George (shield as a nimbus), Indra, Thor are just different interpretations of that deed.

It's Beowulf, actually. What gives it away is the blood on his neck and the fact that he stabbed the dragon in the flank. ;)

Oh yes! Poor dragon. It was maybe the last piece of the age of myphos, the last legendary creature!
I've tried to show by this realistic guts and blood, that it was real.

That is one awesome idea! To show that it was a real dragon, and not just a fake one made out of cloth.

Have you ever read the Valley of the Worm? Heroes never die, they slumber til they're born again in new bodies in long and distant ages

No, I haven't read. But it reminds me about Moorcock's conception of The Eternal Champion.

WOW Best Sigurd art ever! Just a shame we cant see the dragon's face.
But the characters are more than enough!

We don't need a head, it's in the past symbolically.
And the dragon is almost mythical creature, so then I have to leave him incomplete for some feeling of mystery.

I'm sorry to ask this here, but... I've seen a lot of comments saying that the site used to be much better. I'm new to DA, so I must ask: what's wrong with it? Or, what used to be better? Some people are outrageously looking for attention, but the rest of the community seems pretty nice :-) Or is it about the way the website is built?
I don't mean to be unpleasant, I'm genuinely curious (and a bit concerned ^^).
