Liron by Vattukatt Liron by Vattukatt
music adopt 2 by oukamiyoukai45

I felt I needed to draw him. Didn't want him to think he's been forgotten. ^^ I admit it'll take a while to get used to the design, I pretty much improvised on most of this, so it might be a little off ^^' But he's a truly gorgeous dragon. :heart: I enjoyed drawing him. :>

He's the first (and so far the only) adoptable I've ever bought. Got him from oukamiyoukai45.
It was such an interesting way to adopt, using a song of my choice as inspiration. His song is "What if the storm ends" by Snow Patrol. (it's one of my favorites) 
I named him Liron, it means "my song" or "my joy", I thought it would suit him. Before I only called him Storm, and I think some will keep using that nickname. It's alright tho. ^^

I'm not used to adopting tho. It's a little trickier to get to know him, since I didn't summon him myself. But I think it'll be alright if I give it some time.
I don't know very much about him yet, but he strikes me as a dream traveler, so maybe we could travel together through the nightlands. He has a very flowing, almost liquid feel to him when he moves, a bit like that of my cat totem or Semyon, so if I go with him, preferably on his back (or more like behind his head), I think he'll be like a river of light moving through the darkness. That's how I imagine it.
Not sure you can see what I mean. But if I ever get better at painting (and I plan to eventually) I might be able to paint it out and show you. An alternative would be to learn animation. :D

Been asking sis to make a sculpture of him too. Not sure I could ever afford it, but maybe if I drew 65 drawings for her we could trade (yes I think a sculpture by her equals 65 drawings, or more). I just really want to paint it with glow in the dark paint :D Like really really! Maybe I should learn to use supersculpy and try to sculpt him myself, but it wouldn't be as good as Escaron's thingsies!!! :stare:

Haha ja förr i världen tenderade de att vara något längre och utförligare men fortfarande lika menade c: du är jäkla bra på det du gör. Skulle vilja skulptera den där draken till dig. Har inga material bara och det är så dyrt att skicka med posten xD

Wow he's gorgeous :love: there's so much great detail in this drawing without it becoming indistinguishable - really great :clap: Liron seems so nice and so big! I want one *sob*

A glow in the dark sculpture of him would be so awesome :D I look forward to seeing more images of him :happybounce:

Thank you so much! :love: I've never been a dragon person, I think. So I would never think of creating a dragon OC on my own. But this guy's design is just incredible. And I noticed when I drew him that he seem to have all sorts of elements I really love to draw Oo (coincidence?) I could go all out with the swirls and the floatyness :D
Go summon one!! Do it! 8U

I can understand that, I'm not much of a dragon person myself, but still one like this would be nice as he really is lovely :heart:

I actually do have a dragon character, in Deep World ;P here have a snipped of my very rough first draft:
‘Still perhaps one of my own would add some amusement?’ The dragon’s voice was light and soft. Its long neck extended down. Caz backed away as the creatures hug head came close enough to swallow him whole. The stone eyes had a strange light behind them. ‘Yes, I would like one myself.’
Hehe - probably again doesn't make sense :D

Ok, I'll give it some thought ;)

He's different from those traditional dragons too. I think I'm just a little bit allergic to those wings of theirs... never been able to draw them well. ^^'

I'm kinda wondering what sort of thing it is they're referring to... Oo I can imagine this scene tho. I can see why Caz would back away from something as massive as that. For some reason the dragon has a silvery tone to it's scales but I don't really know why. Perhaps because of it's voice. It looks very regal and impressive tho.

I tried to think of a dragon for myself last night but I couldn't - it was like I was blocked :/ I do like dragons like Liron and Haku from Spirited Away (but who doesn't ) and Western dragons are also very cool, but I just do not have a desire to fly, and I think that blocks me ... my dragons look more like Caz, I know that makes them a bit unique or just "not right" :/ My mare, Deception is named after a racing dragon from the animation "Dragon Booster" which is more like the dragons I imagine.

Hmm lets see if I can explain this ... Caz is currently stuck in a place between worlds, and he is faced with he three companions of the gods, and the dragon, who is the companion of the Nameless god, is deciding if he would like to have one like Caz too:
‘Me? Well, I am the Natural and it did not seem that I should whelp a half-child but … now I think since I am tide to the world of Men more than the others are, that I should also put a piece into the game.’ ;P
I'd post this little snippet of the story on DA, like you do, if I thought anyone (besides you) would read it, but I know no one will, still I'll consider sharing it with you ,but it's likely not to make sense (and its so rough :ashamed: )

Hmm, yes the dragon could have a silver tone to his "scales" - at the moment he only animates the statues that are made of him, so he just looks like pale stone (no one is gonna use much effort or expensive materials for a statue of the Nameless One) but he could have maybe later is he is ever seen in his true form - Deep World is a NaNoWriMo draft novel so it has no details added yet, just the bones of the first "vomit" draft - as I call it. But regal and impressive - yes, but foreboding in a way, as most dragons are, but he is far kinder and less hostile then the demon companions.

Oh gosh I feel myself slipping into Deep World mode again - I guess its about time ...

I WANNA FLYYYYYYYYYYYYY. But I like Caz :meow: and I like those kind of dragons too ^^
And woah I've never ever seen Dragon Booster Oo I tried to find that dragon you named her after. Awww friendship :D www.dragon-city.org/Dragon_Tem… She seemed to have a lot going on tho. Taking various forms and stuff. O_o

Sneaky dragon... it's all games to them -,- I bet he doesn't stop to consider how much trouble it could cause.
Do you really think my stories make sense then? :D I post them anyway... not entirely sure why tho. Oo Oh well. But it's fun to write. But if you don't feel like it gives anything then don't do it. I can always wait ^^ 

Ohh I see. That's why his eyes are stone eyes. At first I thought that was just to describe the color or feel of his gaze. Yeah well I guess there's truth in that tho. They wouldn't put too much effort into it. (Doesn't it bother him? Or is he too superior to care for it much ^^)
I suppose dragons has to be, they've lived for so very long and seen so many things come and go. Seen all the changes of the world. Maybe I shouldn't blame them for wanting some fun and games... :/

Does this mean you will go back to writing it now??!

Well your welcome to fly, I am very happy to stay with my feet firmly planted on the ground ;)
Hmm, its spelt a little different in the show, but you found her ;P I wander if I watched Dragon Bbooster now if I'd still enjoy it, probably not, I just thought dragon racing was very cool, especially as each type of dragon had a strength and weakness, and the riders had to be cleaver how they used up their energy (and there was the ever present underling war threat) and the superhero part too :D
Hmm, I liked her as she was fast, and brave but also wilful and had to be handled properly or she'd rebel. As I remember it she had 3 forms - her normal one, when she got infected with black draconium (energy) and when her rider become the Shadow Booster. I have a little model of her and her rider Moordryd (Mordred) Payne ;P
Ok well here is the snippet from Deep World (kind of like a chapter - but I don't have chapters, it's devided into changing POV of the various characters in the story) I did not look at it so it's still in its vomit draft form, as I knew if I did, I would become to worried its terrible and not let you read it - sorry if it really is bad, but please don't shatter me to much and its a lot, so sorry for that too :ashamed: sta.sh/01sfirgyski0
Well actually its an alter to all three of the god's companions and not the gods themselves (sorry remembered wrong), so not that important either, so no fancy- fancy stone used. I think the Nameless One has excepted his role as the disregarded sibling ( the other two gods are very important), it kind of like he's always there, patiently waiting for you to notice him ...I hope I replied right here, feels like I went a different way to what you were talking about :/

Well I am certainly considering it

The design of the people scared me a little bit, but a lot of older shows tend to do that. Doesn't mean they're bad ^^
Yeah I read a little about her story and all her forms. And she also seem a bit like how you've described your horse, so it makes sense :D Awww that's awesome, a little model. Do you have it on display or is it hidden somewhere? :>
Ah yes, I've read books who has that. Some books doesn't seem to even need chapters but has it anyway - that usually confuses me a bit. Not that it's a big deal tho ^^
Yes I've read it now. And before I go on I just have to... 

(imagine me singing)
"Count me in, I’ll do anything you want
But isn’t it ironic?
The fates must be laughing
Your greatest enemy
Is the one who holds the key
What do you need from me?"


That song has been stuck in my head the whole day and this particular part of it replayed endlessly in my head while I was reading. And to those demons attitude it seemed someone had to raise their voice ^^ So there. I've let it out. Phew. 
It was nice to spend some actual time with Caz, hear his thoughts on things, follow his actions. (I feel like such a stalker xD) I liked the sound of him walking, for reasons I can't explain. I'm not even sure you mentioned anything like that but whenever he moved through that place the sound of his feet had an awesome sound. But it's just me being weird. I like the dragon better now. I see that I was a little off in how I saw him earlier. He seems like the most reasonable one. I would give him a nickname and remember him if I was alive in that world. But then again, I do not know who I would be or how I would've grown up, so I can't tell what I would believe in then. But yes, I support the thought of letting the dragon spawn something because it has to be someone wonderful and I need to see that person :eager: well in my dreams I guess ^^ hah. So this is how I've changed my opinion from reading the whole text instead of that smallish part you showed me earlier, because back then I said there should be no new halfbreeds in the world! I was a foolish human. ^^ I'm still not sure what's really going on, more than the fact that there will be fire soon, "I see fire!!!" (sorry, couldn't help it) And I fear a lot of people might die. People who were important to someone. 
I admit I like their "leave it to burn". It seemed so completely free from interest in what it would do all those lives. Godly beings have such nice attitude. Most of what they do is what matters from a universal point of view. They don't care about small things, even if it's a big deal to the small things themselves. :D But now I'm just rambling. ^^ Thank you for sharing with me. And stop worrying so much about it ^^ it's not really terrible. :heart:

Yeah it's a little difficult to get everything right. I struggled with the proportions quite a lot, but I suppose that he's always going to be a little different in my world to match my style. We all imagine differently, after all ^^ I'm sure you'll be able to draw Strom in time. He just needs to settle in your imaginary world first. :>

Yeah I made his head too small on the picture I did of him. I am going to try and just do maybe some portraits to start him off. I have quite of bit of story locked in my head for who and what he is - even if he is just a baby.
