Silvia's Dragon by megamoth Silvia's Dragon by megamoth
Silvia is a friend of mine from Romania who loves myths and fairy tales. One of her favorite stories from her home country involves this dragon (who sometimes appears as a giant), usually seen carrying a mace. When he returns home from his travels abroad, he notifies his wife how soon he will arrive by throwing his mace the distance it takes him three days to cover on foot. This way, his wife will make sure his dinner is warm and his pillows are fluffed by the time he gets there.

Graphite on yupo.

Super! You had a lot of patience there! I wonder how many hours have you spent on it... :?

Thanks! :) I can't even remember how many hours it was... I had to squeeze in time to work on it among other things, so it took me a few months to get it done, with only a few hours every few days. My memory fails to give me a solid sum...

Thank you! I would probably add more to the background if I could, but the piece is already framed. Good spotting though, this piece could probably do with more clouds and majestic mountains :D

Thanks! The story sometimes is about a giant, rather than a dragon. I hear that in parts of Romania you can find souvenirs of the mace... which I wish I looked up before I drew this XD
