Sleeping Guardian by velvetcat Sleeping Guardian by velvetcat
Can you spot the guardian? :meow:
I'd love to know how would you interpret this work.
Go ahead and tell me what's in that cave :eager:

I started this work couple of weeks ago, never thought I'll finish it, because I didn't like the way it turned out at first. But today I got back to it anyway and finished it.
hope you like it :heart:

Sleeping Guardian by ~velvetcat, intriguing concept painted in beautiful complementary colors. ( Suggested by Christa-Kinde and Featured by alicexz )

This reminds me of Lord of The Rings and Deltora Quest for some reason XD

My first thought about what's in the cave is an earth dragon guarding his hoard, hoping that an intelligent human might walk by one day, one who would be worth talking to and perhaps share stories with.

I think i interpret it like this: some travelers seeking a little shelter for the night during their trip to the mountain, light a fire to keep themselves warm. What they did not notice through the freezing hail and biting winds of the northern mountainscape is the sleeping guardian: a being of mystic nature made out of ice colder than the very place it was born in and harder than the finest metal. A guardian of a secret. A very ancient secret, that should not see the light of day...
And its about to awaken to eliminate any and all "threats"...

btw. incredibly lovely piece, snowy landscapes have a very special feel to them, wonderful
