The Simple Things by Nambroth The Simple Things by Nambroth
A Valentine's gift for my husband!

This was unabashedly inspired by the beautiful scenery of Skyrim. No such area exists in the game itself, but the coast that gave me the idea is just north of Dawnstar.
Don't worry; the little firebird is quite lightweight and she's only sitting there for a moment.

Corel Painter: Arylic brushes with a little Oil Pastel.

The bird is perched on the dragon's horn. It seems like as good a place as any!

Nothing less than beautiful, even gorgeous I would say! I think, though, but it is only my opinion, that the griffon/dragon could be a little more blended with it's surroundings or the cliff it is on could have more contrasting shadows, I don't know which is better, really.

Otherwise it is a great valentine's gift, beautiful atmosphere and the warm colors, the amazing sky, it gives the feeling of coziness, calm, safety of love. Your husband is very lucky <3

I think this is better than the Skyrim landscapes ad it is very bright as well in this sunset scene. I like the dragon and the bird here, as is you said this is for your hubby so I would guess the dragon represents him, and the bird yourself, the snow in its way just glistens in this image also I feel. It is a very nice warm image well done. :)
