Protector of the Forest by AlectorFencer Protector of the Forest by AlectorFencer
He will protect the forest from despair and darkness.

:bulletgreen:Get this painting as a large print on matte-finished card! ~>> Protector of the Forest Print :bulletgreen:

This is Darkwing, a dragon character belonging to a commissioner of the same title. He wanted a charactersheet but when I read the description and what he means to do, protecting forests and being a general good soul, I couldn't resist painting this scene. :D
The stag embodies darkness, death and despair.

Here is a clearer design concept of the stag:



Thank you soo much for looking <3 :blowkiss:

This is the best piece of artwork I've ever seen. You'd usually think it's the other way around, where the stag protects the forest. This, where the dragon protects the forest, makes the painting stunning.
I love this picture, if I could, I would hang it up on a wall in my bedroom.

I like the turn on this, instead of the dragon being a terrifying monster, it is a protect against something that is normal considered good but turns out to be evil and in the end even though protecting, the dragon keeps its might.

You know; you actually switched the meanings most people think of when they view those animals... and I'm glad you did! ^^ Why can't dragons be the good guys?

Yay! The dragon is good! To many dragons are represented as evil or mindlessly savage which I frown upon greatly.
