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:

I love how you did this-not only is the style flawless, but most people depict dragons as the destroyers and stags as the protectors. The flip of this really adds style:) (Smile)

I don't know if anyone else has mentioned it, but the scales going up the front of the dragon's throat look like a fern frond! Very apt. :)

I hope you don't mind if I put up a deviation based on this. I'm working on it now.

At first glance I thought the stag was the protector.  I think it has to do with composition.  As viewer, I identified with the character that was closest to me layout-wise.  Otherwise, this is a pretty amazing image.  Very evocative :)
