Meet Kia by NovaBrush Meet Kia by NovaBrush
DO NOT COPY, TRACE, REDISTRIBUTE OR CLAIM THAT THIS DRAGONESS IS YOURS IN ANY WAY!! :X If you want to use her, please credit back to me as the artist. Besides, I have included an intricate water mark with my DA user name and my initials. ;)
-------
Everyone on DA have their OCs, so I thought why don't I upload one? This is Kia, my darling dragoness I made up accidentally. Lol! I also wanted to play around with perspective, so I challenged myself to see if I could get her wing to 'come out' at you. Looks like I'm successful. :) A majority of the time she very placid and happy, but if provoked... well...

She's an agile and excellent flyer (hence how she mastered her element), an average swimmer but quite slow on land. Air is the element she has mastered skillfully; she can breathe fire but it is weaker than most dragons.

Kia: "Hey! What do ya think you're doing?! I don't want to be weak!" *glares*
Moonlit: *Raises hands defensively* "You're not weak! It's just your fire isn't... as intense as others..."
Kia: *Snorts a puff of smoke irritably*
Moonlit: *mutters* "At least you can control the air with precision and with great force. With the help of other dragons who have mastered wind, you can create cyclones or tornadoes!"
Kia: *smiles*
Moonlit: *whispers to you* "I don't like the idea of characters being all mighty and perfectly powerful. It's more realistic to have some down-sides."

Media Used: Adobe Photoshop CS4 + PC Graphics Tablet
Time Taken: Approx. 5 hours

Kia is a wind dragoness known for her sarcasm, sense of blunt humor and short temper. She makes friends quite easily and is surprisingly polite; despite her tendency to be egotistical and highly self-defensive. When in battle she's aggressively intimidating but in actual combat she's not as tough as she makes herself to appear.

Thank you. I drew her on the third day I got my PC tablet, so I'm greatful for the timing. :D To be honest I drew her head accidentally and thought, 'Well, why not finish it?" :XD: And you can see the result now. Hehehe.

Yeah, when he uploaded my bday pressent, I was sick on the day. So as soon as I saw it I laughed :XD:, I was happy he decided to make me a bday pressie. :aww:

LOL, 'School Girl Crush'? :XD: Bet he feels all warm and fuzzy inside. :lol: Well, I guess it's better than a Freaky-Over-Obssessive-Rabid-Fangirl aye? =p

Haha yeah.

I never saw Kia as my dragon-sona, but I do identify with her lol. If anything, she's like me only more moody, egotistical, arrogant , upfront, assertive and opinionated. Lol.

im trying to work up the courage to start drawing dragons again, i havent done it since high school cause people (even my own parents) put so much negative criticism on my work, my father especially being the religious nutcase that he is, hated everything i tried to do. he said it was the influence of the devil and an abomination and he confiscated all my drawings and my books then and there.
the only person who ever showed any interest in my work was my grandmother "god rest her soul" being a retired schoolteacher she helped me with many things i thought were worthy of artistic (for lack of a better word) expression.

under her guidance i drew many pictures of dragons in various poses and postures and even threw in a few wizards for effect, granted they were nothing as spectacular as some of the simplest things ive seen on DA but they gave me a purpose and it was something i enjoyed, even though it was difficult at times to truly bring things into perspective enough to be interpreted brilliantly as i saw them in my minds eye i gave no second thought to the pursuit of this endeavor. However problems arose when i showed these to my father who was insistant on my pursuing a more "religious" attunement in life. i harbor no ill will to him in this because ive learned that there is a great deal of darkness in this world one must be carefull to ward against, and many "unclean" minds wandering this world seeking to corrupt innocent young souls to serve thier perverse compulsions.

long story short, i like dragons. its a shame so many people regard them as nothing but monsters and scourge of mankind, i prefer to think of them as guardians perhaps even another form of angel. but all speculation aside what do you think?

I agree with you, even if I am religious (Catholic) I don't regard dragons as evil creatures - or represent the devil. Just look at some of the Eastern cultures, dragons are considered as good luck or wise and poweful creatures. :D

It's a shame your father has been discouraging your dragon illustrations. :hug: I hope things work out for you soon.

aye thank you, he has mellowed out a great deal since i was a teenager. now the only thing keeping me from picking up where i left off is my own fear of inadiquacy<---spellcheck please.

i know it may be silly but im 28 years old and i still indulge in childish dragon fantasies. when i was a kid in grade school i used to regard dragons as monsters, but then one day i found a strange book titled "jeremy thatcher dragon hatcher" upon finishing it my entire perception of dragons changed. i became enthralled by the idea of dragons becoming friends with people and even wrote several short stories based around the novel series by anne mccaffrey dragonriders of pern, one such story even got me into a heap of trouble with my teachers because they thought i was plagiarising the original authors work, but later on i found out its ok to write what you want within the original authors universe as long as you dont try to claim rights over the story or try to sell it for money. Good times. uh oh i seem to be rattling on about my life story a bit. "bad dobby!" *picks up a broom handle and starts whacking himself upside the head*
