Breeding pic for Luz x Anarawd

Winter, Year 756 of the New Age
Ridgeback Range


:bulletwhite: Rp snippet:

Luz's belly churned as the great stag inched closer, his words doused in loathing. How could the Gods make a creature so cruel, and so conniving? The red doe knew there was no hope now. She held herself proudly where she stood on the frost-bitten ground, listening to the King's deep voice sing praise for a nation of criminals.

What good do these horrible things do? she wondered, Doesn't good always triumph over evil in the end? And even if these wretches do succeed in ruling, what then? What would they do? Kill everyone. . .torture them? To what end. . .and for what purpose?

Questions flooded Luz's head in way that made her dizzy trying to sort them out. Her gaze lowered to the withered grass underfoot. The fronds crept across the land in such a way that reminded the doe of the Blackwood fawnlings. Still, the terrible beast's words had hit a nerve. She wondered about the captured princess he spoke of, and in a way, his words echoed her thoughts. Why didn't Glenmore do anything? May Óganach spare us! We are no better than they, if we cannot summon the courage to help even our own kind in a time of crisis. . .

"I hope that my Gods and yours have mercy on you, King of Blackwood. I thank you though, for opening my eyes and revealing the ugliness in this world," Luz muttered, lowering her head in disappointment.

Whoah, this is fantastic! o_o :heart:
I LOVE the effect in this picture, by making the fawnlings really stand in focus but without stealing the beauty from the background! The creek, I don't know why, is really the cherry on top of the ice-cream, I really love that detail! :giggle:

:D Thank you! It was a last-minute detail when I was painting the background, but I feel like it actually helped make the picture more eye-catching :heart:

Give me your background drawing skills! D=
Very atmospheric picture, the background seems to be so simple but if you take a closer look there is so much to discover... like the river in the background, from the location I'd say it's the Ridgeback River, right?
I love how the fawnlings seem to be the only colorful thing in the picture. :heart: Very well done!

Thank you!!!

:D Yes it is! I didn't originally intend for it to be (since it was just background practice at first), but then after I added the fawnlings I was like 'OMG RIDGEBACK!'
