seed by sandara seed by sandara
thank you all for all the Skyrim comments.
this is not Skyrim fanart, though the horse is based on Boris the mountain climbing, dragon-killing horse. :D

the story i had in my mind when i did this was :

the girl's sword is forged from the otherworldly metal of the alien seed, which is why it is glowing the same blue. now she has returned to it to...(i don't know) XD

I love the story and theme you put behind this, it makes me very curious to see more of what could happen here. :3
And well, I have a certain weakness for baroque horses with such a luscious, powerful build. :happybounce: 

and anything blue and glowy earns instant brownie points

Going to see what's there, with a sword tied to the flower...

it makes me think of the Seed from Phantasy Star Universe...

Every single one of your pictures has an amazing story behind it. That's like 50% of the reason why I love your art and the other 50% is the ridiculous level of talent in each of your pieces.

Phazon container?

Great picture! Indeed the story i get from it is... They are on a path to find the answer to a question that the answer can only be found at the source of the blue glow :)

Artwork like this i think needs no story as you can interpret one for yourself :D

You know, there needs to be more fantasy stories involving aliens. Like, what we mistake for magic is in fact alien technology or something.

I think I like the concept of magic and elves and dragons and dwarves and wizards and faeries more. But that's a cool idea!

Every picture doesn't need a big story, and I think this is just great. Simple and curious to leave more thoughts to the viewer.
I think it's very nicely done. It looks alien alike and her sword too looks with the glow. Though I think it could be more distinct that they have a connection. I love that there's a clear focus from the two to the thing. I can't be the only one to wonder what happens when she gets closer, am I? :)

catchaotica Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist figure out why she even has the stupid thing, and why it keeps calling her names but coming back to her. Oh mocking sword, why must you haunt her so? :P

Man, I need to keep practicing my digital painting. I like the texture you used for the rock/ground.
Sweartoad Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This whole scene is so evocative. It's great! I particularly like the design of the alien seed - it looks very foreign and cool :)

You could do a lot with that simple story prompt. :D

CalliScribbles Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012
It's pretty, whatever it is.
budleiser Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012
I think this has a better "feel" and more realistic use of colors than Seed 2. Some lighting, either in the clouds, rays of sunshine on the ground, or from the seed would help make this a more epic piece. There is some emanating from the seed but it's too dulled down and muted.
ReDelta88 Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
After looking at your second pic of it, I was stunned, not by the quality of the art, but by the possiblity of a great story. Would you mind if I write a short story about it? Of course I will give you credit. :D
sandara Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012
Sure! :) Go ahead! Please send me your link when you're done; I would love to read it and I will also link back to you!

Boris here, reminds me of the draft in my own story, except his tack is different.

As for the art in all. Its wonderful. :3

i love the crud out of this. and i need you to know that i'ts better than anything i can do right now. but the strap under the horses body has to be further forward otherwise they feel like they are being suffocated and you don't get as good a grip with the saddle.
sandara Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012
adjusted! thanks!

Awesome drawing and i don't know if ya ever played Final Fantasy X, but the alien seed you drew reminds me of the giant 'seed-like' things in FFX that turn into sin spawn

I would love to read the story. Is it somewhere where I can read it?
pandaarya Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
that is just the concept they had while they were drawing it, not an actual story. although it would be cool if it was.
TheHollowWolf Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2012  Student Digital Artist
O: You should draw captain nicholls and joey from war horse.
Martut Featured By Owner May 30, 2012  Student General Artist
That's actually a very interesting concept. Mixing Sci-Fi with Fantasy so that Fantasy people are experiencing Sci-Fi aliens and stuff... I actually really love the idea of it! You can bet I'm going to be thinking about this all day, now! Excellent work!! :D

I was thinking since I'm a half-norway redhead...."If I was a viking living in the harsh winter, this is me---with my awesome friesian horse I always wanted...."
