Mini Story
As Kindle glides to the lake, memories of Lasair floods her mind. They are so strong that she feels like he's right there, touching her. Then she looks at her reflection, no one's there.

Artist's Comments
Well after 7 hours I got this in just in time to the contest's deadline. I was to paint Lasair and Kindle in a scene inspired by a song. Lasair is not a ghost Instead he's Kindle's memory. Below is the lyrics. Comments? Critique?

Inspired Song
Song: Stereo Love (snippet)
Artist: Edward Maya
Can I get to your soul?
Can you get to my thought?
Can we promise we won't let go?
All the things that I need
All the things that you need
You can make it feel so real.

I hate to see you cry
Your smile is a beautiful lie
I hate to see you cry
My love is dying inside
I hate to see you cry
Your smile is a beautiful lie
I hate to see you cry
My love is dying inside


Miscellaneous

Aa, I remember seing the video, but I am not sure that I saw it here.
In any case, this is very, very good. I really like the exstreme amount of details that you've put into this, and the "spirit" of Lasair is simply stunnig:wow:

Thanks for watching the video. And the intention is that he's a figment of her imagination, a memory basically.

Congratulations on winning, the detail in this is astounding. :) I like the concept of Lasair not being seen in the reflection.

Thank you :D. I imagined that it was appropriate for the viewer to see Lasair, but not in the water.

Yeah, I agree. :) Seeing Lasair only as a spirit type-of-thing has a lot of symbolism about the difference between Kindle's desires and reality.

I adore this piece; the trees and background have been drawn so accurately they look like a photograph and that moon is great. The shading is truly wonderful and this piece conveys a lot of emotion. It's easy to see why this nabbed first place. The ghostly effects on Lasair also look quite good and let the viewer know that he's a memory. However, I think the scales/texture on both Kindle and Lasair is a bit overdone and makes them look a slightly phony. Their wings look overly sparkly, like those of a My Little Pony. Also, Kindle's right front paw appears to be just floating in space. Wouldn't it be concealed by grass? Anyway, this looks fantastic overall, you did an amazing job. I look forward to more beautiful art from you in the future! :iconexcitedlaplz:

Thanks for this mini critique.

This is just one technique I use for scales. I figured this one fits the background the best. Here's my other scale styles [link] and [link] . I also have this other style that is still in development [link]
As you can see I have several ways I draw scales. So I can see what you mean about this style since its not perfect yet.

Her right paw does appear to be floating, good eye.

Oh and thank......(dies from seizure because of your icon)

I love this piece 8D The scales on Kindle are amazing, and the way Lasair smokes up in the sky is awesome. The water is so pretty and shiny, and the forest is beautiful!

I don't quite know where to start...XD
But I can tell that you made it like Lasair is really like a memory that's fading away or something, you blurred him at the right places where the smoke 'touches' him. Also the scales and other details are looking great again, the only thing that looks a bit weird is Lasair's wing that surrounds Kindle, it must be really flexible if it could do that :XD:;;; If you know what I mean.

But I like this piece you really put the feeling of the lost love. :meow: I love this one actually. :heart:
Great work! ^.^

Thanks for the mini critique. Yeah the wing does look weird. I was thinking the joints were hidden behind Kindle's neck but I guess that wasn't obvious enough.

Lost love. That's a great description of the emotion. Thanks again.
