Giftart for the awesome
This is an old sketch I've had in my sketchbook that I've returned to every now and again for the past few months. A few days ago I really got to doodlin' with it again, when *DragonCid
posted her peice, "Do Not Lose Hope". I suddenly got really inspired to finish the sketch and color it.
This is a scene I've had lodged in my head for a long, long time. Kindle and Baltimor grew up together as close friends. However when the teen years hit, Baltimor grew stronger feelings for her, but before he could admit to them, Kindle had chosen her mate, Lasair. (Scene - [link]
) Filled with jealousy, Baltimor attacked Lasair in a desperate hope to win Kindle's love. (Scene -[link]
) However, due to his blind rage, Baltimor lost the battle. That night, striken with pure, utter shame of his actions, he ran away from the dragon city.
Decades upon decades later, when Baltimor is an adult, he gathers his courage and returns. He awaits until Kindle is alone before he approaches her. I had written his apology speech, but I'm in the process of finding it >.>' Basically, he admit's his wrongs and promises to be there for her, not as a lover, but as a reliable friend.
I couldn't for the life of me find a title to fit this, so I decided to go along with "Umbrella", the name of the Rihana song about friendship.
Hope yall like!
ps - Baltimor is a rare breed of dragon known as a "Mountain Grunt" or "Rock Child", aka he's a rock dragon. He doesn't have a 'breath', although he can manipulate rock around him, his real strengths rely on his giant size (he's nearly double to size of Terrador) and the brute strength that comes with his bulk. A Rock Child also can live a lot longer than any other breed without the help of magic.
