On the wing by GlowingSpirit On the wing by GlowingSpirit
Finally! That's a break from commissions, I needed it. :)
Did you see the wings? THEY'RE PERFECT. <3
I learnt how to draw them realistic with a dragon statuine I have in my room. Sometimes little things are very helpful.~
Oh, and I used ~lienoe's texture here -> [link] Thank you so much! :heart:
This time I got inspired by this song: [link] I love Owl City <3

Owl city ~ On the wing
Breathe and Ill carry you
away into the velvet sky
And well stir the stars around
And watch them fall away
into the Hudson Bay
And plummet out of sight and sound
The open summer breeze
will sweep you through the hills
Where I live in the alpine heights
Below the Northern Lights,
I spend my coldest nights
Alone, awake and thinking of...
the weekend we were in love

Home among these mountain tops
can be so awfully dull
A thousand miles from the tide
But photos on the walls
of New York shopping malls
Distract me so I stay inside
I wish the rockets stayed over the promenade
Cuz I would make a hook and eye
And fish them from the sky,
my darling, she and I
Were hanging on so take us high
To sing the world goodbye:

I am floating away
Lost in a silent ballet
Im dreaming youre out in the blue
and I am right beside you
Awake to take in the view
Late nights and early parades
Still photos and noisy arcades
My darling, were both on the wing,
look down and keep on singing!
And we can go anywhere

Are you there?
Are you there, or are you just
a decoy dream in my head?
Am I home or am I simply tumbling all alone?

Hope you like it!
