I've got you by DragonwolfRooke I've got you by DragonwolfRooke
Some artwork for Dragontry - also a phone background, for fun. It's an image I've had in my mind for a while now that I really needed to get down on paper. ...Figuratively, since it's digital. XD

There's something about protector characters. Y'know, the ones that are always there, for the most part - not the hero, but the hero's guide, the one who watches from afar but is always there to catch them. A not-tame lion, a grey wizard, a red dragon. I've always loved characters like that. And that's much of the relationship that is had between Farol and Rozali - he's her guardian angel, in many respects. Her rock and her comfort when the world seems dark and bleak.

In a way that makes this piece vent art...since with everything that's happened to me in the past month or so, it's been hard. I'm okay, mostly - healing takes time. But every once in a while you have a day where it just hits you...like a vacuum opened up in your chest. And you run to a room to be alone so you can cry.
But...whenever I have those moments, I know it'll be okay, even as I cry. There are dragons out there, who've got their arms around me, bearing me up, telling me "I've got you." I'll never have to go through this alone.
And neither will any of you.

And...it makes me hope that I can be that dragon to others someday. So that when they run and cry, I can be one to lift them up and comfort them and protect them. For now, I'm still in the midst of that fire...but I know it'll be okay.

That is such a beautiful sentiment. It's true. I've found it's true during my own hard times that there's always support. There's always someone who cares. And that's so important.

I hope the tough times fall behind you again, soon. You're a cool person and you deserve good things.

Thanks, they are. Little by little. Just some days are harder than others. But I'm doing better. :)

Well... I'd rather fox tails than being a dragon personally, but I'm happy to be there for you. Sincerely if you feel like talking I'm happy to help in any way I can.

Of course! Sorry it took me a long while to respond, but given I'm not unconscious I'm happy to talk. Is there anything I can help with at the current moment?
