Red Star by anndr Red Star by anndr
commission for :iconsiriusstar76:

Background:

Dallán’s mother was murdered when he was thirteen and he never knew his father. He lived in the forest alone, surviving by using his gift with plants to grow food. Eventually he was taken in by an sorceress who helped him learn basic magic and gave him direction and purpose. In his later wanderings he came upon an ancient ruined city where he stayed and explored for a long time. One day at midsummer he bathed in the lake by which he lived, and fell asleep on its shore.

Darién, the goddess of the sun came to him as he slept. Darién had placed severe restrictions on Mendarién to limit his ability to interfere with their people. She thought Mendarién’s fathering of Dallán was merely another attempt by Mendarién to circumvent her laws by creating an avatar to do the things Mendarién was not allowed. Darién came to bind Dallán, or perhaps destroy him to punish Mendarién. However when she saw Dallán she realized that he had his own soul and purpose. She saw his potential as a free guardian of her children and decided instead to bless him with her power and enhance his natural magic. Dallán thought he was dreaming when she came to him and was more awed by her majesty than afraid. ©Siriusstar76

Thank you for that back story. Is it from a book I can read. Facinating story, really. Good conflicks and convolutions to it. I can't help but think of that painting, Val, or yours you did for someone else. Those to paintings could be woven into a story, too. I write short stories and love getting ideas for fine art like this. Thanks so much for the images.

:eyepopping: This looks familiar.. have you ever possibly been featured in an artbook of any kind? I don't know why, but I'm fairly certain I've either seen this in an art feature on the web, or maybe you, yourself, as an artist was featured somewhere and I had looked up your art in the past.. Either way, beautiful colors, lucky, lucky commissioner! My goodness! I wish I had at least an ounce of your admirable talent!

Brilliant color choice.
This piece really tells an interesting story, with or without the description (which is also fascinating, btw).

The thing I love most about my commissions from you is how you capture the essence of what is happening in the scene and the characters' personalities, and this one is no exception. Thanks again for another awesome artwork!

Beautiful illustration that really takes the viewer into another world. I love how the background is expressive without being overwhelming... pristine in a way that is real at the moments that nature truly inspires. It brings out the subject and enhances the story without taking away from the central characters. The tones used really make the man look "earthy" where you can almost feel his connection to nature and the woman look supreme, almost out of place in the world. It really all comes together with your kind excerpt in the description to explain the background. You are very talented in illustration and I'm sure your commissioner was quite pleased. Thank you both for sharing!
