Twilight Dragon

Share

Hello everyone, new painting here that I did which was inspired by the work of, and dedicated to, my friend http://writeralsoadragon.deviantart.com/! (Check out her stuff, it's cool!)

Had a real fun time with this one, I did it while I was away and only had sketchbook paper available to paint on. Surprisingly not as catastrophic as I had imagined.

The runes are written in elder futhark if anyone wants to translate them to see what they say ;)

Great work, I say, of course.

Linguistics as part of an aesthetic, it's interesting. Sadly I wonder if there is not something always, always, lost in every kind of translation - because, everything is an attempt at communication, in some form, or another.
It can be fun to try these translations sometimes, though. And I would wager the translation attempts, even if a bit is lost, is still worth trying. I bet there certainly must be something gained at some point. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elder_Futhark
