Calm Before the Storm

Author Comments

Rather then pursuing my original idea (and what seems to be the go to composition for this COTM) of a battle I decided on a different perspective. Rather than a dramatic action packed fight scene I chose to portray the the silence before the battle , the calm before the storm. When emotions are running crazy, and the hard sad truth of war truly settles on its soldiers. I think many entrants saw this theme and took it as a joke, which is understandable, however I chose instead to show that even if its dragons and kittens in battle it can be just as real. I attempted to demonstrate this with the fear in the kittens eyes and the smoke coming form the dragons nostrils showing his anger. I also attempted to draw attention to this by creating a monochromatic piece, drawing attention to details like the kitten's eyes while also eliminating distractions like the background. Thank you once again for this incredible opportunity and your consideration.
