The Lizard's Lullaby by jerry8448 The Lizard's Lullaby by jerry8448
Full view please!

This started out as another addition to my ladder pictures (jerry8448.deviantart.com/art/T… and jerry8448.deviantart.com/art/T…, but then developed into something very different. My style has changed over the years anyway, so I doubt I could ever pull off anything like those two again.

I used screenshots of Salia from Zelda: Ocarina of Time as reference for the girl's pose. It was a last minute decision to add a character, but I really like the outcome. The picture just seemed a little too empty without.

Enjoy! :)

I really like the personal space you've created here.  It really engages me and makes me wonder where the different passages lead, and who uses them.  I'm naturally drawn to things like doors and passages and tunnels in real life, always wondering where they lead, so I guess that transfers to artwork as well!

I like your references and how you tied them together into your painting and you're style is unique, but I couldn't help noticing that the girl is hold the flute wrong. No offense, it's just that i would like to point that out as I play the flute. Traditionally her flute go on the other side, looking at different flutes and how people hand/play them is helpful ( commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fil… ) or ( www.musicisfun.ca/sax-flute-cl… *scroll down to the flute player*)

Yeah, I had no idea how those flutes are played and probably should have looked for reference pics...^^

Yes, it actually reminded me to Zelda because of the underground hideout scene. I'm sure those were devoid of ladders to go out as you added here :)

Wow, I never would have noticed your ladderphilia if you hadn't mentioned it. :) You draw so many bridges and portals and arches, etc., that most of your pictures are "places along the way" (not all though) to me.

 

The little elf is quite lovely, and apparently very contented to play her big friend to sleep. I'm surprised that it needs the bigger stump to live in, especially since the smaller one is way too small for her. Perhaps it's for a neighboring animal – or tomorrow's breakfast.

 

The girl is lovely and makes a nice eye-grabber to open with, though the rest of the magical burrow is quite awe-inspiring too. I like that it's part of a tunnel leading off to who-knows-where else, plus the extra holes and ways around the edges. The ray of sun lighting up the musician and her perch does a lovely job, plus it hits the lizard's tail just enough so that it stands out once we start to look around. The magical-looking phosphorescent mushrooms add a lot of mood lighting and even more wonder to the special hidden place. (Well, hidden except for the ladder sticking up, and perhaps that odd crane or whatever that seems to like ladders. ;))

 

Thanks for sharing another gorgeous piece.

Thanks. I always appreciate the time you put into your comments! I wouldn't call it ladderphilia though. I simply like stringing pictures together (like with my magic gateway series), so the ladder just seemed like a good means to an end ;)
