They say there are dragons in space. Hidden in the darkest places in the galaxy, beings as old as the stars. They say they are born in nebulae and die as supernovae, and that the spationaut who catches their eyes will travel in space without fear, for the dragons will protect them. No one has ever seen one, and no one will, as they are made of legends and dreams. But sometimes, when gazing at the stars, one cannot help but feel the stars gaze back.
Kinda old illustration I made of a space dragon for my story. Spationauts have many myths and legends about space, but this is the most known one.
If anyone guessed "eared nightjar" you were correct. Threw in some tabby markings to make it a bit more interesting. Went a bit heavy on textures, but I definately didn't want this guy to seem flat. Shading... is still the bane of my existence when trying to make it kinda soft.
My brother's cat has been hangin out with me all day for some reason or another, and it's really sweet... even though she's usually the mean one of our three cats.
I love her, though. She's a little blob of darkness with eyes.
