There Was a Time: Young Leigh by JayAxer There Was a Time: Young Leigh by JayAxer
Leigh, when she was a young child, looking into the distance from atop a mountain. Growing up on an isolated island with her kind she often wondered what was out there beyond the sea in the rest of the world. As she grew up curiosity and the desire for something more eventually led her off the island and into that world she was so fascinated with.

All done in Painter IX with the harnessed power of DEATH

cheers~

I was looking through your stuff, I've been a fan of yours since like 2000. I was like "I wish his old stuff was on here." Then I saw this and it made up for the lack of old school pictures.

Awesome.

Omg.Not your usual style, but as awesome. I like how the tiny Leigh seems even smaller thanks to the wonderful background.
To me, it would make a great RPG/MMORPG cover.

Every time I look at this, it gets more and more beautiful. One of my favorite works by you, the vastness compared to little Leigh is really sobering, yet it looks so exciting, like an open world.

As the people here said, great art, I really like how you draw the sky, very real, and kid-leight looks interesting the idea, I mean the natural idea of grow and become strong is that all the kids think. but this little Dragoness did it, just make me think.

RESUME: GOOD PIC ñ_ñ
