I thought long about this concept but the final idea came to me right as I was going to sleep, a giant dragon skeleton
entwined in massive roots.

But what happened here?
Feel free to think up a backstory behind this place!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A twig snapped underneath my boot,
breaking the awed silence that had befallen me and my companion.

Emerging from the forest, the sight shook me to the core.
You grew up hearing about it, the great beast, its mouth open in its last roar of defiance that was now forever silence.
But nothing could have prepared me for the actual sight...
It stood as a reminder to us all, its shadow looming over the city below never letting the inhabitants forget of the time when our lands were ruled by mighty beasts. Yet we had won.

This thought I had the most trouble comprehending. The sheer size of the monster had to be seen to be believed, it's wingspan alone stretching as long as the cliff face behind it stood tall. How could one human have prevailed over such a beast?

But he had...

One lone man, a traveller to the common eye but deep within his veins, magic ran deep.
The last dragon had no hope, or that is how they tell the story. That the beast, although the oldest and last living dragon to terrorise the skies and lands below was no match for the spirits that bowed before the mage.
He had entombed it in the land that it had once ruled. Not dead just frozen.

I felt a shiver run through me as I looked up at the skull, at the holes that still seemed to hold eyes and a hidden power. Magic in the land had died out along ago.

If the beast was to awaken.... There was no hope.

I cannot describe to you how much this piece moves me. It's like nature is swallowing up her own creatures. Like perhaps long ago, when the dragons (dinosaurs) walked the earth, there was some catastrophe that caused the earth to decide she could no longer be home to such large and powerful creatures. But it would have pained her to give up her creations, to just kill them off. So she froze them, entombed (as your title suggests) in her own materials, in the roots of what would grow up around these beasts and take over the earth. This piece is superb! Very, very intriguing and very awe-inspiring. I'm so glad there are great artists out there like yourself! I don't have the patience to draw like this, but I very much enjoy viewing the work of others. Thank you for sharing this with the world! PS As soon as I get some extra cash, I'm gonna buy a print of this because it is just that good!!

Rainbows are flying out of my eyes. Sorry for the wackiness. I was on another deviant's page who said some good things about your art, including something about rainbows. Anyways I really like this pic. I've always loved dragons and it's always fun to find one re-imagined in a new way.
