The Truth by Nordeva The Truth by Nordeva
''The truth... our identity is in our heart although people know us for our appearance. This waterfall shows the true appearance which is found  in our heart.''

Here you go, a remake of one of my favourite old pictures: The truth... by Nordeva
I've always liked the idea so I've been planning to do its remake for a long time.

This drawing took 3 months to finish because of the illustration project that I'm working on, it's taking all my drawing time (you may have noticed it) ^^;
I just wanted to finish it before the end of the year!

Nothing else to say, just enjoy and I hope you like it! If you want to know more about the character please go here nordeva.deviantart.com/art/Mis…

She look quite... adorable and innocent. :) I admire your skill in drawing her in these more complicated angles and poses (as opposed to just a side-view), I imagine it has taken you years of practise. ;)
I love your soft shading style, the 'reflection theme' behind this picture, and the tail gently grazing against the water, too. ^^

If it is not an image of looking back at your true self, or how you feel. it is a reflection across the dimensional tide where on the other side the reverse is true. It looks like a waterfall divides them nut it is still where they are, very nice work. :)

Not only it shows how your style has changed but also how you improved it :D
That's some awesome drawing (or more like REdrawing) did here :D
Whole anatomy, details, everything look beautiful :D
Only one thing make me wonder. Why is she sad seeing her original form? Is it something connected with her past?

Anyway, again, great job, you've done an amazing piece of art :D

Yes, I had a whole story for her. Guardians are born alone, without any parents or friends, and learn to survive without help. That's why they're strong. 
Wherever Misty went, everyone would be so respectful and afraid of her because of her Guardian mark in her neck. She wanted to be treated like a normal dragon, so she hided her mark with a scarf and found a magic bracelet that inverted her colours so that no one recognized her. 
And she started a new life like that :)

Aa, so that's how it looks like.
Ouu...pretty hard life they have.

Hmmm...is there any danger if someone finds out her original form? Expect that everyone would know, who is she.
