Tell me a story by balorkin Tell me a story by balorkin
(my depiction of 1001 Night)

Sheherazade moved uncomfortably on her pillows. The splendid and golden ornated furniture of the room met the design and luxury of her shackles.

'Yes, Mylord!' She bowed her head. 'But would you.. would grant me one wish?'

The prince tilted his head to one side. His eyes didn't tell a thing of what was going on under his scales. His huge hood was decorated with the finest jewelry, but it still stared at her like the living death. She wondered if the eyes on the hood were just paintings or original markings. Like a birthright, maybe...

Then the prince nodded, slightly. She would have missed it if she'd blinked, and with a brush of his tail-tip, he brushed the shackles off.

'It's magick!' she thought and rubbed her wrists and ankles. 'And he didn't even need to hear me speak, he just knew from my thoughts and eyes what I was going to wish for...'

'So. Now that you are feeling more comfortable... tell me how the story goes on.'

Sheherazade sighed and nodded, then she shrieked and jumped a bit as the prince's huge body slithered underneath her and lifted her up, gently but oh so powerfull... she shivered in anxiety and anticipation, but still it made her break out in sweat and lick her lips... The gazing look of his eyes tranquilized her and made her underestimate the Prince. The smooth and vivid movement of his tongue was the only thing that made her aware, that this huge, massive, muscular thing was able to move as quickly as thunder and lightening.

She stared at him in amazement and tried to make herself comfortable on his body as his tail-tip brushed gently and faintly over her veil.

'Tell me, Sheherazade.' His voice was a powerfull whisper from his thorat, and speaking didn't cause him to open his mouth not to stop the movement of his tonuge. She nodded, gathering her strength, forced herself to smile while her heart was bumping and she was getting aroused.

'What is it that makes me tremble...' she thought. 'It isn't only fear, it's far more than that.'

And she rised her head but lowered her eyes and began to speak: 'Now, where did we stop yesterday, Mylord? Ah yes! At the oasis, right? So... '

And she told on and on the story how she had done for so many nights now. And she knew it wouldn't end this night, either. If the story would end, so would er life, decapitated in the yard of this palace, her pure blood decorating the blue pattern on the floor... So she went on and made up the story, trembling in fear but also feeling the heat of her heart and desires rising in her. Her well-shaped bottom rested on the cold skin of the prince's body... and she went on and on and on...

______________________________________________

Finally finished! *_* My brain and hands and arms are aching! But I am proud. ^_^

This should have been my entry for the cover art contest for this year's Eurofurence... but i was too slow and scared, and thus I wasn't able to finish it in time.
Now it is my last finished piece for the art show and I am really happy with it!

I love that Naga and I hate him... coloring his scales in every details cost more time than the whole other things in the image! +_+

Enjoy. ^_^

My goodness, those scales are so incredible, as is the golden jewelry and its lighting! Absolutely stellar. I used to work with colored pencils myself, so I can really appreciate the time and dedication this piece must have taken. Excellent work!

Oh deutsch... muahahaaaa. Verzeih... also ich bin begeistert. Das Gesamtwerk ist ja schon beeindruckend, aber dann noch all die kleinen Details zu durch wuseln... Ist nen Klasse Werk. Der Kobra-Naga hat's mir angetan mit all seinen goldenen Schmuck ;)
Und dies hier sehe ich erst jetzt?

Very beautiful. And, as has been said before, astoundingly detailed for this medium. The golden and coppery shading of the prince's scales and bands, the wintry aura-like shading of the night sky, the luxurious sweeping of the curtains and the warm glow of the candles - all eye-catching. There's no question that the naga is the centrepiece either. Brilliant. :)

Oh Hammer. Das ist nicht nur ein großartig gezeichnet Bild sondern auch toll komponiert. Ich denke, ich zeige dir den einzigen Naga, den ich je verbrochen habe, lieber nicht, da ich prompt dem einen Fehler gemacht habe, der in jeder Liste der "don't" ganz oben steht: ne Welle reingemalt :)
Ich werde mich mal weiter in deiner Galerie umsehen... Geil!

Ich weiß gar nicht, was ich dazu schreiben soll, was nicht schon geschrieben worden ist...außerdem bin ich immer sprachlos, wenn ich es ansehe ^^. Man sieht auf jeden Fall, wieviel Mühe du da rein gesteckt hast, es ist irre! Vor allem in den Naga, der so echt aussieht, aber auch Scheherazades Fellzeichnung, und der Schmuck und überhaupt Oo. Und...es erzählt eine Geschichte, ohne die Geschichte dazu, auch wenn die auch toll geschrieben ist :).

Vielen Dank. ^_^ Ich liebe dieses Bild abgöttisch und es ist aus Versehen verkauft worden. =_=* Weil ich dämlich war. *gnarf* Ich hätt es echt aus der Auktion holen sollen, als niemand geboten hatte... aber dann kam jemand in letzter Minute und hat es sich unter den NAgel gerissen für viel zu wenig Geld, wenn ich bedenke was da für ne Arbeit drin steckt. Ich vermisse das Bild schrecklich. >_< Normalerweise bin ich da nicht so... *seufzt* Aber bei dem hier... naja egal. :) That's life!

Wahnsinn.
Die Bildkomposition passt perfekt, und die Farben haben selbst auch das Thema drin. Und die vielen Details geben dem Bild sowieso den letzten Schliff. Passt auch zu dem orientalischen Stil..den ich zumindest auch detailreich in Erinnerung hab.
Ich finds interessant, dass du die zwei für sie und ihn gewählt hast. War das von Anfang an für dich klar, dass es die beiden Tierarten sein müssen?

Ich finds schade, dass dus nicht bis zu dem Contest geschafft hast. Ich denke, das hätt mich umgehauen wenn ich das dort gesehen hätte.
Aber sowas macht einen trotzdem stolz. Auch wenn man sich dafür den Arsch aufgerissen hat ~D
Nachher weiß man, wozu man doch fähig is.

Ja das stimmt schon. :) Tut nur weh, wenn's sich schlecht verkauft. =_=; War einfach zu wenig Geld... am liebsten hätte ich dem Käufer das Geld zurück gegeben und gesagt: Sorry, Pal, ich nehm es wieder an mich und hänge es mir selber auf... aber naja. Gut. Ging ja nicht. Vertrag ist Vertrag.

Hmmm und ich wollte natürlich eine Araberstute als Sheherazade haben und beim Sultan dachte ich an einen Drachen, aber ich wollte etwas orientalisches aber nicht asiatisch. Gut, die Kobra ist nun auch eher Indien als Arabien, aber Schlangen hat es in der Wüste jedenfalls. Und dann traf mich die Idee für das Bild am Kopf wie ein Stein und ich musste es machen... die Muse hat mich gezwungen. ^^;
