Dragon Tarot - Strength by alecan Dragon Tarot - Strength by alecan
So, another one. I think the little guy there is having quite the dilemma. Yes, he might be strong enough to avoid getting eaten, but then what? He can't jump out of the mouth either. XD So what do you guys think of his chances? ;)


Part of my Dragon Tarot Project, read more about it here: [link]
and see the finished cards here: [link]

Strength
Card number: 8
Rulership: Leo

Divinatory meaning
Upright - Courage. Self control. The virtue of Fortitude. The power of love. Control of passion against one's baser instincts. Determination. Generosity. Strength and power under control. Energy. Optimism. Generosity, resolve and reconciliation.


Ill Dignified or Reversed - Power wrongly used. Defeat. Lack of willpower. Feelings of inadequacy. Pessimism. Surrender to unworthy impulses. Tyranny. Concession. Inability to act.

there's no chance. He's going to get eaten, stabbed (by the teeth), or fall. Or all three

Considering that the dragon's tongue isn't getting squished down, and that in that position, the guy would slip instead of holding if he used that much strength, i'd think the dragon is just playing with the guy...

And very nice art-stuff!

hmmm. i was just wondering. since it's Dragon Tarot, shouldn't it portray the dragon's strength instead of the puny human's?

alecan Featured By Owner May 4, 2008
no, as long as it's a dragon in it. But being able to keep a dragons jaws apart must be quite some strenght and that is what I've been trying to portray here. since we all allready know dragons are strong it would feel unnessesary to have a dragon portray strenght, at least the way I see it.

I really like the Dragon emotion. It's like the Dragon has been fighting with the little guy fore some time and so the Dragon is all most in the point where the Dragon patience will reach the limit.
It's really good.
The coloring is grate too but I would have used more darker shadows. :aww:

And fore the poor little person he will be poisoned with the dragon slobber because it's poisonous fore the people it's not so poisonous that it will kill you quickly but it will kill you. =p =p

This scene reminds of Dragon Heart, when Bowen is stuck within Draco's mouth. Both are in a -deadly- position because if the dragon closes his mouth the knight gets killed, and the sword will go into the dragon's brain killing him as well.

A taste for human flesh... a dragon's dirty secret....

if he has a bottle of particularly strong vinegar, he might stand a chance of getting hurled out
(that is if vinegar agitates the little hangy thing at the back of a dragons throat)
For chinese demons, keep an onion under your pillow, for dragons? somthing that agitates them bad enough to spit you out, either that or marinate yourself in it if you live in a dragon area :XD:
