This is a redrawing of a picture I made on 02/01/14! Almost three years ago:
I'm so proud of the difference! I feel like I made a lot of progress in that time.
I love how the composition turned out - the dragon's making this nice figure 8 sorta shape, not to mention, the kid is actually UNDER her wing in this picture, which I totally didn't do last time, ahaaha! And the gargoyle actually looks like a dragon this time, too. ;w; That's a huge improvement, lol.
Same story as last time: the dragon gargoyle is the boy's mother, though he doesn't know it. When he feels lonely he rests beside it and takes comfort being near her. His adopted father locks him onto the roof when he misbehaves, and in this particular case, it happened to be snowing outside when he did, so the boy takes shelter beneath his mother's wings and waits out the storm until the next morning when his father will unlock the door so he can have breakfast and do his chores.
