Young Griff, The Mummer's Dragon by moonlitraven1
Young Griff, The Mummer's Dragon
Young Griff from A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin...referred to once as the mummer's dragon, which fits my theories about him :)
I have a lot of theories about Young Griff, which is why I decided to paint him, since he's my favorite character in the series to theorize about. I can't wait for the next book to come out so I can find out who he really is. Also, I know he has his hair dyed blue in A Dance With Dragons, but I thought he'd look better with his natural color. (SPOILERS MAYBE) I personally believe that he's actually one of the Blackfyre pretenders, not Aegon Targaryen the Sixth, but I think that HE believes he's Rhaegar's son.....we'll see. That's why, rather than painting him in front of the Targaryen or Blackfyre sigils, I decided to just make the background red and black, since those are the colors for both houses.
This is only my 3rd attempt at digital painting, so while it might not be that great, I'm pretty proud of it. I had a lot of fun with this one, experimenting with the different tools and seeing what worked and what didn't. Done with Corel Painter 12.
Also, since Young Griff hasn't been cast in the TV series (Game of Thrones) that I know of, I used a photo of Leo Legrand as a reference.
I would really appreciate feedback :)
Enchanted Forest by moonlitraven1
Enchanted Forest
A really quick thing painted using Corel Painter 12. I'm new to digital art, so I was experimenting for the most part. This was just something to have fun with. I thought the idea of an enchanted forest would be neat. 2 hours tops. I was going for a more rough, unfinished look in this one, since I'm usually a bit of a perfectionist.
Ocean Sunset by moonlitraven1
Ocean Sunset
I recently started dabbling in digital art, and this is the first painting using Corel Painter 12. There was a LOT of experimenting going on, and this was mostly just me trying to figure out what on earth I was doing. Still, I think it turned out rather well, as a first attempt.
Also, I realize now that I shouldn't have painted those mountains a solid black...oh whale.
I've been unactive for the most part for the past few months, aside from occasionally adding things to my favorites, due in large part to my school workload and general laziness. So. 
I haven't really uploaded ANY of the stuff I've made in the past...what, year? Year and a half? Which is sort of a shame, because I'm really proud of what I've managed to accomplish art-wise in that time frame. Most of those are acrylic paintings and animals done in chalk, things that are currently either chilling out in my art teacher's office or hanging on my wall. I would love to upload these, since I'm so proud of them - and my current gallery makes me cringe - so I've decided to re-double my efforts of finding my family's long-lost camera. Of course it'll have to be when I get them back from my art teacher.
Secondly, I finally scrounged up enough money to get a fairly decent tablet for myself, as well as a version of Corel, so I've been experimenting with that and trying to get the hang of it. Hopefully I'll come up with something fairly decent and upload it.
Thirdly, I've finally really dedicated myself to becoming an author, something my English teacher was ecstatic about. My goal has been to write at least 1,000 words every day that I'm not in school, and 2,500 during the week. I've stuck with this goal fairly well, and have about 25,000 words written as of now. It's wonderful what one can do when they set goals for themselves.
Lastly, I've been a bit busy reading The Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb, and re-reading A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin (which is even more fantastic the second time through). I was a bit skeptical about the Farseer books, but so far (I'm on book 2) I've quite enjoyed them, despite how I can't seem to really find...the plot in book 2. Maybe I'm missing something. It just seems to be about Fitz fucking his girlfriend, and then occasionally doing relevant things.

Welllllll I'm sort of a lame artist, because I haven't done anything artistic in a while ^^; oops. Anyway, I'm an "artist" who is currently busy catching up with her reading, school, and learning how to play various instruments. And by various I mean two. Heh. I also really need to update my gallery.... >.<
If you want to know anything about me, just ask. Don't worry about offending me, because you probably won't.
