Valor and the White Flame by VertiEarth Valor and the White Flame by VertiEarth
“What is Valor and the White Flame? Is it facing the beast head on only armed with determination and will to procure victory? Some might say that it is being the one within millions to arise and defeat a darkness, whether it be physical or in another form. Or perhaps being a leader where no others would stand to helm our current journey to more bountiful and prosperous waters. I say that it is the little things in life that we can all achieve. The deeds of small acts that bring about an ease that calm and lighten like the summer sun. Knowing that you always have a choice whether you perceive life as a door that is opening or closing. If your doors are open do not water ideas of fear and look for what is wrong, it may enter without your awareness and grow. If you feel the light fading and storms thundering amongst your path, remember that you are a flame of your own. A flame which may burn endlessly if you allow it to be. This luminous fire within is what shapes our world, let it be heroic courage of the soul that does so.” - SJB

This is an amazing piece of art that clearly didn't get the attention that it deserved when it was submitted. Therefore, I submitted it for a Daily Deviation and I hope you get it. It's a great piece of art that's expertly done.

Great job.

I love the blue and green that you have added to this piece. It really balances the warm tones without it competing for attention. The blues, for me, are almost an industrial blue, and steel blues so they bring in a feeling of strength. My absolute favorite part is the eyes. The look of peaceful determination is enhanced with the whites in the eyes that to me represents the soul coming through. And a really nice touch to the overall picture is the whiskers and the white under the chin.
