The Gift of Forever

This illustration was done as a gift for two friends we’ve known from the local convention circuit for quite a while, who announced that they’ve gotten engaged! I was secretly approached by one to do a picture for them, and while it should include a dragon, an image of her green garnet engagement ring, a ladybug, and a shamrock, all other details were left up to me. In fact, even she didn’t know what it looked like until I met with them to present it!

Nearly everything in the image is symbolic in some way, from the dragon coiling into a distinctive infinity symbol, the arrangement of the ring, ladybug, and clover, the vines entwining it all together… I really love how this one turned out – and I’m happy to say, so did they!
