Dragon that ate the moon + short story by AlviaAlcedo Dragon that ate the moon + short story by AlviaAlcedo
-"What will be, if I ate the moon from the sky?"-the young dragon asked.-"It looks so delightful!"
"Then",- after a moment of silence, the old dragon full of wisdom answered,- "you must shine instead of the moon. It is one of the eternal rules of life. If you take something important, you must give something in return."
The old one looked at the younger one with a gentle smile: "You will understand it later.. It's the wrong way - to think just about yourself, especially if you're strong enough to think about others."


Let's be strong enough to think about each other :hug:

My mother told me, that I can write a fairy stories for children books^^'
Please, note me, if you find mistakes in this short story- my English is not the best, and I can't improve it without your help :heart:


Materials used: tempera, acrylics on a cardboard



Art me :iconalviaalcedo:

you have a very intresting projection on artery from your mind. this reminds me of somthing I would oddly call pitch black snow, mostly because of the value in this great painting you've done. the story you wrote with this pains quite the picture as well. I like this painting an I would enjoy seeing this hung up somewhere.

Oooh! Sounds like a very unique story... I would buy those fairy tales for my kids if I had any. The art really depicts the idea awesomely! :D Great contrasting of light and dark to go with story. :)

"The old dragon full of wisdom" should be "The old wise dragon." technically what you wrote is correct but its more like, text book english, not how anyone talks.
Cute story, great art ^.^

your english is fine, it's poetic this way! one of the wonderful things about reading translations is all the words are switched around from their usual places, makes you think about them harder.

There's a Persian story about a dragon who ate the sun and the moon. It sneaked into the world of the gods and drank a vile of immortality. When it ate the moon, they could not kill the dragon. So apparently whenever there was an eclipse it was because of the dragon.

(I didn't add every detail of the story but this reminded me of it. I love the picture~!)

;-; So beautiful...even the short story, just...I love wise dragons. I love fierce, evil dragons too but I have a soft spot for the wiser ones.

Such a simple picture but expressing so much. A masterpiece indeed.
