Mael my Lion XD by Destinyfall Mael my Lion XD by Destinyfall
FIRST... listen to this while looking at the picture XD!

[link]

thank you lady k for the idea!

Wellllllllllll Mael is a Leo as you know... what else could he be, right? And Mael... well... he is a leader, a father, a lover and warrior. When I think of him I think of him as a protector, a shield against the world, I suppose... he truly means a lot to me. He is as real to me as he could ever be but more in the sense of a figure to hold on to and rely on. He has never let me down, he makes me a better person, gives me strength to do what I need to do and inspiration to feed off of.

Its hard to explain... and I guess it really sounds crazy but... if it were possible to meet someone that wasn't physically there but... was there... Mael would be that person. Perhaps he is my darker side... perhaps he is an angel in my ear giving me ideas... Whatever he is though, I couldn't live without him XD

I honestly don't know if anyone has ever given tribute to their muse...aside from the Greeks XD But I give tribute and love to my faithful muse, who has never allowed me artist block or writer's block for that matter!!! Big mouth... XD


On a lighter note... this was an idea I have had for a long time, Mael and a Lion, side by side, both dark with bright blue eyes XD I am quite pleased with how it turned out XD


Mael belongs to me and the weekly story and... well anyone who loves him! XD

Beautiful! You might want to look into the Angel of Death, Samael. If anybody's a vampire king, he is. Just a thought.

I just have one critique on this pic. The lion's coat should be lighter in color then Mael's clothing shade or if he is wearing lion fur, the coloring should be lighter and more yellow for it to be a pride lord lion (or leader). Most pride lions alphas are light cream with a medium brown mane around the head (much like Mufasa in The Lion King).

Other then that, I think this is an amazing pic.

Well the whole idea what to have a black lion to match Mael... otherwise i certainly would have made him a golden color XD Thank you very much!

WAY too appropriate...I must agree with Lady K on this... :nod:

The polarity of a leo is Masculine/Positive -- known in the Chinese zodiac as Yang, the opposite of Ying, which is Feminine/Negative. There is much of Mael that suits this, up to and including the fact that the polarity has both its pros and cons. On one hand, we see the glorified protector and guardian...but on the other, we see the protector and guardian out of control and possessive almost to the point of violence. The fact that it takes him some effort to maintain the balance between the two makes him a very real, very human character...because it is something he still has to struggle with. It's one of the reasons he is so loved, because for all of his perfections, he's still very flawed... :hmm:

Even so, Arnold needs to move over -- the REAL Conan is here! :worship:

Amazing and beautiful! :love: And the music works perfectly with this, brilliant idea Lady K! :nod:

Mael is a great inspiration . . . gotta say, I'm glad he's around. Both for you and the rest of us :giggle:

Keep up the good work, both of you :w00t:
