This reminds me of a story I ones read when I was a kid. It stars a princess who doesn't want to be you typical princess so she ran away and got herself a gig as a maid for a dragon. Knights from around the kingdom came to challenge the dragon but the princess practically told them to just go away and she likes it there. It was a good read.

Yes! Dealing with Dragons! One of my absolute favorite books when I was young. I was thinking exactly the same thing about this picture.

This is a very adorable piece. I love how the dragon's face is basically telling the knight to run lol.

Dear Ailah,
many years ago I've seen your painting and felt in love with it and never forgot it.
Now after all the years in Photoshop I'm learning a new medium and visiting an online school for 3d applications.
There I have to make homeworks of course. The most recent lesson was about pointing on something or somebody.
So came your pic back in my mind and I tried to translate your idea into the 3d world.
Please, don't be angry about me. It should not be copying, more a kind of flattering.
On all sites I post my image I link back to your original idea, which no one could better bring to life than you...
Here you can see if you like:
Thank you and please, go further with your lovely kind of art. It touches the hearts...

Vahldeer Featured By Owner Edited Mar 10, 2015
After having played so many games or read so many books that spawned endless tropes, I love it when I see something that mocks the mold so lightheartedly. In fact, I'd argue that the best ones become the new mold :P

Perhaps stuff like "How to Train Your Dragon" is the most recent example... or how about this illustration?

Well Mr. Knight is in a lot of hot water.  I think this princess was probably the President of the 'Dragon Protection Society' dedicated to the preservation of all things fire-breathing and deadly.  Thus was she's pretty miffed that Sir. Huntalot attacked her poor dragonly friend.

Beautifully hilarious work.  The dragon looks fairly worried.  The princess looks peeved enough to start a war of glove-slapping.  The Knight looks like he's not too sure what's going on.  Could he become something of an endangered species?
