Facing the Dragon by depingo Facing the Dragon by depingo
When I was a kid my father used to tell me the story of Siegfried as it is written in the Nibelungenlied. [link]
I've been wanting to do something based on that for the longest time!
... and I managed to finish before 2012, yay :3


Happy new year everyone!

This is truly incredible, friend! An excellent tribute to the story! ^^ I would be honored if you were to perhaps join the group I've sent this to, S.D.G.ART. I do believe that I speak for all of us there when I say that we really really would love to see some more of your fine artistic talent and abilities! Have a wonderful day, my friend. ^^
