Desert Rose by BloodhoundOmega Desert Rose by BloodhoundOmega

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams that tie two hearts that will never die
And near the flames
The shadows play in the shape of the mans desire

This desert rose
Whose shadow bears the secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume that would torture you more than this

And now she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothings as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
The rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Whose shadow bears the secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume that would torture you more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of hidden hearts and souls
This desert flower
This rare perfurme is the sweet intoxication of love

Back then in 2004 when I held my huge Bloodhound contest I got so many entries which I all just loved to pieces. Yet there were some new Hounds created which I adored tatbit more than others.
:iconsabrekitty:'s Bloodhound Ny'mph was one of them. Maybe it was her charming youthfulness or the little beard, I am not sure... I just seem to have a nag for those desert puppies.

Anyway... time passed and many Hounds got forgotten again... and there come I. Ha! All stubborn I will dig them out again and present them proudly to you! ;D

So here you have Ny, watching the sunset in the desert from her little personal lookout. A swarm Twistbeaks chose to land on a dune nearby, showing that even the deserts are pulsing with life.


Anyway, I'd ask you not to critisze this piece for various reasons. I know it has its flaws. When I want my mistakes to be pointed out, I will upload the sketch of a piece or mention it in the finished product. ^_^

I remember the sketch of this and it was lovely then.

The particular warm browns/oranges etc you've used make this picture particuarly rich.

It's pretty funny actually, that the first thing that came to mind just after reading the title was that song. Then I scrolled down to read the description and, lo and behold, there's the lyrics. XD

Beautiful pic, by the way. <3

Bloodie, I have no good words to describe how much I love this. Suffice to say, your work gets better and better and better. The fur textures, the lighting, the silky-smooth transparency of the linens... just wow. Your art is always so beautiful and sensitive, it just blows me away. It's a joy to see it in my inbox. Keep up the amazing work. :heart:

Very pretty, I love the way you color. And a good song for the pic too. Did the song make you think of the drawing or did you draw this while slitining to it? =3<3~

Very nice colors. I like her flowing hair. :)

I must admit I'm curious. Is there a link to this old contest and the entries...? Other people came up with these characters, and you're going to draw each one...? :?

:iconbloodhoundomega:
BloodhoundOmega Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2007
No, not each one. ^^; Simply because there were over 30 Hounds created. This one just inspired me a lot lately.

Sadly I don't have a linkt that includes all the entries and sadly many have been deleted meanwhile.
