About the Lava Flower:

It's one of a kind, and only blooms at night, inside the cave of lava far far away. It's a flower that is composed of molten lava, nourished by the dense air and flames inside the cave. No one has witnessed its beauty as only stories are passed on through generations about the existence of this mystic flower.

She was the first of the Pyrovaranus breed -- a Race of half lizzard, half human creatures originated in the deep volcanoes. How she came to be was a mystery, just like the way she simply disappeared from the face of the planet.

Here she lay, savoring the sour memories with tear covered cheeks, wishing she could have done it all differently, wishing she could have been able to let go of her pride and let her feelings show through the apathetic side that she was only known as. She was at peace, she was happy to have met him..

He never knew what she had done to alter the wheel of fate, to give him another chance to live... In his memories only the once bitter, evil, half lizard, half human abomination that he was meant to slay stayed. Upon the graves of his soldiers he swore that he will not rest until he could bring the head of this creature as a gift to them. He searched and traveled, with an un-surpassing grudge as his only company... he never found her...

100 years have passed, and on this deserted ground a lava flower bloomed where she once lay at peace. It now bloomed with all its might, afraid to show anything else but its hot, burning passion...

Reminds me of the fire levels in any Nintendo game I ever played. Love it when scenic pics give me that kind of nostalgia.

Nice work.

I love the idea, and the image is very well done. I'm a bit embarassed to say it brings up memories of Molten Core, but ignore that this is a great piece.
