Interesting Picture
This is one that makes me stop and think a bit. Mostly, it evokes some strong feelings: Foreboding, disquieting.

Interesting reaction. Most everyone else has said to me "awww, how cute" but you and one other person had completely different reactions.

What about it gives the sense of foreboding or disquiet?

The look in the kid's eyes, methinks. The dragon looks "cute". The kid... ::shudder::

Neat-o pic, though :) I like it.

There's nothing wrong with her eyes. They're just very blue. I think 'shuddering' might be a bit of an overreaction though. :)

Re: Interesting Picture
The little girl looks wide-eyed and innocent. A dragon suggests evil to me. The girl seems to be looking over her shoulder as if she feels she's being followed or is looking at the dragon. Most children would be looking in the direction they are walking. Her mouth is closed and I'm not really sure how to interpret her expression.

I might be reading more into it than was intended. If you've seen the movie 'Con Air', there are a few scenes with a little girl, playing in her yard. Steve Buscemi plays Garland Greene, "The Marietta Mangler", one of the convicts. Greene sees the little girl and goes into her yard after hinting earlier that he's mentally sick, (Yeah I'm sick. ... There's no medicine for what I have.) It's one of those scenes where the girl isn't afraid, but you keep wondering why her mother isn't seeing what's happening.

Thanks! I had a lot of fun putting this one together. It took forever to get the dragon to sit on that wagon without going through it.
