It’s Memorial Day, and I keep seeing really cool patriotic stuff on the blogs I read.
So I wanted to do a patriotic pic with a fantasy bent.
This is the pic so far. I’m still blocking in the colors and fiddling with the flag in the background. I don’t want it too detailed, or the griffin will look lousy on top of it.
The trouble is, showing any kind of patriotism over in the depths of DA seems like a good way to get flamed. Especially once I put the words on it.
Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
Which, of course, is the last verse of the Star Spangled Banner.
