You really nailed that they're "so ugly they're beautiful" aspect that's commented on at a few Impressions. Love the piece!

I never got a good feel for the hatching grounds until I came across your art. This is beyond fantastic.

I just love how the light is falling on the pair, and it makes the time last like forever.... <3

If this is the impression of Lessa and Ramoth, the mother is so old that she teleports Between immediately after this scene, never to return.  The scene is a rather bitter-sweet one, the dragons going from celebrating new life to mourning the loss of one of their own.

If you haven't read "Dragonflight" by Anne McCaffery I recommend it.

This is absolutely amazing and the very best Pern fanart I have ever seen, and I've been a Pern fan for about 15 years. WOW!
Is it Lessa and Ramoth? Because that's exactly what it looks like to me. Especially with the queen lying down in the background - that would be Nemorth...? :-)
*sigh* So, so beautiful. Thank you so much!

Is this the moment that Lessa impresses Ramoth?It looks just like what Anne McCaffrey describes in the book.

Based on the dead Queen in the background, I am guessing that this is Lessa Impressing Ramoth.

This is an absolutely beautiful atmospheric piece that really captures the spirit of the moment. Naturally, in a real Impression, there would be dozens of newly-hatched Dragons all around Impressing their new Riders. Of course, for every last one of them, they might as well be alone on the Sands too, because that is how personal and powerful the experience is.

It is amazing fun to look at this. The awkwardness of the baby, the other eggs and impression chaos going on below and the dragons watching from ledges above. Just exactly what we all are imagining. Thanks for this glimpse of it!

Looking great, although I thought that the mother vanished Between before the egg hatched.

Nemorth is the name of the queen who clutched Ramoth. Not Nermoth and not Namorth.

I never imagined a hatchling being that big though. o.o

Awesome image of Lessa with a ridged, nearly dead Namorth behind them. Though I don't think any hatchling, even Ramoth would be strong enough to stand on their hind legs immediately after hatching. Anyway, I really think this is pretty dang awesome!
