Is the title from a Brayan Adams song? Or was it Robbie Williams?
Natsumi-Kasai123 Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
The song was written by Bryan Adams, Michael Kamen, and Robert John "Mutt" Lange. However, there have been many singers and artists around the world who have covered it.

It's so cute but I can't ignore the feeling that it's exactly the same idea as with mother wolf and her child I saw on pinterest...
QueenLilSis Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2016  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It's not an original idea. Many artists have used this theme. What is important is that the art is original.
miss-alchemist Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Art is original = idea is original too. You can't separate those things. In my opinion it's just a nice picture but definitely not something original/special. But who cares, on dA there is a group of artist that no matter they will do, they'd be promoted by administration anyway.
QueenLilSis Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2016  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Having an original idea is very hard to do. I mean, a mother protecting her child until death is a pretty common concept isn't it? The feelings of this picture as opposed to the one you shared are completely different. With the wolves, the mother is obviously in physical pain because she's been shot full of arrows, but as suggested by the quote, that kind of pain pales in comparison to the pain of losing your child, as the pup has been shot and killed in that picture, regardless of the mother's efforts to protect him.

In this picture, it has to do with the mythos surrounding constellations. If you'd seen more of this artist's work, you'd recognize the arrows in Ursa Major aren't random, they are arrows that are specifically linked to the zodiac constellations. So in this picture, it isn't just about a mother protecting her child, it's about the interaction of the myths surrounding the constellations, wherein Ursa Major is protecting Ursa Minor from the arrows of the other constellations. For what reason she was attacked and why she has to defend Ursa Minor (if she's defending him at all; she might just be holding him one last time before she dies), we don't really know (there seems to be some kind of war going on though), as this seems to be set in the same universe that Picolo-kun is making surrounding his other characters, Icarus and the Sun, and it might be explained in more detail later. Or, if it has nothing to do with Icarus and the Sun, despite using the same themes throughout, it might just be a commentary on the pain of no longer being able to care for and defend your child after you die. I can tell you as a mother, the fear of dying and leaving my child behind without me to care for them or to help them feel better is great, and this picture really speaks to me in that way, even if that wasn't the original intent of the artist. 

You are free to interpret the feelings of this picture as you want, and draw your own conclusions, but it's unfair and a little ignorant to just label the two pictures unoriginal (I can guarantee your wolf picture isn't the first to depict such a thing) simply because they are built upon a similar theme.

Not that it seems you care about that at all, as judging by your reply, you are more upset that as an artist of some talent, you don't have nearly as many views or followers as someone like Picolo-kun (notwithstanding that he has been a member for 2 years, creates polished and thought-provoking work, and updates regularly), than you are about the artwork being "unoriginal."
