Frazetta's work is beautiful, a stunning talent. Very underappreciated. Not familiar with RB and LR (will check them out) but saw a documentary about Frazetta that was amazing. I recommend the doc......Painting with Fire, or something like that. Who did your avatar? Fits in the Frazetta genre.Yah.
I have an archive of his,Ralph Bakshi and Luis Royo's stuff.
That 's interesting, I can sense her presence as well. Shame you can't single out the artist.She can soothe and tame the beast. A magical healer that expresses power in her energy and presence. She is strong but only uses the lightest touch.
Looked up Bakshi and Royo. Is the Royo stuff animation? It doesn't look like water color. His women are very feminine and cat like , not rugged and earthy like Frazetta. Royo expressions are very expressive, not Gamma, if you like. Both styles are idealized but beautiful in their own right. Your avatar seems to fall between the two? Or I maybe I should admit ignorance in art.
I see her as vulnerable and at the complete mercy of the dragon.
That is why she is clutching her breast in a protective gesture and her wings are tucked back and down like the downward laying ears of a dog in submission. She is also reaching out with one arm and opening her eyes wide simultaneously, which shows she is curious about the dragon. Fear and wonder are what she is feeling. Her mouth is in a classic open gaping gesture which denotes surprise. What is surprising her in this moment? She is staying very still as can be seen with the dragons saliva dripping on her leg. Is she aware of the drip and choses not to pay attention for fear her movement will startle the beast? Does she chose not to move because she is so mesmerized and locked in a enthralling dance of fear and curiosity? I believe the artist is asking us to wonder.
There is a hint of amusement in the dragon's eyes...

I'm constantly looking to align the real with the ideal.I've been more oriented toward being overly idealistic by expecting the real to match the ideal. My thinking side is dominent. The result is that sometimes I can be overly impersonal or self-centered in my approach, not being understanding of others in the process and simply thinking "you should do this" or "everyone should follor this rule"..."regardless of how they feel or where they're coming from"which just isn't a good attitude to have. It is a way, though, to give oneself an artificial sense of self-justification. LSE

I also find this guys work very appealing too but in a different way.
Watched both.........my take is like yours, the energies are very different, the Royo stuff seems very emotionally expressive, and that is the center, while the others seem to be scented on the action taking place. Your avatar is expressive but has the physicality of the other artists, so I get your synthesis of the two genres, the expressive innocent women who is not in over her head facing a dragon. Thanks for the depth you have gone to explain your avatar to me, I appreciate your sincerity.I love it all but I would say something about Royo might be the most intriguing to me. The women are portrayed using their energies in a specific way that I find appealing. I would say my avatar and I fall somewhere in between.I am not very rugged at all. Royo's work has an underlying innocence to it and more of an ethereal.

Is it just me who finds this comic strip to be very Si?
I could only see this as Beta Duality if it was a mockery of Si... If not, it is more likely Delta Duality. This image reminds me of the Childlike attitude of a Delta NF, transcribing its unconscious Si desires unto the car of the ST Caretaker, who ends up washing the Childlike... (Note how the Caretaker just bought the groceries when he got to the Childlike; ensuring they have got something to eat, too. )
I just got the impression he is being territorial (Se) and protective of her. While she is the Victim looking into the distant future, being a bit agitated. He calms her down.
But I could see the guy being similar to a care-taking ST Delta from the perspective of a Delta NF.
Maybe this image is a bit neutral in this respect. It is more open to interpretation than the first one I've posted.
The girl isn't running though because she feels in control of the situation in some strange way. She is also somewhat displaying a careful watching mode for sure but at the same time she's open for something more from the dragon. I'm not sure what that "something more" is. It all might be a sinister passion somehow.
Also, I don't think her wings are tucked in the way like the submissive dog's ears. Just simply at rest, indicating that the girl is not thinking about fleeing.
So, overall, to me, they are sizing up each other on first contact with complex attitudes of interest. What really took my attention in this picture was the postures/poses, the way they are looking at each other checking each other out, the suspense of them waiting before anything else happens. You also put it well when you said they were mesmerized at each other.
The other thing that took my attention was that I instantly drew a psychological parallel about how you can descend deeper in your mind to see what's hiding there and it invoked an interesting feeling/impression.
@hatesyardwork Feel free to analyse my perspective too haha
