I found Doknar's drawings/paintings long ago whe I was perusing Russian websites, some of which had copied a lot of data and pages from my own website. The work by Doknar clearly stood ot from the rest and is more tha worth enough to be shown here. I unfortunaty don't know anything about the artist himself (herself?). The person is clearly a big Pern fan and the paintings are on many different subjects and there's even a picture of a sculpture made (see in approprate section).

This is Doknar's take on the bridge of the Yokohama.

Only by the title of this painting, "Trouble of Tai", do we know that this is suppose to depict Tai, rider of green Zaranth and partner of bronzerider F'lessan, the main protagonists of the book The Skies of Pern.

This painting is titled "Sebelll and Menolly". The Master Harper couple is clearly entertaining at a gather in this wonderful scene. Menolly's firelizards are joining in the fun.

This is "The abduction of Sharra" and depicts the exact scene from the book. Sharra with only a blanket around her, just having managed to escape from Southern Hold where her brother Toric held her against her will and Jaxom on Ruth coming to pick her up and fly back to the Landing plateau to confront Lord Holder Toric. A wonderful scene.

"The repair of the Yokohama" shows us the EVA of an apprehensive Jaxom and Ruth, the last hanging onto the spars and enjoying himself.

This scene is Ramoth's first Hatching. Ramoth is a little agitated and Lessa is telling her partner to relax and don't be silly because the candidates (in the foreground, not dressed in white) must Impress!

An earlier scene in which Ramoth is glowing golden and ready to rise. She is blooding her kill and on to her second wherry. The bronzes in the background are excited and also blooding their kills so they can fly high and strong in the hopes of a good mating flight, a flight for which Pern had to wait far too long... Lessa, in red, is admonished not to let Ramoth eat her wherries but to only blood them.

Another easy to recognise scene. A runner has just collapsed from the plague on te Ratha Hold racing flats. Lord Holder Alessan of Ruatha and Weyrwoman Moreta of Fort are discussing the situation.

Doknar titled this "Lessa's birth". It is clearly the most important Impression scene of them all: Lessa ready to Impress golden Ramoth. A few candidates have already Impressed their dragons and, true to the scene in the book, one of the candidates is severly wounded. A blue dragon brings in a late candidate.

A Fall scene with Ruth, with Jaxom on his back, surging into the fore to sear the Thread from the Ruathan skies. Ruth is flying with a queens wing: the golden dragons in the background have riders operating flamethrowers. A fighting scene that is executed excellently.

A scene from Dragonsdawn: the eruption of Mount Garben, with some of the first dragonriders in the foreground.

"Don't leave me alone" is the name Doknar gave to this painting, so this must be Brekke crying out for F'nor not to die.

And here's an earlier scene in which Brekke finally declares her love for F'nor while is recuperating in Southern.

The famous scene from Red Star Rising / Dragonseye in which the dragons and their riders are attacked by vicious lions and other cats while visiting the southern continent.

I'm not completely sure which scene this is but I think it is Ruth (the dragon is white) bathing in Ruatha's ice lake. I think it is the ice lake because of the mountains in the background and by the fact that Jaxom, sitting in the meadow, is fully clothed and not joining Ruth.

Clearly a Hold scene but if it has any specific importance I don't know, unless it is meant to depict people leaving Ruatha Hold at the outbreak of the Plague in the Sixth Pass.

Is this Lessa, surveying the Weyr bowl of her Benden Weyr?
