A little fun project that started with a choise of colours and was finished just now in order to become a print at EF artshow this year. :D

Gah, feel like I'm always late with commenting, but What A Beauty! :wow:
Absolutely love the colour choice, with the cold light and warm reflections. The sky is lovely, with the clouds making my brain wonder if it is the water streaming out to the horizon as if it were trees towering up.
What draws me in the most though, is the immense amount of detail. Just look at the texture of the membrane, as well as on the individual scales. I almost feel like one of them had a shiny heart painted on? :)
But really, anywhere I look there are neat details from the fish, dancing particles, the water and the scales. Ah, I will never get a comment done if I keep looking at those scales, as wherever I turn they all are unique and fit for the specific region they are to cover.
There is only two things these days of studies have actually allowed me to find for a critique; Firstly, the picture seem to have been extended some to the left, where things like the details of the closest bush therefore cuts off? :?
The second is the contrast, as there seem to be an equal depth regardless of the distance, making the darkest cloud just as dark as the shadow bellow the dragon.
Then again, this might also be a result of my endless starting, as it really is an amazing piece. :love:

Haha and I'm the one always replying too late. ^^
Thanks so much for your wonderful evaluation of the picture again. :3
You really seem to have spend some time watching the picture. :)
The one part that lacks details was my mistake. Originally I planned to finish the whole dragon but time ran out for the auction. ^^"
The file was cut correctly for the print but for the upload I did it wrong and since you were the only one recognizing (or telling), I'm just to lazy to change the file. :D
Funny you see little hearts on the scales. ^^ I love doing little swirls on the scales. A friend of mine drew once a picture of Leundra and she added swirls along the lineart made it look so light and cute. :)

The contrast is actually a great hint! I'll try to change that in the next pictures. Going from hard close contrast to lighter one in the back. :)
Thanks so much! :D You're really a great help and as it seems one of the last real commentators. ^^"

Jup, ich bin mit meinem Edenschwert endlich etwas weiter gekommen, ich muss da meinen Post mal mit Fotos updaten. :D
Sonst mache ich ja nichts extra, Artist Alley macht ja nur Liz. Ich habe leider nur drei Wochen vor der Con noch meine OP im Oktober, da muss ich schauen, dass ich danach rechtzeitig einfach wieder fit bin.

Awesome!!
Was für eine Perfektion bis ins kleinste Detail, das ist wirklich bewunderswert.
Ich liebe auch die Farbwahl. Komplimentärfarben wirken immer spannend.

Mehr Komplementärbilder!!!! Ich hab das Thema im Kunstunterricht geliebt! (eines von wenigen) Und ich freu mich immer, wenn ein Künstler es aufgreift :D
Die Schuppen finde ich echt genial, sie sehen irgendwie... metallisch aus.

Vielen lieben Dank für dein liebes Lob. x3
Jap, finde es auch interessant wie durch die beiden Farben der Drache recht metallisch wirkt, das kommt sicher daher, dass er praktisch keine eigenen Farben hat, sondern alles aus der Umwelt reflektiert.

In den Schuppen steckt ganz schön Arbeit. Schade sieht man das so wenig auf dem "kleinen" Bild hier. Aber ein echt tolles Bild! :)
