This piece is so incredibly well-done, I'm not how 'worth it' it is to write the critique, but here goes!

I love the integration of colors - you've got a whole range of hues and shades, and yet it all works together seamlessly.

The lighting here is divine as well - some very bright spots, some rather shadowed, but overall a soft/muted and very smooth feel.

The dragon's pose is great, he certainly feels like a 'lord', exuding confidence and owning the area. I'm not a huge fan of the dark head or the lightning-bolt tail, but they're very impressive and well-done. My only actual critical comment about this entire piece is that the wings looks too big for the dragon - but that's it!

All in all, this is an incredible piece! I'm sure the commissioner was very happy with it

^^'  Oh wow, it's so good!  I'm horrible at compliments, but I really am... eh, impressed is an understatement... with him!  I almost always mess up somehow with proportions. (ie, my contact picture where the sword looks like it's only a foot long or so.)  I end up working so hard on detail, I forget about sizing... but you're really good at all the pieces of making wonderful artwork!

Hey it's no biggie the fact you gave a nice compliment means very well and much to me. I'm honored you like the lil piece it means a great deal to me. I do my best to try new things and learn more about perspective, anatomy, and composition, I am by no means the best but I don't think I'm half bad for being self taught. And it's encouraging to get compliments like this for me. So thanks it really means a lot, and keep up your studies and persevere, you'll get there. ;)
