The first thing I noticed when I looked at this is how it manages to both remind me of some dragons in fiction out there while remaining extremely fresh and original at the same time. The design reflects the title you gave it in your description as a "chaos lord". This creature is indeed fierce and chaotic; the details you have put into its appearance only serve to enhance these characteristics even more.

Speaking of details, the sheer amount of detail I see in this is stunning. Although the picture was done exclusively in black and white, the details are numerous, and the shading seems perfect. The shading and light use distinguish the numerous details in the lines, so no spot seems overly dark or hard to make out, and this helps to showcase the many different, and dangerous, characteristics of the creature.

To conclude things, I would also like to say that I'm astonished that this was drawn in MS Paint, and in my opinion that makes this even more impressive. Overall, a very excellent work.
What do you think?

Well it isn't the program per-say it's the wielder of the medium. Essentially the same with traditional media. ;)
