" A meeting most momentous."

please, any feedback is most appreciated.

This was an experimental piece and also a fun character interaction sketch between my character Morgan and my friend :iconashascadence: character Lord Hydra
I tried many things in this piece because for one I suck at backgrounds and wanted to work on them, two I have never been able to fully show how big one of my characters is until my more recent works with perspective. So yeah a lot of experiments with this piece and when I think of a good story I'll write one for it ;)

Materials used: PSCS5 Extended Wacom Intuos III

Time taken: 8 hours

Species Nagendra and Lord Hydra is :iconashascadence:

Artwork and character Morgan Aislin Risaldin are to me :iconthirteenth-sanction:

Ok. So there are only two things that are bothering me with this picture. They can be fixed or they don't have to be. Its all about your chioce in the matter, I'm just saying what my eye doesn't seem to look right.

One: That back tail fin looks very large. I know that you are working on perspective and I'm keeping that in mind. But the fin still looks overly large, if you size it down just a bit, I think it would look fine. Right now it looks like you have a really long tail or just a huge tail fin.

Two: Why does your metal dragon have such a small head? The thick neck of his and I'm guessing the big body mass, he has such a small head. I would think, for proportional reasons that his head would be bigger in size. But being the fantasy world you can do what ever u wish, so if this is supposed to be your dragon's look then you don't have to change it.

I have no complaints of the background and the color usage is just fine, so good job on that. And the metal dragon in forest environment makes me chuckle, like he got lost or something. :D
What do you think?

Practice makes perfect, I've been drawing for a long time. Keep at your work and you'll improve. Study anatomy, study perspective, study colors, study all you can and apply it to work work through practice and perseverance and you will get there. ;)
