(the last one I did was the Egypt dragon)

O MY GOSH!!! this is so amazing!. The shading,
the realisticness, its just so epic!!! And that fire is very good!
The background is amazing and that castle is a very nice touch. The way you did the scales are very nice, and the shading from the fire on them adds a nice touch :) It all looks so nice, the only thing that could possibly be improved is maybe the clouds. But all-in-all IT IS AMAZING!!! I love the dragons colors too. I am so going to add this to my favorites! nice job!!:)
What do you think?

:iconthaddeusdaruszka:
Very excellent piece. The artist has made very good use of color by contrasting the colder toned background with the mostly warmer toned dragon. The contrast within the dragon with the warmer colors and a few cooler colors is also well done. The shape, composition and rhythm of the dragon works really well. The use of value could have been a little better on the dragon, mainly in the areas lit by the light of the fire. Some really dark values with sharply contrasting light values would have helped make it "pop" a little more. The fire itself could have also been a little more dynamic in overall size and shape. But overall it is a very well done piece of work with excellent technique and illustration.
