My third attempt at a dragon. Over all, I'm quite pleased how it came out. Colored digitally. Contest piece.

    That's amazing! Very well done in both composition and detail. The contrast of light and shadow is perfect, and I love the action. You can almost feel the heat. ^__^ Wish you luck in the contest!

    Very striking and dramic, I like the light and dark contrasts. I'd run too if I saw that behind me.

      Oh, I'd be long gone just from looking at the lava flows, lol.

      Thanks Smile

    now that´s amazing! the mage is really lucky that he is able to block that fire! Smile good job on the horse too! that picture is so vivid that i almost stepped back from the screen not to get involved! how long did you work on that?

      I think it took me a couple of months, not bad. I actually drew the characters separately, then added them later. I've never done a picture that way before but it worked out.

      I'm thinking if I get a bunch of 'em together maybe I can create a calendar. Now that would be sweet!

    *blink* Okay... you're officially disgusting. No one should be allowed to be this good. I'm resisting the urge to wipe soot off my face! Honestly!

    Amazingly done! The dragon especially is very well done with the layers and textures.
    The fire is very awesome as well, it's very bright and hot looking with a nice style about the shape of the flames.

      Thank you. Originally, I had planned it for a contest. But then the contest was cancelled Sad Now I've found a new one. Hope it makes this time!
