The king of nothing - feather painting

The big cold desert, where nobody is living. Only moon follows him every night, when he is watching over the kingdom of Nothing.
Who knows, maybe one day somebody will keep away his loneliness under the sky, full of falling stars and northern lights..

This certainly is a piece to marvel at. If I were holding the real thing and looking at it, I think I'd struggle to put it down.
It's so beautiful that it'd be hard to take your eyes off of it. ^__^
Your feather paintings are absolutely stunning and they really don't cease to amaze me. It's a pleasure looking at creations such as this, and it really gives me hope to improve.
You've used a good amount of tones and a lovely range of colours in this piece.
Once again, you've clearly worked hard to perfect your patience to be able to create something such as this.
The creature on the feather is absolutely beautiful. You've really captured the details very well, enhancing the character's/creature's beauty even more.
Something else I like about your feathers is that you add the little touch of tying a string with beads on it to the end of the feather. It just gives it that extra special touch that makes it even more appealing to viewers of your artwork.
Keep up the good work, I'll look forward to seeing more. ^_^

I'm fascinated by your feather paintings! :) This one is very nice, I like the sense of isolation under a night sky full of stars and shimmering Northern Lights...

Magnificent! The color choice is perfect, it provides a great contrast and yet a harmony with the color of the feather. The background is marvelous, the aurora along with the moon and stars is a wonderful backdrop. The way the dragon's mane is drawn makes it as if there's wind howling. But the most captivating is the dragon's expression, it's as if he stares into your eyes. As if he knows you're looking at him.
