(This is my first ever critique on DeviantArt)

The usage of details were sorted thoroughly and effectively. No strokes look out of place, and the background blends with itself gorgeously. I especially love the white halo from the sun in the background, and how the yellow slowly turns into a blue, helping match the colors of the dragon.

However, the greens of the background could've flowed with the dragon's bold gold and purple much better if there were more plants or flowers with matching colors like the ones in the foreground. I see many yellow, blue, and purple flowers in the foreground, but it's very minimal in the background. The giant pillar directly behind the dragon could've had just a touch more yellow and gold plants, that way the (comparably) plain green doesn't look as plain without bringing the attention away from the dragon. All this would do is make the dragon appear more natural to its habitat without changing the dragons appearance, despite this potentially being one of the artists intentions.

Though the placement of colors in the environment could've been improved upon to not clash as much with the vibrant colors of the dragon, that factor does not leave me unimpressed. This piece successfully fulfills its intentions of giving off a vibrant and lively vibe. Very wonderful job.

This is my first critique either, thank you very much. I really appreciate your feedback. 
I thought about flowers in the background either but decided against it, because I thought even more small dots could make the background too restless.

Makes sense. It wouldn't make the background too restless at moderation though. Glad you like my critique tho.
