Why does this also give me a Yoshitaka Amano vibe? It's just the way you painted the textures and shades from the acrylics. The dragon is emphasized a lot from the dark cool colors that make it pop out in the foreground. The brightest colors make it clear that I'm looking at the background. I also love the fact that the orb embodied in the dragon emits very little light, reinforcing the foreground even more. That's why I love this painting.
