Very amazing piece of art and a simply breathtaking piece! I love the colour scheme you've used. It captures a perfect theme and mood. Also an amazing use of perspective! This is a very pretty piece of art.

I have a few little issues with the technique. I feel like the wing of the main dragon could use a bit of improvement. Compared to the rest of the picture, the shading seems a tad flat and makes it look a bit flat, just around the area where is slopes down. I would have liked to seen it a bit more rounded. Also, on the same wing, the scales look a little messy and out of place to me but apart from that, the technique is amazing. I love the way you draw the feathers and fur. Well done!

I absolutely love your style. It's very distinct and unique but it would be nice to see you trying something different and switching things up a bit. You have so much potential!

Keep up the amazing artworks.

(I've never wrote a critique widget before -only critique comments -, so I don't know how this will go. ^^; I'm still pretty excited of my first critique, so long I've been waiting for this!)

Okay I shall begin.

First of all I must say I love your night scene drawings and the idea of crystal towns! You did good job with the wings, they're gorgeous. Especially the ones on the dragon's next to Alv. (I wonder who it is, its horns even look similar to Alv's. And is that a phoenix there? Maybe Arcarija or...?)
I love the way the misty-looking stardust falls over the mountains and behind them, it gives some mysterious look and the picture itself looks welcoming. Alv looks very gentle like she'd be leading the way. (I saw you drawing this by the way and) I think you found a perfect pose for Alv's tail! This way it gives this piece more distance. You drew all the creatures very beautifully! ^^

But still every drawing contains mistakes, no matter how well they're done. It is also said that sometimes mistakes make the perfect work, believe it or not. :)

So here's some things that caught my eye:
I noticed Alv's Wing seems to be a bit too close the the mountain line there where the feathers curl near to her tail and also a bit under the curled feathers. This piece has a clear movement of wings but it kind of stops when you look at that area. Other thing that bothers me are the two planets. To me it seems like the green one is too close to the blue one. It wouldn't be a problem if it didn't make the bigger planet look less round. I think some dark shadow might fix that. This way the work misses the green planet's shadow on the bigger one. And I suggest making the bigger planet's own shadow darker so that it could fit better with the position of light and to the night-looking atmostphere. Now it looks like it'd be under the day light when the drawing overall is dark and night themed.
But to think about it, this way the drawing looks more dreamlike. So it is your decision do you prefer it to look more realistic or dreamy.

Otherwise you did a wonderful job and I can see a bit of improvement in this work too. Keep up the good work and I hope this critique was helpful! <3

You make me think fondly on very old memories that I usually don't like to think about, especially your art on Lemuria. I don't know if we're alike, but regardless, it makes me feel a bit better that there are some who still know more than their told.

Just to say this edit feels better! The black hues on the background are more peaceful to watch, glad you changed it from the blue. :)
