This started out as a speedpaint then it evolved from there. It was really cool seeing how I could take a speedpainting to a finished product.

I never expected a DD! Thank you!

this is phenominal!
there's so much detail i can practically smell the grass and feel the soft morning light. its a gorgeous piece with excellent composition and an eye pleasing color palatte. the shading on this work of art is delightfully muted so as not to destroy the gentle colors of the grass and the beautiful reddish glow of the dragons wings.
the dragons features are noteworthy themselves. the dragons expression seems almost pondering, as if its wondering what lies ahead that day.
i wanted to say excellent work on this fantasy piece, something i rarely ever say. this made my day.

This is a marvelous piece of work. The anatomy of the dragon is fantastic (though it is a bit hard for me to see two of its feet due to the shadowing, but I'm sure they are wonderful). The scenery work is very good. The trees look very real and aren't too uniform, which I think takes a special touch. One thing that I'm not too keen on is that the grass to the right looks muddled, but I understand if this can't be helped to due paint, but I love the reeds in the front. The colouring in the sky is just right. The perfect combinations of the light pink, and the orange of the rising (or setting) sun, and the reflection in the water in the foreground is just superb. I like the slight haze in the background (which makes me think it's dawn). It gives the clearing a secluded and quiet, peaceful, and overall serene appearance. When I looked at this, it's like my body just sighed and relaxed, my eyes drinking in your work. Very, very good.

i give this the 5 to 5. a perfect peice of art. i just love the dragon and all the details. the vision is fantastic, you can see all the details and it looks so realistic that it looks as if you can run up and touch it. its an original idea it doesnt look mlike ive seen this before. the technique is beyond belief. as i said it looks like you can touch it. really professional on your part. and the impact is great to. it just stands out so beautifully. youve out done yourself this time. If your not a professional artist then you probaly will soon become one. really good peice of art.

Oh my goodness gracious! This is absolutely incredible!
Sensational, I say! such an elegant look at the world's best fantasty creature! The lighting is perfect, the shading is incredible, and the details are just breath-taking!

As a lover of dragons, I have to say that this instantly stole my heart! It's like one of those dreams where you see a large dragon amongst the beautiful terrain of the new world.

This really isn't like most dragon arts that I'VE seen. It really points out the tranquility that a dragon's presence can have. Such a beautiful piece of art, I absolutely love it!

how long have you been painting?

I started with oils back in 2000. I Just got into digital because of the undo button :D
