Kysairy by LadyDistort Kysairy by LadyDistort
In my story (where all my chars come from and dwell) there are 6 gods. This is Kysairy, the goddess and shepherd of the stars. Most stars are exactly so, big burning balls of gas, however her race also can take the form of stars in the sky or a more feral draconic form. She has a set of twin daughters. Ky and Raaloura. Ky resides on Drak'Varlai with her mate Kel. Raaloura remains in the heavens assisting the mother goddess.

Let's begin. As expected, the the main character, Kysairy, looks great in your design. I like the tatoo-like constellations on her body, the soft ruffle of her fur like a wild, free creature, her horns which hold their own gravitational field, and the shading. Goodness, the shading. There is such an incredible amount of time and painstaking effort looking at the dragon that I can physically feel it. As for her character design, I can see many different influences, from dragonadopters to ancient Chinese dragons to even aquatic creatures in greek mythology. I love the concept of a deity that can freely cross the cosmos like a astronaut crosses the inside of his spaceship, and you've captured her weightless physics. The comet trails on her horns are a pleasant and slightly humorous addition and help demonstrate her power over the galaxy. I am slightly put off by the stars on her body though, as although they seem to match with constellations they don't seem to be part of the stars behind her, rather they're just markings. Her tail also looks a bit thin towards the middle, and I'm worried that it might break.

What saps my attention almost more than the dragon itself, though; is the background. Those planets look amazing. The rings of aura, the jagged surfaces covered with tiny imprints and designs, and the atmosphere as it disappears into the cosmos as well as the trails of energy they emit to Kysairy are magnificent. The cosmos must have taken an unbelievable time to complete and your hard work shows.
If I had to complain about one possible thing, it's that the milky silver mane going the dragon's back looks almost too smooth compared to the other designs featured here and it's too simple, although the shading on it is well implemented. I don't see a single case of any line misshaded.
I award this a four for vision, a five for originality, a four point five for technique, and a four point five for impact. I felt that it was really good, but it was kind of hard discerning some things about the dragon. and how it fit into the outer space environment. I also found that her overall design was very similar to Distort and lacked a bit of originality. I did think that the drawing you did do was very original, amazingly talented and well thought out. Having it based on a back story certainly helps me relate to the Kysairy and learn more about her. I'll have to start critiquing your work with the expectation that it'll completely rock my world in order to correctly balance the good with the bad. Otherwise I'll just be sit[link] here with my mouth open garbling nonsense. But no matter what negative things I might add about your art, know that it's still incredible.
What do you think?

That's pretty sweet. Maybe I can learn to replicate that background now that I finally have Photoshop. (I need it for some college classes)
