Lakeside by Mr--Jack Lakeside by Mr--Jack
This was a highly delayed birthday gift for my very good friend :icontremulant5:, who's heading off to Finland later this year for travel and possible study (and depending on what happens I might join him there for a month or two), so I felt something a little nordic would be appropriate.

Bon Voyage! (even if you're not leaving till July...)
(and yep, there go the moose antlers again :D)

Very much inspired (in subject if not entirely style) by Paul Bonner, wonderful work!

Not many people can get dragons JUST right. But this dragon is just right.

It might be for my fondness of lakeside landscapes, but there's something about this one that i really like, also, DRAGONS!

Reminds a lot of The stories of Vainomonnen the Finnish hero. This has atmosphere up the wazoo. I love it. It also reminds me a little of the work, in terms of subject matter and composition, of Larry MacDougall the Canadian artist. Great idea with the antlers btw.

Simply amazing, as always. Love the intricacy of the staff and antlers, and the whole piece has a very nice atmosphere to it.

Great texture, as well!

Your use of more desaturated colorus lends a very heavy, atmosphere to this scene :)
I'm not sure the texturing in the background works though.. it makes the background seem too "close".. slightly disrupting the depth of field.

...VERY impressive rendition on the dragon. Antlers need to be done in a way that is both tasteful (WoW stylization? :P) and potent. This manages both quite nicely.
