I showed my grandmother a picture of yours, I don't remember which one, but she didn't compliment the drawing, instead, she looked at the backgroungd and said it looked too realistic. She said that you MUST have taken a photograph of the sky, then kinda animated it to go better with the painting! I dont believe her, but it does make me curious......

No- my work is totally painted by hand! :) You can see how I get messy here and there.

It is just...just so...so....
It left me speechless. This picture is so awe inspiring. It looks so real, like we are looking out a airplane window and happen to see two dragons skimming the clouds (which is highly unlikely) I have always marveled at your talent for poses but this has gone way past the line i thought you were capable of. This is magnificent.

Awesome but how come the dragon in the background has no wing-bones?

She does! Her wings have feathers covering the top, and the wing sail is like that of a pterosaur. There is only one 'finger' along the leading edge.

I faved this one a couple of weeks ago, but often look at it. I've just realised what struck me about it - that most dragons I see suffer from the 'bumble-bee' problem - with their tiny wings, they could never even flutter, never mind fly.

Yours look like they were born on the wing.

The wing membranes were well done on these creatures. I don't know what to call them, I've never seen a dragon with feathers before. Then again, I've never seen a dragon either. xD

This looks like it should be on the cover of a Book! Very well done. ^^
