Oh my, I am very honored that you like this piece! It was a really curious and vast undertaking
as I was particularly ambitious with the background. So the fact it has been so well received in
regards to the experiment means so very much to me.
Thank you so very much though! It makes it soo much more worth it reading such lovely comments
like this.

Wow... this looks like an oil painting, your textures are so realistic and remind me of oil canvas paintings, not to mention the use of lighting, it's godly... 15 hours is pretty dang good for this

Nah this one was intended to be tranquil and soft in comparison to a lot of my others.
However, I love what I managed to accomplish given the subject was a bit different
from my usual and was meant to be bright, colorful and fun! I am so happy you like it
means a lot to me. :3 And yes! Must have the Toadies

Who knows?! Sayeth may very well enjoy pets, mainly if you feed him a fish! He loves
his fish, so if you caught one he might enjoy the tasty nibbles! XD I am so happy
you like this piece! It was a lot of fun to work on! And all the colors!

new things like this with each piece. :D

I think you did an absolutely stunning job with this! I love the colors you used to tie the scene together so well, and the framing with the wing and tail makes me feel really drawn into the scene. And of course, that is SO MUCH DETAIL. I'm amazed that you managed to do all this in 15 hours I think I've fainted. 
Wonderful job depicting the character, and that background is indeed a paradise. I'd love to have been there to just look at all the fish and critters, and listen to the waterfallHeart

Incredible as always, I love the colors and the composition. The way the dragon frames the whole picture makes it feel intimate, like viewer is there with him, standing only a few steps back, as opposed to simply observing both the dragon and the pool from a distance.
Only thing I would nitpick is that the waterfall in the background looks a little flat compared to everything else. Maybe you could still exaggerate the gradient from warmer more saturated tones to bluer and more muted colors as you go further back. Especially on the rocks that stick out of the water. The three large boulders in the middle of the fall stand out really well as is, but the rocks at the bottom are less distinct, so my brain is left a little unsure which of them is supposed to be closest to the viewer.

No prob I do thank you for your advice and will do my best to correct such mistakes next time!
I'm so glad people do not seem to mind giving me such critiques I mean I can't expect to get
better unless someone points out what looks wrong to them. XD So thank you soo much,
however, I am also happy you like the composition and the framing as I really wanted it to
feel much as you described in feeling there in the scene on an adventure to the treasure of
feesh. :3
