I'm really digging the limited palette in this one. Also the linework and what beautiful characters :D

Well it's the same character just two different forms of her :D But I had a lot of
fun with this piece as it was a huge experiment :D

This turned out amazing and you know it Them eyebrows You shaded her face lovely and I think I don't even have to
say on how badass you did her dragon form :XD: The little snarl and expressions on them both strong, and I 
love contrast between the green and hints of red warm tones which you can spot around the painting :la:
Just keep going, you're doing it great :iconilavplz:

Anatomy certainly proves far better and has experienced improvement in the current rendition of the image, however if I may but offer I ultimately prefer your previous subtle form and tones of coloration. The current piece simply retains far too great of outstanding contrast compared to your former dark and subtle style.
noctem-tenebris's avatar

Whilst I disagree upon the notion of color and lighting, I believed the prior picture failed in that department.
However I am still glad you like some though not all improvements within the new, I simply wish to continue
to further my ability in areas I am horribly weak. Namely, lighting, colors, contrast, form, etc, The "older style"
you refer to only showed my great ineptitude in these departments.

Too much black was used and not enough range and variation in my pieces which resulted in muddied and lack-
luster images that failed to read even in the smallest thumbnail which resulted in failure.  So Whilst your
preference as been duly noted, it is not within my interest to regress back into a style that demonstrated lack
of skill.
