At first glance this piece if pretty much perfect, but like all things, if looked at more closely, there are a few errors, but first, the good.

GOOD:

Textures, colors, composition, use of stock material, background is spot on, depth of field

And now areas of improvement:

Mostly everything is good, except for few technical errors. I'm a little confused by the lighting. Is the light source the Dragon Balls, or the sun? I'm not sure why Shenron's head is so shadowed. It does make sense if the Dragon Balls are the light source, but then where is the sun? Second gripe, which caught my attention the most was that the direction of the scales change halfway through. They're going away from the head to begin with, but somewhere in the first bend of Shenron's torso, the scales change direction, which doesn't make sense to me. And I would have made the scales a little smaller towards the tip of the tail. They also look blurry in a few places. And lastly, what's going on with the one-star ball? The star looks more like an "x"

Fix those things, and I'd say you'd have a dang near perfect piece of work! Great job on everything so far! I certainly couldn't have done it! xD

You know, I can see why his name was changed to Shenron in the English dub.

Shenron in the original name  but the right traslitteration of the world is Shenlong (Like Vegeta instead of "Bejita" or Crilin instead of "Kuririn" )
But, we used to call it always Shenron and not Shenlong ahahah
Imagine doing the same with Vegeta and call him always Bejita xD

really cool work! Fanart in the photomanip genre is quite rare, and the dragon is pretty impressive! That was probably a lot of work to get the textures right. How did you create the dragonhead? Is it painted?

Thank you so much dear! This isn't a paint, this work is a fotomanipulation. The dragon head was a join of various textures images e photos. I linked all in description. :)
