"The membranous walls of the Dragon Forge carried a passenger they could not conceive. For aeons,
the guardians thought the chambers of the Forge empty. Even for their power, they were blind to the
machinations of a primordial anger. He had warped his own flesh for the purpose of slaying the dragon
that took his brother. A will this ancient; a will that helped shaped the multiverse and its inhabitants,
had now become a necessary force for destruction."

Oooh, that's so awesome! I really love that creature design AND the character design, especially fell in love with those floating fingers / holey armor. Those slightly glowing blue horns are great as well. :nod:
Really like the dynamics of the picture as well. :D
Only small thing I notice (but you absolutely don't have to change that, if you don't like) is that the colors are relatively monochrome. I feel like the artwork might benefit from a slightly wider range of colors.

Thank you. My focus, honestly, were the characters and the lighting on Gersul's (the dragon hybrid) body.
Really? I tried putting some light green, blue, purple, and even orange in most places, but I guess I should try
amping that up. Thanks for noticing, I really aim to create pieces with dynamic color as well as with everything
else, so it's good that you pointed that out. :)

I really think you succeeded in doing that. The lighting on Gersul's body is indeed beautifully executed! :D
Well, I notice that you threw in all kind of colors (that's certainly good), but the overall color is mostly brownish. Because of that Gersul somewhat vanishes a bit in the background - it's almost the same hue.

Thank you. I'll definitely try to make balanced yet dynamic color schemes in the future. Cheers again, OrmIrian. :)

great job Sanekyle! he actually reminds me a lot of your krampus heheh everything looks fantastic, but gotta say that the walls stand out,  really like the shapes there and the way they lead the viewer´s eye towards the main character :)

Thanks, Carlos! :) Really wanting to metal things up. :XD: I've received a few comments that said that the walls were too bright
but I decided to just go with it since it was a membranous texture that I wanted to emphasize. Far from perfect definitely, but
I am extremely happy with it! :D Glad you like the shapes! Was inspired a lot from Ola Larsson's art. You'll recognize his stuff. ;)
Cheers!

Well I don´t think the walls are bright enough to actually steal any attention away from the main character, on the contrary, i think they direct it towards him, it´s a fantastic detail! and yes,it has that Ola Larsson vibe going on hehe great job!

The perspective of the structure appears a little loose, and the magic and fire(?) could benefit from some glowy aura of some sort. At the moment their lighting looks like separate pieces put together instead of existing as a whole in one scene, or kind of like an afterthought.  
Nice framing though. Seems like you're getting more ambitious.
