Thank you! :D

Haven't sold a single one. :(

I've only sold 9 prints in total and two of those were to myself.

I think it's too simple as calendar. I mean white background, I know it's easy to say but I think it's true!
and you have concurence! :D
however, good job, dragons seem nice and you must have much patience to do all scales! ;)

concurence?

I don't agree with photoshopping backgrounds on pencil drawings and yet I am absolutely rubbish at drawing backgrounds :( I do actually think I know how to do the photoshopping in a colour background now though, it would just look awful due to the mix of medias.

I didn't speak about digital art, there is much more simple, a symbole for example, particular lines, stylised effects with pencils...
you'r totally right about mixed media! ;)

I never like the way pencil backgrounds look with the lines from the colouring but no matter how careful you are it still shows :(

Also its always rather scary to spend say 16 upwards hours on the dragon and then try a background...cos if it fails like it did on my faery the original copy is absolutely ruined.

well another advice, for you, I mean: learn utility of sketches!
do you want a little demo? I'll read you'r answer tomorow. :)
