My Exposé 9 entry. I would like for this painting to tell a story on its own.

During the process of this painting, I've picked up a lot of new techniques and developed mentally as an artist, so look forward to better art from now on! :)

Edit: A DD! Thanks a bunch, everybody! <3 Thanks to :iconzolaida: for suggesting this piece and to :iconnorke: for featuring it! :) Also thanks for all the critique given by fans and friends during the process, it could not have been done without you <3 Aaand thanks for all the comments and favs. Unfortunately I cannot reply to all, but I am grateful nonetheless!

Edit #2: Oh wow, dA featured this one on the dA facebook page, thanks a lot :) I'm really glad that the painting that I've spent more time on than any other is still strong!

Hello Spoonfish. I hope this reaches you. I'm a new author of a fantasy book series. I've been looking for a little over a year now for someone whose artistic talent would match up with my books. I won't go into great detail here but if you're even the slightest but interested, please join the books Facebook page: The Secret Realms of the Hidden Elves. Contact me when/if you do and hopefully we can chat more. I'm convinced my stories can supply a limitless supply of ideas and imagination for more of your epic art. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!

Oh. My. GOODNESS!
I finally found the original creator *dances in a circle out of grand happiness*
I love this piece of art SO SO MUCH! It is my current desktop wallpaper! :3 It's so magical, detailed and exceptionally beautiful!
I don't suppose I may use a part of it (specifically the dragon's eye area) for a cover for my National Novel Writing Month story? Ever since I found your work, I am not satisfied with any other dragon art I've seen so far, and thus I can't find an image I'd like to use for my cover. I always jump back to this. May I use it? Pretty please? ;__;

Woah, I'm sorry about this slow reply. I'm very happy you like the image. You can use it for anything, as long as you do not claim the credit for making it, and not making any money from the image :)

I love the feeling of a fairy realm.  The lights give it that.  The dragon has personality.  What is the girl saying to the dragon?

This just is incredible to the maximum, lighting, anatomy, real-nature like, colors, and plain creativity that is clearly shown on this amazing painting. Your very inspiring, this is probably one of the best paintings I've ever seen! :D

Also, what did you use to make/paint this?

Everything about this is beautiful, from the color and lighting, to the textures, to the interaction of a legendary creature and a small child. Amazing work!

Hooray for reverse image search, I finally know who's the original creator of this masterpiece. I have around 20 desktop wallpapers, and this one is certainly my favorite. Amazing work! :D
