You have every reason to be happy with the result, this is great! The motive is so eye-catching and detailed, and the dragon (?) is stunningly well done

Very nice.  I like the Jörmungandr imagery. Great patience in rendering those ripples. I'm not sure I'm of any calibre to critique but, if I were to enhance this at all, it might be by going even darker on the contrast in the lower right and left corners, just to give it some balanced weight.

What is "Jörmungandr"? I'd like to know more about that :) (google didn't help)

Norse mythology. The world serpent. Grows so fast that he starts swallowing his tail.
SRudy's avatar
Oh I see! I'm honestly very curious about Norse Mythology but I never read anything about it (yet)

The creature in my drawing was inspired by the Ouroboros (greek) it's a circular symbol of a snake/dragon swallowing its tail, representing wholeness and infinity.

Yeah, I thought of Ouroboros and the similarities between the two after I commented.  In the mythology, Jörmungandr is said to swallow his tail and encompass the whole world as well but the depictions are usually of his battle with Thor at Ragnorok (ör…).  Anyhoo, the image is fantastic. Every time I try stipple (pointilism) I end up getting lazy and some of my points become 'commas.' Writing emoticon
