you are very welcome- I really do like it and I understand about having to deal with properties and instructions that must be followed. You handled it well and I look forward to see what else you come up with.

you are welcome. Here's to more great works- cheers

As a hug fan of flash gordon, I was really excited about this piece (I still am). I enjoy the retro ship, Ming is very impressive as with the entire background montage. The good dr, the beast, the Prince and the overall feel. I really like the red in the background as well, a very nice touch.

Dale was a surprise, but I like how you fleshed her out - her figure is clean and stands with a lot of power,which is really good.

My only real issue is flash himself. You have such a dynamic feel about the entire piece and Flash is a little ho-hum. He looks big yet he does not have the same flare as the rest of the work. Very clean, yet I would love to see him a little more dynamic, with a lot more power in his stance and his poise.

The other issue is simple anatomy on flash as well. Back arm too low and forward knee is too high (need to bring it down) and his wrist and forearm look a little meshed. These issues are minor and can be tweaked.

It is a fantastic piece and I will fav it. (I do not usally fav b/w pencil pieces) but I really like this one a lot. Like I said you have all the key elements. It is just that Flash could be a little more dynamic.

Keep up the fantastic work- I think this will be a great cover.

i love how casually the knights look, waiting their targets. There is a lot of power there, unspoken, with out them engaged. It makes me wonder that these two are really bad enough to take out the beast that come their way.

If i was to give cc, i would say it is in the town below that gets lost - maybe a little more depth to that, but honestly the town isn't really needed- since i would think that these two would stand to fight the dragons before they attacked the town and not waiting from behind.

It is more of a logistic issue than a technique issue.
otherwise the piece is really well put together - from color to form to execution.

like i said my only thought is the city should not be between the enemy and prey- yet maybe these men are not knights and are there just for the kill so the town does not even matter to them.

well done

I like the piece- but I have a few thoughts on how to make the piece a little stronger, concept wise.

The thought of a boy riding a dragon is quite dear to me - and yet the boy seems to be flying while the dragon is just hovering, which is creating a contrast of conflicting movement.

To create a more uniform form of movement a suggestion would to have the dragons arms extended as the boys arms. Giving both characters a feel that they are both enjoying the flight. It will also create motion on the part of the dragon that matches the boys movement.

I think you are on the right track, you just need to match the emotion to both of these characters to make it stronger. Make the dragon fly as fast as the boy is showing he should be.

Keep up the good work
