Alright, first the high points.

You did the colors and lighting of this piece marvelously, I found the brightness and contrast to be in excellent balance with one another in relation to dragon and background. The color was also a wonderful shade and vividness, not something you see everyday with dragons, usually they're more steely and dull, unless it tends to be a pure white. Also, again, I love how the front limbs are actual arms instead of legs, major kudos from me on that.

Now the down points. I felt the entire face of the creature was just a little weird to me, especially the eyes. I've always felt that dragons, especially bright, colorful ones like this, should not have visible black pupils, and the snout, while it is a front view, just did not seem quite long enough, or was a little too wide, which gave the dragon's face a rather undraconic roundness to it that I just found strange. Overall effort: 10+. Overall effect: Hard to judge but with the color, light balance, and arms as the saving grace, 8.9/10.

I appreciate your critique. Pupils to me are just part on any anatomy unless one is blind. Just a habit, things look strange to me without them.

Your points are valid and appreciated. The front view is of a model of a dragon in Cinema 3D, foreshortening happens. Had I understood more back than (I'm self-taught) I'd have adjusted his head or pose. I was intending a "in your face, coming at you" feeling.

I've never tried Vue but I love the art I've seen done using it over Bryce for realism. Cinema is awesome BUT expensive, my son is in computer classes and got a discount on the license but once he's done lol I don't know if I'm ready to put out 3 grand on a program I don't use all the time anymore.

It is an incredible work of art, Brenda... The way you got the water to move, part, flow... Absolutlely incredible. I've never seen anything else like it. Totally original, and a superb piece of art! I actually studied it for a few minutes and could not figure out how you managed to get the water to look so realistic. Needless to say I was VERY impressed. Very!!!!

It was my pleasure and an honor to add "Elemental Dragon - Water" to my faves... It's top-notch!!!! :)

WOW Thanks Dan! The water is actually all a result of caustics and lighting and the material I made in Cinema4d, I put the dragon inside a sphere and textured the sphere like making abstracts in Bryce. It is amazing what one minor change in a material or even just a few degrees rotation on a light can alter the appearance. Lol in other words, mad scientist mode is how I work constantly pressing allt he buttons so to speak sometimes it works and other times lol it was a bad bad button and alarms and lockdown and ;P. Simply put I love shiny and reflective, I work with those alot and have some wonderful accidents. Thank you for you compliment, I never know really how to reply but thank you!!!
