Whoa, this really is an amazing place. I like how the canyon retreats back into the huge mountains beyond. And those clouds are developing pretty rapidly for this early in the morning. I bet the active clounds would make it a good flying day, and your dragon could probably make it to those distant mountains on glide, if he wished.

But why would he? I love how he's sprawled out across the rocks, like there is all the time in the world. I wonder what the sunrise looked like from his perspective. 

So...where was this photo taken? ;)

I don't think I'm the right person to ask. If I were to analyse it I would say dragons would be more developed like birds and higher dinosaurs to be endothermic (warm blooded). But then again, it's fantasy so just decide for yourself.

Did you use a reference? Or some sort of texture?

Hooolllly crap. How long did this take?! Actually, how long was each session on it? Or did you jump between all day and a few hours here and there.

The character is incredibly well done, especially the wings, and in terms of the background I love the cliff-faces just above him in the distance. The colours are well selected and...

hhhnnng look at me you've reduced me to a blabbering fanboy mess dgfdsdsddsg <3

Khyaber Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2011
Thanks for your nice words. And I do enjoy the blabbering!

I finished this about a month after I started, though I definitely was not working on it every day. I'd say the background in it's entirety took about 8 days of working several hours a day and I don't remember how long the dragon took.

Might I also ask, do you have an old account, or an old gallery, anything at all? I'd love to see more of your stuff.

Your background is absolutely gorgeous and the dragon is both extremely detailed and highly dynamic. Your use of color and the near-photo realism of the landscape is incredible. My favorite parts have to be the clouds, the far right rock face in the back there, and the dragon's left back leg. I look forward to seeing more of your work! :eager:
