I would be truly honored if you would allow me to use this pic in a Dragon's secret lives montage video. If you would say yes I will compensate by putting your name, screen or real if you prefer, on the pic along with the credits, and the description with a link to your DA page next to it.

Really nice, and pretty unusual perspective.

Could use a tiny bit more detail (I'm a detail freak), but I'm still faving it.

This level of detail is what the commissioner paid for. I would have loved to do this with more, but oh well.

This is brilliant! :la: The landscape is just wonderfully bright and welcoming, and I particularly like the detail on the rocks and the flecks of warm colour on the water.

The dragon is just awesome! I love the light showing through the wing membrane :la: the design and the pose is great, too! That dragon looks rather relaxed, soaring over that waterfall :D An impressive piece of work indeed!

Oooh! I really love the composition on this! The dragon's pose looks excellent. The sun setting looks gorgeous. I think with the sun being that low the shadows should be more heavy though. I really love the distant flyers are dragons as well as opposed to birds.

Lovely piece, it really shows that you had fun with it!

I didn't want to drown out the colors. I started with more shadow, but it just looked way too dark.

Yeah that generally is the issue for sunsetty pictures :/ And I can definitely understand not wanting to make it too dark for a commission. I ono, maybe something to experiment with on your own time though :D

:heart: This looks so magnificent! That dragon's design is so well designed. I love the fur at the end of its tail tip and on its cheeks. The spikes and the wings are lovely looking. <3 I love the warm colors on this picture in the background. The water looks excellent! : D Thank you for making this look so gorgeous, I love it!

You're welcome. Send me your email and I'll send the full size without the watermark. You are free to keep the dragon design as a character, alter it or whatever. It's all yours. ^_^
