Eeeee...pretty dragon beastie!!! This really does look awesome, ad I just love the way you're able to combine darker colors with sudden bright ones. Well done, good sir! You have truly proven yourself to be the master of dragons once again.

Yay, thankyou, I'm glad you like it! :la:
Lol, combining dark colours with bright ones is particularly tricky and I never know if I'm doing it in a way that looks right, but I'm glad you approve here! C:
Thanks again <3 C:

Sure thing dude! It's just so great to see you back and making such awesomsauce art :nod:. And I know what you mean about how combining dark colors and bright ones is tricky...if you don't do it right it ends up looking really wonky (X_X). But do it right, as you did here, and it looks awesome!!!

Totally cool! :D Really awesome texturing all over this piece, like with the wing membrane and the horns. Those bits of wrinkling in the skin also are neat touches of detail to the whole thing. It looks fantastic!

yay its done!
the shading is lovely and realistic. makes that chest area look sexeh. love the attention to details you have going on. the curve of the out stretched wing is appealing. i have to say the shading on the tail spikes is my favorite

Yay! C:
It was more or less finished for a few days before it was uploaded, but I kept coming back to it and changing things x.x Darn that artist's indecision.
I'm really glad you like the shading, I swear it took longer trying to make sure everything was smooth and looking right than it does rendering scales XD The wing membranes were a slight pain, thought I'd try a more realistic bat-wing texture than just the scribble-detail I used to do but...not sure what happened.
But anyway, thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it! <:

Thank you! C:
I'm glad you like it, the shading took longer than I thought it would trying to get everything "perfect" but that's just because I'm a pedantic ninny. And I'm glad you like the pose, thought I'd try something different :dummy:
Thanks again!

You're welcome XD
(Haha no worries, sorry for the late reply in return!)
I don't mind complex designs if the design is actually good XD But the sparkly overdesigned eyesore abusive-to-colour-theory characters can be a little silly sometimes :3

Once again, thanks for commissioning me, yay! <3

No worries :dummy:
Haha, yes, exactly D: And nooooo Ganjja doesn't look like them at all, the fact that he's mostly dark coloured balances out the brighter markings :D Seriously he looks great, I think if he was bright pink then he might look a little silly, but as he is he looks fine XD

Eeek, thanks so much! :icontarddanceplz: I'm really glad you like the anatomy :lol:
Haha, I wouldn't recommend you using it as reference though, there's a tonne of much better stuff out there like photos of real reptiles and other animals XD My art's far from perfect and I wouldn't want you to copy any of my mistakes! :C
