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!

Thanks! I'm glad you like the details and textures, they were really fun to do with this one...especially the wings and horns 8D

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! <:

Gosh this is gorgeous!

As usual, the detail is stunning and I love the wonderfully soft shading and interesting pose! :la:

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!

My god, what have you done ?
FFFF Ganjja is A-W-E-S-O-M-E ! My eyes, they're dried, I can't close them D8
I can't believe how it turned out, you've done such a Pure and outstanding artwork <3 I loooove the groove ! I mean, how you've make the skin O__O
Your choise with this pose is a good idea because I love to see Ganjja to the side of its ventral wings~ Black and AMAZING <333
I want to say more and more but I just can't because of my poor vocabulary D: but I'm just in LOVE with this drawing <3

Thank you so much :hug: and I'm glad you like his design : D
