Commission for HolyDevil. :D

Loved this concept. Gave me a chance to practise a wide range of techniques and play with my favourite colours. :heart:

Thanks!

Can't take credit for the idea though. I was only commissioned to draw this! ^_^

Nice job with the under water scape!
Don't often think to put a dragon hunting in the water ;p

I like the colors of the picture, the details of the foreground and slightly blurry and light blue colors of water in the background.

You catched the dragon in movement very well :) The dragon looks so smooth - I actually prefer smooth skin over heavy "armour" of scales. Dragon's hands catched my attencion too - very nicely drawn.

This is so pretty ;_; My heart is crying at how beautiful this is. The fishes are so well made and I especially love how you made the dragon (gosh, I love your dragons) following the fishies.
YOUR BACKGROUND, I CAN'T EVEN. So, so perfect. The coloring and lighting. I swear I'm gawking at this picture.

Plus, why waste the money when the program still works? It can be used on more important things lol

Indeed. The program is almost 10yrs old, but it still works. 8D;

lol I wouldn't wanna spend another $100+ or anything on a program I already have. People who already own it really shouldn't need to buy it again, it just doesn't seem fair.

Oooh, your backgrounds...your wonderful backgrounds!
I actually don't really know what to say, it's so...well captured! It really does look like an underwater picture and it's not difficult picturing the next movement of the dragon! 8D
I also love the calm atmosphere...the pretty blues and how the stones fade in!
The shape of the dragon - great! Great capture of movement! The poor fishies won't stand a chance. D:
The face looks wonderful and the yellow features also look slightly glowing...? At least that's what I see. XD

Fantastic work my dear! Just as always! :hug: :D

Your backgrounds are amazing, they're so realistic and detailed. The character looks great too, though the tip of the right wing bends a bit oddly. Not a huge mistake, the background and the composition doesn't draw much attention to it.
oh and I want to second the comment about the flow of motion, the pose and the fish really do work well (:

So...ask the designer of the character; not me. ;)
I was only doing what was asked of me - this is a commission and doesn't reflect any of my personal designs or ideas.

Thanks.
