Background was used from another pxleyes contest I didn't qualify for. Both the boat and the dragon were made with the pencil shaving source. (5 years and 1800 days ago)
SBS reveals that you properly used this contest's image to create the dragon and boat [cool!] which was then inserted into another contest image as the background. But the reflection is wrong (dragon is covering top two thirds of tower which should then be perfectly reflected in the water). Plus, what is illuminating the inside edges of the boat?
The dragon is pretty nice...but I almos find it disappointing that the background is just another pxleyes entry. :/ Would've been nice if you could have made your own or found a more original image.
Nice work author
Thanks everyone for the comments, I really appreciate it! @DanLundberg, I originally didn't have the dragon reflection because that exact reason. Not really sure why I added it in. Maybe because there was a lack of something in the lower right of the picture? I plan on removing it now. The edges of the boat are supposed to be illuminated from the fireball. @gamemastertips, Sorry I disappointed you with the background. Originally the idea was to use the background image for the other contest. While working on it I realized I didn't qualify for that contest. So here we are.
Ohhh wait a sec...the background is YOUR work? Okay okay I see now...a more detailed SBS would have cleared up my confusion then...I thought you had taken the work from another person. But I understand now; so great job!
Really i like this image i think in this contest u win...
Al d best
The inside edge of the boat nearest the dragon would be in shadow. Nice job making the boat from the source.
nice job.... ...... loves the boat very much... ...... all the best to u ..........
Thanks CMYK, edited with more shading.
The reflection of the dragon not being there throws it off alittle for me, IMO.... Very nice scene and it is a good entry!!
Edit: Sorry, the reflection is there... just alittle high.

Supplied source used.
High Resolution better. (5 years and 1800 days ago)
while it is pretty to look at, it honesty could have been made from anything. These images are very repetitive ive noticed....
The only part that really stands out as part of the source link are the wings of the bird, thats it pretty much...
Author your unique style. Good luck
Fantastic work author...bird is perfect...gl
very very cool
besides i noticed that all of ur works usually relate to birds
look like ur big fan of "bird-family"
just kidding XD
beautiful job as always......... all the best .........
Only one external source used (5 years and 1798 days ago)
Clever idea. Well done!
Very good entry!
Very creative and curious idea.
Very creative, but the butterflies/moths look flat, not three-dimensional. Some Burn Tool on the bodies and refinement of the shadows falling on the background (different parts of the moth would be different distances from the background and thus would cast a slightly different shadow) would help. A stick pin through each moth might add to the realism.
Hi, everyone!Â¨Thanks for the comments!
I didn't want to touch the original texture much but, you're right, some things should be improved. I uploaded it and decided to see what the others would have to say . I appreciate your suggestions and, yes, burn tool just might be the best solution for the "fake" inner shadows. i will try to improve that part!
And as for the pins- sorry, i just couldn't! ))) I made the pins and in the end decided not to use them, I couldn't stab the poor creatures!
Great idea author,i like your different approach to this contest...well done
I made some changes! DanLundberg, thanks again for the suggestions- burn tool really did do the trick (I don't think I use it nearly as often as I should ). I did my best to achieve a more 3D effect and I think it looks better. I also used both burn and dodge tool to add the same effect to the frame. Then i added some smudges to the background and to the tags- i thought it should be older!
Anyway, I appreciate your inputs! Thanks!
i like it !!!!
I think there's some more depth now. BTW if you create a selection beforehand, that constrains where your burning occurs so you can easily get hard lines between burned and unburned areas..
Congrats...this is really really cool work...
