Only source used. See SBS.

Please view in High Res. (5 years and 1028 days ago)

The "pedestal" the dragon is sitting on lacks depth. Even in high res, the dragon appears to be floating, rather than sitting on it. The shading under the dragon is causing this, as you have dark shadows on his belly, but the pedestal is light colored. The diagonal light shining down from the upper LH corner compounds the inconsistency.

author says:

Edited! Decided I didn't need sleep and agreed with Mossy so did what I could ... it is now a vertical image and I have done work on the pedestal to make it stand out more ... part of the darkness on the bottom of the dragon is because is heating up
I don't have time to change the SBS but at least that way you can get an idea of what it looked like originally

Excellent work, terrific sbs too, nice to see the original in the sbs, I think the edited version is much better though... GL

avatar spaceranger

I agree the edited version is much better, puts greater emphasis on the dragon which is so well constructed! Definitely check out the high res!

Fabulous piece of work. Your SBS is amazing too. Work on a dragon is master piece. Great drawing but after that fantastic usage of the source image. This goes instantly to my favorites...very very well done

OUTSTANDING! Can really tell this took quite a bit of time and coffee to put together. Good Luck author.

author says:

Thank you so much everyone!
I almost didn't submit this one as I was running out of time and, yes, you are right Rod it took a lot of coffee!
This was something I have had in mind for a long time (I played with drawing the dragon a while ago and gave up); when I saw the seeds on the bun I felt it was time to go for it asI thought they would work quite well for the scales!
