Sonja Red, the she-devil with a sword from Marvel comics!
(A surprise birthday gift for Nekow)

I owe him for some pretty sweet birthday gift art last year. You should check out his stuff!

His birthday isn't technically until the 18th of January, but I couldn't help but post it early. xD
Don't run off and spoil the surprise! I want him to find it himself!

Enjoy, guys!

What a scenery.

I have to complain about the fact that this hasn't been front paged yet. Don't worry, I'll go yell at Tom Fulp. :D

Anyways, this does indeed deserve an award because of the incredible amount of detail, and all that jazz. The only thing I would change is the dragon's head. I can imagine that beast just standing up and its head would still look slightly awkward. What I mean is that if you compare this to other dragons, you would notice that there isn't anything like a horn to make it resemble more like a dragon. Most dragons have something like that since it would cover a bit of the crow on the far right side of this art. It doesn't have to be a horn, it could also be long scales.

I also love the background. I can see the details of the dead trees, the sun, etc. It really builds the mood in this.

And now, for the verdict.

Detail: 9/10
Again, the head would be perfect if it had that horn thingy near its right eye. But what do I know about dragons, well done.

Color: 5/5
I like the nice use of red in this art. Good show, ma'am.

Shading: 5/5
Not a spot looks like the same shading. This alone just adds to the detail. Well done.

Overall: 9/10 and 5/5. I expect more greatness from you, Sabtastic!

Good day.

Yay!! Thanks, man!
Always makes my day when I get a good solid review outta somebody. :B 'Preciate it!

After reading your explanation, I totally agree with you on that extra horn / long scales detail. I think if I were to have extended the image to be wider or include more of the head, I would have picked up on the missing detail sooner. I usually draw dragons that way, too. Looks weird without some kind of a mane or crest. Thanks for the pointer!

Again, thanks for the great review!

Another epic win...

Great job Sab, I really liked the crows around that makes the image so vivid but brings me a question: how long has she been posing like that since crows are already looking for a lizardy dinner? XD Not really, hehehe, congratulations it is an amazin piece.

Sabtastic responds:

Hahahaha! Yeah... That's a good point.

Mind you, I can't blame her for sitting there and waiting for her photo-op. Wouldn't you want a souvenir snapshot after taking down a dragon too? xD

... Yeah, other than that I've got nothin'. Maybe her sword got stuck. haha

What I love about early gifts..

You can never predict what you'll get and I sure didn't expect this awesome piece to land in my inbox at DA!
I simply can't criticize a gift in any way. Love the colouring, the atmosphere, the pose, the "comic bookish" feel, the possible story behind it (dragons are always a plus in my book!).
Now pardon me while I plan my retort to this piece of awesomeness. Game on!
