3-1/2 hours of work is like half as much time as I spend on gimp trying to edit the 40 min drawings I do, and they're not even as good =[
This is unfair because that means I work 7 hours and 40 min total and produce maybe a third of the quality of this, man you're a jerk... but good so now I'm depressed.
I like this a lot, great detail in the painting... the only thing that I didn't like was the back of the dragon.. it kind of disappears and leaves a little bit of readability issues. just for future reference, try to think of the character in a bunch of different position that might help to creating the anatomy. Hope you don't take offense, just trying to help a fellow artist out. :)
3 1/2 hours? I couldn't even manage something a quarter that good in 3 1/2 years....
You managed THAT...
... in three and a half hours? *twitch*
It's so gorgeous, the flow of the lines, the texture of his skin, and I especially like how smooth you made his horns. The only thing that feels slightly off is the skin on his upper back across his shoulders. The line where his right arm meets his torso looks a little out of place somehow, and the direction that the scales twist in looks a little at odds with the flow of the rest of the image.
That's only a tiny thing though, other than that it's beautiful. :)
