...Fro took all of the things I had to say, dammit...
Well, I'd better not read too much of his review before I end up simply retirating what he says. D:
...Yeah I really like this art piece, and I can't find many things wrong with it, which is why it gets a 10/10!
The colours are awesome. Perfect colour for the sky, for the snow, and for the dragon, although I think maybe the dragon's colour was a tad bit on the bright side. Could just be me, though. There wasn't really much shading, but I liked the shading you did under the dragon. When it comes to the texture, I was extremely impressed by the texture of the trees, particularly the one on the left. Still, the dragon lacked texture. It had no scales or anything, which made it a little bland to look at, especially since it's supposed to be the main focus of the picture.
The concept is pretty original. I haven't ever heard of a dragon living in snow before, and I also liked the contrast you managed to achieve with the humour and the dramatic/mighty part of this picture. We all know dragons are depicted as mighty and powerful beings, yet the fact that you added the hat on top of the dragon's head and you added a snowman next to him gave the picture a touch of humour to it.
As for the detail in the picture, I think this could do with a bit more detail, since it seems as if you could put more into it, such as more trees, some more animals, maybe an igloo somewhere in the distance or some rocks and stuff, etc... As it is now it feels a bit empty, as if there should be more to it. Also, the snowman next to the dragon (which I suppose was intended to make the dragon look huge) was a good idea, but the fact that the trees are even bigger than the dragon makes the dragon look weird inbetween the snowman and trees, so either those trees are massive or the snowman is just tiny, which was strange.
The background to this was great, and I liked how you made the picture sort of trail off into the distance, plus the grey sky was a very nice touch. What I'll complain about would be the dragon's pose. At first I thought it was sleeping because the eyes are so small (BTW, you should make the eyes a bit bigger :P) that only in full screen did I notice that they were indeed open and not closed, and then I thought it was drinking the water. I think you should try and make the pose you were going for look a bit obvious, because I'm not sure whether it's resting, drinking or has its tongue stuck on the ice and can't get it off.
In general this is an awesome art piece, with an original concept and some really nice textures and colours. If I had to fix anything, it'd be the lack of scales/texture on the dragon, the dragon's strange pose and the weird snowman/trees. Keep up the great work!
