Yes sir, a job well done

I think the guy below has some wack OCD, his criticism holds no water.

This has some real nice colouring, a balanced mix of soft and hardas well as a professionally restricted colour palette. The lighting is perfect for my standards, it's necessary for the dude to be visible. One fat problem is that the dude has a big head which throw proportions out, making his hands and torso undersized. Unless I'm really comfortable, I put a reference pic right beside my dude. Do that! Also, the less detail (wrinkles) you can get away with in the hands, the better they look. Unless you want old-man hands. As for the dragon, it's kind of a shame the wing tears are so pixely, it'd look much nicer if you smoothed the eraser marks. There, some constructive criticism. Well done.

Thanks for the review guys. It's nice getting mixed comments. I tried different things in this pic and as a result. This took way longer than it should have. I have things I like such as the fire coming out of the chest and the blue highlights on the dragon and the clothes, and of course things I hate looking at like the wings. Hopefully I can learn a few things from this pic and work on improving my work.

Yeah, I want one of those.

I was just thinking about what It would be like if everyone had some kind of supernatural power, like summon a dragon.
It looks great, but there's a few details that are bugging my OCD

The fog in front of the guy feels a bit un-nessicary.

Also, where the fabric in the dragon's wings touches the background, it lacks a bit of depth. It makes it seem like if the wings are brushing up on a wall.

The lighting seems a bit too bright for the light source. The light appears to come from the dragon/wrym's chest, but the light also appears to come from the ground below. It's not as noticable, but like I said, I have OCD when it comes to this kind of thing, most of the time.

Critisism aside, I like your work, I hope to see more out of it, and good luck!
