I dont know what to say, I've been through alot while making this, and at the last bit, I've pulled so many one nighters, was on cold turkey, and on drugs... and so on... had a boyfriend and broke up, so many emotional instances that gave me/took power to work on this...

Originally, this is supposed to be Deathwing from World of Warcraft: Cataclysm without it's armor...

Overall the total span was half a year, 410~ pure work hours.

Yeah... there are still small mistakes, please forgive me, but I'm calling this done...

It brings fear into me thinking about it, but where are his/her brothers/sisters?
by this i mean -Ice dragon, earth dragon, air dragon, and a ice dragon-
elmental dragons if you could draw these then you would be a pro but some people do not see you through as a pro but right now I do :D
good work.

This right here is probably the greatest example of pixel art available! An absolute masterpiece that is nothing less than perfect. 1000/5! Truly, this is 110% magnificent! Myself being someone who has just recently gotten involved in making pixel art this is a great inspiration to me. Seeing things like this gives me more motivation in my work. Keep up the fantastic job!

Why anyone would give this anything under a 5 is BEYOND me. The amount of work that has been put in this is simply ASTRONOMICAL. At first, I thought this was a painting. Then I started seeing halftone patterns and looked off to the side. Sure enough, pixel art. I have never mistaken pixel art for a digital painting. Fooled the hell out of me. The lighting in this is so smooth and the subtle bloom affect from the flames and the lava is flawlessly executed. Even the clouds in the sky is leaving me baffled. Anyone who has tried their hand at pixel art should have even the slightest idea of the limitations and intricacies in creating anything anywhere near this level of mastery. This is, hands down, the best pixel art I have ever laid eyes on. Well done.

A fiery and fearful image of a dragon mounted on his throne of stone in a field if fluid lava. It's a speaking picture, grim and bright and incredibly detailed. Just look at all those scales! There's detail in everything here. The background. The dragon. The dark and light. It all melts into a fluid masterpiece. Great work!
