Pardon me for faving and running yesterday!
I really enjoyed this piece. I'm quite a fan of dragons, and so when I saw this scene, and the relationship that these two apparently have, it made me feel warm and fuzzy inside. The pose, expressions and layout of the overall piece feel really natural, and I'd love to hear what the dialogue would be between the two characters.
There's some funny perspective things going on with your background. Some of the trees. The stream. But its not anything jarring enough to take the viewer out of the moment.
A very very nice concept. Keep up the good work!
