a very commanding lizard!
I literally gasped when I saw this piece. I love the juxtaposition of the traditional knight outfit with the dragon, and the slight angle upwards is particularly well done. Can I ask if there's any particular reason you cheated the dragon more towards the left/bottom part of the canvas?
Cheers LauraBR for the nice feedback!
Ah yeah, I initially wasn't going to put that gust of sand/dust there, but I wanted the image to have some dynamism in it (I am a big fan of using dust smoke and sand in my images). Also I felt that it would serve the composition much better if I obscured the lower part of the armor as such as to move the attention more towards the upper half of the image where the important bits are (of course the contrasting green color of the characters head and the shine of the armor already do a lot of work in that aspect). And of course I wanted to slightly show the stormy past of this person who has most likely had to kill more than a few people who they did not want to, but were forced to because of the influence of the sword itself.
