Thank you for the nice compliments...

I love this so much. Your details and body structures are excellent. Honestly, I don't see why you want to paint it, but I'm sure it will look great. I wanna see it painted too.

Hey, just stopped in from Bitfrost- All I can say is- Stunning!! I always love good pencil work, and it's my favorite medium to work in. Check me out in Elfwood gallery 494

Thanks, the colored version is almost done , have not had any time for my own stuff lately...

Thanks Carina, good to hear from you, the colored version should be much clearer and easier to make out...

The girl and the dragon have a wonderful 3d quality. I especially like the shadows the hair casts on her chest - to often such small details are forgotten. Smile

My only crit would be the snout - is it in front of the girl? Or is the dragon fusing with her? I can't recognize it, but maybe my brain is to slow today. ^^

But it's a VERY beautiful image.

Beautiful work! The background looks so simple but your use of soft lines and hard lines makes it so interesting to look at. What type of paper do you use?

Guest's picture

Fantastic Piece! (Fellow Bifrost member.) Love the contours. Reminiscent of Vallejo! Lovely, Lovely Work!
