Artwork Description

This is a painting I did based off a pencil drawing. I mainly look at this piece as an experiment. For the most part just trying out some different techniques and what not. I spent a long time working on it. Definitely above 30 hours. Some areas I think are successful, while others at least helped me figure out problems I can work on. Content-wise I think there are some elements that could be seen as a little cliche', but it'll do for the purpose of this painting.

i absolutely love the picture. although it made me laugh when i first saw it because it looked as though the dragon was oggling her massively endowed chest. i love the shadows on her face ((needless to say the dragon is ephing awesome)) and the detail in the background is breathtaking

I have spent the last few weeks doing nothing but copying art off the internet and I must say if I was well off I'd get a framed picture of every one of your increadible pieces of artwork. An experiment I dont think so. The background is perfect, its pleasing to the eyes but dosnt quite catch your attention as much as the Dragon and Elf do. I think if you took a poll as to which people look at the most, the dragon or the elf it would be close to a tie. Your works are breaktaking and definatly going under a folder titled my favorite artist. Please keep me informed of all your works and success, may you become a household name Derek.

Hey Uwe, thanks for commenting. I really appreciate it. Also, thanks for your reply on Painter as well. I noticed those watercolors were trying to kill my little computer. lol. I'm definitely gonna have to get a bigger machine. Anyways, thanks for the wonderful compliments. I'll make sure to keep a look out for some more of your awesome work. Thanks.
