Oh my goodness! You wonderful person! You actually did NOT give a reptilian character breasts!

"

...I love you for being anatomically correct, and not throwing in random sex in this work, for no reason. =) (the "Wild Side" one you did uses a sexual theme for a purpose, which is nice)

 

**Seriously though, I have just seen a few of your works a number of minutes ago, and it is incredible that you do all of this in a traditional medium, especially as an aspiring artist. Also, how long does it take you to do these, on average? Or at a rough number of hours, for this one? Lastly, you should check out this DeviantArt user, if you like very good fantasy art (if you do not know him already): nebezial.deviantart.com

 

Many professional digital artists do not even match your prowess with oils, which is quite a feat indeed. =)

Very nice, I like how she kind of looks vulnerable even though she's a dragon.

I have no idea why I love this so much. It's one of the coolest, most original things I've ever seen. Maybe it's the epic pose, the dragons in the background, or the wings over her ears. Everything is done in such detail, but not in overkill. The shading is perfect. I love the shapes of the horns and the human face and hand.

This is amazing beyond description. There is nothing more I can say to express how awesome I think this is.
Good work and congrats on the DD! :D

this comment might b a little weird, but thank you for not giving her boobs... I hate when people give reptile-people boobs... it doesn't make sense, and you did a fine job displaying female traits without it.

The first thing I noticed was the absence of breasts and I really like that. It's different and I love that you didn't rely on them to show femininity.

Her face is beautiful and the elegance of her hand and wrist make her feel so regal. <3

This was on the cover of the Dragon Con 2012 program, wasn't it? :D The whole day we were there I couldn't stop staring at it- you did a really fantastic job, and I don't mean that lightly. The concept and detail are just phenomenal.
