You may not believe me when I say this, but you have somehow captured exactly a dragon character of mine. I don't know how you did it, but you've got the expression and everything down so perfectly, it's almost scary. The only thing is that my dragon is pitch black and has yellow eyes...but still. It was awesome to see this.
It is easily seen that you have put in a tremendous amount of effort. Not only the effort you put in during the making of this piece, but also all your experiences and what you learnt during your journey as an artist. The realistic type of painting isn't easy to accomplish, and I want to say that it's beautiful. I want to also say "Congrats!" for producing and completing such a magnificent piece.
