Ahhhhh I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to comment on this! Shame on me!

This came out SO so well though!  I'm definitely bummed that you didn't give me any thumbnails to pick from beforehand, but it's mostly because I wanted to take them and expand upon them myself, so I can think for myself haha.  I do like how this came out though.  And as a gigantic lover of crazy colors, it's a fun change of pace to get something a little more muted and realistic!  I love those shots of purple you used in the sky.  They go really well with that fun muted teal.  It looks really cloudy wherever he is.  I can relate <__<.  I like the way the background is teal and eventually dances up to be green like that.  And I love the creepy little two-dimensional sheep ahaha.  They remind me of the little sheep in the first few Spyro games.  Which is fitting since Denali is a dragon as well <__<. 

And Denali turned out well!  I LOVE how feral and draconic his face is!  And I love all his crazy pointy spines!  And it was a nice touch to make the underside of his wings blue instead of black! I also like the kind of natural way you rendered his scaling instead of the orderly plating he's usually got.  The natural look is neat!  The way you shaded his mane is awesome as well!  He looks so neat!

I'd love the full size of this when you have the chance.  Thanks for the commission! :heart:

Red and green, scales and fleece, big and small. Nice contrasts, and I love the circular composition. Where was that center of focus again? ;) Well done, and definitely not by accident.

Awesome and very dynamic work. I like the colors and the sketchy look of the ground. A slightly different perspective would have given it a more definite look like the dragon is darting down to catch himself a dinner. Gotta love the details on him though, those scales are spectacular.

The dragon looks awesome, but I think if the sheep were bore than white blobs it would better. I get that the dragon's the main focus, but otherwise I personally think it looks unfinished and a bit messy.

Not trying to be rude here, sorry if I was! It's a great picture overall.

I particularly like the neck and the inner wing area. Kick ass, as usual! I always look forward to your new work to see how you handle lighting and contrast. =]

This is outstanding! When I clicked full view, I literally said "Woah holy crap!" out loud. I love the details, especially on the dragon's beard and his hind feet. The pose shows a lot of motion which works really well, and I love the colors you used on the inside of the wings. It gives the impression of light somewhat coming through the thin membrane -- I don't know if you meant for that, though you probably did, because this painting shows that you obviously have a respectable knowledge and feel for lighting and color theory. I also love how you put just enough but not too much detail into the background, so that it doesn't outshine the character. I think the only critique I'd have, if you don't mind one, is the detail on the sheep, especially the one where you can see its legs. It looks a little rushed, mainly because of the legs, but it isn't an eyesore and overall, I think you've created an amazing piece here.
