The dragon is very well detailed and is the center of attention creating a visual flow with both its wings and flames that carry you around the entire piece. Smoke to the right along with the clouds act as a border to help frame the action within the shot. The colors choice also works extremely well putting warm and cool against each other for a wonderful contrast. The only downside is that the people aren't rendered out a bit more to get across even more of an emotional impact. If the people, and possibly the smoke and building on the right, were rendered out a bit more I would see it as being even more exciting and awe-inspiring. Overall I-G-N-I-T-I-O-N is an impressive piece with very few drawbacks.

Well as you probably already know (and you should) I do really love this picture. The sharpness of the dragon is stunning, not to mention all the lightsources and the reflections they create. Fire looks very realistic from the already burning to the still-being-breathed-fire, and the people in the fire is also a nice detail. Unlike the last critiquer, I don't really think it's a bad thing that the people aren't drawn in more detail - they are not the center of the attention, but you can still see their assumed age and the terror.

However, I am disappointed that in a such a stunning and detailed artpiece you neglegted the clouds! I know and understand that you were really tired after so many hours you spent on this, but it's little jarring how the clouds look like rough sketches compared to everything else.
Also, even though you fixed the further wall it still looks little crooked, but that's small detail and definately better than it used to be, and considering how beautiful the church is it's a small detail. The The city in the background could also be a bit too blurred. As you should know, when everything is marvelous you have to nitpick about the tiniest of things ;>

...Speaking of which, the "floor" or whatever I should call it creates a bit of optical illusion and crooks my eyes. I know it's perspective and really hard to pull of though! My advise would be to search a floor like that (cgtextures is a good bank for stuff like that), then use the Photoshop's perspective tool and paint over it to make your job easier :3

That aside, I love the two different light sources in this picture and how you've taken both in account. The blue light from the moon and red from the flames make a jarring difference - you start from the blue and everything is fine and dandy, you think nothing's wrong, and then BAM comes the fire, orange, red and terror.

Well in short I think this picture is in the end very well executed, gloriously painted and I will be forever in awe for your painting skills AND your patience to do so many things! I'm also glad that you're so open to try and do things like structures and backgrounds and such even though they are really hard!

Good job gurl~

On perinteiseen tapaan aika mahtis piirros! ^^
Mutta kysymys.. Lähtee tuo maalaatoistus irti maasta noiden liekkien voimasta?
Jos ei, niin sitten tän otuksen silmään toi maalaatoitus lähtee kuvan perspektiiviin nähden ylös kohti taivasta sen sijaan, että ne näyttäisi menemän vaakatasossa. oo
Pisti silmään, kun itelläki vastaavanlaisia perspektiivi mokailija tullu sarjista rajatessa. Tai siis lähinnä toteutunut kalansilmä efekti, vaikka en moinen ei ollut tarkoituksena toteutua... :'D

Olen joo mokannut sen lattialaatoituksen perspektiivin kanssa pahemmin tällä kertaa -___- Jos jaksan niin koprjailen sen heti kunhan muutto rumba on ohi mutta vielä ei ole aikaa koskeakkaan tuohon korjaus mielessä :/

Kiitos kommentistasi silti ^^

Voi mooses, mikä työ!! Ihanan loppuun asti harkittua ja kuvasta löytyy paljon uutta joka katsomalla! Koskettaa toi lapsia suojeleva hahmo :o Ja liekö kuinka harkittua, mutta tunnelmanvaihdos kuvassa on jännittävä! Varsinkin näin selaimella katottaessa, kun joutuu fullviewiä kelaan eestaas, että pääsee nautiskeleen yksityiskohista... Alhaalla kuvassa on hirvee kaaos, kuumat paikat ja ahistavaa, rullaa ylöspäin, niin löytää seesteisen yötaivaan, kylmät värit ja olo helpottuu. Sit taas alas, ylös, alas.... : D

Tää kuva on hulppeen hieno siitäkin syystä, että se kertoo tarinan! Ketjusta loharin kaulan ympärillä voi päätellä menneitä ja tilanteesta täl hetkel saakin aika hyvän kuvan ja voi vain arvuutella, miten käy esimerkiksi juuri tuon portaille pysähtyneen perheen(?)...

Ainoa, mikä ehkä itselläni pistää silmään on, ettei lohikäärme tunnu painavalta. Se ei näytä todella olevan kattoa vasten, ihan kuin se vain leijuisi siinä päällä juuri ja juuri koskettamatta :/ Yritin keksiä, mistä se voisi johtua ja veikkaus on, että katon pitäisi taipua enempi tollaisen möllin painosta ja vaikkei niinkään, niin ainakin lohharis on liikaa kirkkaita ääriviivoja. Ääriviivat aina eristää hahmon taustasta. Vaikka kuinka valo häikäsisi, niin loharin oikeessa tassussa, vasemmas olkapääs ja kaulas on ehkä liian kirkkaat ääriviivat. Ja mikä tuota kattoa valaisee vasemman etutassun vieressä? Siihen olisi ehkä luontevampaa saada varjo, jotta lohari vois sulautua siihen.
Leijuntaa saattaa aiheuttaa myös katon liekit vasemman takatassun vieressä. Ovat ehkä liian yksityiskohtaiset ja täten sekavat. Näyttää kuin takatassussa olisi yksi varvas lyhyempi ja koko jalka vaan leijuu...

Työ on kuintenkin onnistunut, koska se sai jopa mut tuijotteleen ja analysoimaan sitä näinkin pitkäksi aikaa!! Sitä ei tapahdukaan kovin usein :)

Kiitos palautteesta ja sait minut todella miettimään hahmon painoa :O olet oikeassa. koitin kovasti miettiä että mikähän tässä kuvassa tekee tuosta loharista niin painottoman näköisen, mutta siepä sen sanoit. Rakennuksessa itsessään mulla oli niin paljon hankaluuksia jo muutenkin etten sitten kai vain jaksanut alkaa ajatellemaan mahdollisuutta että vika olisi siinä mutta väärässä olin :3

Kiitos ihanasta palautteesta ja rakentavasta. toivon että voin jatkossa keskittyä näihin ongelmiin paremmin :D

Oi otit ihanasti palautteen vastaan! :> Ja näit vielä sen, mitä tarkotin! Harkitsin pitkään, miten kirjoitan asiani niin, että saan asian ilmaistua selkeästi ja ettei toinen ota kritiikistä itteensä. Toisaalta, kun on jo noin korkeella levelillä taidoissaan, niin ehkei enää pikkuininät juuri liikuta ;>

Hihi sullon vielä varaa kehittyä täydelliseksi, kunhan vain et anna itsesi mennä siitä, mistä aita on matalin!
