I finally finished this !!! i've put a lot of work in this one i even did a background, thing i usually don't do. The scales were a real pain since it's the first time i try those kind of scales but it was worth it after all. I hope you will like it !^^
This charater is not mine
( I just noticed i forgot the marking on the front paws!!! omg sorry and yes he looks gray with the scan that killed all my shading when he's actually more black than grey >_<)
Her part that i absolutely love:

I just love it *_* Everything!
I told you that i love the pose. It seems that he really enjoys his flight.
And i totally fall in love with his face ^-^ So sweet and he looks so satisfied.

Great job with the anatomy. I like the back claws. They looks so strong ^.^ Thanks so much that you draw him with scales. You draw them very well even they were a pain to draw.
Also you did a great job with the wings. They're big, big enough to let him fly ;) I don't like dragons with small wings.
I think everything is said about the anatomy now. You've just a great style :3

The coloration is also very well done. It's so smooth but the colors are still very vivid. Great job with the light and shadings on the scales and the mane ;)
The mane seems very fluffy, i wanna touch it xD
Just one little advice; if you use more different colors for shadings it often looks better. You can use purple and blue for the shadings of red parts or black for the shadings of blue parts. :)
I hope you know what i'm trying to say ^^°

Also the background is well choosen ( thanks again that you did one, really appreciate it :3). My beloved clouds xD
I like how you draw them but you should add more shadows next time.

All in all it's just a great picture :D
Thanks so much for your part! :tighthug:
I hope i can finish my part today/tonight :3
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR

I would like to say that this dragon is awesome! The amount of detail you added to the dragon is amazing from scales to fur. The scales on the beast are done well and the fur shading is really good!

I'm going to ignore the background as the main focus is the dragon of course (but the background is actually nice :)) and there is only one thing that stands out to me so far.

The first, and only big issue I see is that the dragon's right wing is rather bent. Comparing it to the dragon's left wing which is actually done very nicely and in proportion you can tell that the right wing is bent and streched outwards from the body. The arm of the right wing should be very similar to how the left wing is done but it is pretty hard to explain fully without some form of red lining.

The other thing which isn't too much of a big deal is that I believe you should've been a little more brave and added more shadows to the dragons body as it looks quite bright everywhere. You did mention your scanner was playing up a little so I'll let you off on it if that is the case. ;)

The rest of the dragon seems perfectly fine to me, the colouring is very nice and vibrant and the dragon has many details to show, it must have taken a lot of time to be able to draw all those scales and bits of fur on the dragon. It was well worth it and I think the end result is lovely, good work! :D

Sorry, i forgot ^^

It's no problem that the markings are missing. You did all the other things of his design without a mistake. ^_^
And i can see that you put a lot of effort in this piece and this means a lot to me :3
Do you have the programm windows live photo gallery on your computer?
There you can make dark parts darker or bright parts brighter.
Maybe this will help you :D
