    The foreshortening on the red dragons right leg doesn't quite work for me... or, it kinda melts in with the rest of him, it does not pop out.. really like the dinousar-look of them though!

    I really think the red dragon's line art needs some work.

    His body in general just looks rather odd in its shape. I cant seem to find his left arm, Does he have one?

    Also his left wing looks Realllly small compared to his body. it looks like he couldn't even lift his weight off the ground with them.

    Other than the line art, the colouring is SUPERB. I really like the battle wounds on the creatures. ^_^ good job.

    Past Tense of "draw" is "drawn"

    Whoever asked if it has a left arm, these are wyverns so they don't have arms. Those are legs. I can grant the small wings if foreshortening makes them smaller for being farther away.

    The main problem has to do with what's lost when switching from line art to painted image - much of the depth was lost. The color palette is good, but you need more contrast, and it's tricky, because certain parts of the red dragon's skin need to meld from light in one area to dark in another. Neither dragon seems to have any real light source. If they're outside, where's the sun? Especially, making the upper part of the red dragon's tail light and the bottom dark would really make it stand out. Also, the torn flesh is confusing in color, because the red of the wound is identical to his skin tone. Make the skin lighter and the wounds darker.

    First off I love the design and I like the whole concept of the composition you have working here and the detail is quite amazing. I understand the lost of depth you are talking about and I feel that if you push the contrast with the shadows more it would help get that back. Especially around the red wyvern's right leg, inside his mouth and the left wing where it meets his body just below the head but there just a tad. Also the tail on the red wyvern looks a little funky in it's perspective and the structure just below the bulbous stinger, makes it feel like it is going to fall off from sheer weight and not the injuries. The yellow wyvern although looks more like a dragon dinosaur his left leg has some unusual foreshortened perspective. I think it might look better if it was coming more directly towards the viewer. Lastly from the light sources that I am seeing shouldn't there be a cast shadow on the snow from the red wyvern? I feel that if you put a cast shadow there it would add more depth to the background.

We take in information from the world around us and intuitively re-order it into something new. Something is not created from nothing but simply transformed from what was before.

    I would say that the best spot for the cast shadow would be on the snowbank just between the wyverns so that it is falling behind. Try the shadow with just a light but near grey blue that way it doesn't over dominate the scene but at the same time adds to the realism.

    I find that tree stump in the back to be a bit distracting. The focal point is obviously the dragons's heads, but then it's kind of interrupted by this out-of-place stick. I think if you covered it up with more snow or got rid of it completely it would be better.
    But fantastic job on the scales and teeth!

    Well you could put some forced atmospheric perspective on it, it would make it look farther away but at the same time make it less distracting I think. I did that once with a piece of fan work I did myself of Wakko Warner.

    While it is a bit unrealistic at times I have found that some time it can work to the advantage of the piece. However with such a small bit of your piece and considering it is a snow scene it might just do the trick.
