    Oh god, badass!
    I love the ice, one of my fav details on this is the icecle in front of her leg, with the dull red transparency. great work!

    Love the "smoke" effect on the head as well, very jellyfish like

    Thumbs up Verry nice.

    Some things should not be attractive, and yet...

    Well, besides that its all verry smooth, as if...as if, it was made of silk.

    awsome job.

    That is some gorgeous rendering. The scales and smoke are really well done. Very cool and eye catching concept. Even the tiny thumbnail grabs your attention.

    Question hmmm...

    Now that I think about it, this picture along with the name of the thread makes it look like it came from some deep thought, dose it have a story?

    wonderfull work, every thing seems to mesh well together together except for the head, you have these very organic elements i.e. body and the smoke coming from the head and then you plop on this very geometric tech looking head. just my two cents. amazing image though

    that's perfect! I love how you made ice, the red smoke and the hand of the alien, with a little "transparency" with light behind. Oh God... really awesome!

    I want to see the other characters!!!

    NICE! The refractions on the ice especially! I'm not sure if you could have given the skin/ scales a bit more hue variations...
    Anyways - great work!

    This looks awesome, but the scales kinda throw me off a bit, they looked furry at one point, maybe it's the lack of luster.

    My only issue is with her right hand, which appears to be resting on her hip or messing with her tail heh. Other than that, holy sheet, great work. I can't wait to see more from you.

    i have to take a different opinion than rocul, yes the scales do look more like fur then actual scales but it gives them a kind of raspberry texture, it makes it look soothing more than odd.

    amazing. the scale texture on her skin is interesting, rather soft. i agree with what other people are saying they're 'fur like'. all it really needs is harder edges and it would read better i think
    really excellent job. keep it up

    I love the skin. I would have made the head smaller but that's a personal preference not a crack at your proportions dragons by definition have pronounced heads by comparison. If I can ask why did you pick this?
