Really like the latest water dragon! =)
Mmm, only thing I would maybe say at the moment is to maybe paint in a background.. if you want.. like just a basic one for now, as the white is really harsh against the poor dragon.. sometimes it's better to start a basic background first onto which you paint/draw the subject.. so you get an idea of how the colours are bouncing around.. =)
You could suggest one using a round, soft brush (hardness 0%, spacing 7%, opacity 100%, pen pressure OFF size [no size variation in other words] in Photoshop), brush like two colours into one another in like a swirling effect, here, done an example for you to follow.. sorry it's a bit crappy.. but hope you get the idea.. =)
Keep well bro. =)
Kungfoowiz: thanks my friend you are the best to give me like this tip.

Hello Rafid. Is Rafid your surname, or name?
#238 - strange lookin' creature.
Kungfoo gave you some
good tips about the background.
Good dragon ideas. If you want to get
more inspired, try to find some 'Heroes of Might
and Magic dragons' in google images.

Hey i like te dragon concepts in #241 & #242. Little more shadow under the arm of the 'water dragon' wold be great but its just a small thing.
Those dragon sketches look great. especially the leftmost one. Hope youll be painting it later.
Well good luck mate. Will visit later to see your progress.

new update sad love monster story from my imagination
The new water dragon looks improved. It reminds me of a sea horse.
Here's some inspiration:
Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!
Kungfoowiz: Thanks for your comment my friend the story uncomplete wait until finish
extra addition for the water dragon
The last piece is looking good. Just a small suggestion; Instead of using an analogous color harmony try using a subtle hint of yellow to the highlights (complement) so the overall color contrast would be high and the image will start to look much more interesting. I have done a very rough overlay paint to explain myself. I have added few strokes randomly on the seabed as well.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
P.S. try this link when you dealing with color schemes. You may find it useful.
Parsakoira: Thanks man for your comment , your artwork the best
devastacio: Thank you very much for your help, you always give me the great tips
that help me to improve my artwork.
hey man nice updates you are still working really hard!
I have one crit for you. Perhaps you did the background on a different layer? the dragon looks completely separate from the backing layer, and when you look at an object there are always hard and soft edges. I just took any image from google images and marked on some places where you can see hard and soft edges (high and low contrast).
I hope it is clear from this that for something to seem a part of its environment/background it needs varying edges.
Hey Qlotzan.. =)
Yip, pretty much what Thomas said about shape edges, also you may want to consider brushing in some shadows on the dragon's belly as the light from above wouldn't reach much beneath it, so I just brushed some shadow colour in from the sea bottom. Also put some light sea colours onto the top of the dragon's skin.. hope that helps even though I suck at painting.. =)
long time for new update i tried few days ago to do some practicing about the skin tone
this is one of my practicing in skin tone
I noticed that you were away for a while.
Good skin tone practice. Try to experiment
with some different brushes on your next one.
