hey pauloricardo, thanks for your feedback! i appreciate it. and I kind of agree with you. I was trying to hide some of the creature to make it seem a little more mysterious, But i think it might come off as laziness in creature design lol. thanks for your input!
Yes it does have a very dreamlike felling to it. One of my favourite feeling of all time. : D. Whimsical with a hint of melancholy. Anyway, aside from the technical aspects such as rendering, composition of values, etc, I must come out and say that the piece is very creative. It seem too perfect for the cover of a children's book. in my opinion you nailed the mood with a creative design. And I actually like the simplicity of the dragons design, which seems appropriate within the context, although it definitely needs detail. With fundamentals applied, this would be an amazing piece. I would suggest you devout some time to learning more fundamentals so that you can capture the audience, both, with concept/design and beautiful technical rendering.
Hey NesanJanan Thanks for your feedback I really appreciate it. And I agree, I tend to ignore the rendering aspect and get impatient with detail. I need to work on that.
So this is quite a bit different than the last one. It's an oil painting I just finished. I would love any and all feedback any of you may have.
This one drove me crazy. It's my first full color painting, usually I just stick to one or two colors, so this kind of gave me a headache.
I was commissioned to paint that first digital painting as an oil painting, so this is that. This version only took me about 50 hours longer lol. I think it turned out better than the digital one did though. This is about 16 x 20 inches.

I was commissioned by a NASA employee to paint two cornhole boards (for anyone who doesn't know what cornhole is, its a really popular game in the states with two big boards that have a hole in them that you throw stuff into. so yeah) and this is the first one. I painted it in oil paints. It's 2 by 4 ft. So its really big... Sorry the pictures are such bad quality, I need to get a real camera and varnish the painting so it doesn't look so weird.
