Very nice piece. Your dragon has such a cool look to it. I agree that it may be a little too saturated in comparison to the rest of the piece. But this is stellar work (yes, I said stellar). How do you reference dragons? Do you look at all sorts of reptiles and Chinese hand scrolls and then combine them into something new. Dragons have always been a weakness for me. This has become my new favorite piece from you. Thanks!

Can't say I'm a big fan of the colors, but overall it's great quality man. Just what I'd expect from you =P

I like this most than your previous cover, the pose of the king is awesome, the details are all in the right places and it reads so well!
One crit is that the dragon's green is well.. far too consistent all over. I always imagine they have subtle shades of other colors like lizards in RL.

To everyone with compliments, thank you very much.
To everyone who critiqued, I agree with all of you. Some things you pointed out were concious decisions, some were things I let slide that I shouldn't have, some were just a case of running out of time. While I'm very pleased with this piece, it's still nowhere near where I hoped it would be when I started.
Now for some specific replies...

Here is my initial, super cartoony sketch, along with another unused concept (fantasy publishing rule #17: dragons sell books).

Pretty cool piece of work, everything was really well done only thing I think was that the blood should have been thicker or darker it looks kinda sprayed over the ground.
I think its better you used the first sketch too, dragons ftw

From a simple sketch the guy (or king?) looks amazing!
