    With all that armor and a lance for a lightning rod, I'd be really nervous flying in that kind of weather. Very cool piece though. I like the dynamic movement of the dragon. The anatomy in the shoulder seems a little flat (missing some muscles and plane changes) and the forearms are different lengths even with foreshortening, but overall it's a very enjoyable piece to look at.

    Awesome work. The level of detail is really impressive. I agree with the other critique about the anatomy in the shoulder being a bit flat. Might want to round out that deltoid a bit on the wyrm.

    After looking at it a couple more times, what would make this really explode is using just a splash of yellow inside the mouth and maybe in the eyes of the knight. That would really offset the purples well.

    I do like this picture, also was a huge fan of DL when I was a kid. Some nit picky crits, by the shading on his knee area makes his leg seem REALLY thin, thinner then it should be....Did they want you to show a blue dragon with a dragonlance ? Because if you get really nerdy, the dragonarmies didn't have dragonlances, that was part of the whole quest, and Theros learns how to forge them and yadda yadda...hehe anyways, wicked ass piece, I just wanted to add something somewhat constructive

    no tearing up here.
    other than the dragon and rider being too heavy
    for those small wings,
    i really like it.
    very good design and colors. and the pose of the beast is excellent too.

    We all pay for life with death, so everything in between should be free.

    Dutton- Thanks for the feedback, I see what you mean about the shoulder. As far as the lightning goes, well...um...I got nothin' <shrug>.

    D0M- Heh, glad you like, but I don't think Todd has anything to worry about from little ol' me.

    rondo- Thanks!

    drax- Thanks, and feel free.

    dkounios- Thanks!

    Artifex33- I'm planning on going over this one more time and then offering prints. I'll be sure to play around with the yellow a bit. Thanks for the feedback.

    Shatterdome- D'oh! That's my f**k-up. This is Kit and Skie, I have to admit its been quite a while since I read the books, and I got a bit carried away.

    Chuck,mate.- Thanks man. Several people have commented about the wings, so I had probably take another pass at those as well.

    Ray Dillon Yup. I did eight covers for the Autumn Twilight series, and now we're on to Winter Night. Thanks!

    Really like the energy in the dragons pose, its got alot of action to it!

    My one and only crit aside from whats been mentioned is that certain areas of the dragons anatomy look a bit flat. His Chest and thigh areas in particular. I think this is a bit of a combination of the contour of the lines not following the contour of the dragons anatomy and the shading being a bit flat in those areas. Other than that though its very nice. Hope this is helpful and not anoying.

    I think it's outstanding, Tyler. Beautiful rendering that evokes a wonderful Parkinson feel.

    I guess I would echo the arm dragon crits, though. It is a tad flat. But I don't think it would take much to rectify. The other thing I might point out is that the wing fingers could use just a tad more love to them. And finally, While I understand the composition, I'm not certain that I dig the way the wings are almost perfectly symetrical to each other, given the bodies somewhat side view. To me it creates a bit of unwanted tension between the two. But I might be being a bit too critical on that.

    But those are minor crits. I'd be thrilled to death to be able to pull something of this calibre off
