The new Guy
Hey artists out there
This is my first post in "Its finally finished"
I'm 17 years old and I'm from Germany
I really like this picture because i think it's my best one so far but I would also like to hear some advice to make it "mind-blowing" (if it's possible )

I like it overall, but it looks blurry to me. Is it trying to convey motion? Like motion blur? The tail looks flat or transparent, add some veins if its transparent? I think the random dots in the upper left either aren't necessary or you need more than just there. Hope that helps some.

First of all Thank you
Now I erased the dots on the corner and
yes I tried to let him look like he's swimming very fast but I admit it doesn't look very good. do you have any advice?

I like it, and don't it too blurry, but the jonction between the head and neck is a bit wonky.
The crest 'spine finish in thesame line than the eye while it's supposed to finish in the middle of the skull. It make the neck looks square instead ot round.

I like it as is. But if you want to make it more mind blowing and dynamic... try playing with depth first: The Dragon seems to be moving in one spot, showing distance by narrowing the tail and enlarging the head would be good. (creating an environment with good perspective would also add depth)
the top of the image is sort of flat and dont rely on motion blur too much to convey motion. Try to illustrate your intentions than depend on filters. And I dont really like the profile shot of the Dragon's head, considering you want it to be dynamic, give it a more '3D' angle.
anyway, still good job, especially considering your age

You're certainly off to a nice start. To add to hat the other posters have said, there's a bad tangency between the portion of his neck behind his head and the section onf his tail/body in the back (above and to the left). For a second I thought he had two tails, one significantly paler than the other. In the future try to pay attention to how parts of your image interract, especially where they overlap like this.
