Dark Dragon of Dreams by keelerleah Dark Dragon of Dreams by keelerleah
The second fantasy painting for a fantasy website.

This is my first attempt (that worked) at painting a dragon. I swear those scales drove me insane. :D

As always, painted completely in Adobe Photoshop. Approximately 14 hours.

I love this drawing, its what got me into dragons. I guess I should say that it looks similar to the dragon I have been trying to draw for 16 months. ^^; Thanks though! Inspiration was all I needed! :D

for a first atempt ( that worked ) at dragons, this is an exceptionally good work... It's quite lovelly and colerfull...

Keep it up... the rest of your gallery is stunning as well... but I can offer no real constructive criticism on any of your pics... they are far beyond my level...

However I was wondering if you could stop by my page and give me some constructive criticism on my works???
