Susiesun: **

Congratulations for your stunning beautiful and fine work!

Jimbobedsel: Congrats on the 2nd place. A well deserved honor!

casechaser: Chris, I really like art that brings with it a story. Your works does that.

For example, you leave it up to us to determine why a lady, dress for an evening out, is reading a book in a mausoleum?

I like the use of the fairies as light sources, throughout. I also like the use of color, especially the "blues," scattered about.

I also liked the use of the negative space.

purmusic: Love.. it!


Lost count of the number of times I have come back to your image's page here, having first viewed it upon posting.

And I still can't get past the initial feeling evoked of a mischievous and benevolent dragon sneaking about, who is a friend to the king's son. (So, take this 'constructive critique' with a grain of salt. ;o) )


The posturing (stating the obvious here, perhaps) ... and that of the colour palette makes for a very inviting illustrative-like image. On the notes of what is transpiring within frame (telling a story, or parts of) and stimulating more imaginative twists and details.


The composition really sets this one up well, in my opinion. The somewhat lower perspective and looking upwards.. adds to the 'lighter sense of being' and 'airiness' (rest assured, it's a good good thing)imparted.

The lines of the castle itself, in conjunction with the 'flow' of the clouds, et al.. underscores the strength of this element.


Caveats?

Minor, at best.

Smoke emanating from the dragon's nostrils. Gets lost a bit against the backdrop and is not quite as polished (not sure how you created this facet ... or that of it's positioning, layer-wise).

... ...

Ahh, ok.. got it.

The one word descriptor that has been eluding me pea brain.. 'delightful'.

:o)
