My part of an art trade with this awesome person right here :iconmoonlit-meadowlark: of her character Talos (left) and my character Atlas (right). :la:

Asdfghjkl I'm actually really happy with this! :') Though my scanner still ruined the sky.

Also I wasn't sure how old and how big Talos is, I just assumed that Atlas was older. ;A; I should've asked, but I hope it's okay!

Hope you like it! :hug:

Her amazing half:

To start off, I really like the composition here, and the colours you've used for the sky becuase they compliment the colours of the dragons, and the shading and muscle you've put on the dragons is very well done as well.

However, there a few key things I notice.
For one, the colouring on your dragons is superb, but the colouring of the background looks rushed and takes away from the picture. I can clearly see white spaces between your colouring whereas on the dragons, I cannot so, if you tightened up your colouring so your direction of colouring would not be so obvious, it would really add to this :)
If the fire from the white dragon's hands is glowing then, there should be traces of that light reflected on your dragons as well, without this, the fire looks a touch unnatural and not as striking that way.
Another thing would be the clouds, again, they look rushed and it takes away from this piece becuase you can clearly see the amount of work you've put into shading your dragons, whereas the clouds, don't show that you took that attention to detail to them as well. Mind you now, the clouds wouldn't need too MUCH detail at all because the dragons are the focus of this picture, not the clouds. However, if the colouring was tightened up more, and the clouds were a bit less simplistic, it would look a lot more natural and better for this scene :)

The last thing I want to mention is the dragon's wings. You've drawn the wings quite tight here for them being folded in. If your dragons were to extend their wings with this much tightness to their wing membrane, it would rip and would not allow for flight at all. I read once in a book that you have to think of a dragon's wing membrane like a piece of cloth, and that when the cloth folds, folds appear in the fabric or the wing membrane.

Other than the things I mentioned this looks great, and I love the expressions on the dragon's faces as well as the detail work in their bodies :)
What do you think?

This looks amazing! The only thing I have to say is that you seem to have forgotten the white dragon's other front leg. Awesome work, though :)
