CM: New Friends by Leithster CM: New Friends by Leithster
A commission for :iconzeitgeistdragon: of her Dragonsona (bottom left) meeting my Dragonsona (top right) for the first time!

So you asked for it to be very well colored, and well, I tried my best! I really put A LOT of effort into this. c: And now I think my hand is broken.

Have you guys noticed how often I draw sunsets/sunrises? And then how my scanner kills them? Yup.

Anyway, hope you like it!

Alright..let me put it this way..
The coloring is amazing, the shading is amazing, everything looks So awesome I have NO ways to describe how epic this is x3 I just love the highlights too! they look so epic~!

Now to see what you could improve..
Well what I really think could use an improvement is the clouds~ Now I do know the scanner might have killed it but they seem to be a little sketch in the center. And they might also be a little bit repetitive, maybe you could try drawing clouds with more epic shapes? maybe longer ones, that might even look as if they were in some kind of angle, if you know what I mean :3
Also, The dragoness on the left; the spikes at the beginning of the tail might use a little bit of an angle towards the back since the body seems to be facing in a slight, diagonal angle towards us, I think that should make it look much better x3 Also, I think you should remove the line between the hind leg and the tail, not even remove it completely, but just erase it a little so then, it wouldn't look as if the leg was some kind of 'extra' in the dragoness's body

Thats about it, the rest just looks amazing, you'r dragonsona has been drawn perfectly, I don't think there is anything to change on her nor the background, even if the scanner killed it, it looks great ;)
You are getting better and better Chels, don't give up x3
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR

I love the blue bits of lighting on the dragoness's legs. They are clearly visible and really enhance the piece. I also LOVE the blue one's coloring. He would be stunning just being the deep blue that he is, but he is dazzling with the yellow red pattern. Fantastic shading, and the wing size looks realistic. I especially like the shading on the dragoness's spikes and head plate. The anatomy is also flawless. I love the blue one's hands/paws. Especially on the hind legs. Also, the spines on both dragons are perfectly placed for the most effect.

But i think there is room to improve on some parts. The rock/mountain in the back round on the lower right for example. I think the lines could be a bit more subtle, and it would look cooler if they branched off, like cracks. The clouds could use improvement, but i know that they are really hard to do. The limbs could connect a bit more smoothly to your dragon's bodies, although its not so noticeable on the blue one.

All in all, its a fantastic piece! Good job!

I did notice you draw a lot of those, and they're awesome! But as GD said in the critique, be careful with those clouds. I suggest you have a reference, just to define the shapes more (I know clouds are difficult)
but other than that, I love this! The colours are so bright and vibrant, and the poses are awesome too
well done mah twin!
