okay, first off... i love how you did the lighting/shading! it is absolutely stunning! the eye is really nicely done, and as far as i can tell, the joints are all in place. the colours blend together perfectly. the mane gives this dragon a very majestic look, and the background is also quite nice. the only thing i would change is making the lines smoother. but, honestly... it is a true work of art! and this sure is an original and interesting character! i hope the person you commissioned is pleased! you did an absolutely great job on this art!
This piece holds a lot of power in it; the colours used here are bold and bright which give the character a rich appearance. The shading and highlighting add a real likeness to the piece and give the character a lifelike look. The eyes are extremely expressive and the detail that has been put into them is extraordinary and beautiful. There is a noble aura that is conveyed through the artwork and this draws the observer into the piece and makes them want to study it further and to attempt to delve into the very soul and being of the character that has been so brilliantly depicted here :3
