Happy fatherhood by AlviaAlcedo Happy fatherhood by AlviaAlcedo
Joy of playing with little son^^

Don't ask, how much time it takes to draw this. I don't remember, but MUCH time^^'
It's commission for *AKRine

Do you see a mermaid on the drawing? =D

You never fail to amaze nor me or anyone i assure you first of all the expression on the dragons face is exelent you can  actually see the caring father and the playfull "come with me" of the son , The wings of the father dragon give it a protective look also
Now for detail , i am just amzed of how much detail you can put on these from the bubbles around the dragon to the mermaid on the background and those little corals and clown fish :heart: Also the lighting is just perfect here specially the blurry lines of light from the waves and the rays that seem to be penetrating the water And i also noticed you put dolphins and a little fish bank there  ~ 
Those scales fadfdgad  they look amazing its like each one of them is a piece of art in its self 
Overall this is amazing along with all ur other art

I had seen this awhile ago, but I'd forgotten to favourite it, and since then I've been trying to find this amazing picture. I had no idea it was made by you, one of my favourite artists! I guess there are only so many artists as amazing as one can be. <3 forever

This is really awesome because I just love the colors in the piece. The one thing that I think is confusing and I tell others about this too is dragons can't live underwater with wings. I know this is not your character I'm just putting it out there. But overall, this is a really cute, touching artwork. :D

Actually, if angled correctly, webbed wings like that could make for very powerful 'fins/flippers'. ^_^

I love the moment captured and would really love to get a print of this to put in my sons nursery. Dragons is a real part of the theme with other mythical creatures and this is just a wonderful piece.

I would be truly honored if you would allow me to use this pic in a Dragon's secret lives montage video. If you would say yes I will compensate by putting your name, screen or real if you prefer, on the pic along with those who commissioned you to make this in the credits, and the description with link to yours and commissioners DA page next to it.

So awesome! You probably hear that all the time. But it's true! Aside the adoration captured in the scene, i love the fact that it's been done under water, not very often done with dragons :) Love it!
