Amazing amount of detail put into this! I love the colors used for the iris and the actual skin/scales of the dragon, great contrast. The little scales around the eye really add to it as well. And great work on the detail and coloration of the iris, also. Fantastic work here.
I absolutely adore dragons and this beautiful painting is breathtaking! The reflection in the eye is what amazes me the most. The coloring compliments the gold brilliantly and definitely illuminates the dragon taking flight! ♥
