Awesomeness! If I had thought to put the brown round the edge, my brain would have said no that's going to look horrible, and I would never have done it. Now I know to try everything I come up with because it could look as epic as this
И, думаю, дело не в деталях типа летучих мышек, паутине и порванных крыльях, а именно в атмосфере работы - ты творила её в хорошем настроении, со спокойным настроем, а чтобы сотворить что-то действительно страшное или злое надо просто выйти из себя и захотеть уничтожить вес мир! А этого лучше не делать)
darkeeeer, the colours are too bright. The dragon itself is more creepy than the previous one, but for me it looks like it's chilling on the beach in bright sunlight while some random day-bats fly by, haha XD oh now that sounded mean, sorry. Nice scaling, shading and highlights as always
Great work on the shading and little details. I love that little spiderweb, and the lanterns hanging from his horns are a nice touch, as well. He looks like he'd be perfectly at home roaming the skies on Halloween night.
As for scaring your mom, I'd try a more feral look. Leave out any jewelry or chains, keep it looking untamed. Showing a little bit of gore from it's latest kill might help with that, too. Also, no feathers or fins or fur. Those little tail fins are cool, but they kind of detract from the scary. Barbed or bladed tails are always good.
It would be creepier if the sky and sun weren't such bright, primary happy colors. Everything about the dragon and it's design, colors, and textures is perfectly creepy... and while the background looks great, it doesn't fit the dragon much. Two different, pretty paintings! They just aren't saying the same thing. Your watercoloring skills are wonderful though~
This looks nice though, and definitely creepy! My mom is so much of a chicken she's scared by anything. Yours has guts, haha. I enjoy the harvest moon in the background though (reminds me of a harvest moon) It certainly conveys that halloween/fall feeling.
