As soon as I saw this piece in my Watches section, I fell in love with the piece.

In fact, one of the first things I noticed with this is where the focus is; the dragon. The focal point, from how I see it, is centered around the dragon and its incredible wingspan in comparison to its body already; but then you glance down and see the person. Then you get a feeling of how massive the creature actually is. I've noticed in your other works you've done similar things as well with perspective like this, and I just need to say that it's wonderful! It's one of my favorite perspective themes.

The colors are also amazing. It has the right amount of color contrast and shading where needed and you can really get a feel for the scenery that way. I love how the pallet is harmonious with, but no color is overly focused on so that nothing is over or under powered. The balance is perfect. The background is a bit bright, but that's not a bad thing, as it brings the focus up front where it needs to be; but you also didn't miss detailing the background as well, which is great!

You have a great attention to detail, and it seems like its well thought out. You can see every feather on the dragon individually. Even on the person the detail on the outfit and staff is incredible.

Another thing that I really like is the art style itself. I know you had said it took six hours, and I have to say that's incredible! I just feel like with that amount of time, you executed the painting incredibly well, especially with the technique you used. I actually had a difficult time trying to determine whether or not it actually was on a canvas. It's a unique style, and I'm glad you chose it, especially for this piece because it works so well.

I've always been a fan of your art, and the dragon is absoutely stunning!! You must have spent a lot of time on the background and you have successfully established the size difference between dragon and human. However, it would be better if the wing anatomy and feather arrangement could achieve better realism. Also, I would think that giving the eye of the dragon more contrast against the darker hues of it's (fur, feathers?) to draw the observer's attention to the dragon before analyzing the rest, maybe a glint or maybe a dragged out brilliance from the eye could even give it a more ferocious look. But above all, Great job!! Keep it up, if i were a game designer i would recruit you for sure!
No hate pleze!
PEACE!!
(this is just my opinion, if you have other sugestions against this, i wouldn't mind :))

I LOVE the dragon, but to be entirely honest, the surrounding landscape just takes me away. The way the feathers of the dragon just fits in with the rocky, almost Irish, moors, blows me away. This is easily one of my favorite works of yours. Outstanding job! :)

This is really cool. It's such an epic piece. Especially when you how small the person is at the bottom. The colors really suit the landscap and imagry.

I love the strokes of your drawing. It leads the viewers eyes up towards the dragon whether you intended it or not :)

The characters staff brings me back to dragon age so I like how it looks as well.
I think the best part of this whole drawing was the fact that the background is so breathtaking.
