A well-constructed piece. The pose of the dragon does a good job of centering the viewers' attention on the magic being performed. The magic itself, however, should be a little more enhanced. A brighter glow emanating from the orb, with less detail in the center of it, would pay dividends in increasing the potency of the light source. The black line around the inner cirlce of the magic should also be either removed, or lightened; again, because it takes away from the impact the inner glow should have. The legs of the dragon could also be shaded more distinctly, so they are easier to distinguish from the rest of the body. Overall, the design of the dragon is very stylish, and I love the color combinations. Who doesn't love dragons that can do magic?
You are terrifyingly patient with the details, it impressed me! Wonderful, wonderful work! These are the stuffs should be display in the front page instead of people in undergarments and people who owns overpriced cameras who take random photos!
