The Silver Dragon's Palace by BlueKraken The Silver Dragon's Palace by BlueKraken
Yay, another dragon!
'Kay, so it's been a while. I took quite a break, spending time doing little sketches and observing how other artists are able to make their work just... kinda 'come together'. I've used a lot of colour, (attempted) to use perspective, stuff like that.
Hope you like it, and feedback is appreciated :P

And you may have noticed the fancy new signature. The old one was really just a placeholder... gonna stick with this from now on :)

the only suggestions i could make would be to show more muscle in the wings, afterall such a beefy creature would need beefy wings to support itself in the air, and if the horns are going to follow the ridge of the top of the head then the one on the other side would only show the last half, also if the wings are that ragged on the edges it would look better if u put a few holes in the wing membrane itself so that the frayed edges would make more sense, otherwise i really love the shading and the way u did the neck plating

Thanks for the suggestions; I really appreciate it! And I do agree that I went a little overboard on the wings... =P

Nice work, I like the rough style of this, nice the design on the horns and spikes on the head too, that drew my attention right away. The background is nice too though I do feel it clashes with the dragon because of the thick linework, I think it would be better to pick one style and stick with it for the whole immage. I'm sure you can make that work. :)

Thankyou for the advice, and I'm glad you like it! I was very iffy about the background myself (I'm pretty bad at depicting distance and depth, as you can see from the left side), and I think I understand what you're getting at; I'll see what I can do to improve on it :)
