and commentary:
Usualy I draw a pensil sketch in the begining, but in this work I start without it strately in photoshop and it entail numerous corrections in process. Especialy it related dragon. When I start to draw him, I realise that there were not enough place and change size of canvas. Tnen I didn't like the proporcions and crop picture. Well that background, dragon and girl located in different layers. I change design of dragon untill it satisfied me. But checking picture composition & anatomy by reflecting it I notised that dragons muzzle made with wrong perspective & girls legs lockated ungracefully. I correct it & add some light rays & flying butterflies. At the final stage I add more colors, depth, details. So, here U R

Beautiful Dragon. The woman looks amazing as well, but the dragon, for me, is the best of the two.
