Daily Deviation

Given 2008-02-01
Star by ~Elfessa is just so rich in STYLE that for the first time ever the words "this might be my favorite thing on DA" actually ran through my mind. It's exotic and beautiful and pops out like something from a story book. And, again for the first time, I ordered a print of it (something I've never done on DA before). The dragon's face especially interests me; its stylized laughing expression is my favorite part. The dark, scaled woman with the gorgeous red hair balances beautifully with the dragon in something almost reminiscent of a yin and yang. ( Suggested by Chewilicious and Featured by Einion )

I really like what you've done here. The composition is nice, but I especially like the colors and shading you've used. Very fascinating and it almost seems to really sparkle and shine. Great work! I like the design of the dragon, too.

This is gonna sound funny, but I was praying the humanoid figure in this was a woman, because I couldn't see by the thumbnail. So when I saw it was a she I was all 'yay'! It seems too often I see a picture of a figure in the middle of something epic and when I look closer I see it's a man.

Besides that, the picture is gorgeous and has a kind of...*fable* feeling to it. That feeling is not easilly established, but you've done it, and exceptionally.
