I absolutely love how this came out. I don't know, these new artist brushes just speak to me. I rough it in using these brushes and then detail on top of it. It creates a texture and feel that I haven't been able to achieve until now.
I think its interesting how you had the canvas texture on underneath some of the picture, and only peaks out at certain places. It makes it feel almost authentic and as if this was made on a real canvas. It also would make it feel like some areas were worked a lot more than others, having more paint, etc. Very nice job. :3
I like I like the mountains more than the dragons for once! I don't know if you made this the same size as its being displayed here, but the detail of the dragons is good too with how small they are compared to the rest of it. Congrats on the new brushes ^^. I'm just starting to get into painting and have a long way to go.
