Aw snap, I didn't even notice the knight corpses strewn all over the ground until I looked at it a second time! That's some crazy-intricate detail!

I love how the colors of the dragons scales and wing membranes match the grass and autumn leaves. Such a fantastic work of art - even more so considering you made it happen with traditional media.

Listen up mate, I ain't no art collector, nor have I a shit ton of money. Nevertheless, how much?
I think it's needless to say, that this is an astonishing piece of art and a wonderful exception since it's done by hand.

Nice to see such a cool traditionally painted dragon. And there is no doubt as to who owns this land. And I just noticed, is that a mother dragon in the background, guarding an egg? Congrats on the DD!
