Dragonling by Cacodaemonia Dragonling by Cacodaemonia
EDIT Nov. 23, 2010: Okay, more changes. I got some great critiques from Jon Schindehette, Lars Grant-West, and many others at Illuxcon, and have tried to implement some of their suggestions. I may make more changes in the future. You can see the previous version here.

+++

EDIT Oct. 29, 2010: Thank you guys for all the awesome crits! I've made quite a few changes to this, and I think it's a big improvement. Here's the new painting, and if you want to see the old one you can go here. Special thanks to :icontheechoinside: for the extremely helpful paintover! :love:

+++

This thing is FINALLY (maybe) done. I started it back in May and ignored it over the summer in favor of work, but since Illuxcon is coming up, I need more new portfolio pieces. I decided to ditch the lines, and am very happy I took :icondracothrope:'s suggestion to use Kingfisher-like markings!

I would very much appreciate critiques or suggestions, though, I may not be able to reply to them right away. Thanks! :)

The water looks incredible and I like how he's eating the fish.  Very cool.

Dat wing! Goodness. I think I've never seen a more "realistic" drake, if realistic is the right word.

Very nice! Very reminiscent of a wetlands bird in the neck and head.

THAT IS ONE BEAUTIFUL FISH! You make it look so alive and smooth! The emotion you give it by having the fish meet his fate is just splendid!

"What? this picture is about the dragon?"

That looks like one of the dragons from Game of Thrones.
