Wow. This one's a Wow. The regions of blue light make a vivid contrast to the flame.

I love, love love how painterly your style is! I just feel like I could swipe my finger across this and smear it!

How do you do it!? Is that accomplished mostly in Painter? If so, what brushes/blenders do you use?

Loves it! Fab lighting and I like some of the little details - the 'dead' guy, the forrest in the bg, the knotwork sigil and the Dragon's eye - cool!

The dragon is nice. I like how snakey the head looks.
One technical note though: The shield is better than the last time I commented on shields ;) diagonal straps. But, the pose of the defending guy is very unstable. Maybe it's intentional, but he'd fall over if someone hit him. Like...a huge burst of flames :D With a shield, one usually stands turned sidewise with the left leg forward (like a sport fencer, just flipped). That way he'd be better balanced and able to recieve a blow.

He is being hit by a huge burst of flames... you don't think that should make him look a bit unstable?

Its interesting how different artists prioritise narrative concerns vs the technical aspects of the content. Its always an interesting balance to play with.
