Nicely done on the armor detail :)

Love it! The armor is darn-near to reality for a piece like this...nice to see an alternative to the mail bikini business.

I bought your book today "Fantasy art for beginners" annnd, there was something about this pic I didn't quite get^^

Is the heroine sticking her sword in the Drgaons head? Did it die by that? If so, where is the wound, the blood?

Or is she just poking it in the head?

Because it looks like she didn't even use her sword at it, or stab it. It just looks like..she's poking it's head, by the tiny tip of her sword, and I doubt a Dragon would die of that^^

Anyway, love your art, love your books. Keep up the good work!

Hi! Glad you like the work, and thanks for buying the book!

She's just resting the sword on it's dead head - almost posing for the picture if you like.

Like it a lot. Nice to see practical armour on a heroine character (Royo could take note). Only thing I'm not sure about is the creature, which doesn't seem formidable enough. The Dragony head seems a bit big for the snaky body. The body seems a bit weak.

Hmm, this would make an excellent book cover!

oh noes! that poor dragon.. even if it was evil.
I love how you haven't made the heroine generic, or in any case girly, I love her face how she's like don't-make-me-kick-your-arse tone. Real Seriousness!
Though There should be gore splattered on her face and/or armour to make it seem like she had a real fight and not just stabbing roadkill she found :D :chainsaw:
