Hun, I dunt care what you say, this picture is effing amazing.
first off, that pose. That pose alone is something I have never seen for Virith. I've told you about it before, and here I am, telling you about it again. I love it! Honestly, it fits Virith's character and leaves it open to interpitation. Mine? Serthal just stole something just flew over her, taunting her in the process. Now, see, the crystals are another thing I wanted to see done; I knew you said they would be glowy, and holy effing shit, you did not disappoint in the slightest. The textures on them were done really well, and the energy being released is just perfect.
Once again, the way you did eyes is nothing short of amazement. I effing LOVE that light green pupil, and how you made it glow in sync with her crystals. The electricity surrounding the crystals is a very nice touch as well.
Virith's expression is snarly and irritated, but not exactly vicious. At least, to me it's not. That's something you don't see every day. Most dragon artists just put a snarl face for being snarl and vicious cuz it looks BA (and some do). Yet, you did it in a different way. Bravo, hun
(Also I hope that tail blade didn't cause TOO much trouble D:. It looks gorgeous, though!)
Keep up the amazing work, hunny! You are just getting so much better.
Also, DAT SHADING. Amg, it looks like a perfect cell shading!
