I love the detail of the other dragon in the distance; this picture not only tells the story of an event, but suggests more to come!

I love that this is a black guy. And by the way? You are my hero for making those drawings Teddy Roosevelt and Co. showing the world why America is, and always will be, number one. Godspeed :3

I agree with Nightweave I wouldn't have made him with chainmail tucked in, but hey it still looks good, very nice detail on the chainmail/ sword / fire. Even though all that is detailed the pants arent very detailed, they do need some kinda movement in them (wrinkles like the shirt). Also if I were you, I would make some blood spatter on him to show the violence, especially with the pose he is in (stabbing motion). he needs some blood splatter on his clothes / face and he would look Perfect!!!

All in all very nice work... better than what I can do. But hey I thought my advice might help you in the future.
Good luck, and Happy Holidays!

saw this on facebook, had to check it out on DA. Your economy is of strokes is getting a lot better, more contrast and more movement on the cloth planes would seriously help this piece.

You don't tuck chain into your pants....well if your a nerd you do hero I suppose you could.

Chain doesn't sit that well of the forearms...looks more like a jumper than how Chain sits, bulge at elbow works but cuffs on chain actually don't keep closed like that it will hang open. This means that the links will be more open unless you have leather or cord holding it closed.

Apart from that for added effect you could leather tie at elbows to lessen load on forearms. But not essential and not historical detail as far as I am aware, but it is practical.

Apart from that nice picture.
