This is gorgeously rendered, and I love the depth of color! However, the mountains in the distant background feel just as close as the one in the foreground because of their sharpness... It might help the focus if you passed a soft blur over the farthest areas.
Really beautiful work! The warmth is really enjoyable.
Oh wow, this is gorgeous! The detail and lighting is amazing, I especially love the attention put into the scales and how the light shines through the wings. The curve of the tail is really smooth too and looks so 3-dimensional~ Nice call on the waves too! This looks much more balanced and sets a nice mood c:
That came out really nice. I like the calmer waves because it feels like I'm looking at the ocean further away and at blue water(deep water). The shallower the water is, the more rough it can be unless you have one of those flat calm days that makes the ocean look like a sheet of glass.
