With as much as I have in art, in terms of vision and schooling, I feel this is rather beautiful, even in it's infantile stages. It's slowly growing into something quite beautiful, befitting the colors and wonder of autumn. With so many colors that aren't as bright and brilliant as summer or spring, some would find it dull to paint that sort of scene, but I don't find it so with this piece. It's going to be something I'll want to stare at and keep as a painting if I were able and I say you are doing wonderfully! Bring me more!
Using my statements on the previous WIP of this piece, absolutely stunning. By adding more detail with the rippling and reflections in the water, you've thoroughly enhanced the beauty and attitude of the picture. Simply that in addition to the already astounding foundation doubled it's charm. Still, there are a few things that could be improved upon; I'll stick to what i said before about the inconsistency of the style through the piece. The sharpness of the far-off trees contrast with the smooth and enchanting almost dreamy tone of the dragon's tree. Perhaps a bit more definition on the dragon's limbs and fur, and I'd say you're set. In conclusion, I really must still say, "wow." Wonderful job.
This is turning out absolutely perfect! I don't see much you can improve on...it's all great! I would probably add more light to everything if you wanted to brighten it up. Maybe add sparkles to the water, but it looks absolutely fantastic.
