Craaaazy good! Who wouldn't be impressed by those amazing colors in the first place?!

Totally beautiful, or should I say handsome. I love the plumage of this Yao-Chi, as well as his brilliant and widely varied colors. It's like, they never clash, they all make him more striking. Definitely one of the most pleasurable dragons to look at! And I can see his style/species as one of those who attempts mating dances.

You did a wicked great job on this, I love how the female dragon is still in the frame but not lots of focus on her; putting her in the corner have you more focal point on Yao-Chi. Overall, I love it. This is marked in my favorites for sure.

Thank you so much for the in-depth compliment! =)

You're welcome. I'm glad it was good enough.

You know, I'd heard of you before, and I even think I watched you in the past. I actually came back to you because I heard about the plagiarizing girl (banned now, haha) who traced your art. That must've sucked.

But actually, I did go through your gallery looking for something, but I didn't find it. It's a little hard to describe. Did you ever draw a South American picture with some sort of action explorer team? I think it was a dragon and a feline. I'm asking because I loved that picture, in particular how it was set in South America with that temple in the background. Heh, you can blame that on the book Sunwing, one of my favorite books ever.

Yeah...having my art traced and sold did suck. Luckily, the girl who did it has been banned from DA. I hope she learned a lesson and quit tracing.

I know exactly which picture you're talking about it. I removed a LOT of my art from DA and did a total reorganization of my gallery. I'm trying to keep most of my anthro stuff OFF of DA.

The pic you're talking about is The Legend of the Bloodstone, and it's here on my FurAffinity (FA) gallery--> [link]

My FA gallery has most of my anthro stuff, as well as most all of my 'R' rated pics.

I also have galleries at ArtSpots--> [link] and VCL--> [link]
