:star:Lineart made after this painting :star:

Photoshop CS3
Wacom Intuos 3A4
No reference as usual
Original size : 3450px * 10630px, 300 dpi
I'd say about 18hours ? I don't know though. I'm having big eye troubles at the moment and I can't work as I'd love to since I can't stare at my computer for a very long time :(

I found them names ! The girl is called "Lakkenäa" and her dragon pet is called "Snowball". I don't know what Lakkenäa means, I did a Google search and it doesn't exist, but I liked it.
And no, she's not cold, there's some fire behind her and let's pretend she's using magic to feel warm.
She's listening to Snowball telling her where she can adopt an other dragon (and a specific one by the way : he fell in love with a pretty pretty she-dragon and wants her to be his girlfriend ! )

I hope you'll like it ! I know it's still a bit sketchy, but I was already late to give it to *Kanuka76 since the official deadline was over ^^;
I may refine it someday when I have free time though. For now I'll just keep on working on contest commissions (almost done ^^; ), other commissions, school work and music !

I would love to see more Drow art done in this style. The ears have room for improvement but everything else about tis is quite ground breaking.
