: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 !

She looks amazing! What I love most is the details such as her arm and legs actually being squeezed a bit by the armband and legbands.

This is one of the most gorgeous female drow designs i have seen. I love the composition she is in as well. The white dragon is always a good choice, and is well rendered. This is very successful and you should be proud!
wow, never would've thought of black skin
its really interesting and it adds good contrast to the fire/light below.

snowball is lovely as well (:
this is trully a Masterpiece! :love: :clap:

can a work like this be done with a Genius tablet?

This piece is absolutely beautiful. I love your use of fine detail throughout, especially on the cloth.
