Nice, cool, well done, unique in its category... i could continue but i don't have enough time and battery on laptop to do it XD

The clouds, the sky and the sun are very nice; the expression on both dragons, shadows and the light through the wings are really worked (i think your hand and eyes are very tired of all time you've spend in front of screen XD)

Do whatever your heart dicts you is the best and take this critique as an advice. In my opinion, if flay's tail shines, its light should cross the cloud and let us see it well.

Anyway, it's really nice, still in this way, or improve it ^^
What do you think?

Aw, poor Flay, he's just so little, he didn't stand a chance.

... Flay you are a genius!
I just noticed all of the transparent shading from all of the clouds!
And her wings are making shadows and lighting... It's awesome! Why did I not notice this before Dx
WingedWilly Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
hah its ok xD
I just added so many things here so its easy to forget sth
Btw if you want to know how I made those clouds its mix of both our ways to create them (cell drawing+brush)

Daaawwwww Flay^^ :glomp: :huggle: :tighthug:

It's wonderful^^ :icondragonhug: thank you so much :icondragonspin1::icondragonspin2:

Your drawing keeps making me laugh and smile^^
True, this race was decided before it began XD Windridres is one of the best in flying, or she wouldn’t have gotten her name^^
Poor Flay XD But I'm sure it was fun to race never the less^^

Proud she looks, Windridres^^ You drew her just like I imagined her in your style :hug:
You outdid yourself thought with details^^ As I zoomed in to look at the iris you mentioned, which btw is awesome^^, I see you've learned a lot from drawing :thumb342815294: I noticed a lot more tiny details that I couldn’t see without zooming in :D and all of them are connected to your speciality... lighting, shadows and glows^^
This time you even added another^^ Transparency :D
Right there where the sunlight is brightest Wind's wings get partly transparent, you can see the tiny thin blood veins running through them, and even a shadow of the wing behind the front one^^
Not only that but the light also partly shines through her wing skin ^^ Closer to the sun more than further away^^
Then the shadows^^ Naturally if so high up on a mountains peak, so close to the sun, it's light is bright and clear. Rays of sunlight shine past her, her body breaks teh light and makes it shine around her^^ Those parts of Wind's body that isn’t covered in the shadows of her wings seems to reflect this clearest sunlight and shine like the surface of a gemstone :D :heart: so awesome!! ^^
The shadow is wonderfully fitting. Even the row down her spine makes shadows on her tail^^
And her face... I just love her face :D The ears are wonderful, the horns are so fitting and the lighting... :D The sun shines just over her cheeks and eyes up to the tip of her nose while her forehead is in shadows. The eyes have no own glow like Flay's but shine brightly anyway thanks to the sun^^ :heart::heart::heart: I love her^^

Poor Flay^^ He must have been working ahrd to keep up to Wind. I'm sure she'll help him to the top once he caught his breath :D
He certainly looks like he could use a paw. He's sweating (don’t know if you ever drew a dragon who is sweating before, it’s the first time I see it as far as I recall) and his expression shows that he is panting hard, in great need for oxygen.
Brave as he is though he clutches unto the cliff and tries to pull himself up. What a complicated pose you used for that... I can only imagine how I'd fail drawing a pose like this XD It enhances his exhausted body, but fighting spirit^^ And with his last leg and the tail still hanging in the clouds makes it look as if he just caught up and is still struggling a bit. Tough opponent he is never the less^^
Greatly done^^
Naturally the lighting and glow on him may not be missing^^ The clear sunlight is so bright that the glow of his wings and headfins nearly vanishes.^^ That's wonderfully done^^ And as the sunlight shines on his back the front part of his body is dark and shadowy. Ohh, poor guy, must this sun in his back be heating him up additionally >.< Good reason to reach Wind and get into the shadow of her wings, to cool down.^^ I'm sure she'll gladly do that for him^^

And which big idiot said you're not good with backgrounds? This person will get their eyes burned out when looking at this artwork of yours :D
Background is amazing^^ Sunlight, bright and clear as only found at high places, cliffy mountain peak, even with a bit of snow, not starting at the clouds XD
I'm totally lost where to begin and what to say about the whole thing XD
One at the time then XD Let's get to the clouds first XD
They are very realistic^^ You even added this top most cloud field, through which the peak looks, above which you normally hardly find clouds anymore^^ I couldn’t imagine how to better make them^^ (know this is simply said >.< but I really don’t know more to say XD)
Especially because of the lightings in them created by the sunlight^^, speaking of it, the clouds to create these rays of sunlight that sine through the cracks in them^^
Then the sky and's just...awesome^^ Bright, clear, beautiful^^ the dun is just one large orb of light shining its rays over everything, illuminating the sky, it too fitting to the sun's rays, glittering like a gem^^ Similar to Windridres ^^
She and the sky^^ It really looks as if she's part of it^^ Just like I always imagined her to be^^

I.. I just don’t know what more to say Flay :D
I couldn’t thank you enough^^ This drawing is so wonderful^^
Thank you so so so much my friend :icondragonhugplz:
