Illusion by vtas Illusion by vtas
After a long strenuous journey through the wasteland, the hero comes upon a great mountain range of glassy blue crystals, reflected in them fantastic illusions of beauty and power. The hero sees the dragon and the cave of wonders. Which is real?

----

Lots of dilemma while painting this >_<;;

The dragon's head is suppose to be stylistic, sorta Asian. xD I'm not touching this anymore despite mistakes. (wait 'til I become a hypocrite and change my mind), download for larger view.
<3 :iconpannytheangel: for looking at it before post

Time: a couple hours a day for a couple days.
no refs.

I think I've already critiqued this to the best of my ability. That said, beautiful debut picture. XD The added shading on the neck really makes the head stand out more. The veins on the wing is still one of my favorite parts. :D

Also. I want the rocks in that cavern. They -glow- :'D

Love the new descrip. :D

I still say the crystals are real. How am I suppose to steal them if they aren't! D:

Yay, thanks ^_^

Lol, it might be best for everyone if the dragon was fake.
Or...that might just be too much wishful thinking.. :P

Woah, very nice. I especially like the color-scheme and the eye. And the wing in the foreground is a nice touch as well.

Also: welcome!
