There are many dragons that wake on occasion from the Sleep. One such dreamer is the green dragon called 'DeVine' by her charmed troll followers. DeVine, as with Bloodfire and N'Agonnd, has a very powerful edge. She has mastered the art of sorcery, which makes her arguably the most powerful of all the dragons of Oberonn's Land. Her great staff, the staff of Eld, was believed to have been carved out of a sacred elventree, and is filled with energies both of nature and fiend.

No prodigious words of doting praise here, buddy! It's critique time!! 2

The drawing looks pretty sweet on this, and I really like what I think was your idea to have the sun behind her, and illuminating the atmospher in its glare.

But... somehow some of that gets lost. The colour work on this one seems a bit busy... red, orange, yellow, green, cyan! It's a full chromatic complement and it's kind of disorienting. I tend to lose the shape of the dragon herself. Also, the magical energy crackling around her tail could use some brightening up... it looks sort of flat.

Whoosh! Bam! Drive-by Critique!! 2

Also, sorry, but with that name and all that sparkle, I can't help but assume that she's the dragon equivalent to a drag-queen. 12

:-) Gregory P. Gibbons replies: "Well, this is what happens when too much magic is displayed in one image- a sense of over- dramatic lighting, and a loss of excitement due to overstimulation color-wise. I still think that it's just a matter of tweaking, though.DeVine, as with Goodwill and BloodFire, aren't the real names of the dragons. But DeVine was meant to sort of parody the same stage-like showiness that cross-dressers often aspire to- at least that's why I chose it, sort of like an homage to her ego, and missing her sexuality entirely. Or maybe embracing it. I dunno. You're the artist here! You tell me!"

Wow. Really. I've seen a lot of your stuff and I've been impressed by it all, but wow.

I've always been biased towards the work you've done by hand over things done or touched up on the computer. I just like the feel of them better, even if I've had to grundginly admit that some of the effects you can acheive by adding in the computer are pretty impressive. This just looks like it belongs, like this is what all those possibilites are there for. This might be my new favorite thing you've done.

:-) Gregory P. Gibbons replies: "Thanks, Orenda. I'm glad that some of this digital work is finally seeming to belong!"
