The shading is amazing! You're right, it does look metallic, but fittingly so! I especially love the detail you've given the face. Nice ears, too - not too often you see ears like that (or really, ears at all!) on a dragon. Great idea for those horns! Wow! Heather L. Kidd
replies: "Thank you for the comment! The branch-tipped horns are somewhat inspired by other branched-horned dragons I've seen drifting around by various artists. Those ears have sort of become the default for my dragons, and I'm not sure why."

replies: "Sure you could do it! The original pic of this--the sketch--was about half a year old on my machine, possibly older. I decided I'd work with it and see where I could go adding some contrast with burn and dodge. It's all about the contrast."

I must add my praise to the others here - this creature looks fanTAStic! You've done some great work here... please please drop a comment on my front page letting me know where I can access the first issue and more of your comic (if possible)
Great work!! Heather L. Kidd
replies: "There wasn't ever really a first issue, just some old comics I wasn't too pleased with (much has changed since then). I will, however, look into paying your library a visit. Thank you again for commenting!"

Hi Heather, I have to say I wasn't trying to force you to come and read from my library - I just wanted to make sure I got back here cos I knew I'd forget
But lo and behold, I was going through my comments and saw yours again so here I am!
As I said in your library, all the multi-talented females (writers AND artists) around here are beginning to annoy me (*jealous frustration*) - please keep up the good work. I hope your real life scheduling gives you a break soon (I know what *that's* like... Heather L. Kidd
replies: "Awww, don't be jealous. Your writing outstrips mine by a very very long way. "

Definately my fave pic here! I love photoshop, but i also love pencil drawings. I like how this image looks like both! Very cool! Heather L. Kidd
replies: "Thank you! I appreciate the comment. I still like it too, though if I did it over, it'd be a little different. "

I must say, that is one of the COOLEST pictures I have seen in a long time. I love the title too... I'll have to learn how to draw like that. *narrows eyes enviously*
