the shading of the neck is my fave part, i think it’s the natural colouring, the purplish tone is so realistic. sorry that seems a wierd part to notice most of all, but i love all of it. the shading just struck me as well done. Silvannen Mystic Dragonrider Gerrard
replies: "Thank you very much! ^_^ As I said to Anna (above) the shading was difficult to get right as I had to be really careful that I didn’t over do it. You should have seen my face when my art teacher first suggested to use purple!....but she was right! "

Whatever effect you used for the purple tentdrils looks really good. They look quite crystaline. Silvannen Mystic Dragonrider Gerrard
replies: "Thank you for commenting! I used a technique called encaustic art, which involves using a special kind of wax and melting it on an iron before smooting it over non-absorbent paper and lifting the iron off the paper to create cool effects. You can probably get more information on the technique if you google: "encaustic art". Hope that was helpful! ^_^"

You used great bold colors to add definition and really make this picture pop, while at the same time, the muted colors have a pleasant subtly. Good work! Silvannen Mystic Dragonrider Gerrard
replies: "Thank you for your comment! I’m glad you like the colours I used. This is probably one of the few pieces that my camera didn’t bleach the colour from! Haha! ^_^"
