+ Shedding Stars + by ShePaintsWithBlood + Shedding Stars + by ShePaintsWithBlood
This is so old like three years it is kind of funny I am posting it. It has potential but lacks a lot of things that would make it pop.

At some point I just might revise it but for now I decided to post it for the displeasure of all.

It is a swanlike dragon (which I just realized looks like a baby version of another dragon I dreamed of about a year ago) awaking from a long nap to shed its scales for the stars in the sky.

I know it's old, but it's still beautiful and eerie in its own way. It's real peaceful, too, and if I ever saw a poster of it in a store I'd buy it x3

See, I find this very pretty. Composition-wise, it could use a bit of work since it's so centered but other than that it's a nice painting. If you do go back and touch it up, I just recommend adding some "pop" to it like you already mentioned. While the bright white of the dragon does stand out from the background, I think a bit more contrast in places would make this excellent.

Thank you so much!!


I actually think I like the centered aspect but if I did this piece now it would have a lot more contracts and definition, it looks so fuzzy and a bit washed out here, haha!:blackrose:

I think the swanlike dragon and this setting is so pretty. I'd love to have a dream like yours

Thank you very much! I wish I could repeat that dream, it is one of my favourites to date.
