so many people draw dragons as the focus of the pic, bu this is different. like it's saying dragons are just part of the world...very cool. I like the perspective!

The detail in the artwork as a whole is stunning, but I've gotta say, you've got a way with clouds. Absolutely beautiful :D

I can't say anything. Those clouds are just pure amazing. Seriously. I want those clouds.
And the dragon looks so realistic too, I badly want to use this as my desktop. You deserve a watch. ^^

... Wow.
That's all I could get myself to say when I saw this picture.
I have never, NEVER been able to get clouds that look even remotely that nice, they always end up looking fake.
And not to mention the detail on the dragon. Such a beautiful piece of work. I just might look at this picture when figuring out how to draw sunlit clouds.

I was actually going to call it a million sunsets, but that's over 200 years... which might still be a decent number for a dragon, but it seemed a little over the top somehow, like trillion or gojillion or whatnot. Plus, I thought it kind of sounded good, like "man of a thousand faces".... anyway, still better than "Commission for Mistral" or "dragon watching sunset" or something boring.

Sunsets are difficult. I've had the most challenging and rewarding experiences with pigments and a brush trying to capture a realistic sky.
Great job.
