Hellkite Monarch by Somnicide Hellkite Monarch by Somnicide
Here is the finished version of my contest entry "Hellkite Monarch". I'm quite proud of it, actually. I was able to pull off some cool things that I had always struggled with before. I've learned so much over this past year and I've met such amazing people. I am beyond thankful for all of the help and critique that I've received these past two semesters. I love those guys.

Entered in fantasy drawing contest: [link]

This took me just shy of a week. Most of that time was spent trying to make the composition work to where I was happy with it. And thank you! I'm pretty proud of those clouds, I usually cant paint them that well.

This is pretty incredible :love:

The composition feels so dynamic with the different elements you included! The clouds are beautiful and the lighting is gorgeous... And then there's the characters-- both human and not, who look quite nice in that same lighting :)

Good luck!
