Hi there,

love this style.. keep it up looking good so far

Hey Kanokporn, this image has a lot of potential...also very much like what you described as the 'oriental sytle.' Maybe the image is in it's early stages, but, for positive criticism I would suggest working more with the oval yellow is a very unusual daunting color to view...perhaps more detail in the background, even rendered in shades of yellow, would break it up, or...a darker border around the yellow? For some reason the yellow of the background seems to fade into the white of the page. Altogether very positive though...looking forward to seeing how you think this through. --One more thing, it is (very) hard to see what the character is doing with her arms...where they are even in relation to her shoulders. That's not really much of a problem though...only came to mind upon further inspection. Good luck. --Okay, I hope you don't take yet another positive criticism the wrong way, but, it is difficult to interpret a sense of journey from this image...? --It IS a beautiful image though.

I always love a picture with strong cultural elements.
Nice work! I have a suggestion for the girl, squint her eyes upward a bit, just enough to give her a more happy look, good luck

The flourish morning in Autume. We make an appointment with a very kind deity dragon for going out on pleasure in a holiday.

Uncle deity dragon will bring us to go for a walk with our pet above the flume where chilly and very beautiful. He will transform himself to a long golden cloud for reaching quickly and safty to the flume.

He gives a signal for us to start. Then our journey will begin now :)
