I think as far as 3d conversions go this is stunningly accurate.

...but I like the painting more!

The lighting in the painting has a bit more atmosphere, it's a little softer, has just a bit more ambience. The render is a little too clean by comparsion, maybe the black levels are too harsh, don't know.

I also prefer the texture of the dragon in the painting, he almost seems to have fine fur, which has more of a 'luck dragon' from the Never Ending Story feel. Likewise the girl's hair is finer in the painting, but having said that, the girl's face looks much better in the render.

Yeah, so all up, stunning, but not sure which is better, if you could combine elements from both i'd be perfect!

great work stahlberg, as always.

i like the limited pallette u used.

as a 3d image i'd say the hair thats going over her right arm doesn't look like hair, and doesn't seem to match up with the texture of the hair at the top of her head.

other than that great.
what i know now is negligible to what i am willing to learn in the future.

That's fantastic! I watched your progress my eyes open wide, and result is really fantastic.

Maybe one thing Hair still looks a little -err- plactic, and fine hairs doesn't match, imho. But still it's fantastic (Did I said fantastic before? )

Edit: Err, one more: Area front the girl looks like cleaned. Maybe you can put some small rocks there.

Sorry for my
terrible English.

Sketch everyday

Simply beautiful!!

two humble pieces of comment;
I agree with Martin NH -> ".... I think the drool comming from the dragons mouth kinda disturbs the flow of the composition ..."

And there's something about the girls' belly, I think the 'folding' (not sure if this is the right english word for it) is a bit too sharp.

I hope that it's ok to critique someone that everybody else is praising..

1. the hair on that falls on her arm. To high contrast or something, looks like something else then hair.
2. the fur/hair/thing on her backhead.
3. the drool. to thick and not shiny enough.

not that I could do anything like this..
