the lighting reminds me of happy childhood moments in the countryside. aaaah

Great, such great textures, lighting and ambience.
I really like the concept; The way the dragon is textured, the way his wings are made of leaves, the small details such as the parasite...

Well done.

AMAZING man I love it...

Stunning! I love it!

Edit: Can we get a bigger size pretty please? Say around 1920 pixels wide? I would really love to have this set as my wallpaper. If not, that's ok. Just thought I'd ask.

Thanks to everyone for the comments, and to CGS for the Award - I'm really grateful!


PS Umer - there were three seperate layers to the wings - each blended differently - veins, colour and water (a ripple effect dodged out of the underlying layers which gives that kind of 'shimmer'). The wings are also slightly transparent. Hope that answers your question!
