Sometimes I plan landscapes thoroughly with thumbnails and other times I have a 'basic idea' and get to work and see what happens.

I'd love to use this in an ambient electronic mix of mine. It is absolutely stunning. You would be credited directly on the video and there will be a link back to your dA channel and this work, if you would allow me to use it. If you like, check out my channel: [link]

Thank you and have a nice day.

D: Is it that bright? On my screen it's easy to spot (it looks like a giant noodle lol.)

My screen's brightness is turned down, but I didn't know it would affect shadows/light that much. X:

Mmm, Well for me it blends in pretty well with the tone of the white. It stands out and it's noticeable, but it doesn't...stick out right away? O:

My scanning computer and eff-off computer both have different lighting, it drives me batty T__T

Lovely composition, although I've the feeling it could be done a bit better. The dragon was only spotted after some serious searching. You could consider tweaking your compositional features to direct the eye that way. Right now it likes following the water.

On my screen it's obvious where the dragon is. The only thing I can do composition wise to bring out the dragon even more is to throw something to the right pointing to the center of the work (the area where the dragon's head is.) I thought of this but it would make the whole thing crowded. Since I already had a two/fourths deal going on with the left I didn't have much choice for the right side but add some subtle detail.

So instead I aimed for a classic 'read style' composition. The human eye (in the western world) reads left to right. The dragon is supposed to be like a 'ohh, so that's why it's called dragon falls.' IDK I'll work on stuff like this a bit more, maybe add just a tad of contrast for those with bright screens. (I have to turn my brightness down because it bothers my eyes/gives me headaches haha.)

Thanks for letting me know the right side is a tad bright, this may be the case with other screens as well so I'll keep this in mind. :)

Legitimate concerns, for sure. Clutter was something I considered a bit, and probably why I didn't suggest anything in particular. I also thought about a perched bird as a possible option. Beyond the first glimpses, this does at least have all the subtle detail necessary to encourage the eye to search around, though, so your "read style" composition does have some merit here.

I haven't found your scenes to be too bright, personally—this one included. The level of contrast is comfortable, it's just that odd quirk of composition. It's just one of those aspects of art that requires some extra forethought, I guess.

Ah, thanks. A bird may have been a good choice to break up the one sided view (one I haven't thought about even though I drew them in the artwork itself. CX )

The water has really great movement, it looks like its really flowing downwards, and the contrast is really great too. I love the subtlety of pretty much everything on the right.

This is stunning.
The sharp lines are very reminiscent of traditional ink techniques... the whole thing has a delightfully organic feel for a digital piece.

reminds me a lot of Guild Wars art. Not saying the creative place it comes from is there, but the water colour sort of style, faded stylisitic aproach.

I haven't played the game (though I really want to.) I don't have a computer powerful enough to run the game, all I have is a laptop haha.


Though Shadow of the Colossus is a big atmospheric inspiration of mine. :)

My god, this is my favourite scenery piece all day. I'm getting a big oriental taste out of this with the angular lines, intimate brush strokes and mountain design. The mist and the ethereal dragon are a nice touch, and I love what you did with the streaming water. Awesome job!
