Xull'Rae by dahlig Xull'Rae by dahlig
This artwork is the newest and last one I will submit in a long time to teh Deviantart community. I will probably be involved in an illustration project and will not be able to submit my artworks before the book I draw for will be published.

Anyway:
This is my probably most detailed work I have ever done.

It took my a month of non stop work, but I am pretty satisfied with the outcome.

It was a commission and the character is copyrighted to Lisa Lassiter. :)

I cannot count how many hours it took me, but well, MANY.
Everything painter, several references used and the fields on the bg are pretty manipped being honest cause I got lazy ;]

Anyway I hope you enjoy the picture, comments are always welcome!

Ps. Want a closeup? go here! [link]

This image actually has inspired the central nugget of a science fiction story that has popped into my head.

This isn't my favorite piece of hers, and I agree on the the steed looking cartoonish, but why do you feel the need to point out every flaw in quite a few of her works? You both have very different styles, and neither are better or worse than the other. If you don't like her paintings or style, then just move along, opposed to critiquing her work. If she wanted a critique, she would ask.

Looks really cool! One part that is slightly bothering me is her left hand. Why would she rest her hand on her hair? It seems rather uncomfortable to me..But overall I really love the motion in the picture :) Great job

Wow, I like it. The richly detailed background is just amazing. You really spent the time to fill it up. I feel like I'm actually looking off a mountain. You might want to watch your proportions a bit more though. The way the girl's torso is twisted I think the ribcage should be more visible. The way it is, she seems oddly boneless.

I hope you don't mind my critique. Otherwise, lovely work.

I'm not quite sure about the legs of the animal, specially not the front legs. They just dont seem right, even though it is a fantasy creature, wich makes no rules of how it shall look. But I don't think they matched up. And the other legs seem so thin. anyway, it's a really great picture, I love all the details and the "touch of life" you gave it! I absolutely can't see where you get all that patience from :)

Pretty good! I enjoy this concept and have been wanting to do a similar idea myself, of some girl/nymf character riding a tame but monstrous creature.

sooo nice! made me think of the freedom of soaring up in the air with a magnificent beast in your control. keywords for me: freedom, power, and control.

i love the dragon! the woman because of her coloring made me think that she's one with nature.

Her face is magnificent, the hair is great as well :D I love the whole thing except one detail. The dragon looks like he's floating, the shadow, something's wrong with it. This picture is amazing though! How long have you been doing this?
