Dragon Lily by LaminIllustration Dragon Lily by LaminIllustration
She is a dragon who through years of training and discipline developed the ability to take on humanoid form. It is a rare and unique skill for a dragon to obtain and well worth praise but she now fears that what she has become is strange, fragile, filled with fear, envy and mistrust. But in order to move through this new world she must adapt if for no other reason than to understand the mind of man.
The sketch for this image can be found in Leather Wings Semblance one of the artbooks published through Lamin Illustration & Design.

Wow. Your artistic ability is absolutely stunning! This is such an odd but unique image and it is very well done. Must have taken a while to create this. It obviously shows that you take a lot of pride when it comes to your work. All of your work is remarkable, but this piece in particular is my absolute favorite.

First of all, let's talk about the detail that is etched into the picture. The detail is beautifully done, and an artist who is able to craft detail like this definitely deserves some praise. The detail is what makes this piece absolutely radiant. My favorite part of the image are the horns and the scales on the woman's beautiful, alien face. The horns are so unique and very realistic looking. My favorite type of art is realism and surrealism and this has both. The woman's eyes are captivating with the luminous golden hue, and her expression holds a mysterious aura about her.

Another thing I want to point out is your sense of color and contrast arrangement. You did such a beautiful job on both. I love the reddish-brown tone to the picture. The blending is so carefully done and all these elements bring the painting to life and you captured them brilliantly.

I think this image is one of the best I have seen in digital painting so far on DA because of its uniqueness. I can only aspire to be like you when making a digital painting like this. This is just very well done! Bravo!

So I came across this image as I was looking for something to use as an example for a high breeding Dragon Blooded from the White Wolf RPG system Exalted. I don't think there could be a more perfect example out there, however unintentional it may be. This is now what I'll be using to show all future players in all of my games. Expertly done and breath taking.
