Dragon and the Maiden Collab by ToySkunk Dragon and the Maiden Collab by ToySkunk
This is my entry to :iconcolor-me-club:'s contest! :D I hope I get placed!

I haven't done anything like this before - the picture is basically a collab; the idea of the contest is to use the lineart provided and colour it in.

The beautiful lineart was done by :iconmanic-goose: and you can see it here: [link]

You're allowed to do a paintover... so I kind of have. :lol: I also may have changed the folds on the dress a little (cough cough) which, from what I gather, is also an acceptable change. :paranoid:

Anyway, I really don't have much else to say. I just hope there aren't any mistakes; I'm about to go to bed and I'm dying to submit this before I go.

Except - this is dedicated to Tom the Tapir. Oh yes it is.

Very much liking all of these. :D I can see great glowing effects from the weaponry in Soulsword Sisters especially, and I'm also tempted by the detail in Poison Ivy. I'll definitely have a bash at one of them at some point. :nod:

It looks like she's holding Frostmourne! I like how she looks really spunky and lively and doesn't have an impossibly large chest (lots of maiden-posing-next-to-dragon pieces do).

beautiful lighting and texture! Specifically the glow of the sword on the dragon, and the dragon's scales. I also love the texture on her sleeves. The lighting on the metal fence thing looks great too! I also love the background of the faded buildings. Really has a great fantasy feel to it.

This very well took my breath away. I had to stop and stare at it for a very long time before I could even look away. (and even then I came back again!) The composition of the piece seems well thought out, and all the elements very well fit together, instead of one piece overshadowing the others. (I wouldn't know what to do with a glowing sword.)

It is very beautiful. Anyway, I'll stop drooling all over your comment box, and let you get back to work now!
