FULLVIEW is DUTY!
Ok, here it comes, more devilish than the WIP -ones, i know its very dark, but i changed the loss of details, for the new focus on the important parts
Have decided to leave the details on the dragon to the head and the shape, instead of painting countless scales, sometimes a mood compensates more than hours spent on details.
This collab was a lot of work, i think i have improved a lot(thanks to those who commented in the following threads)

I think many of the details of your image came out better than I ever would have expected. Her face in particular is very awesome looking.
I like the idea of teeth in the dragon, but the teeth that are there sort of don't seem to fit with the rest of the image, to me. They look a little less polished than the rest of the painting. Perhaps some smaller and more widely spaced teeth, like you'd see in the mouth of a crocodile would feel more fitting. It seems like the rest of the dragon is a bit more realistic than the mouth full of teeth.
Overall, great work, I love the colors you've chosen. The woman's wardrobe is beautiful! I don't know how she's staying in there, but it looks lovely
I love how aggressive it is despite the overall "docile" stance of the characters. The colour palette and character facial expressions helped a lot with that.
It kinds sucks that the shield got a bit too lost though. I liked it a lot more in the sketch. I can see why you simplified and faded it but maybe a tad more detail could bring it to the surface a bit more.
Her chin really bothers me - it looks scarred and that distracts too much. It's not "cool" scarring, it just looks like someone poured hot water on there. Maybe smooth that out a bit
Overall, FANTASTIC PIECE!
i know what you mean, overall i´m not so happy (still) with the shield idea, so its better to hide it, and leave it up to imagination of the viewer - otherwise i´´ve added a sword and some gold in the back - that would be too much cliche ...
to be honest, i liked that dirty look on the face, gives it something of a "hard work" look, and the scars underlines a decent "occupational disease"
And I guess if she plays with dragons she's gonna get burned so it's all good HA!HA!HA!
hast du auch ne andere version?
This is an awesome piece of work
I do however wish you had left a hint of the tones from the WIPS. I like the red, I just kinda wish the undertones had been left with more variations.
well i had the idea to make it just darker first, but with all variations some details were gone - so or so, but it was refreshing and a dramatical change that fits when i tried this.
I loved the WIP's and I think you've got great expression on both the woman and the dragon
