Wow! This is really good Kim! Your skills have improved greatly over the last few months!! I now this will probably sound corny, but I'm proud of you :)

Overall this scene is very good, there are only a few things that stand out...

-First, the white. Be very careful using solid white in any picture as it draw the eye like a magnet. Solid any-colour draws the eye, but black and white draw it the most. Try dulling it down a smidge (off-white so to speak), and maybe even adding a faint texture to it.

-The woman and the dragon look very good together. You've done a great job making the tail wrap around the woman. My only suggestion (besides adding a faint shadow underneath both the womana and dragon to ground them) is to add some faint red highlights onto the dragon where its tail is really close to the woman and her red dress. Bright red reflects alot of light.

Otherwise, excellent work! :clap:

:typerhappy: Aww thanks Dan, you can be proud you have been helping me along!
Yep I know/think I am getting better. It was a personal challenge I set myself at the start of the year as a self-paced learner!
I will remember the the feedback about white and black and also about bright colour reflecting.
Thanks heaps
Kim
