Frozen Glory by natsumoka Frozen Glory by natsumoka
Took forever to finish this. I feel like a zombie now. Thanks a lot to the folks at conceptart for helping me with the piece (and showing how much of a failure it is...). Now back to practicing...

Many thanks to *kirei69 ^rydi1689 for the DD! Almost had a heart attack when I woke up with 500+ messages.

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-12-11
The suggester said: "Amazing atmosphere captured on Frozen Glory by =CharlotteXXI, very soft coloring and concept in general." ( Suggested by kirei69 and Featured by rydi1689 )

Really good piece of work, the colors are very vibrant and the artwork looks magnificent. What I find a bit off and dis-appealing is her face... Could use a little bit more work there... I especially like the dragon, and how it looks as if it nearly died... The background looks very well drawn and colored, but i find it odd that a dragon fight would be placed in a city, let alone it end in a small space such as the one you drew here. All in all, this work of art is AMAZING and i would give it a score of 8.5/10... Keep up the good work. :)

Wow. Very nive. It 's awesome. Vietnamese ancient costume of the girl is similar to kimono of Japanese.:) Perhaps it is because of both Vietnam and Japan are influence of Tang culture in the past. Who are she? Vietnamese celebrity? :D

Oh, this was derived from Japanese clothing and architecture actually. Our ancient costume is very similar to Chinese's.

Well, every failure is a step towards awesomeness (for a lack of a better word...).

My older artworks are horrible too. I just pushed myself forward.
