Photopainting is fun <3 I build that background out of abou 25 photos and painted it. =)

This is my first critique, so I'll try to make it a good one.

Firstly, you've inspired me to try photopainting. I like the effect of combining of the drawn dragon with a realistic background. It makes it look like a cartoon character drawn into a live action scene. I like how you've made it so the light source of the background is the same for the dragon, making it "agree" with the photopainted scene.

Your choice of color makes the dragon look kind of shiny. I'm not sure if this was intentional, but it makes the dragon and his book kind of stand out from the background, immediately leading the viewer's eye towards it. The book he's holding looks a little "faded" though, as if the colors are muted. This could be intentional, but I think the colors on the book should be a little more saturated (just a little) to bring it further into the foreground.

Overall I like this picture and I hope my critique was helpful.
What do you think?

wow das sieht echt irre cool aus!
Und lese ich das richtig? Den Hintergrund hast du aus 25 Fotos zusammen gestellt, und selber gemalt?

der hintergrund sieht einfach nur irre abgefahren aus. abgezeichnet habe ich richtig verstanden: photomontage abgemalt? nicht übergemalt? das klingt ja so aufwendig
und sieht sooo hammer aus

Also:
Ich habe zuerst mal einige fotos gesucht, die ich benutzen kann und möglichst mit dem gleichen lichteinfall. daraufhin habe ich die alle in photoshop hineingeworfen, geordenet und zugeschnitten, sodass sich auch die eprspektive nicht zerstören vom bereits gezeichneten Drachen.
Als nächstes habe ich die farben aufeinander abgestimmt und danach habe ich dann begonnen die aufwendige fotomontage abzuzeichnen =)

Das ist bis jetzt eines deiner besten Bilder, echt. Nur die kleinen Füsschen/Zehen des Drachen finde ich nun etwas zu "mingelig" (klein).
Die Photomalerei ist dir echt Klasse gelungen und sieht aus, also vom Stil her, wie irgend ein Ölgemälde. Der Drache mit seinen sanften Farben und Schattierungen fügt sich ohne zu stören total gut ein. Ein sehr stimmungsvolles Bild. Die Technik würde ich öfters mal anwenden.
laberlaberrababerblabla... Es gefällt mir total, echt super hingekriegt, bin so erstaunt und erst heute morgen habe ich wieder an deine alten Bilder gedacht und jetzt das! xD Zu Genial, echt super! xD

Der Hintergrund sieht ja aus wie ein echtes Foto :omg: Wie hast du denn das hinbekommen? :wow:
Der Drache selbst ist wunderschön, seine Farbe passt sich dem Hintergrund so sanft an... Und der Gesichtsausdruck ist voll entspannt.
Ich find's richtig toll :D

this is stunning. however have one crit. and i would write a critique if i had the enabled feature.
the dragon looks as if it needs more detail because of how highly stunning and detailed the background is. the dragon looks out of place and like a cartoon stuck on a photograph. i think with more detail on the dragon this would be a perfect piece.

Selbst deine "einfacheren" Posen sind einfach immer cool. Das haste echt drauf, aber das weisste ja auch.

Aber ein Buchlesender Drache wird für mich immer merkwürdig aussehen :D

Very well done, the new background technique looks amazing!

Beautiful details and shading really bring this picture to life and the background is quite stunning without looking out of place with the dragons itself. I can really feel the difference in the new technique you used and it just feels that much closer to the real thing... well, in terms of fantasy!

Now this brings to question... what books do dragons read? Again, excellent work!
