Ahhh, that is what it is! I've looked at it a few times and wondered whether it was a dragon or something else. I like the vibrant colours in this ... and all the leaves and flowers. His design is also wonderful. The light gives a really good effect, I don't really know if it comes from him or the sky, but that's nice, because it gives me a feeling that he's part of the forest and the forest is a part of him ... and you have definitely improved since last time!
Oh! What a wonderful creature! I love the fur details, and how you paint the leaves of the bushes. I find myself getting vibes of medieval tapestry artwork! I bet this would look amazing on canvas scroll. Excellent work!
