Update: the hindlegs and tail has been darkened

Alright, it's not the first. However, this is part 2 of 3 of my plan to paint spyro and cynder. If you haven't seen part 1 (spyro) just click the thumbnail below.

Cynder is a fun dragon to draw and she's much easier to draw than Spyro. Eventually I'm going to paint a background as well. Tell me what you think and ask me questions and I will try to answer them.

Time: 10 hours 28 min 43 sec
Photoshop Layers: 48
Cynder copyrighted to Sierra (I think)

You just keep getting better. This is amazing! The bracelets look very realistic along with the accuracy of the scales. You did a great job on the horns also. The wings look absolutely magnificent, especially the detail u added into them and the coloring. The details in her hide is also very accurate. Also it her eye that catches my eyes, very realistic and vibrant. Very beautiful. And yes, you did a great job desaturating the picture to make her look black instead of purple. And the shading is amazing, good work on that!

Now for mistakes. Looking at the lower half of her body, it looks alot more brighter than the upper half. Well, more paler I guess I should say. And the left hind leg looks kind of weird too. Maybe you should add something indicating the mid segment of her leg is above the last segment instead of it looking like it got bent to the side.

Other than the mistakes, you did absolutely wonderful! After each picture you paint, you get better and better

This is amazing.  And you didn't reference Skylanders which is major bonus points!  I get deep pockets of rage when people go around saying "Cynder is my favorite Skylander" and then I want to hit people with heavy blunt objects.
