Dispel The Darkness by Shadow-Wolf Dispel The Darkness by Shadow-Wolf
Commission for ~roothragon of his lovely white dragon being a badass desert mage at dusk in the white sand dunes. This got a lot more involved than I planned, but I'm glad for it. It was so much fun to work on! Originally Rooth commissioned me at my regular prices a long time ago, but paid to add hours to it, so I completed it sooner.

26 hours in Photoshop with an Intuos 3 tablet

So very happy with this piece. :)  I'm particularly glad I was able to actually be there for the inception, and share the experience over streams later.

Wonderful work, my friend. ^_^

So magic, and fantastic! The sky looks awesome and the dunes too.
Love the little lizard

Very cool piece. I adore the way the cool blues of the spell shades everything around it and then contrasts s well with the light peaking just over the mountains. Very magical.

I absolutely love this!! it's so detailed to the smallest thing! The color contrast with all of it is just stunning! I love the little lizard and how the smoke's caught up in his wing. This is just overall just amazing!!

Wow...there is so much good with this that I don't know where to begin! The proportions and clothing detail of the dragon, the whispyness of the magic or the elaborate waves of shifting sands. All your effort really shows in this! well done.

one thing I always tend to looks at is the colors, and my god how pleasing the colors are in this painting! the magic ball thingy he is holding just stands out well, but the background could have been a bit darker, however it is nonetheless an amazing piece.

Interesting in that we had a partial solar eclipse here on Sunday 5/20 that looked just exactly like what you have on the left side of the scene.

Like the look of focus on his face
