I really enjoyed using the cast shadow to help create focus via the silhouette of the Knight against the Dragon. The composition features a big X for a change, along with a few triangles thrown in.

Woah, never seen this one before.  That is one sweet dragon. But the knight better hope he's got a shield of fire resist. And a good burn ward at he local apothecary.

Apart from the general technical excellence, I love the way you've used colour to reinforce the fore, middle and background.

I love the attention you've paid to all of the knight's gear.  One can all but hear it rattling.

This is absolutely stunning! The slanted ground plane, the bright colored dragon, the cast shadow, which was a great idea and looks awesome, just everything in this piece is wonderful.
Beautiful work. c:
