This picture is a reworking of an alternative sketch for the Dragon's Lair:

The figures and Dragon were changed around, and I employed a different lighting scheme. The shafts of light help silhouette the Dragon's head and shine a spotlight on the main figure to create a focal point. Additionally 'spokes' of branches, spears, treasure, etc, guide our eye to the central action.

Both Dragon's Lair paintings are great, and I really like the activity in this one. The way you punctured the gloomy light with bright patches really adds to the composition. :D Fabulous work!
