    Nice, I like it. Your composition is good on this one, Leo. The detail on the texture is very nice. Probably, the only thing that I would give comment to is the brightness level on the highlighted areas. Since the background is already dark, I would probably darken the "dragon" a little bit more to bring more detail on the textures and to lower down the exposure on the bright areas. Other than that, a very good executed image for me.

    "Asta e exact dreapta, Leo." Although I think you did a global darkening instead of selective darkening. Hehehe.

    Hahaha! You will eventually reach that level, Sir. If you are using Photoshop, the way I do my selective darkening and lightening is by adding a new blank layer on top of the image layer. Then, I fill this layer with a 50% gray color by going to EDIT > FILL > 50% gray and then change the blending mode of this layer to "overlay". Upon changing the blending mode, you won't see any changes on the image. Only when you apply a brush stroke on this gray layer that you will see the changes you can make. A black brush will darken the areas you are brushing. White colored brush will lighten it. Normally I set my brush to a medium hard brush with 100% opacity and 3% flow so I can build up the density of my strokes. You can try this method if you want.
