The first Impression I had viewing the preview of this art-piece was "Wow ! Contrasts !" And I love pictures that present many contrasts. In general, this drawing works perfectly, we feel things in watching it and it seems to invite us in contemplation.
So I contemplate, and I let my feelings rise.
The first, evident, contrast you perfectly use is a contrast of light. The Dragon's breast become the light source of the dark landscape. We see the captive character trying to escape from a giant plant. The roots form a dark mass, contrasting with the lightness of the breast-smoke. The rendering is perfect, this picture tell us a story. If we see the dragon trying to break his bonds, in great difficulties, I have the impression that he's succeeding in breaking free by the smoke.
About the technique, here we find another contrast between the detailed character and the textured part on the left of the pic. We've got a force which attracts us behind towards the right of the drawing, into the dark. Will the dragon really escape ?
Finally, the last contrast which is used perfectly is the saturation contrast. We're evolving in a grey-green environment broken by a single red mark on the dragon's cheek, and the blue eye.
I don't know this dragon, I ignore his/her history, but after contemplating this picture, I hope to see him/her escape, and fly.
Thank you for this great moment of emotion. I don't see anything to change in this perfect art-piece, I just would know if this adorable character will succeed in escape
