Returning from Montrouge contest, I decided to work again on this diorama to take into account what judges told me :
- make the gold shinner;
- improve lining;
- water was too matt;
- snake and tree were too close with their colors.
In addition I decided to :
change the scales of the snake to have a more natural render;
add a background to stay close to Boris Vallejo painting.

All acrylics.

Here's the final result

      I used AK water foam and snow sprinkles

    Certainly this version is richest, but the precedent was really top level work.

    • sk_drille

      With that version I’ve gone a bit far from Boris Vallejo painting, especially with water and at the same time closer with the background.
      Thanks for you appreciation of my previous work ;)

    À Montrouge elle était superbe, mais c’est vrai que là elle a encore plus de “peps”, elle paraît plus dynamique. Or

    The water and the backdrop are amazing. Then I looked at the model and the dragon. They are really nice too, but the first two things had more impact on me. Great scene!

      Thanks for your feedback Roman.
      About backdrop and water a bit too attractive, I hope they will catch judges’ eyes in the forecomming contests and that they will have time to look more precisely at the mini and dragon :)
