Great colours- this came to mind:

You don't know what your power has done to me
I want to know if I'll heal inside
I can't go on with a holocaust about to happen
Seeing you laughing another time
You'll never know why your face has haunted me
My very soul has to bleed this time
Another hole in the wall of my inner defenses
Leaving me breathless, the reason I know

That I am stricken and can't let you go
When the heart is cold, there's no hope, and we know
That I am crippled by all that you've done
Into the abyss will I run

~ Stricken, Distrubed

"It's a long way down to nothing at all..."

You did a great job with using lighting to add some emotion and dramatic effect to this painting. You also captured the motion of falling downward beautifully with the blood droplets. Really, really nice job ^_^

I'm drawn in by the luminescent colors and contrast with the blood. Well done for only 3 hours!

Wonderful dragon! The expression in his face is pretty powerful and it makes me feel bad and care about him. A really good job. Well done!
I love this dragon!

As I said before, this is absolutely stunning and I'm in utter awe of your skill and vision.
I think the lighting effects and gleam you created is very unique and is striking despite its soft and subtle quality.
The expression and form is equally as impressive, I love how detailed his expression is despite him being a dragon and you can instantaneously see the conflict of pain and frustration.
I think the slightly twisted body shows great physics and I especially love the details of the tattered wings and the textures of the clouds.
I'm also amazed at how short a time frame you created this in.
(I can't give a formal critique but I felt as this was for your practice I should try and be helpful ^^" )

Thank you very much for this! ^^
You really inspire me and I hope that some day I'll be able to match this level of skill and vision =)
