Illustration Friday - "Tales and Legends"

Here's my attempt at actually painting something for this week's topic- I'm not sure how I think it turned out.  My dilemma with me painting is not knowing what is loose looking and what is just sloppy.   I guess I'll just keep at it- that's all I can do:)

I like it ! This is quite sad for the human being, but it's funny in another way !

This piece is rockin'! I don't think it's sloppy at all, it all looks done on purpose. Very nice dragon monster!

Your work is always really fun. This is great. Kind of scary, but in the imagination only. WHew.

I struggle with the loose vs. sloppy dilemna all the time too. I think you achieved loose in this one and it's fun and vibrant as well. nice job!
