It's a beatiful representation of feudal Japan! The colors & how you use the shadows, the way the light shines down into the valley, total jawdropper!
Not trying to be nitpicking, But why the European-styled dragons?
I like dragons, especially the asian ones with the snake-ish look, thats why.

I make my own prints and ship them (I'm unsure of DA's longterm quality so I use only archive quality inks and paper).  If you're interested, send me a note!

Wow! How is even possible to sketch this? This honestly looks so real and lifelike, even though I know dragons aren't real ... or are they? :)
Anyway, I really love this picture. Thanks for posting it. :-)

This reminds me a bit of Rivendell, from Lord of the Rings. Tranquil, majestic, powerful, magical, peaceful...

And, of course, epic!
