I really like this.  The dynamics are incredible!  I like the patterns on his scales, too.  The dust flying is pretty awesome too.  Gives a great sense of motion. The tongue hanging out makes him look kinda goofy, almost like he has a hidden playful side.

Good lord, that's fantastic! I love the 'out of focus' look to parts of it to draw the eye to the head.  Great stuff!

Wow, this is amazing! The portrayal of movement is very well done, as well as the realistic lighting. He looks real enough that I feel like I should run away in case he jumps off the page! I would love to see more like this in the future!
