Gold Forest by TakayamaToshiaki Gold Forest by TakayamaToshiaki
This is an original illustration.
I drew it themed after Donatello’s David statue and the story of David.

Utterly beautiful! I love the red/gold/white color scheme and the lighting! The details are so fantastic, like the individual flowers, the dragon's reigns, and the knight's armor! And the androgynous knight himself looks very alluring, with the juxtaposition between his delicate face and his athletic body.

I'm surprised that no one has pointed out that the knight and his dragon are sitting on what appear to be a slain giant's head!

Thank you for sharing this piece!

The yellow on the shadows of the dragon is fantastic, this really blew my mind.
And you do the lighting so well!! It has that chiaroscuro kind of feeling to it.

How long does it take to do all the rendering for the little details?

Great job in keeping with some of the themes of Donatello's sculpture!
It was always amusing to see his rendition in the same room as Michelangelo's version. 
Michelangelo was the "mans man statue" and Donatello's had very effeminate features especially the face.

amazing work, well done!

If you are either gay or transgender and sensitive about that, I just wanna say... I apologize for nothing.

The art is amazing though!

I think his jaw might need to be squared up a bit. The jawline and the body usually fill out about the same time.

Amazing rendering skills, even this zoomed up, I still can't find any badly done or just lazy parts of this piece. The boy's face might be a bit too feminine, but to be honest I kinda like it :)
