oh wow. your work is so amazing. actually, i decided to comment on this work, because it stands out - and i thought it was a traditional..i just have to say itone more time.. this is amazing. the colours, the light..reminded me instantly of gourney - and i should give traditionals a try again -gnah, you're great! but - why doesn't the rider fall over? ^.^
oh god, i could watch at this one forever. well done!

Stunning work, pal.
Colors composition and idea are really nice.

I'd like to point out some points that I dont like so much as well.
The first would be the leg of the lizard turning back like this. I could propably live with it, if it was just the leg, but the foot, beeing in this direction looks wrong to me.
If you had a ref, I'd really liek to see it.

The second poin it the gnome rider. Basically he looks fine, I'd just like him to pop out a bit more so you can better differentiate between him and the saddle.

Still a great piece, keep it up.

I don't remember clicking on the "ask for critique" radio button. I tend to give my unsolicited opinions through the private message service. Then our dialogue has a chance to be less confrontational.

Stellar! I especially love the positioning of the lizard mount. It's so incredibly unusual and such an interesting and original way of looking at how riding a lizard would really be like. Aside from that I just love everything about it, colours, the composition just work. I could learn a lot from you!
