Absolutely LOVE the lighting and color choices here. Just the perfect contrast of black lines and smooth colors; nothing too fancy to distract. A viewer can just stare at this and soak it all in like a artist sponge.
Nice topic choice too! Dragoon was one of the cooler designs from X4 (in my opinion) and the area of which you fight him was neat too. I've seen a few artist renditions of this fight but I really like the composition of this one. It's very clean and clear to absorb.
Another nice addition to your gallery of impressive works. Thank you for sharing this with the rest of us at DA.
Everything about Magma Dragoon looks great: the lighting, the design, and the fire fist. The background is also epic. Unfortunately, it doesn't feel like a battle because X looks too passive. I really disagree with your focus on boss weaknesses.
