Well, this is the first time I've entered a Weekly Challenge, and I gotta say it was pretty fun.

I think I positioned the rider too far up on the dragon, and the background could be better somehow, I'm sure... but I think a simple background works (plus with 7 mono-chromatic colors, I think it'd be harder to make identifiable details in a complex background).

Any C+C?

The part of his leg/saddle under the shield feels a bit too checker-board like and jumped out at me!

Great use of the 7even colors!  Good job!

a good first entry to the comp, hopefully this will get people to stop bitching about palettes :P

Heh, actually, I liked that one a lot too. Then for fun I made a green one which I also like... I think I might just expand the other colored one and fix all the mistakes. Like, actually showing the whole dragon and giving it a transparent background. I think that'd make it more worth re-submitting than just recoloring it. ;)

I tend to agree that he is riding to far forward. I like the background, it makes it dynamic looking
