A little piece of concept art for my main antagonist for my project!

Overall, I am very impressed with this piece and it popped out to me from your profile page and I just HAD to view it! My absolute favorite part is the way that you captured the lighting and the glow from the orb the dragon is hovering over. The way that you cast the light in all directions while throwing down the cast shadows looked very realistic and beautiful. The red glow on the dragon itself and the texture on the ground is wonderful!
However, I was a bit disappointed with the lack of detail within the scales. Instead of light lines outlining the scales, I feel that it would be really nice to see it fade into a shadow to really make them pop so much more, or even just adding a tiny bit of shadow to indicate the crevasses that the scales create at the base. I also wish that the intense reds on the chest were a bit more blended with some of the darker shades to define these scales more. With the crazy amount of detail in the ground and the orb, I feel it would be beneficial to bring that level of detail into the scales as well.
I really do love this conceptually, and I enjoy the use of negative space employed by leaving out a portion of the dragon and adding in very small details on the ground like tiny pebbles. Very great work! I enjoyed seeing this one a lot.
What do you think?

It looks like the dragon is glowing from within as well as the orb. Those jaws remind me of the fiery hairline cracks in lava or a CG dragon egg. Interesting bubbly structure on the scales, too. It's kind of gravelly, which is a nice feeling of toughness with the spikes.

Wow! Is it just me, or do its underbelly scales seem to be wisping away under the heat of the orb?

Indeed it's not, but I find it incredibly interesting to hear what other people see -- sometimes they find symbols and meanings that I haven't thought of, yet it fits so well.
