Daily Painting No.26- Self Portrait as a Dragon

dragon self portrait 2

If you ever want a challenge yourself as a artist: try to draw yourself as some animal or creature, yet still make it look somewhat like you. Bonus points if non-mammalian.  It’s mind numbing, and a bit creepy. A fellow artist told be to check out your progress, you should reexplore a piece you did in the past and recreate it. I tried a self portrait like this about a year ago https://maugryph.com/2012/10/24/dragon-self-portrait/. I think I have improved substantially. Since I only spent about a hour and 10 minutes on this portrait. Last year’s portrait I had spent about 3-4 hours, and it looks very lame.  Does this look like me, you ask? Well.. the eyes do at least. Frankly it looks somewhat like my dragon character/mascot I been drawing forever except with my eyes. (Note: To all dragon slayers and brave knights. I’m not a dragon, plz don’t slay me. This guy on the other hand… there is a weak spot in his scale armor on his left breast FYI (thanks Bilbo))

Self critique: The left side of his face, the lighting needs fixing, his fins are too dark. The fin on his mandible blends into his neck and needs to be fixed.
