Daily Painting No.32 (Dragon WIP part 1)

dragon painting

Here be a dragon. the head is based on a dragon ‘self portrait’ painting a did a week ago and I used it as a base for this painting. the eye(s) are the only thing remaining form the old painting. I needed a break from still life painting today, yet I made sure to make a light reference. Even though this dragon is out of my imagination, the light ref should help me a lot. I come to the conclusion it is foolish to painting without a solid thumbnail and a light ref (and possibly a color study when I brave up to paint it). I have a dual screen so I find it enjoyable to paint while watching a movie. When wal-mart had its black-Thursday sale (I guess Thanksgiving should be renamed Debts-giving) and bought about 20 two dollar DVDs and a few four dolor blu-ray disks. Most are not on netflix so it felt justified.

I will alternate this painting between my still life paintings. I am not concerned about speed, just making looked finished

Self critique:the fins look to flat, add depth, make the scales on the neck interesting, research back wings to make them correct.
