yes! I have finally completed this painting, after  working on and of on it for two months. I finished cleaning up the lines, played around with the colors, and I am done (I think). Tell me what you think.  I spent at least 12-13 hours on this painting. I learned allot about the importance to experiment, create  and destroy parts of the painting , and to have a more playful attitude when painting. It’s so important not to get tight when painting. best to start loose and build on the picture instead of worrying about everything being perfect. I made it to 102 daily paintings!

  1. Fantastic painting, I personally really like the head, it has a strong and evil look. I also enjoy the sketchy style you used, it gives the painting a lot of… I do not know if it is the right word… grip, there are endless points for my eye to stop and look, instead of the clean and smooth style. I would do a great job as a book-cover.

    1. Thank you so much :D. I wanted to ask you, you said the painting looks sketchy. Does it look unfinished sketchy? I wanted it to look like a finished painting for my portfolio. If is does look unfinished I will need refine it a bit more. It’s no big for me to work on it more so let me know 🙂

      1. No, it does not look at all unfinished. Don’t worry 🙂 . With sketchy I mean probably the nice texture and colour variation on the dragon, instead of perfect smooth gradients. It is a wonderful portfolio piece. Complete and finished in my opinion 🙂 .

  2. Hey Maugryph – great dragon! All of your hard work really shows. But then I also like the bear skull. Thanks for liking my post. Since you hate Valentine’s (for now), you might like a post I did with a wilted flower for those of us without anyone to celebrate with. My last girlfriend broke up with me 3 days before Valentine’s – then called on Valentine’s to wish me a happy one! SMH.

    1. Thank you very much 🙂 Man that’s rough. Having a girlfriend break up with you days before V Day and then call you on that day is terrible. I hope she was being sincere and not just twisting the knife.

      1. Oh she was sincere. Just kind of clueless. And, it was a good source for poems. 8^). By the way – great screen name and avatar. Quite appropriate. Continued success with your art.

  3. The detail on the head is absolutely amazing. The scales are just great. You get such a evil feeling from the dragon specially the way you did the eye. It definitely looks finish. You don’t have to worry about that.
