A dragon is guarding his home on a large spiky mountain.
I’ve been working on and off this painting for 5 month and put at least 17-18 hours of work into it. I think I’ve getting somewhere in my paintings 🙂
I made so many mistakes, I had to fix and refine it. I learned a valuable lesson about painting. Step away from your painting and leave it alone for a while. I would of caught the stupid mistake long before. The cat and the dragon in the same plane didn’t work. The painting needed a foreground so I moved the cat forward. Added atmosphere between the dragon and cat. the stupid ‘fog bar’ was too strong so I removed it. The painting was too open so I cropped it a bit. I also blended in more of the painting. I make my lines too big, next time after I get enough of the paint on. I will be tossing the line layer altogether. Something I must keep in mind. I felt I could of saved time if I would of worked the sketches out more and not just jumped into painting. Fortunately, I was able to save this illustration. I won’t make the same mistake next time.
