Alex’s Mug

alex9

A experimental painting of my dragon Alex. I wanted to fuse more lizard like qualities into him. I might of added too much. I spent too much time revising this painting over and over.  I’m on the fence if I like the redesign or not. I started this with no prelim sketches. Bad move. This is my first painting using Manga Studio 5, so that is probably another reason I spent longer on it. I’ve used MS4 in the past  but MS5 is amazing and has the same photoshop tools I NEED to use and are important in my workflow like masking, selection tools, and transform tools. I hope that it will also let you save tool presets but I haven’t found it yet. I MIGHT just be able to leave Photoshop for good. CC you later Adobe 🙂

Dragon: Grinder

animeish-dragon-paint-style-test-7

Another color painting experiment. Named this dragon Grinder. Tried different proportions. I noticed that biped dinosaurs had thick long legs and shorter arms. I thought I would try it on a dragon. Naming it Grinder was just random.  I like my original black and white drawing better.
Painted in Photoshop.
