Daily Painting No.43 – Copy of Fierce Dragon Rider – the dragon’s head – Part 2

badass dragon copy 2

Still working on this study. Its about me learning about refining and polishing. It’s getting there. I’m starting to ‘figure it out’. The method is basically crosshatching. I love crosshatching in ink. For some bizarre reason I never figured out that I could apply the technique just as well to painting. I was sluggish at first but what getting in the groove near the end of the hour. It should take me 2-3 more hours to finish this. I painted this in Photoshop. Time spent on this session: 1 hour. 2hours total. Name of the artist who painted the original painting I am studying/coping is still unknown. Next time I study/copy a artist’s painting, I will make sure I know the artist’s name :0. I will work on it more on Friday.

iPad Dragon sketch

I’m out of town again. I have another massive headache. Strangely enough that didn’t stop me from drawing. I was having extreme artist’s block on what to draw so I sketched this dragon on my ipad. Lately I haven’t been painting on the computer but instead I’ve been sketching allot on paper. I have some animal figurines that I’ve been practicing on while watching movies on Netflix. I just haven’t been motivated to finish any paintings. I will try to motivate myself to draw a landscape tomarrow.

I used the app called procreate on my iPad to sketch this dragon.

It’s been a while since I’ve updated. I have dragons on the brain. However I’ve have been working on a interesting illustration involving a man in a parachute… and zombies! Will upload it as soon as it’s finished. Started sketching dragons a week ago in a more traditional way. Need to start finishing my paintings again by adding details. Tried my best at details with this piece, even watched a short tutorial on how to add dragon detail patterns such as scales…so I attempted it but I didn’t feel I did too well. One thing I am happy with is the dragon’s face. I was tempted to just crop the painting just showing the head and neck. Only spent about a hour and a half on it so it isn’t too bad for the time spent. Used Photoshop and a wacom tablet. Any tips and pointers on adding details to dragons are appreciated.
