It's been quite a while since I've had a chance to paint something for myself. Been doing realistic type commissions for fellow grad students, so I wanted to do something unrealistic for a change.
A lot of technical errors in this one (including some flat out crazy lighting screw-ups) but overall, I'm happy with it since the basic idea and tone of the pic came through pretty well. Much thanks to
for their help and suggestions. And man, there's gotta be an easier way to do dragon scales....
The usual. Done in Photoshop from beginning to end. No references for this one.
