I really think I'm close to the finish line now. Just a couplefew more paint layers on the dragon, the golden stain on the dragon and the girl's hair, coloured stains in the flowers, and finishing up various details here and there, and I'll be able to lead it up and declare this piece finished. What I'll do with it when it's done is another one to figure out. Maybe it will be the first piece I ever sell! (Wouldn't that be nice?)
Anyway, here are some photos of the progress I've made recently. These first two photos are from January 5th:
|Progress as of 5 January 2014 - you can see that the body of the dragon is further along than the head and wings|

After the above, I went into the head and wings and strengthened the line, as the line work was quite a bit lighter than that on the body. There are also a couple more layers of shading in the face and wings. Here's where the piece was yesterday:
|Progress as of 11 January|
The round mark to the left of the dragon's face is just a screw in the light table surface underneath. You can see that the dragon's face and wing are further along, closer in colour and line to the dragon's body.
There's been more work to the girl's hair:
|More shading added to the girl's hair and dress|
|More detail added to the castle; more needed in the shrubbery|
The dragon's face is coming along:
|I wanted his expression to be ambiguous. What's does he think of this situation?|
Also, anyone wanna buy it? (Ha ha.) :D Pin It Now!
