    Here is where the fun starts:

    IMG_20180111_135647.jpg

    I found the image of the woman in Facebook and I just felt that it is perfect for this story.

    IMG_20180111_135719.jpg

    I am using a 9x12 clay board with gesso. Here I transferred the line drawing.

    IMG_20180111_135748.jpg

    Masked the girl using a transparent book protector. It behaves the same as a frisket but it is thicker and cheaper.

    IMG_20180111_135814.jpg

    Using Wicked Detail Smoke Black and my micron, I drew the textures for the eye. Then applied detail yellow as a base.

    IMG_20180111_135851.jpg

    I carefully erased my reflections to keep it white then sprayed Detail Crimson red until I get the saturation I want. I then went back and reinforced the black and the reflections.

    This is what it looks like without the mask. And this is where I ended today's session.

    I have a specific idea on how the dragon would look as far as colors are concerned. I also are very fond of creating my darks using complimentary colors. I just don't know which hue of red would work great with which hue of green. So I tried all combinations:

    IMG_20180114_130733.jpg IMG_20180114_130821.jpg

    Finally I settled on Golden's Jenkins green and Createx deep red.

    Using small figure 8's, the red goes down first, heavier where it will be darker (shadow ares).

    IMG_20180114_131234.jpg

    Green on top. Scratching for highlights.

    IMG_20180114_131327.jpg

    Just to give you a sense of size...

    IMG_20180114_131453.jpg

    I am using a blade for more precise highlights and a pencil eraser for more general highlights.

    IMG_20180114_131630.jpg

    Here's where I stopped. Hopefully I can get more done a little later today...

    After a few hours of work... scales are a lot like hair, in my opinion, very time consuming but really worth the effort...

    Continuing on:

    IMG_20180118_115701.jpg

    Shadows in first...

    IMG_20180118_115730.jpg IMG_20180118_115809.jpg

    Colors in and shadows are re-adjusted.

    IMG_20180118_115833.jpg

    Started work on the mouth. I am pretty much using the same 3 colors for the whole dragon, deep red, Jenkins green and magenta black...

    IMG_20180118_115906.jpg

    Further adjustments on the darks. Using burnt umber, I did the horns and teeth. And at this point, I think it's time to move onto the heroin of our little tale. I still have some adjustments to do but I will do it after I put in the rest of the composition.

    This is getting better and better. Thanks for the SBS regarding the colour and shadows too.
