So I got a paint over for this picture, and it really showed me how lame the colors were. Here are some detail shots showing before I saw the paint over and after (minus the red in the background in the first one. I did that after then saved over the original.)
I’ve pretty much been repainting this picture, but it’s so worth it. It’s kind of fun figuring out how much color I can get away with, but for me it requires a lot of trial and error. Mostly error.
I’m still need to work on the color in those feather-like scales and probably in the jaw a bit. So yeah, it’s still a WIP.
