So the above is the finished one (updated 27 june from the image below) I had fun with the light rays, and then wanted to make the image all around darker. always something more to do, but Im going to move on methinks.
I am taking a self taught class from Andrew Hou from Schoolism.com
I haven't tried his methods, so this was a fun process. I usually draw on paper then scan, then color, etc. This way was completely from the tablet.
Lots of things that need to be fixed and worked over, obviously, but this is a start. Just realizing some of my textures are backwards...oops.
It'll be fun to do the gold reflecting on the scales. Im going to try to actually finish this one.
