I spent a full day of work doing a little bit of tidying and moving some stuff around before getting a good crack at this Dragon piece again.
Pinky red, orange and yellow and painted the tufts on the tops of the claws. Happy with how that turned out, I took another step forward. I took a iridescent copper and added a highlight to the stomach ribbing. This in turn advanced me to take out the Payns grey and add some depth and shadow on the stomach areas.
