Tillydragon by AndyFairhurst Tillydragon by AndyFairhurst
This is another dragon painting. I have decided to dedicate this to my baby daughter Matilda ( she will be born in January :D )

Painted in Photoshop.

WIP [link]

Thanks for looking

*The eyes were done with a fly's eye on a layer set to 'overlay' over the top of the dragons eyes. They look much better at a larger size [link]

Edit* I wasn't happy with what was going on with the trunk. I couldn't get the transition right as the trunk got further away. After failing to get the desired effect I decided to cover the area in question ( small area but it spoilt it quite a bit ) with lower branches. Anyway I think this looks better now.
