Stare at this EVERY DAY at my desk at work, and I love it to bits: just as much as I did the moment I first laid eyes on it. :)

Nice job with the textures and stuff.
looks like... did you paint each of the scales individually? You're crazy, man.

That is why it is fantasy. It was not supposed to be accurate.


Dry brushing, it's the way.

Don't get me wrong - I still like it.
The fading and all that is great. I can't seem to do that too well on my stuff. *shrug*
Keep trying I guess.

Dry brushing is a really helpful technique for blending. Sometimes I use watered down colours and then dry brush over it.

The nose/snout could be a little more pointed and narrow. This looks like the snout of a T-rex. I dont know if it is suppost to look like that but it still is REALLY good!

Thanks a lot. :)

I used a brushes to paint my sculptures. Random sizes and textures. There was a lot of course dry brushing going on with this one.

I usualy Folk Art and Apple Barrel acrylics. No specific. Just which ever one I manage to buy when I go to the store. :)
