Process for this painting
I forgot I had these photos! So I'll share, for anyone that for some reason may be interested to see how I go about doing my dragon portraits. Step 1:
The supplies! I'm a simple person when it comes to my art. Tupperware dish, check. Toilet paper (we were out of paper towels that night lol), check. Also I added in the second photo my grand painting mat - a piece of paper! I'm so queen. x]Step 2:
The background! I use a dark and light color, with the lighter area in the center for focus. Play around and blend until satisfied. Let dryStep 3:
Nothing drawn in pencil, just dove right in! Using the lightest color of the dragon, painted the main body shape.Step 4:
Gradually working darker, started defining body parts by adding details and shadowsStep 5:
Finish up by increasing intensity of shadows where needed, highlights and other details such as eyes and (in this case) the sparkles.
