In this assignment, we were supposed to design a creature with a full body view, texture, minimal lines, and details including: skins, scales, hair, and face.
I started off by looking up references on dragons, and dinosaurs. Some particular inspirations may have included: Monster Hunter, and Pokemon monsters. When I have finally come through a final design of my creature, I did the usual gray scale procedure, by adding gray tones and highlights to it.
Then I came up with the theme of an Ice Dragon, and decided to use all cool colours.
However, this painting incorporates mostly variations of blue colours.
I was quite happy with the results. The cleanliness was there, silhouette was convincing, and leg armors were well rendered. In addition, I think this painting could've been furthermore developed, if I've added the scales on the skin.
