Dragon Breath

Fire Breathing Dragon

Here is a great red dragon terrorizing a kingdom of some sort. I had a really hard time with the actual fire itself. I’m usually one to paint glowy amorphus backgrounds that may imply some type of fire is going on, but I think this is the first time I’ve actually tried to define flames. It took a few tries to actually get to a point that I didn’t absolutely hate, but I think what I did here is a good starting point to try to push farther in my next piece. I must admit, I’m not 100% on the dragon and it’s textures, but I’m trying not to over analyze and just move forward to the next piece without being so self-critical that I just trash the vast majority of what I create. Sigh.

I recorded this piece and you can see it on the YouTube all the kids are talking about.
Here it is:

Here’s the finished piece:
