Here's a figure that I painted as part of the Painting Pyramid video series. It was one of several "large creature" videos that were created as stretch goals as things moved along.
I was able to add a few extra touches recently, such as the rider!
Also, I added foliage from Hangar 18 and Gamer's Grass. The tufts came from Kings Hobbies and Games.
Those were elements that I wished were available to me years ago when this was first done. It was worth the wait!!!
The yellow leaves meant that I could emphasize the yellows in the front talons more, since that color would be repeated (and hence balanced) by the leaves of a similar color.
The rider's very fragile standard was replaced by a very nice and sturdy Raging Heroes sword... one of those extra bits that you get in the metal kits which come in so handy!
I was also able to reflect many of the feather and fur shades in the armor. I wanted that to be gold, but I also thought it would harmonize nicely with the reddish browns, umbers and ochres of the fur.
