Quickly Put some fresh paint on the wings just see how they look. Some more detailing to do.
I am pretty happy with the left to right wing conversion.

Worked on abs, beefed up thighs with smoother transition into the tail.
Wings are just loosely fitted on.

Put a base coat of black on just to see how it looks all tied together.
Plan to taper the forearms some more, streamline back of neck, attach wings , work on back.
Plan to put spikes running down the spine from back of head down through tail.

Started working the back and roughed in some spikes. Not sure if I will keep the spikes.
I need to base coat and then see how they look.

Beautiful work. And i have to say it's time to pick up some clay and start from scratch. In my vho i think you have the chops to make something completely original. 8) 8) 8) 8)

Working on detailing and blending in the spikes. Still not sure if I will keep these spikes or not?
They do add visual interest to the back, but not sure if I like the size/scale of them...

Sorry for poor pics where you cannot see all the details, but I only have a quick base coat of black on it with no color variation and no dry brush detailing yet. Thanks for looking.

Well, I spent a ton of time trying to get the flame effects in the cracks of the skin, but I don’t like it.
Looks too cartoonish.
So I am going to repaint the whole body black and go for a more earthy tone style on the body.
Something along how the wing webbing paint looks now.

Sometimes that is the best thing to do.
When you are not getting the results you want, trying to compromise usually leads to regret down the road.

Hope this 2nd attempt goes better for you.
