I like lots of spikes on my dragons and creatures but they are a real pain in the butt to put on…
Just a bit more clean up of some of the details and then ready for painting

Oooo!
I really like where this is going.

But, since this is the first paint, it will probably change :D

Thanks !
Hah, well, for once, I am mostly good with this first paint job. Miracles do happen I guess?
It has a lot more “tigerish orange” like color and variation than these pics show.
I plan to make the top of the head more reddish and have darker red down the spine for some contrast.

Thank you very much B-A !
I sincerely appreciate your frequent positive feedback and very helpful comments.

You know how critical I am of my own painting efforts, but in this rare case , I have to say I am very happy with the results.

My pics do not do this paint job justice. The colors are not as bright, monochromatic , and garish as the pics appear to show ; it is much more toned down and has a lot of subtle but evident variations in the reddish, yellow and orangish colors.

My goal is to create very unique and one-of-a-kind creations, and I think I achieved that goal with this one.

Still a little more work to do, and for once in this rare case, that does not mean re-painting the whole thing !

Glad to hear you are happy.
And yes, it looks great.
I love how it is composed and as Al said, balanced.
